I wonder if Muse would be as big as they are if people understood their political perspectives a little better.

Doubtful. Muse is somewhat popular in pop culture now, and from my experience, many people will sing along with the lyrics without a clue as to what they mean.

I do like The Resistance even though its songs contain many a ripoff of other songs (Billy Idol should sue).
OoS is good as well.

Yes, definitely the best two tracks on the album.

Always found it a bit flat although Megalomaniac is possibly their 'proggiest'  track after Knights Of Cydonia

I only have the first Muse.....courtesy of a friend. Can't say I ever really liked their style or approach.
Another band that for me remains uninteresting.

Production is the biggest issue for me. Panic Station is actually an insult to the session musicians that played on it . Otherwise its a solid Muse album displaying a bit more adventure than on the ultra safe The Resistance. (imo)

Other than the 2 awful dubstep tracks, I really like 2nd law.  They try something new in every song.

Second Law is a return to form albeit with more plagarism than normal but I like it. The debut is overlooked but has some good raw rock tracks that should be turned up loud. Origin does nothing much for me but I expected it to get some votes as its quite popular.


Resistance a pop album? Aside from the first couple tracks, I'm having trouble seeing the pop on this album.

I should have put the words 'Excepting Exogenesis' after the Resistance but otherwise I stick to my comments. Its just too much like driving with the hand brake on. Perhaps 'Pop' is a bit too general a description and what I really mean is 'safe' but nevertheless its not doing it for me. 

BTW does anyone recognise my avatar?Wink

What, like recognising that it comes from the video for Sing for Absolution. No, not in the slightest!Tongue

Actually, I seem to remember commenting on it before when you first used it, which would be some years back now I think. And yes, safe is exactly how I'd describe Resistance.

Cool

Origin, with Absolution very close behind. Not a big fan of their other releases, but these two are pretty ace.

Don't even mention that ugly, disgusting pile of garbage of an album that is The 2nd Law...
