Muse – Sing For Absolution

Single Review by Mark Bayross

As Muse continue to grow into all-conquering stadium-levelling giants across the world – platinum-selling chart-topping albums here, festival headlining shows there – it seems only fitting that they should mark the release of their Mercury Music Prize-nominated third album in the US with its (almost) title track.

That this song should stand out from an already epic album is testament to the sheer enormity of the musical canvas with which the trio are now painting – this is one of those songs that runs the gamut from haunting piano balladry to full-on soaring crescendo and will leave you breathless and wanting to hear it again and again, much like the album.

The single is backed by new song FURY, but it’s also worth checking out the DVD as the video is also fittingly huge.
