Absolution is the third studio album by English alternative rock band Muse. It was released on 21 September 2003 in the UK and on March 23, 2004 in the U.S. by Taste Music Limited. The album yielded the band's first American hits – "Time Is Running Out" and "Hysteria", the former becoming their first UK Top 10 single. In 2006 it was voted the 21st best British album ever. The album was placed in at #23 after a public vote for Q magazine in February 2008 for the Best British Albums of All Time.[2] In 2009 it was voted by Kerrang! as the second-best album of the 21st century (thus far), coming just behind Green Day's American Idiot and beating albums such as Hybrid Theory by Linkin Park and Songs for the Deaf by Queens of the Stone Age (Muse's previous album, Origin of Symmetry, and their subsequent release, Black Holes and Revelations, also appeared in the top fifty).[3]

Writing and composition

The band spent much of 2002 recording Absolution with producer Rich Costey.[4] The album was recorded in studios in both Los Angeles and London.[4] Bellamy said that the band made a "conscious decision" to "get together in a room and make music", setting aside time to record the album, as previous albums' recording sessions were 'hastily arranged' and rushed.[4]
The album incorporates themes of fear, mistrust, personal achievement and joy.[4] Bellamy said that the beginning of the Iraq War had an effect on their songwriting.[4]
The track "Blackout" featured an 18-piece orchestra.[5]

Release

Absolution was released on 23 September 2003 on CD and double vinyl.[6] It was their first album released on the A&E Records label.[6] There were six singles, of which the first, "Stockholm Syndrome", was download only.[6] Because of contractual obligations, the band couldn't allow the song to be downloaded for free, so the fee was set at $0.99 and it was downloaded more than 20,000 times.[4]
The album and each of the singles except "Stockholm Syndrome" were distributed as promotional CDs housed in Anti-Static Bags.

Commercial
Absolution was Muse's first album to chart in the US, and is credited with establishing the band a fan base there.[4] The album reached #1 on the Billboard Top Heatseekers chart and #107 on the Billboard 200.[7] Absolution was certified gold by the RIAA in March 2007, becoming the group's first album to be certified in the United States.[8]

Critical
The album was largely well received by critics. Both Q and The Guardian gave it four out of five stars, with three out of five stars being awarded by Allmusic and Rolling Stone. As with previous albums they were compared to Radiohead, with Tim DiGravina of Allmusic calling Bellamy's vocals a "Thom Yorke vocal impersonation".[1] However, DiGravina also said that the album still "struck a nerve" with the band's more alternative hard rock fans,[1] a view that was agreed with by The Guardian's Alexis Petridis.[9]
