”You’ll burn in hell for your sins,” sings Muse’s Matthew Bellamy, with a wayward-choirboy voice that can alternately conjure Radiohead’s Thom Yorke, Queen’s Freddie Mercury, and Rush’s Geddy Lee. This young British trio has clearly studied all three bands — and for modern, arena-scale art rock, that’s a perfect core curriculum. Corny and bombastic, their latest, Black Holes and Revelations, is also ambitious, impeccably built, and apt to induce fits of uncontrolled fist pumping. If prog is indeed the new punk, these guys are its Green Day.
