Black Holes and Revelations is the fourth studio album by English rock band Muse, released on 3 July 2006 in the United Kingdom. It gets its title from a line in the song “Starlight”, which is the second track on the album. Recording was split between New York and France, and it was the first time Muse had taken a more active role in the album’s production. The album was a change in style from Muse’s previous albums, and the band cited influences that included Depeche Mode, Millionaire, Lightning Bolt, Sly and the Family Stone, and music from southern Italy.
Black Holes and Revelations was placed at number 34 in a public vote conducted by Q for “The Best British Albums of all time”in February 2008. The album also spawned “Supermassive Black Hole”, Muse’s most successful single in the UK to date, hitting number 4 on the charts.
Like their two previous albums, Black Holes and Revelations has political and dystopian undertones, with the lyrics covering topics as varied as political corruption, alien invasion, revolution and New World Order conspiracies as well as more conventional love songs.
