Black Holes and Revelations
Muse was already a sensation in their native England when BLACK HOLES AND REVELATIONS brought the trio a global audience. Recording of the 2006 collection began in the same French studio where Pink Floyd cut THE WALL, and that seminal band's favorite designer, Storm Thorgerson, also provided the cover art here. Like Pink Floyd, Muse specializes in progressive rock on an epic scale, with an occasionally pessimistic world view illuminated by ambitious arrangements as on “Supermassive Black Hole,” “Starlight” and “Knights Of Cydonia” (all Billboard Modern Rock hits). A Mercury Prize nominee in the U.K. and a Top 10 album in the U.S., BLACK HOLES AND REVELATIONS put Muse in the big leagues and is an ideal way to celebrate lead vocalist/songwriter Matthew Bellamy's birthday.
