★Album Review
1997年,乐队成立于英国德文郡的特恩毛斯。99年末出版了自己的首张专辑《Showbiz》。据说,乐队在制作这张专辑的时候并没有考虑关于签约公司的事情,所以这张专辑应当是乐队最自我的一张,因为它是在毫无压力的情况下完成的。《Showbiz》问世后,欧美的评论界都将这张唱片形容为“缪斯”带来的《OK Computer》(Radiohead在97年发表的惊世之作,并被某杂志评为上世纪最伟大的摇滚唱片)。这张唱片和《OK Computer》确实有这很多相象的地方,但并非是某个旋律或是某句歌词,而是他们的风格。事实上,自从Radiohead发表《OK Computer》之后的两年间,主流市场上一直没有一张类似风格的专辑出现,全是一些英伦软式吉他流行曲,就在这个时候《Showbiz》来了,并且得到了最广大歌迷的响应。乐队凭借着第一张专辑就轻而易举的征服了大英帝国,更不容易的是,他们也同时受到了美利坚合众国的热烈欢迎。要知道,一个英国乐队要能让刁钻的美国人看上眼,那简直如同中国队进入世界杯一样充满了奇迹色彩。

The musical touchstone for the British trio Muse is obviously Radiohead and that fact is crystal clear from the smoldering opening cut, “Sunburn.” Their John Leckie-produced debut, Showbiz, is strong on angst-filled vocals, esoteric lyrics, and dramatic shifts in sonic dynamics. Hailing from rural England, singer/guitarist Matthew Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dominic Howard average 20 years of age, so there’s plenty of potential for them to grow into a sound that is more of their own. In the meantime, Bellamy does an impressive job of aping the quirky, nervous vocal tic of Thom Yorke on songs like the mid-tempo, Mellotron-driven “Muscle Museum,” and he cuts loose vocally on the soaring “Cave” and on the lovely, mournful ballad “Unintended.” Showbiz hints at the potential in this young band, and it should be of interest to many Radiohead fans.
