4 stars In my opinion, this is the most progressive album to date by this inglish power trio. 'Space Dementia' and 'Citizen Erased' combined space rock, smooth passages and a lot of distortion. These are the great epics of the album. There are heavy Mellotrons in the style of early KING CRIMSON and a thousand Hammonds in the closer track 'Megalomania' and spacey pianos in the intros of 'New Born' and the excellent 'Bliss'. Bellamy´s voice is almost operistic in 'Micro Cuts' and it´s a nice display of his talent as vocalist. So potent and versatile. Others tracks like 'Hyper Music' and 'Plug in Baby' have wonderful choruses and it won´t let you stop singing all day long. A highly reccomended album by a wonderful band. "Origin of Symmetry" is a gem and one of the best recordings of the decade. Very in the style of his predecessor "Showbiz" but more experimental. Excellent addition!!
