iTunes Editors' Notes

Either Muse singer Matthew Bellamy grew up idolizing the glitzy romance and bellowing caterwauls of popsingers such as Bryan Ferry, Bono and Radiohead's Thom Yorke, or there's an incredible coincidence goin' on — made even more pronounced by the fact that his group performs an attractive blend of arena-glam rock buttressed by fat synthesizer lines and excitably funky grooves that often recall the similar grandiose visions of the aforementioned. The Devon, UK group's fourth studio album, Black Holes, is put together and paced like an old school album, beginning with the introductory mood of "Take a Bow" and building toward crescendos that work most effectively heard in sequence. "Supermassive Black Hole" channels T. Rex and Prince and nicely dovetails into the U2 meets Depeche Mode shaker "Map of the Problematique." "Invincible"'s shimmering dreamlike quality recalls the pop patina of Travis' Radiohead-lite, setting up the purebred aggression of "Assassin," where Muse emulate a hard rock ensemble. It's this flexible ambition that allows the group to escape the derivative tag and makes this ambitious album a pleasure to listen to and to deconstruct.

Customer Reviews

Brilliant

I found this album to be a work of art...not as great as their previous album, Absolution, but still powerful. I don't think many albums can leave you speechless...but from the irresistably evil chant of "you'll burn in hell for you're sins" from Take A Bow to the motivational power that Knights Of Cydonia had when saying "no ones gunna take me alive". Brilliant job Muse!!

Catchy

Please stop comparing Muse to 'other artists', they are certainly becoming a class of their own. Luckliy for the Twilight movie and Guitar Hero they have even greater exposure to the general public. As for their songs, they're catchy and awesome. Love that fuse between electrics and piano!

Muse are MADDD!!!

This album rocks... my favourites are Knights of Cydonia, Supermassive Black Hole, Assassin, Starlight and Map of the Problematique... WELL DONE MUSE!!! :)

They started the first incarnation of their band while only 13 years old, changing the name of the group from Gothic Plague to Fixed Penalty to Rocket Baby Dolls as time...
