Black Holes And Revelations is the fourth studio album by English progressive rock band Muse, released in July 2006 by Helium-3 Records.

Muse is a solid, unique band and Black Holes And Revelations defines those strengths with a passion. Rich Costey joins Muse in the co-production of this set, and together, they created the band's most realised and meticulous album to date.

"Take A Bow" sets the scene by layering full rock orchestration with waves of synthesizers and percussion, all of it building up to vocalist/guitarist Matthew Bellamy's aching performance of a world torn apart by its own instability. Though frequently compared to Queen's Freddie Mercury and Thom Yorke, Bellamy comes into his own as a vocalist here.

Bellamy, drummer Dominic Howard, and bassist Chris Wolstenholme pull equal weight throughout, and Muse sounds like a complete band on Black Holes And Revelations.

The sultry, swaggering "Supermassive Black Hole" and the razor-edged paranoiac "Assassin" are prime examples of how adamant Muse were about delivering the biggest rock & roll package possible, while "Starlight" proves they write a radio-worthy anthem without jeopardising their own ethics.

Bellamy howls "You and I must fight for our rights/You and I must fight to survive" during the riotous, Rush-like megalomania of "Knights Of Cydonia", and it's true, they've totally fought for their craft on this one.

It may have taken four albums for Americans to get with the program, but with Black Holes And Revelations, the whole world was now well and truly watching.

Check out the tracks: “Supermassive Black Hole”; “Starlight”; “Knights Of Cydonia”; “Invincible” and “Map Of The Problematique”. 

This LP record is a reissue (July 2015) on 180 gram vinyl with a printed inner sleeve, pressed in Europe.
