Rolling Stone (10/14/99, pp.125-6) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...SHOWBIZ is no maverick masterstroke, but it is passionate and loud and also unexpectedly gentle - a great first shot from three guys barely old enough to drink on their U.S. tour."Entertainment Weekly (10/1/99, p.75) - "...the trio's dark, complex sound, kick-ass musicality...and hook-laden songs...combine to make SHOWBIZ one of the more compelling rock records of the year." - Rating: B+Q (1/01, p.92) - Included in Q's "50 Best Albums of 2000" - "...The best rock debut in years..."Mojo (Publisher) (11/99, p.100) - "There's no getting around it, Muse sound...a lot like Radiohead....In the end it comes down to songs, and there's a lot of strong ones here..."48.14639

Rolling Stone (2/23/95, pp.72-74) - 4 Stars - Excellent - "...the Muses have never sounded more focused, more driving....So much excitement courses through this album, it proves that [Kristen] Hersh is simply one of the most gifted artists around..."Spin (2/95, pp.74-75) - Highly Recommended - "...The familiar schizoid bop Hersh innovated...remains the defining musical trait, but Hersh's line of sight has shifted. She now approaches insanity with a critical distance....The transformation plays out as a calming influence on the music. UNIVERSITY is Muses' most clearly pop record..."Entertainment Weekly (1/20/95, p.52) - "...A propulsive brand of edgy guitar-rock that's ultimately more haunting than any confession Hersh utters..." - Rating: B+Option (5-6/95, p.139) - "...unplugged or plugged, the intensity and honesty of Hirsch's songs is the same. Hirsch grabs onto things that most push out of their minds...For the insomniac, UNIVERSITY is best in the broad daylight..."Musician (3/95, pp.82-83) - "...This alluring, elusive opus resists reduction to easy formulas....[Hersh] avoids cliches...crafting appealing hooks that melt away upon close inspection, while obliquely outlining common phenomena like desire, anger, and, especially, uncertainty..."NME (Magazine) (1/14/95, p.39) - 8 - Excellent - "...overpowering, not in a metallic way, but in a much more insidious manner, with light and shade provided by double-tracked vocals, liberal splashes of cello doom, generous guitar riffage and a boss rhythm section...essential..."34.39028

Rolling Stone (p.96) - 3.5 stars out of 5 -- "[M]ixing together huge, doomy soundscapes, snarling guitars and space-age sound effects with Matthew Bellamy's operatic wail....[The album] will push your pleasure buttons."Entertainment Weekly (p.81) - "[T]heir latest is also ambitious, impeccably built, and apt to induce fits of uncontrolled fist pumping."Q (p.106) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[Their] dynamic versatility means Muse's songs have a habit of changing gear three minutes in, suddenly opening out and becoming more anthemic. It's a neat trick."Q (p.126) - Ranked #2 in Q Magazine's "100 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "[The songs] consolidated their creators' position as rock's mad scientists."Alternative Press (p.220) - 5 out of 5 -- "REVELATIONS is Muse's best work yet primarily because of the fluid balance it keeps between excess and restraint. For every dizzying crescendo, there's a delicate, serene come-down."Kerrang (Magazine) (pp.46-47) - "It's massive, a rich, textured orgy of music, stuffed to the gills with myriad different sounds that spill out of your speakers in truly exhilarating fashion."Kerrang (Magazine) (p.69) - Ranked #2 in Kerrang's "20 Greatest Albums of 2006" -- "[A] brave and willfully eccentric collection of songs."Mojo (Publisher) (p.88) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[They] make a powerful gut-bustingly powerful noise -- the closing epic 'Knights of Cydonia' sounds like Deep Purple playing the hits of Nine Inch Nails."24.15334
