4 stars Though it is debatably much less progressive in nature than their latest album, Absolution, Origin of Symmetry is in my opinion Muse's strongest work yet. From the incredibly dynamic, agressive opener, New Born, to the incredibly contrasting hammer-horror finisher, Megolomania, the album is both ambitious in construction and varied in scope - showing the band's appreciation for a wide array of styles, from classical (or certainly neo- classical) to metal. Matt Bellamy asserts his ability to play guitar and piano proficiently, whilst also displaying what is a sometimes-bordering-on-ridiculous vocal range. Admittedly there are some weaker moments (I find the vocals on 'Micro Cuts' slightly annoying since the words are undecipherable) but each song has merit in it's own right and it is a very strong album in it's own right.
