1st. Take a Bow
Corrupt, you corrupt, bring corruption to all that you touch
Hold, you'll behold, and beholden for all that you've done
And spell, cast a spell, cast a spell on the country you run
And risk, you will risk, you will risk all their lives and their souls
And burn, you will burn, you will burn in hell yeah you'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell, yeah you'll burn in hell for your sins

And our freedom's consuming itself
What we've become is contrary to what we want
Take a bow

Death, you bring death and destruction to all that you touch
Pay, you must pay, you must pay for your crimes against the earth
And hex, feed the hex, feed the hex on the country you love

You'll burn in hell, you'll burn in hell for your sins

Awesome that you counted them up, its interesting!

Hoodoo should be higher in most of them, so should Assassin. And Take A Bow.

nah don't like Take a Bow much. WAAY too techno for my taste. But soldier's poem the worst..? i can see why. It's a bit like a poor unintended of the album. It's slow and reflective but dies after listening to it more than 5 times. In my own experience that is and so not so legendary as unintended.

I like them both, it's just hard to decide on the best songs from the album as they all seem to have a large proportion of people here that bum them. I personally can't understand the appeal of Map at all, is anyone willing to enlighten me?

Very interesting that Assassin came last in the vocal category. Matt's vocals aren't as stonkingly brilliant as they usually are, but the backing vocals used in the chorus are amazingly clever.

I blame Dom's awesome drumming :p

I think the appeal of 'Map...' is the arrangement of it. It's quite a simple song when broken down, but the layers put together make it work. I'd be interested to hear what the acoustic version sounds like (a Starlight B-side if my info is correct).

City of Delusion ahead of Knights... AND Map... in Best Song? :eek: :eek: :eek:
However, its not exactly criminal, more of a misdemeanor

Because they results were amassed from public polls on this very forum, so it's a public vote of Muse fans.

Besides, this thread is ye olde and should have not been brought back.

1st. Take a Bow
Corrupt, you corrupt, bring corruption to all that you touch
Hold, you'll behold, and beholden for all that you've done
And spell, cast a spell, cast a spell on the country you run
And risk, you will risk, you will risk all their lives and their souls
And burn, you will burn, you will burn in hell yeah you'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell, yeah you'll burn in hell for your sins

And our freedom's consuming itself
What we've become is contrary to what we want
Take a bow

Death, you bring death and destruction to all that you touch
Pay, you must pay, you must pay for your crimes against the earth
And hex, feed the hex, feed the hex on the country you love
And beg, you will beg, you will beg for their lives and their souls
And burn, you will burn, you will burn in hell, yeah you'll burn in hell
You'll burn in hell, you'll burn in hell for your sins

Indeed. The album version of Assassin is rather bland, whereas Invincible is actually a genuinely moving ballad with an amazing buildup and a kick-ass guitar solo. It's possibly my favourite song on BH&R.

An old bump, but definately Muse's most consistent album since Origin. I don't think there are any naff tracks on it, and most of them are pretty exciting. A refreshing change from the doom and gloom of previous albums.
