Muse / Warner

For those of you who are not familiar with European rock band Muse, the group is comprised of Matthew Bellamy (lead vocals, guitars), Chris Wolstenholme (bass guitar & backup vocals), and Dominic Howard (drums and percussion). Their influences include
Nirvana and Radiohead. Judging by the title of the tracks, it is easy to assume that their album is going to be dark lyrically and musically. The assumption is correct indeed. With songs like "Apocalypse Please," "Time Is Running Out," and "Butterflies & Hurricanes"
the songs are heavy on the guitar riffs and also lyrically bring about a dark cloud. The trend continues with songs like "Thoughts Of An Atheist" and "Ruled By Secrecy." This album has a few decent moments and some beats are catchy but it is not enough. It's lack a certain "je ne sais quoi."
