What's everybody's opinion on one of "the best bands America has never heard of"?

They're a trio from Teignmouth, UK, who perform songs that have techno, progressive rock, and classical music influences. Most of their songs are at a fast tempo, have memorable riffs, and interesting lyrics, sung with falsetto, to say the least. Muse have released four albums thus far, and have a fifth lined up for mid-September. Their albums are:

Showbiz
Origin of Symmetry
Absolution
Black Holes and Revelations, their "breakout album"
The Resistance
, due out in a couple weeks from this post.

Their lead guitarist/vocalist, Matthew Bellamy has said that he has been influenced by Jimmi hendrix and Tom Morello, guitar wise.

Their more "mainstream" songs, IMHO, are:
Knights of Cydonia, from GH3.
Supermassive Black Hole, from the first Twilight movie.
Hysteria
Time Is Running Out



You can look them up in wikipedia them for more info.

I think OoS or Absolution is the best. It took me a very long time to fully get into showbiz.
