    Haha. I expected something like that would come up :lol:




    The thing is, the argument being made here isn't about musical talent.

    I think that musical talent is about being able to play a load of musical instruments really well.

    If that's the argument, I'd say it's very probable that Trent wins.

    Seeing as I despise Muse with every cell of my body, it's a knockout to Mr Reznor.

    This is the best I've heard someone describe Muse:

    "I once tied a couple of cats together by their tails and shoved them into a set of bagpipes filled with helium and chucked the ungainly contraption at Kate Bush's face. To my surprise, and utter regret, the resulting cacophony was a note-perfect rendition of Muse's entire discography including all hidden bonus tracks which may, or may not, actually exist."

    So, my NIN-related thread is merged into the official one, yet this is okay?


    AWESOME.

    Because it's Matt Bellamy? Why not just title it "Discuss Matt Bellamy's Song-writing Credentials" (credit to Cale).

    I mean, I'm not looking to deliberately start shit with the staff here, but an explanation would be cool.

    Mark was just looking for an eye-catching thread title.

    He'll surprise us all tomorrow with a long essay on how Muse are really shite.

    Instrumentally, at least, I think Matt's got Trent beat. I mean, Matt's a borderline piano virtuoso and a pretty amazing guitar player too, but it's a long-running joke amongst NIN fans that Trent's been playing guitar for 20 years and still sucks at it. :lol:

    I have a friend that's a classical pianist, and he's amazing.
    I played him Just Like You Imagined once, and he's just sat there in awe, apparently Trent is an absolutely amazing pianist/keyboardist (sp?)

    Even though I don't really like Muse all that much I will have to agree that Matt Bellamy is more talented than Trent Reznor.

    Trent Reznor has gone from hero to zero in a matter of days.

    Yeah, this really depends of if you mean song writing or technical talent. I would set Matt is better technically (albeit maybe with a lesser range of instruments) and Trent better at songwriting (and more original).

    I also think Trent should get bonus points for having a better voice. I like both the singers but Matt's voice seems far easier to get ticked off at <_<.

    I'm not going to agree with this statement in any way, but I absolutely adore Muse and Matt Bellamy, but I also like Trent Reznor. I prefer Muse over NIN so I may be biased, but watching Matt playing his guitar and the piano, it's just mind blowing, and I think Muse are a fantastic band musically.

    There we go, that's my input

    I'm gonna get lynched for this, but I've never found Trent Reznor that special. He actually gets boring sometimes. Sure, I like NIN, but Muse is a far better band. Matt Bellamy is an excellent guitarist, as well as a kickass pianist. Don't get me wrong, like I said, I do indeed like NIN, I just don't find anything really special about Trent Reznor.
