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.

Yeah first half is pretty good as far as trashy alternative rock/metal goes, but god damn it trails off with Micro Cuts (painful) and two flamenco-flavoured tracks in a row and then a cover song and then that breathless, overblown closer Megalomania... and I was led to believe this album was "flawless."

It's Muse; of course it's not flawless

Citizen Erased is still the best song ever though

I'm pretty sure that that's because it's a Muse song, but because there's nothing to like

I just think (back in the day at least) Muse had some great damn ideas but never really knew how to utilise them, makes you wish these songs were written and performed by a different band
