4 stars Black Holes And Revelations is an excellent Muse album. The melodies and hooks are devestatingly catchy and have stayed with me ever since I first heard this great album. The vocals are absolutely brilliant throughout and Muse implement an intricate blend of guitars and keyboards to masterfully produce radio friendly songs that still maintain that prog edge. Highlights include Starlight, Supermassive Black Hole, Invincible, Assassin, and the wonderful mini epic Knights Of Cydonia. Knights starts off with a strange horse whinny effect and then Tarantino style Pulp Fictionesque guitars begin to chugg. Like a Western from another planet, its an absolute Muse classic.

Someone hooked me onto this band and I have adored their music on all of their albums. This is one of their best albums and one with tracks that will remain fan favourites for years to come. The songs have a tendency to hook into you and they are so well crafted that they never bore the listener, some are absolutely amazing technical masterpieces.

Well worth getting this album from one of the most ferociously original band in years.
