Matt Bellamy Explains Muse's Madness (A Top Story)


.
On Monday Matt Bellamy Explains Muse's Madness was a top story. Here is the recap: (Radio.com) Although they're a mere trio, the larger-than-life sounds produced by British prog-rockers Muse carry the weight of bands twice their size. An arena rock band to the core, Muse's musical dexterity has earned them comparisons to Rush and Queen.

So it came as a surprise to some when "Madness," the second single from Muse's latest album The 2nd Law, shared more musical DNA with classic Depeche Mode and dare we say it dubstep than anything else. "Madness" eschews Muse's usual guitar-driven pomp and complexity for an electronic pulse that's far more minimal and quietly emotional than most anything in the band's extensive catalog.

"I kind of felt like that would be a good direction to go in for us, because everything we normally do is quite overblown and theatrical and all that stuff," Muse frontman Matt Bellamy told Radio.com in an exclusive interview. "I was quite into the minimalism of it. So it was written in that way. It was just me alone in a room, jaded, basically [laughs]. That's how the song emerged."

Apparently Muse's fans were into the song's minimalism as well. "Madness" not only reached No. 1 on Billboard's Rock Songs and Alternative Songs charts, it's nominated for Best Rock Song at this year's GRAMMYs.

"It's one of those rare songs for me where it all just came at once," Bellamy said, noting that the words and music to "Madness" were crafted simultaneously. - More from Matt and a stream here.
