How do you feel about the 'slow' album songs?

All the albums seem to have one

We're talking Unintended, Screenager, Blackout, Soldier's Poem, Guiding Light, Save Me and Aftermath.

Personally I enjoy most of them (probably all with the exception of Save Me) but I know a lot of people aren't fans of the more mellow Muse tracks.

I don't think people like or dislike certain songs merely because they are slow, but just because they do or don't think it is a good slow song. You could classify RBS as a slow song, which I think is amazing, while I think Aftermath is pathetic.

Exactly.

From the songs that whoknowswho listed, I like Screenager, Guiding Light and Aftermath, but the others are pretty weak.

I'd classify Endlessly and FAWY slow songs as well, but those two are among my favorites off Abso.

Being the song slow or fast. Acoustic or heavy guitars. That`s not exctly what matters to me. It is about the theme, the lyrics, the melody. My answer whether or not and why i like determined song is not based upon this logic.

I wish Matt would write more slow songs. 'Unintended' is my favourite Muse song.

"Slow Songs"... probably the TS meant ballads?

Some slow songs like Blackout, Hyper Chondriac Music and Ruled by Secrecy are totally badass.

About ballads, Muse have some good ones and some meh ones, they are not my favourite type of songs anyway so i'm not going to enter in deep here.

I would class Blackout as a ballad.

HCM and Hoodoo. Are both absolute musts. Probs won't hit you straight away but they're both growers and fantastic songs IMO

Explorers I'm not too fussed about, nice little song though that you may enjoy

True. The same could also be said for Hoodoo and HCM.
