Sing for Absolution

By Muse

The UK's premier futuristic, space aged, intergalactic rockers provide us with another taster from their acclaimed number one album "Absolution".

Slower then previous offerings such as "Time Is Running Out" this takes time to get going but once the guitars kick in it's like a jet engine blowing in your face minus the horrific burning and scarring of course.

It has the usual tinkling of the ivories in the background and would easily have nestled in comfortably somewhere in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: Space Odyssey. I'm sure it'll make it on to the sound track when Hollywood decide to do a remake.

Does everyone love Muse on this site? All I read are reviews with "Matt Bellamy style vocals..." and "Muse style guitars..." surely there are not that many emulating them? Personally I think they've had a few interesting singles but there's been nothing that has forced my hand in to my wallet to actually purchase! - Discuss

Yeah I saw em at The Duchess years ago and they were good but Soulwax kicked their arse. Matt Bellamy seemed to go into arsehole mode for a bit but they have churned out a few decent songs of late. Good but not great. Another Radiohead comparison then.

there's a lot of demos coming in from local bands with frontmen trying to wail like mr bellamy. Sadly very few have the girl like vocal chords to pull it off.

Yes, ace news on the Wax front. Can't wait to see those flashing mic stands again! Whats happened to Brassy too with their record scratching drummer?

My mate built there website and another friend produced some tracks for them....trust me they were never "cool", they may have sounded ok but as people they were particularly un-cool
