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.
