Muse - Black Holes and Revelations (2006)

Reason for Listening:
A song was playing on KROQ, a rock radio station, and I used Shazam to identify it. It turned out it was a song by Muse and I decided to listen to their album.
I have 19 scrobbles for this album in 2009, and 11 scrobbles for this album in 2011; the latter appears to be a full album listen of the standard release which occurred 20110219.

Released 20060703.
11 songs. 45:28. Black Holes and Revelations (2006)
11+1 songs. 45:20+04:40. Black Holes and Revelations (Digital/Japan)(2006)

First listen.
I listened to this album on the way to (six tracks) and from work (six tracks).
Second listen. Digital Edition.
"Glaciers melting in the dead of night | And the superstar's sucked into the supermassive | (Oooooh, you set my soul alight)"
I highly associate this track with Guitar Hero III: LEgends of Rock ("Knights of Cydonia")

3: "Starlight"; "Knights of Cydonia";
2: "Take a Bow"; "Supermassive Black Hole";
1: "Assassin";
0: "Map of the Problematique"; "Soldier's Poem"; "Invicible"; "Exo-Politics"; "City of Delusion"; "Hoodoo"; "Glorious";

The music is appealing, but sometimes I want to understand the lyrics and don't. Technically I can look them up, but I wasn't in the mood to do so.

Overall Rating: 3.6/5
Favorite Song: "Starlight"
