Customer Reviews


The important thing to realise about Muse is that they are progressive. They are constantly trying to change and alter their music. As well as this, you can appreciate their albums on different levels. Admittedly, I'm not a fan of one or two one the album, but the songs that I do like (eg exogenesis, unnatural selection) just are amazing. Those who have only found Muse due to BH&R may feel disappointed by this album, but long time fans realise to expect the unexpected from Muse. So stop the comparisons between albums, because it's a pointless exercise; they are supposed to be different. 3 Absolution albums would get a bit tedious.

Absolutely amazing

The most unfortunate part about the album is that it ends!


if you're a hardcore Muse fan you'll probably love it. If you're a classical music fan you'll probably hate how cheesy its "hollywood soundtrack" symphonic harmonies are. If you're a Queen or an Abba fan, you'll think it's downright rude to have stolen half their melodies ('United States of Eurasia' and 'Unnatural Selection' are perfect examples respectively). 'Uprising' is bound to be a commercial hit because it's repetitive and musically very basic. Track 11 is rather beautiful, but alot of that is to do with the fact that majority of the track sounds suspiciously like Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. I know Matt Bellamy was inspired by Rachmaninov on Absolution but that was far more subtle and actually worked with the style of music they were writing at the time. I don't mind bands doing different things, that's what music is all about, but basically everything that Muse fans will call 'different for Muse' on this album has already been done before. I was disappointed, because i really thought they were on to something 'different' and original, but still quintessentially Muse when they wrote 'Supermassive Black Hole,' and a few of the other tracks on BH&R. In my opinion, they should have stayed on that path.

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Muse's fusion of progressive rock, glam, electronica, and Radiohead-influenced experimentation is crafted by guitarist/vocalist Matthew Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dominic Howard. Bored by the sleepy life provided by their hometown of Teignmouth, Devon, the three British friends began playing music together. 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...
