4 stars Wonderful...Wonderful....

''Origin of Symmetry'' is the 2nd release of the band. After a promising debut, Muse come back with a wonderful album.

Matt's Bellamy voice is incredible, out-spaced to be true. This guy manages to connect Thom's Yorke (Radiohead) voice and develop it with his own character. The only singer, in my opinion, that is so close to him. His guitar playing and ideas are marvelous, too. They consist in psychedelic sounds and parts that, pratically, give this band its unique character. You can notice immediately all these strange and psychedelic effects that are wisely put together. Matt's keys are in the same planet as his guitar. Extremely well arranged and atmosheric. So good work here. Chris' bass performing and Dominic's drum playing are also the essential elements to this beautiful creature. They are such a great rhythm duo, but they also have clever and sophisticated ideas to present. Everything is perfect here.

The album's production is so perfect and clear, something that, in my opinion, is very difficult, when you have to arrange so many instruments' parts, effects and vocals. Perfect work here. ''Origin of Symmetry'' shows that the band is now mature and well proficient. Muse are about to become the connection of the Psychedelic Rock sound of the 00's, the Atmosphere, the Melody and the Progressive paths, something that render them music masters.

Highly reccomended band and extremely highly reccomended album! 4 stars really...
