Muse won their second Grammy® Award today in the Best Rock Album Category for their heralded seventh album Drones. The album was released last summer by Warner Bros. Records and debuted at Number One in 21 countries around the world, marking the band’s first number one album in the United States.
Rave reviews for Drones include ROLLING STONE: “Muse get back to the fiery rock that they do best, laced with new passion and principle.” USA TODAY: “The trio stays on track, both thematically and musically.” KERRANG! 5* “A claustrophobic classic that sharpens the focus of what is possible in the name of high-minded rock.” NME: “A bombastic neo-classic prog record.” THE SUNDAY TIMES: “Staggeringly beautiful.” THE TELEGRAPH: “Thrilling Madness.”
The Grammy® Awards were handed out on Monday, February 15, 2016 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, CA.
