Muse on 'Absolution': 'It was the first proper record we made'
Brit rockers Muse have confessed that their 2003 album, entitled 'Absolution', was when they really felt as though they had made something spectacular despite it being their third full-length offering.
Speaking to Gigwise about their career and the music they've made to date, the 'Plug In Baby' hitmakers explained that they recognised that particular album as the "first proper" one they released because of how it was made:
"I think 'Absolution' was the first proper record we made. 'Showbiz' was a collection of the best songs we had written in the first five years of the band and was recorded at quite a few different studios with two different producers. Origin was pretty much put together in short breaks between touring and again was done in different studios with different producers."
"Making 'Absolution' was the first time that we took some time away from touring and actually spent a ton of time in the rehearsal room and put all of the songs together at the same time. We also recorded with Rich Costey for the first time. We did the whole album with him which helped it to be more cohesive than the previous two."
