Muse 

Blackholes and Revelations


Muse
Blackholes and Revelations
(Warner)
Overly bombastic? Check. Classical piano riffs? Check again. Emotive Thom Yorke singing? It’s there. That’s right, it’s another Muse record, complete with prog-rock flourishes that would make Yes proud and lyrics that recall doom, gloom and the apocalypse of a broken heart. That’s not saying this is a bad record. In fact, it’s so over-the-top that it’s hard not to smile at the major talent on showcase. It’s this UK-based trio’s dedication to melody that sells the package with several surefire singles (“Supermassive Blackhole,” “Starlight”) that only confirm why the group headlines major festivals in Europe and deserves a place on your iTunes.
