5 stars Muse are not just a mere band, they are a phenomenon.A hard rocking trio lead by the lavishly talented Matthew Bellamy this is undoubtedly their greatest album to date.The first time I heard Absolution I literally lept around the room jumping on the settee and playing imaginary air guitar! They are as pompous and loud as anything around and inevitably have drawn comparison to that other famous trio Emerson,Lake And Palmer.Bellamy is every bit the showman like Emerson although he sticks mainly to lead guitar while Dominic Howard drives the music forward with all the ferocity of a young Carl Palmer.Simply breathatking at times this band are on the edge constantly but somehow always manage to hold it together.The songs are nicely varied with some quiet ones in amongst the carnage.The best songs though are the heavy ones.Just listen to Stockholm Syndrome as they crank it up a notch.The spirit of ELP in guitar form is well and truly alive!

5 stars and you better believe it!
