5 stars Wow.

I was not expecting much more than indie/pop- rock with slightly more keyboards (thereby making it "prog" in many peoples eyes). What I got was completely different.

I got an incredible album. Mattew Bellamy's voice, while similar to Thom Yorke's, is extremely powerful and definitely the driving force behind Muse's "sound".

While certainly not prog in the purest sense, Black Holes and Revelations does have a progressive edge to it. This Progressive edge is best shown in the songs Take A Bow and Knights Of Cydonia. I wont go into each song but I will say that the album is pretty solid all the way through. Even the weaker songs have their moments that make you listen to the song again. The use of almost Queen like vocal harmonies and effects helps these more (in my opinion) boring songs stay interesting. So there is no real weak point of this album.

I love this album A lot. I've listened to it about 7 times in the last 3 days and I'm listening to it as I type this.


You wont get an album that pushes the boundaries of music or opens your ears to new ideas, but you will get 45 mins of incredible music.
