Anglo For Your Ear: Muse’s “Map of the Problematique”

In my mind, their best song, and I’m kicking myself for not including it on my 2007 “best-of” list. The intro is so fabulous that the rest of the song can’t help but be a letdown, but the rest of the song is pretty damn good too. The vocals feature Matt Bellamy at his most Thom Yorke.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
