2 stars Oh dear, boys. What have you done here? Every album had been a brilliant display of Post- Radiohead alternative rock mixed with slight electric vibes. On this album, Muse totally disregarded all that their fans wanted by making a pop album. Whilst usually, going for a different sound and progressing pays off, this album was simply for Muse to rake in some more cash from an evergrowing pop market.

It starts with the big single "Uprising". With a visible 80s vibe reminiscent of new-wave at times, this is one of the stronger songs on the album. The songs afterwards take a turn for the worse, apart from "Unnatural Selection" and "MK Ultra", the other two strongest songs. Most of them are pop-orientated fillers, for example take the sickening ballad "Guiding Light", the Marron 5-ish fodder "I Belong to You" and the absolutely awful "Undisclosed Desires". Whilst the Exogenesis symphony picks things up a tad, even that is slightly dissappointing and more boring than I had hoped from Muse. It had potential to be epic.

Muse are still a great band. I will still constantly listen to Origin of Symmetry, Black Holes & Revelations and Absolution, but this is one album I think I'm gonna leave to itself.
