Even better than Black Holes and Revelations,
This review is from: Absolution (Audio CD)
The first Muse album I heard was BH&R which I gave 5 stars simply for the overblown cheek of the thing. Well I have to say this album is even better. It is the same eclectic synthesis of virtually every rock genre you can name, prog, metal, punk, grunge, britpop, stadium rock, new miserabalism (radiohead, coldplay) but has more subtlety. I particularly like to emotion of Sing for Absolution, the sturm und drang of Stockholm Syndrome, the gentle funk of Endlessly and the upbeat terror of Thoughts of a Dying Atheist.
If you like rock music, you'll like this album. Fully Recommended
