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

Behold the Power

This is some of the best original rock on earth ...... maybe the universe.

Love every single song!!

This is by far the best album by MUSE.
I feel like I am dreaming whenever I hear the Map of Problematique.
Assassin's drumming is crazy and Knights of Cydonia just makes me rock my head.
Went to the concert in 2007 in Toronto and it was a BLAST!
I hope they will come again soon during their world tour :)

An amazing album of galactic proportions

Another amazing album from the best band in the world, Muse.
There's a grand sci-fi epic in Knights of Cydonia, which is not even from this world.
There's crazy drumming on Assassin, soaring vocals on Glorious, pulsing electronics on the awesome opener Take A Bow, lyrics-of-the-year winner in Hoodoo. And then there's the must-have Supermassive Black Hole. And so. much. more. This allbum is worth every single cent.

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...
