4 stars What a great album! I was blown away when I first heard it. The opener 'Take A Bow' is very dramatic and bombastic. It's written against G.W. Bush, like many bands are doing these days. 'Starlight' (a very potential single) is a typical Muse-song. Romantic and sad at the same time. 'Supermassive Back Hole' sounds like Prince in his glory days. Amazing song. 'Map Of The Problematique' is one of my favorites. The chords in the beginning are beautiful. 'Soldier's Poem' is a smooth song. It brings rest between the loud songs Muse is making. 'Invincible' is variated in her beats and sound-effects. Good song. 'Exo-politics' isn't too special for me, judge by yourself. The best part of the album has yet to come. The last three songs are so good.. 'City Of Delusion' contains some Arabic influences and nice guitar-work. 'Hoodoo' is a bit 'wild-west-stuff' with typical bombastic Muse-noise. The closer 'Knights Of Cydonia' is the highlight. There's some Rush-stuff to be found here. The song is looking for a proper direction, but finally, singer Matt Bellamy starts to scream from various voices "No one's gonna take me alive, time has come to make things right. You and I must fight for our rights, you and I must fight to survive." With these words, the album closes. Muse's best work in 45 minutes. Get this album!!
