Muse - Absolution [2LP] (2003 reissue)

With Absolution, Muse continues to expand on their unique rock sound with complex guitars, transition-laden rock anthems with melodic harmonics Described in All Music Guide as '.. the emotional intensity and style of Radiohead, a rock thunder descended from Black Sabbath, and the baroque drama of Queen...' Muse switched gears with new producer Rich Costey, creating a smoother more polished sound.
The album had plenty of punch to satisy their hard core fans, while the musicianship of Absolution garnered critical praise and a new legion of fans who couldn't get enough of the powerful anthemic rock and the mind-blowing live shows that set Muse apart from the pack.
Following seven years of near solid touring, Muse escalated from being the biggest band in Teignmouth in 1997 to one of the biggest bands in Europe by 2004. With each successive album, they pushed the musical envelope with a fusion of progressive rock, electronica, and Radiohead-influenced experimentation, creating an emotive, passionate sound. Muse's reputation as one of the best live rock bands in the world is well deserved with their exhilirating live performances drewing critical acclaim, industry buzz, and a loyal and rabid fan base.
