One of my coworkers just came into my office and asked me to ask you guys a Muse question. She just bought Absolution, and she has apparently fallen in love with the way they use piano in their songs. So what she wants to know is this: Is piano featured prominently on their other albums? If so, which other album(s) would you recommend she buy?

Thanks, y'all.

They are fantastic live.

I had the pleasure of seeing them in a really small venue at their one Toronto show...so much energy. Matt's piano playing alone was enough to lull me into a state of semi-hypnotic fascination. It was ASTOUNDING...he's a virtuoso.

Out of the remaining albums I would say their second album Origin of Symmetry is the most piano driven album and arguably their best album. Many of the songs including New Born, Bliss, Space Dementia (the most piano led song on the album), Feeling Good incorporate the piano to good effect..and a church organ is used during Meglomania.

Their first studio album Showbiz also contains a few great piano aided songs including Sunburn, Fillip, Falling Down, and Cave. Showbiz is worth hearing but I'd always recommend Origin of Symmetry and maybe even Hullabaloo - B-Side + Live (they are fantastic live as sweetest_thing mentioned) ahead of Showbiz first to anyone interested in Muse.
