Album Review: Black Holes and Revelations - MUSE

Music ****
Sound **

So far it's my find of the year. Never thought I'd like this kind of music ...

Basically it's a combination of heavy distorted guitars with synths. But that's not what makes this album so interesting, it's the myryad of musical influences these guys have taken in. This, mixed with groovin' rhythm, makes this album a keeper, practically every track has something to offer.

It starts out with typical songs: Take a Bow's tension just builds and builds and builds (careful with the volume control here!), through Starlight, and culminating in the very catchy Super Massive Blackhole with its falsetto voice. Map of the Problematique reminds me of Robert Miles.

Then it just explodes:

Listen to Soldier's Poem (60's oldies), Assassin (trash metal), City of Delusion (spanish guitar), and Hoodoo (starts out with flamenco then builds with classical piano),

The sound is damn compressed though ...
