Prog Reviewer
4 stars this is a great album. the best muse album in fact, but yet they still fail to touch the definition of "masterpiece". every song on this album is good, monotonous but beautiful still, soaring vocals, Radiohead influenced moments, great guitar work, great drumming, filling basslines, but lets face it, hasn't all this been done before?

the highlights of the album for me are 'hyper music', 'plug in baby', 'new born', 'feeling good' and 'bliss'. the others don't stand out as much as they lack the catchy parts of the above, but there is still nothing nothing wrong with each song.

i'm giving this album a noble 4/5, as it has good musicianship, a good constant quality and some brilliant prog rock moments, however it lacks the variety for me to call it a masterpiece. Very listenable on the other hand and worth the buy.

The Pessimist | 4/5 |
