I rly like Escape and Surnburn from that album. The more personal/angst based lyrics were kind of an interesting
contrast to the rest of their discog as well.

I can see some comparison to The Bends, but you could say that for a lot of late 90s alt rock albums, the comparison is overstated.

Were okay for a while but have gotten terrible recently, sample a few songs off Youtube and decide for yourself.

Update: I listened to their entire discography. I think Origin, Black holes, and Absolution are really solid albums. The others are taking a little longer for me to catch on.

Yeah a strong 3, some sweet tracks and riffs, but even this doesn't have a very strong flow or sense of coherency, trails off so bad

Origin and Absolution are excellent, Black holes is very good, Showbiz is a good LP but it gaves the feeling that you're listening an Ok computer carbon copy, resistance is not a bad album but it was a letdown compared to their previous efforts and the 2nd law is unsustianable.

i'm sorry but the muse to radiohead comparisons are hokum

and fair enough poly. i think the first half of this album is fucking amazing and then it falls for a few songs and gets it back together at the end. citizen erased is laskflkasd

I'm just comparing showbiz Chortles.

Besides the second half contains Dark Shines which is one of the most solid songs made by Bellamy and company.

Space dementia is intense and the instrumentation of new born is fantastic.
