  • 'Black Holes And Revelations' delivers a stylistic overhaul from Devon's premiere epic space rock outfit Muse. The follow up 2003's smash 'Absolution' looks to merge Matt Bellamy's trademark powerful riffs with dance beats to produce an upbeat album with influences moving towards Prince and Franz Ferdinand. Co-produced by Rich Costey (Rage Against The Machine, Audioslave) and including the single 'Supermassive Black Hole'.

 Very good but not what we expect from Muse

I find this album slightly dissapointing, in that to Muse fans it just isn't as good as their first three albums. Although this has turned them into complete superstars and allowed them to headline Wembley twice in a row, Matt Bellamy seems to relie more on strange effects rather then a classic riff. No riff from this album even comes close to Plug in Baby or Hysteria etc. However, the album starts with a bang, and a big one at that, the first 4 songs are fantastic, Supermassive Black Hole is different in every way and it's brilliant. However, the album gets progresively worse as it goes on, the songs get slower and the riffs get worse, though exo-politics and assassin are fast and brilliant. Muse, however end with one of their best songs ever, Knights of Cydonia, which certainly makes this album alot better. Muse fans should still buy it, but for someone who hasn't listened to muse id advice Absolution of Origin of Symmetry

 deffinately not their best

when i first heard this album i thought it was good all round but after giving it a proper listen im quite frankly shocked that anyone can call this album brilliant after hearing earlier muse albums
showbiz, origin of the symatry and absolution are al magnificent albums and there was just somthing lacking in this album
i think starlight and supermassive black hole are both great but this album just seemed a bit too pop adapted
the songs lack the excitement from old masterpeices like microcuts, citizen erased, time is running out, butterflies and hurricanes etc.
i think this would be a good album for most bands to release but muse have set the bar high and have failed to jump it with this album for me

 Ambitious All-Out Creative Space Rock

First track 'Take A Bow' is a trance-rock space-bound freakout that has a political message underneath. It sounds great too. 'Starlight' is a pop piano-based rock ballad that tugs at your heartstrings. It's also very melodic. 'Supermassive Black Hole' a sleek robot-rock single with Prince style vocals. 'Map of the Problematique' sounding like an adrenaline pumped sci-fi film soundtrack.
The above four songs are brilliant and the high quality and diversity of sounds continue, ending with the brilliantly histrionic, apocalyptic western alien invasion sounding 'Knights of Cydonia'.

 Awesome album again!

Absolutely another great album. I really pretty much like all songs on this. I have a feeling that Muse just gets better by the time, but still I won't rank their albums. I think IT'S A CRIME to rank the other album above other, because all albums of Muse are master pieces and they all have to offer something what the others do not. Muse is my favourite band, and actually only band in many many years, which I can say that I'm fan of. And that's quite a lot from a band, to impress me that much.

 Best album ever!

Brilliant album, definately the best out of the Muse albums so far i think. I have the others so i just had to add this to my collection. The guitar effects on the tracks are amazing, and just the whole album is very impressive. Would definately recommend to anyone looking to hear what Muse are about!
