Rating Review
Customer Rating Very good, it’s worth buying, especially for the ‘Plug in Baby’ rift alone. It does carry the odd mistake (like the chord sequence in ‘Plug In Baby’), and they could of made an effort to put chord symbols or bass tabs into ‘Feeling Good’, but then it does have bass in treble clef. Other than that, BUY BUY BUY. This is a classic album and I can finally play ‘Dark Shines’ and ‘Screenager’ because of it. A must have for Muse fans or not.

Customer Rating This is definitely one of the coolest guitar albums of the year with lotsa tunes to freak out to. Good transcriptions of 'Bliss', 'Microcuts', 'Space Dementia', all the other song had tiny mistakes, and the authors were kinda lazy: If there's no guitar, well they don't give a transcription arranged for guitar. They just let it slip there a bit... also not all the guitars have been transcribed: for ex. the chorus on 'Plug-in' is definitely not the only thing Matt plays; there's 2 more overdubs that they didn't bother to transcribe... but hey: if you want it simple: you got it!

Customer Rating well..... wot du I have to say..... this is a fantastic album book - it beats all others. Muse rule the world of music therefore buy it like u've never bought before. Arranged with fantasic songs oh which some include: plug in baby, and not forget the one and only 'new born' AKA the best song in living history.
When u buy it u'll never put it down i can assure u!!

Customer Rating This is not as good as their last album showbiz but it is ok.The best parts of the album would probablies have to be new born,hyper music,plug in baby ,feeling good and micro cuts.If you like pianos and loud guitars you'll love this
Gary Beal

Customer Rating Matt has a solid classical education in piano music. Seen him in Paris playing Space Dementia with Rachmaninoff's Prelude in C# Minor as an intro. If you want to play it as he does, just buy this songbook, and the music will naturally flow from your hands!

Customer Rating Wow! This album is way better than 'showbiz'. The book sticks pretty close to the album and confirms my belief that it is almost impossible to play muse songs correctly!!

Customer Rating As a radiohead and nirvana fan, I have often found it hard to make a compromise between the two. Very much like early (live) radiohead, this is one of the best albums in history. The riff at the beginning of "plug in baby" i'm sure I recognize, but is brilliant all same. Feeling good, is a track that you could completely lose yourself in. I had that on repeat 16 times round and did not get tired of it once. Brilliant album and all songs good in their own right. buy, buy, buy, buy!!!!

Customer Rating Quality book for a quality album


Customer Rating if u love Muse then u'll lurv this book! Its the best! The 2 albums rock and so do the books.
a muse-ic lover

Customer Rating This album ranges from many different styles. From Rock Shock - to Indie Rock it still remains as one of England’s bet selling British Rock bands albums. As well as Muse being Britains best band at the Kerrang awards you will see the quality of music spilling out from this album.

Customer Rating Great Album. Great Book. If you’re interested in Muse and 'Muse type' music you'll love. With great transcribed music you can play all of the muse songs on this album.

Customer Rating Oh my God! This book rocks and so do muse. You should really get this, dudes!

Customer Rating MUSE rule! This album shows their class! the book helps you so much because it is nearly impossible to work out how to play some of the music, so buy it and try and play it! It's just so difficult to play it like Matthew Bellamy does though!

Customer Rating Great, much better than Showbizz!!!!!

Customer Rating I have only just discovered MUSE and let me just say i will be a fan forever if they keep producing albums of this quality. There are some very strong songs on this album but i have to say that i will be suprised if they ever out do Plug in baby- It's a work of art. PURE GENIUS!!!!!


Customer Rating Being a big Muse fan I just had to buy this book. This book is better than most because it transcribes piano guitar and bass when it is used, which comes in handy as I play the piano, bass and a bit of guitar. The range of difficulty levels is wide, I can play alot of the guitar parts even though I am self taught and I've only been playing for a year, some of it's challenging but not impossible. Being able to play the plug in baby riff and space dementia is great, highly recommended!
Josh Trotter

Customer Rating Its a great book for a great album. If you own the album and play the piano or guitar, then you must get this book as it is a highly accurate transcription of the album. Some may moan about the piano pieces not being arranged for guitar, but at the end of the day you have to play each bit on the appropriate instrument for it to sound right, also its not hard to work it out anyway and a song like 'Space Dementia' can not be performed on a guitar. Also in places the book gives you the bass tablature as well as the piano and guitar parts, so if you are in a band this is excellent because everyone can play it accurately.
Muse are one of the best bands recently and I wish all the luck to them because if it wasn't for them I would not play the guitar and be able to play accurately 'Plug In Baby', which is the greatest guitar riff ever recorded. I strongly recommend this if you have the album.

Customer Rating Firstly I have to say that Muse have to be the best band in the world. Their whole style of music is amazing, and if you like this style, you will love this. The songs are set out very well allowing them to be picked up quickly and then worked on. A must buy book!
Alex Yardy

Customer Rating Listen through the album again for guitar parts. If you don't play the piano there are many song you are missing out on. However the guitar parts are excellent and easy to follow!

Customer Rating A great book!! Worth the money alone just to be able to play the riffs from New Born, Plug In Baby and Citizen Erased. Buy this and crank your amp up to 11 and enjoy!

Customer Rating An excellent set of sheet music, there are chords for the less advanced of us, and tabs and notes for the more competent guitar and piano players. There are also diagrams and tab explainations. And 'Origin of symmetry' is an excellent bunch of songs. Remember, Matt Bellamy never had a music lesson in his life, that's inspiration for us all

Customer Rating I think that this album has some of the best and coolest guitar techniques used in one album, yet is quite simple for most songs. The best transcription in the whole book has to be 'Hyper music' as there are minimal mistakes and this is by far the most superior song on the bands phenomenal second album.This is a must buy for all Muse fans, whatever level of ability you are at.

Customer Rating Really good, the tabs are all spot on. I definitely recommend this to everyone as this album has some really great riffs and this book makes them easy to learn.

Customer Rating This book like the album, rules. Credit must be paid to the transcribers for keeping up with Mr Bellamy. After a few weeks i was able to play most songs from the album (Even Megalomania which is an organ based song).

Customer Rating It's pretty damn good. although there are a few blatant mistakes. I have only been playing for half a year and can tackle most of it. 'Plug In Baby' is great for getting your fingers warmed up. Muse rock-so buy it now.

Customer Rating One of the Best albums ever! Arrangement, Chordal movement, perfect falsetto, experimentation it has it all!

The guitars are very very precisely tabbed (less mistakes then I am used to in rock books) and the piano is great fun to play. And it's more difficult then 90% of bands out there, a rare challenge in rock music. Thanks guys!

Customer Rating I have already bought the "absolution" book from this website and this is the second book and counting! I bought the album and loved it so i just had to buy the sheet music for it. I would recommend this book to everyone!
