Why the uppercase D in Hoodoo?

I'd give it a 4.5, rounding up to 5.

Good things: Every song is completely different and is great in its own way. True, this album is a bit more mainstream than Origin of Symmetry, but it all comes together in a great way.

Bad things: The shortage of awesome riffs.

Best songs: Knights of Cydonia, City of Delusion, Starlight (yes, I said it.)

Worst songs: Assassin

Best moment: The buildup in Take A Bow, pretty much all of Knights of Cydonia. I love that song so much.

5 stars. I love BHAR sooooo much. <3

Good things: each song has its own uniqueness in music, a lot of lyrics in the album talk about conspiracy or politic.

Best songs: Take a Bow, Hoodoo, Map of the Problematique, Knight of Cydonia, Assassin, City of Delusion, Soldier's Poem,

Best moment: Take a Bow lyric, Starlight's piano, Knight of Cydonia's riff, yeah " I will avenge" in City of Delusion

I really don't see how anyone could dislike it. There is only 2 poor songs (Soldier's Poem and Invincible), and one okay one (SMBH). Everything else is excellent IMO.

1. Map of the Problematique
2. City of Delusion
3. Exo-Politics
4. Take A Bow
5. Knights of Cydonia
6. Assassin
7. Starlight
8. Hoodoo
9. Supermassive Black Hole
10. Soldier's Poem
11. Invincible

3 stars

good thing : for the first time, they change a little their kind of music, new sounds. And the use of the trumpets

bad things : popy songs like starlight and his voice... his awful voice and weak verses and chorus like assassin. And why the Grand Omega Bosses Edit version isn't on the album??? a shame !

best songs : Supermassive Black Hole ; Hoodoo ; Exo-Politics ; City of Delusion

worst songs : Invincible, Starlight ; Map of the problematique

favorite moments : piano part in Hoodoo and chris solo in City of Delusion

wondering : one day at the radio, i heard an Elvis Presley's song and i was wondering, it makes me think of a song that i know and it was Soldiers Poem. I don't remeber what was the song... but i really think Soldiers Poem is very close to that Elvis song. Am I the only one who knows this similarity?

I don't understand the hate for Starlight...It's just as poppy as Resistance or UD. And a lot better.

If it wasn't for Starlight, I actually wouldn't be the Muse fan I am today. It didn't really get me into Muse as such(That was TiRO), but I loved this song when I was younger and it brings back memories of long road trips, singing along to it in the car

4.5 stars

as i already said 4.5 stars... although I'd rate Absolution 5, BH&R is my favorite muse album...

Good Things: The band explored a lot of new sounds, for the first time muse succesfully treated electric elements into concrete sounding songs, Dominic got to show he is a hell of a good drummer in songs like Assassin, KoC and TaB (you read well TaB) and IMO it has a lot more cohesion than The Resistance because of the majority of the songs' momentum and lyrical content... the only songs i find not fitting in BH&R are Starlight which is now a stadium hymn and maybe Soldiers Poem which I do like because of Chris's backing vocals and lyrics... whilst on TR as much as i love these songs individually... Exo-genesis, Undisclosed Desires, IBTY, Guiding Light and USoE have no actual lyrical resemblance (at least its not evident even when i know its all about 1984) I DONT KNOW WHY PEOPLE CLAIM TR IS MUCH MORE COHESIVE WHEN THERES A ROCK RIFF, A CLARINET SOLO AND STRING ARRANGEMENTS WITH FALSETTO ONE AFTER THE OTHER...

Bad Things: Production and the fact that they left out the best version of Assassin (Grand Omega Bosses) and Glorious which IMO would have fitted better than Starlight or SP.. Also that they had other 7 songs written for the album but they ignored them totally and threw them to the garbage (except for soaked)

__________________________________________________ ________________________

Best Songs:

Hoodoo: best lyrics ever written by Matt and only pwopa piano song in the album

MoTP: a greatly dinamic song that never actually uses its own main chord

CoD: I used to skip it and never really put attention to the string details, I thought the melody in the chorus was annoying but once i heard the strings in it, the melody quite changed to awesome...

Assassin: Love Dom's snare and matts work on layered vocals

Invincible: I thought it was cheesy at first... but until i saw it live and sang along with other 50 thousand people i understood the song's real meaning.. and the solo made me cry that day

TaB: I'd say it's one of the best songs they've done... It says prog rock all over it, it's awesome and though the lyrics are very simple.. theyre the most agresive and self-convinced and convincing lyrics ive ever heard... THE SONG IS MADE UP OF ONLY THREE CHORDS IN FOUR DIFFERENT SCALES!!

Knights of Cydonia: Also prog and the best ending guitar riff ever

Exo-Politics: technically its not the album version which deserves to be named one of the best inside it but... I think they chose the wrong lyrics to this one because there was an early version in 2005 which had different lyrics and was a bit more riffy and i loved that one.. so sad they didnt record it..

SMBH: Sexy and girls like it
__________________________________________________ ________________________

Worst Songs: They're actually not bad but as I said before i like them

Starlight: Great for stadiums at night

Soldiers Poem: If it was inside a muse acoustic album itd fit perfectly
__________________________________________________ ________________________

Favorite moments: "I've had recurring nightmares"... "You'll burn in hell for your sins" and TaB echoes... "Lonelyness be over"... CoD flanger bass interlude buildup.. Invincible solo.. Assassin triplets.. KoC last riff :P

Don't think I ranked the songs before
1. Knights of Cydonia
2. Map of the Problematique
3. Take a Bow
4. Hoodoo
5. City of Delusion
6.. Starlight (don't kill me)
7. Invincible (cheesy, but I actually quite like it)
8. Supermassive Black Hole
9. Assassin (it's quite strange: live, this songs is brilliant, but on the album, it doesn't do much for me. I don't think they recorded it very well)
10. Soldier's Poem (pleasant, but not the certainly not the best track on the album)
11. Exo-Politics (a bit bland, nothing that bad though.)
