aMUSEing Posted by: from: Wisconsin on I am new to muse. I first heard "Knight's of Cydonia" while playing guitar hero... once I was able to, that is. I woke up to the radio one morning and found out that it was them who sang "Starlight". After hearing these two fantastic songs, I made it my mission to find out more. When I picked up their CD, I was blown away by what was on it. This song has a driving force to it that not many other CD's contain. His vocals are superb and seem almost U2'ish presented in a Queen'ish style. It may sound a little like those two bands but they are a band all their own. Their style is unique with the instrumentals that they use and their lyrics, which can be bizarre at times. The songs are great for entertaining because of the constant instrumental sounds and melodic vocals that are easy to find the beat and dance to. After browsing their past records on various sites, this one stands out the most as the one I personally like best. I do enjoy their other songs from previous CD's and will probably buy them eventually, but for the time being, this one has really struck a chord with me and I would highly recommend it, it'll be like a revelation to you.

One of the Best Albums Posted by: from: on Probably one of the best albums you will ever listen to and you are doing yourself a disservice by not listening to it.

Muse delivers again Posted by: from: on Muse again proves that they are one of the most creative bands in the world. Not only is this album different than what other artists are putting out, it's different than what Muse has done before. This album provides a great range of sounds all centered on rock. Supermassive Black Hole and Map of the Problematique contain dance beats, Knights of Cydonia brings back memories of Queen, and Starlight perfectly encompasses what pop music should be.

Bellamy's best Posted by: from: on Proving that the general public noticed Matt Bellamy's talents at about the same time this album came out and it has continued to grow, not 10 minutes after buying this album recently, I heard "Supermassive Black Hole" at another store. This sort of progressive-ish music doesn't usually penetrate to store playlists unless the music is particularly well thought of. I finally got around to buying this and it shows the maturation of Bellamy and the band.

Great Posted by: from: Mundelein, Il on Muse have been headlining stadium shows in Europe for years, and with Black Holes and Revelations, they attempt to do the same in the States. Their sound mixes elements of Bends-era Radiohead with the more bombastic parts of Queen and U2. Make no mistake, Muse are not a Radiohead rip-off. They have forged their own sound, particularly on this album. The album begins with the bleak, foreboding Take a Bow, with an aching vocal performance by Matthew Bellamy. Other highlights include the Depeche Mode-esque Map of the Problematique, the anthemic Starlight, and the gorgeous choral elegy Soldier's Poem. Muse should also be seen live at all costs. A very consistent and powerful album, one of the best of 2006.

Outstanding Album Posted by: from: Austin, TX on This is my favorite Muse album. The music is creative and inspiring and expresses the fullness of life in all of its excitement and love as well as pain and despair. Knights of Cydonia and Starlight are the most well-known songs from this album, but the rest are great too. Well worth the buy!
