Muse - Absolution

Created: 20/10/05
Probably the most pompous, overblown, operatic rock album of 2003. It charts an impossibly wide range of emotions - the screaming piano track "Apocalypse Please" is followed by the delightfully slinky "Time Is Running Out", with it's effects-laden bass and thundering guitar riffs. Then there's one of the finest guitar tracks ever, "Stockholm Syndrome" then my favourite song, "Hysteria". Juggernaut bass riffs and guitar solos make this a joyously sexy song. Then there's the simply gorgeous "Blackout" - I once heard this described as "the song people will be waltzing to in Covent Garden in 50 years" and I suspect it will. Butterflies and Hurricanes must surely be Muse's finest track to date. Quoting the superb Sergei Rachmaninov, and yet keeping their rock identity is a feat Muse pull off with great aplomb. The last four tracks on the album are, in my opinion, not quite up to par on the rest of the album, but the first ten tracks more than make up for it. I can't recommend this album enough to anyone who likes music - you can't help but admire the musicianship that is obviously present in Absolution.

Best album I've ever heard

Created: 28/02/07
This is the best Album I've heard in my life. Muse truly does their best work on this album. every single song is a hit. the lyrical range goes from hysteria, to apocalypse, to love, to atheism, governments, and loneliness. so it pretty much covers everything! Dominic Howard, Matt Belamy, and Chris Wolstenholme, have great performances in this album. creating great music and doing some techinically advanced stuff. Overall I recommend this album to everyone, since in my opinion it really is the best rock album in the world.

Must-Have Muse!

Created: 14/04/08
Wow. This enthralling album takes you through the deep, dark, depths of Muse, from the quasi Rachmaninov piano solos to heavy rock. Hysteria - excellent track with a really 'phat' bass line. Time Is Running Out - Cool, collected, and slightly disturbing. Thoughts Of A Dying Atheist - fast moving, fighting it's way through the beauty and serenity of Blackout.

If you love Muse, you'll love this album. If you don't love Muse, you'll love this album anyway - it's a must-have for any alternative rock fan.

Muse Rocks! by Michael Kirk-Hamon

Created: 20/11/06
Suddenly stumbled across 'time is running out',wow what a song,just had to get my hands on this album,naturally ebay was the first place to stop,so I landed myself a real bargain of a fantastic album purely because it was a bit 'dated'.Now all of a sudden I am a muse fan,and where else to get all their albums in one swoop,yep,you guessed it,EBAY!! I certainly was not disapointed with this album,each track is so diverse but still has that big band,heavy all rock feel about it,with fantastic lyrics,not bad to say muse is only made up of three guys,amazing.
