5 stars It´s weird for me to put 5 stars to an album that lacks the complexety that I find so amusing in prog...but whats right is right! This album deserves the whole 5 stars. Every song is excellent and what is even more important (what really makes a 5 album) is that they all work so good with each other.

What I find so great about this band is, first of all their Radiohead infuence ( another of my favorite bands), second how much emotion all the songs have and I dont mean that they are a matter of fact there are no ballads in this record, but how Mathew Bellamy´s voice and music sound so perfectly raw that its honest...thats the word, honest...from the first time I heard Muse I noticed that the words and music of this band are honest...and thats something i really apreatiate in music!!!

My favorite songs must be "Apocalypse please", "Time is running out", "Stockholm syndrome", "Hysteria" and "Butterflys and hurricanes", but the rest of the songs are also great!

...Mike Portnoy was right...the best album form 2003!!!
