Best Muse Album
 
There were a number of comments which I was surprised at, namely how many people dislike Absolution. So I thought this would be a good, albeit obvious thread to do.

At this time what do people think is the best Muse album and why?

I would advise not answering the poll until the "honeymoon period" has ended. However if you're confident you won't change your mind, feel free.

Also what's everyone's least favourite record?

Favourite: Absolution; I like the greater emphasis on chillout songs.
Least Favourite: Black Holes and Revelations; I don't like the production.

I very much doubt they'll be able to top OoS, but that's not a bad thing, as that's one hell of an album.

Agreed, but The Resistance (for me anyway) REALLY comes close to equalling it :yesey:

Mozza 11-09-2009 02:57 PM

Even with the 'honeymoon' period, OoS is still my favourite. The battle for me is whether or not this album is better than Absolution

Worst album: Black Holes and Revelations.

Favourite: Origin

The Resistance and Absolution pretty much equal and not too far behind

Worst: a harder choice than most people find it for me but ill still have to say BHAR, though that isnt poor by any stretch of the imagination :)

For me, Showbiz has by far the best production of any of Muse's records. However I think that there's only 4 tracks which I could say are classics.

Paul 11-09-2009 03:01 PM

BHAR has some quality tracks on it, but there are probably more weak tracks on there than any other album.

They'll be able to make one hell of a greatest hits album when they want to cash in their pensions.

I'm still waiting to hear them play Fillip and Sober live :p

Probably BH&R. But OOS and Absolution are on the same level really.

Cant judge The Resistance yet.

1st: Origin of Symmetry. Riffs, riffs, BASS! PIANO! It has everything. I love it, my favourite album for personal reasons.
2nd: The Resistance: Like Origin, for me there isn't a song where I think "ewww". It has some of Muse's best material to date.
3rd: Absolution: Great album, feels too long sometimes though, and I don't like some songs (like Endlessly)
Tied 4th place: Showbiz and BH&R: Showbiz has Overdue on it, which is god-awful.
BH&R has SP on it, which is just as awful. Both have their strong and weak points. I like them both.

It's too early for this.

andrew_berge 11-09-2009 03:12 PM

I didn't vote as i'm not sure.
It's tight between OoS and BH&R
Then come Absolution, Showbiz and The Resistance.

No, i'm not a big fan of The Resistance, maybe it'll grow on me later, but as of now, i only really like five songs (Three of which are Exogenesis).

Anxyous 11-09-2009 03:46 PM

As of now The Resistance, but that might change, when I've gotten used to the songs and all...

StealingTheSun 11-09-2009 04:05 PM

Absolution is my fav... It was the first Muse album I truely got into :) OoS comes a close second [=

I don't really have a much hated/disliked Muse album... not even BH&R
:p

Totally agree, which is why I'm so chuffed the new album didn't go down the same road.
