Besides the insane riffs, brain melting solos and tight-ass rhythm sections, Muse songs are best known for their ultra polished productions, often stuffed with copious guitar overdubs, synth lines and orchestral instruments.
One of the finest examples of this is Knights Of Cydonia. A hugely complex track, it features crunchy, reverb-less guitar and jangly strummed acoustic work before opening up to extreme distorted guitars playing low, heavy chords, reversed guitars and clean guitars soaked in reverb and delay, playing mellow chords, arpeggiated triads and a whole lot more. Phew! That was exhausting to write.
All hail Matt Bellamy, a true 21st century guitar hero.
