consistently stunning | Reviewer: Jamie | 11/6/11
an excellent third album from the Teignmouth trio. Sing for Absolution is such a cool song, and couldn't be more stylistically different to the sonic fury that is Stockholm Syndrome. Elsewhere you have the lush strings of Blackout, electric disco piano of Endlessly, and a beautiful, carefully controlled exit in Ruled by Secrecy. This album hasn't left my CD player in the years since it was first released. Even the amazon.com review says that "Coldplay should languish in Muse's dust." The fact Muse aren't as big as Coldplay is the final nail in the coffin of music fans' fickleness.
Surprisingly amazing | Reviewer: Erica | 12/10/07
The first time I heard about this band I didn't even imagine it would be that great. But it was, and I've become a huge fan ever since.
This cd, particularly, is something I simply cannot stop listening to and finding it amazing.
Apocalypse please, Sing for absolution and Stockholm Syndrome are the best, even though I love the whole production!
Hope they come to South America soon...
Best Muse Album | Reviewer: MinchE | 10/10/07
Greatest album I`ve heard in a while... I just l0vE it! Every song is good. In my opinion the best ones are "Time Is Running Out" & "Hysteria". These guys really have unique sound. I went to see them in Belgrade Arena on Sunday, and they were mindblowing!!! I wanted to hear more of them, even though my ears hurt as hell. I mean, Matt`s amazing voice, fast guitar riffs, fantastic piano playing,then great basslines & drums by Chris and Dom , I loved every bit of it! Now, to get back to the album... My final comment - ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! Muse, I give you 12/10! You really got it with this one ;)
Absolutely brilliant | Reviewer: Linsey | 12/23/06
These guys are awesome.
The vocalist has an incredible voice and my opinion is that live they're even better than on cd.
muse album absolution | Reviewer: bridget | 1/4/05
man oh man i love this album. it's dramatic rock really involves you in the music, and along with an excellent vocalist, muse is one of the best bands we'll see for sometime. my opinion anyway! i love it and i suggest anyone who loves a good bit of head banging/rocking away to some loud music will love this album five stars.
Astonoshing and unnerving | Reviewer: Mikey | 7/27/04
This is the best British album of the year, an incredible feat of musical tallent expressed by the trio who began with showbiz in 1999. Absolution combines bombastic, over the top elements, with a new style of rock that seems so ahead of its time, its like peering into the future.
Apocalypse Please, Hysteria, Butterflies and Hurricanes are the stand out tracks on this album, all of them with mind blowing melodies and warnings hidden in the lyrics, well, not really hidden, i mean 'and this is the end, of the world' isnt that subtle, but still, over the top. The rocking elements and almost 'ballad but not quite' songs can be found throughout the album, beuatifully intermingled to make an amazingly consistent album. Ruled by Secrecy, a gentle, soothing passage with sinister lyrics makeS the perfect close to this astonoshing album, which deserves the heaps of praise it has already obtained. 9/10
