Album of the year??, 8 Oct 2003
All of the above and so much more!!
For people that are already fans of Muse's individual style and enthusiasm for their art, then they will be pleased to know that Absolution is as good an improvement on Origin of Symmetry as Origin was on Showbiz. And Showbiz was fantastic in its own right.
If you are contemplating buying a Muse album for the first time then please do not hesitate, I don't think that there is any way that you can be disappointed. The way that Muse combine their exhilarating guitar rifts with classical and electro pop samples is truly awesome and unparalleled.
True enough that Muse's style is slightly different in this album with an overall more mellow sound and at first it takes a little getting used to but that does not detract from the fact that this is the best album that this inspiring band has produced.
Definitely the best album I have bought this year, and for some time before that too. I promise you wont be disappointed......
