Muse are number 21 with Absolution in this weeks issue of NME on the 100 best british albums ever. They wrote a little paragraph about it saying something like "love songs about the end of the world"
Love songs about the end of the world; space riffs built on classical structures; operatic vocals and demented techno played entirely with guitars... everything about Muse's ambitious third collection was overblown and grandiose. And everything about it was just right. 'Absolution' saw the devon boys break out from their cultish shackles and stake their claim as sublime outsiders
THanks to Apocalypse_Please for this :wink
