This album is a masterpiece! Every track is special in its own right, and the Muse lads are certainly on top form! From the start, this album shows creativity and imagination. 'Newborn' (my personal favourite track) has a riff that will force you to jump up and 'mosh'. Then into the powerful guitar in 'Bliss', and through into the funky bass-line of 'Hyper Music', the energy on this album never stops. Tracks like 'Space Dementia' and 'Citizen Erased' are emotional but still rocky, and the piano in Space Dementia really is a triumph of musical genius on behalf of Matt Bellamy - whose voice on this album is superbly unique. With the addition of inventive solid drumming by Dom Howard, and groovy bass played by Chris Wolstenhome, the quality of this album is extremely high. Bellamy's songwriting skills are wonderfully portrayed in this incredible album. If you're into rock, grunge, metal, whatever!, just buy this album and it is sure to inspire you to go and write some amazing songs! This is a must-own album for anyone who appreciates music, particularly of the guitar-ish rock variety!
