I consider myself a massive Muse fan. I first watched them live in Stuttgart in a small club in 2001 and became basically addicted to them and their music. So this is not a neutral review (which you can very rarely find on imdb anyway).
Looking back at this performance, it is especially noticeable how 'raw' it feels compared to their more recent shows which are also always great, but seem more choreographed. This is only three guys on stage, playing songs from their first two albums and developing an unusual energy.
There are small mistakes in some of the songs which only add to the raw power and authenticity they had at that time. I was really worried about Matt Bellamy because he seemed so fragile and sang, played and screamed his soul out every evening. Fortunately, my fears were proved false.
It's also nice to see them play songs they very rarely play live today like 'Showbiz', 'Hyper Music' or 'Megalomania'. So if you want to find out where Muse came from before they were catapulted into mainstream, see this! It is musically vastly superior to their later 80s-pop-influenced work.
I hope they will return to being just an epic kick-ass rockband in the future. With this band, you never know what happens next.
