(2-LP set) 1999 release by British trio. The British trio’s 1999 debut, Showbiz shares many things in common with Radiohead here including producer John Leckie who also produced The Bends. From the angst-filled vocals to the esoteric lyrics and dramatic dynamics, Muse is not afraid to wear their influences on their sleeve, but they manage to stand on their own merit too with a promising and epic sound that is simultaneously melodic and raw. The tunes on Showbiz are spectacular, stadium-sized monsters that mix brute noise with a captivating fragility, all from a young band with unlimited potential.
