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

Black Holes and Revelations - 10/10

This is one of the greatest albums i have ever heard. Muse have made the perfect album, with incredible songs such as Supermassive Blackhole, Map Of the Problematique, Assassin and Knights of Cydonia. The title of the album and the themes of the album are about the bands fascination with science fiction and political outrage. Take A Bow - 10/10 Starlight - 9/10 Supermassive Black Hole - 10/10 Map Of the Problematique - 10/10 Soldier's Poem - 8/10 Invincible - 8/10 Assassin - 10/10 Exo-Politics - 9/10 City of Delusion - 10/10 Hoodoo - 7/10 Knights of Cydonia - 10/10 Glorious - 9/10 The bands new album, The Resistance is set to be released on 14th September 2009.

Exceptional Album 10/10

Muse has delivered a truly outstanding album that can rightly be named a masterpeice. Talent oozes from titles such as "starlight", "Supermassive Black Hole" and "Knights of Cydonia". This is beyond a doubt, “a must buy.”

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...
