    has anyone used seetickets.com for tickets before? I've read some bad reviews about it so I'm not sure...
    Been to many, many gigs, and the only trouble i've had with seetickets, which was not really their fault, was when the royal mail (*****) lost my tickets, and the woman on the phone was very helpful and shouted at them on my behalf until they managed to find them the DAY of the gig and deliver them to me just in time. Well also i guess there have been some minor hiccups in trying to buy tickets, sometimes it seems to be pot luck as to if you get through.

    Well surprisingly I'm going to disagree with you :p:

    Yorke is a good vocalist but I think Matt is better. He has such a vocal range, with most vocalists these days they can only sing a certain way. But Matt's shown that he is a brilliant vocalist; you get beautiful vocals in Unintended, Soldier's poem, then those great rasping vocals from Space Dementia, Micro Cuts and in Citizen Erased you have Mr. Bellamy at his best. I'm not saying Yorke isn't good, he is. But I much rather listen to Matt.

    Yes there is better pianists and composers than Matt, but are they part of a rock band? And I really really think they aren't many better guitarists better than Matt, and that's ever! Hendrix and Jimmy Page yes, and maybe slash from GnR, Kirk Hammett, and a few others.

    All this added to his live performances, the Hullaballo version of space dementia, I haven't seen many better live performances. I think there's no doubt that on stage, Matt is more mesmerising.

    And to finish, you said 'Muse are more rocky whilst Radiohead love to experiment'. This implies Muse don't experiment? :confused:. I mean this is one of the things Muse get criticised for. The first three albums are similar, The Resistance is totally different with them combining rock and classical influences. Exogenesis!!! That isn't experimenting?! And don't forget BHAR, it has everything: electric tone and a low bass notes, synth cords, glam rock instrumentals, acoustic ballads, mainstream prog, dance rock...

    Thom Yorke is good but as you can see I clearly hold Matt in higher regard. And to finish, Radiohead were an influence just like Queen were an influence. Radiohead didn't significantly shape their style, I say only Showbiz is similar to a Radiohead sound.
    Nah Yorke is a better vocalist. Not saying Muse don't experiment but listen to Kid A and tell me that album isn't much more experimentalist than Muse have ever done.

    I didn't really mean to start an argument at who is better, both are very different as JohhnySPal pointed out quite rightly but more comparing the vocals of Yorke and Bellamy who are unquestionably similar. Consistency wise Radiohead win there. In Rainbows is fantastic, over 10 years after their first arguable masterpiece with The Bends. I do think The Resistance wasn't particularly strong and neither was BHAR overall. Still are great albums i think don't get me wrong but Absolution and OOS were their best works. I hope Muse can get back on track with their next album!

    museobsessed, i used to be annoyed and dislike Radiohead, give them a chance, they are bloody brilliant and worth listening to and if you like Showbiz i'm use there is definitely a part of you that will like some Radiohead at least. I've been hooked on the song Reckoner, utterly fantastic. Kid A i can quickly see myself loving too, sounds fantastic second listen. See, i'm only getting into them but loving it!

    Ohh Thanks for the sensible response.
    Humm. I'll grant that I havn't heard much of Radiohead. I got OK Computer as I know how many people love that album, but it was all so slow and whiney and I got disinterested. I do like No Surprises (:love: the tinkly bits haha)

    I am actually giving Kid A a chance on spotify now just to prove how willing I am

    I agree with just about everything you said. The only thing I will say is that MB is a much better vocalist live. There were one or two points where I wanted to cringe at Reading (I'm looking at you, Creep. Oh my GOD I can actually say I've seen Creep live ).

    I do think Muse have dropped off the boil a little bit. However, you have to remember that (excluding Pablo Honey) albums five (HttT) and six (A) are arguably Radiohead's worst efforts (which is saying something), but they then came back with the immense, amazing, wonderful In Rainbows. Muse are on their fifth album. Catch my drift?

    Phoebs, I wouldn't try starting with Kid A tbh, it splits the fans enough, let alone newcomers. The Bends is the best place to start, that's not too depressing. I believe there are a load of full-length concerts on YouTube, such as Glastonbury 2003 which is sublime; I'd try watching those if you have an hour or so free

    Apparently I can't rep you until tomorrow Benjamin sir. Do you purposely collect neg or will a simple pos suffice?

    They'll be available through loads of places, not just SeeTickets.

    Here's a link to the pre-sale, which will list all the prices for various tickets. There's only Level 5 seated left so you may want to hold out for the general sale tomorrow morning, but it gives a good indication
