MUSE's latest album is a recording of the Wembley Stadium concert on 16 and 17 June 2007, which includes both CD and DVD.

A fantastic album.

I recently discovered OneRepublic (MySpace), a Los Angeles based rock group (originally formed in Colorado), which performed in a recent episode of Smallville.

OneRepublic had great success on MySpace before releasing their debut album Dreaming Out Loud late last year. Lead singer Ryan Tedder has a brilliant falsetto, when he uses it.

Dashboard Confessional

Dashboard Confessional (MySpace) is one of the better emo groups, which has a great sound courtesy of lead singer Chris Carrabba who sings with great anguish.

They have been around for more than eight years, releasing their debut album The Swiss Army Romance in 2000. This was followed by another four albums, with the latest The Shade of Poison Trees released last year. I still think their best work is Dusk and Summer.

As with most emo music, listening to it depends on mood.
