Pinpointing Muse's primary, uh, muse is neither difficult -- if you said Bends/OK Computer-era Radiohead, give yourself a gold star -- nor particularly insightful to point out at this stage. It's an old knock. Just the same, not making note of the uncanny resemblance seems a bit disingenuous and remiss, sort of like writing about Theory of a Deadman and not mentioning how the band sounds (exactly) like Nickleback.
