I neither love nor hate it, I just think it's pretty clinical sounding and average.
Good times. the thread where somebody said muse are too 'westernised' (I assume they meant commercial) and I was like, well they are off of Devon

Sorry, I just find it hilariously bad. I just imagine Matt dancing in lederhosen.

My mind makes weird associations

the only tracks I don't like are IBTY and GL, the rest of it's pretty solid (although Uprising's gotten pretty annoying). But MK, US, Exo, Resistance, UD, USOE are good. Don't have much of a problem with this album, it's 2nd Law that fucks me off

I loved it at first, then for a while it was my least favourite album. Now I'd probably rank it 5th out of the 7th albums.

My problem with it is USoE. In my opinion, it kills all the momentum of the album. Also it lacks the 'epic' track in the middle of the album that most of the other albums have (Unnatural Selection is fine, but hardly a classic).

For the record, I actually like GL and IBTY

Count me in!

I love the song Resistance, and US! Exogenesis of course is a masterpiece! I like USOA, even Ibty is somehow great, the atmosphere of this song is so wow .. Altough Matt's French is oh my why didn't they check how to say it?!

I don't like Guiding light, sorry...

I don't get the hate for this album and I don't understand the love for BH&R. I like some songs off it, but as a whole..no thanks!

It's not as bad as people make it out to be but when you put it beside Absolution, Black Holes, Origin of Symmetry - even Drones, it just pales in comparison completely.

for me it just feels like a nearly album - so much potential for great tunes but they missed the mark on a few

My 3rd favourite Muse album. Heavily underrated. Exogenesis is in my opinion Muse's finest work to date, really don't think it can be beaten.

Uprising - meh
Resistance - good (but horrific live)
Undisclosed Desires - surprisingly I hated it for years but now I like it...
USoE - good
Guiding Light - More like Guiding Shite, amirite?
Unnatural Selection - Good song other than that 2 minute shitty solo
Mk Ultra - Fantastic song, one of Muse's best
I Belong To You - Gash
All 3 parts of Exogenesis - meh

It's better than The 2nd Law, I'm not sure about Drones though. Worse than everything else by a country mile

For me, The Resistance was the album where I discovered Muse. Without the success of Uprising and how it managed to break through the sound barrier on my awful radio station, I probably wouldn't have known about them until much later. So, when people say they hate the album because it's commercialized, I am kind of grateful for that.

It's third in my list of albums, just behind Black Holes and Drones. I love the classical elements and how different it is. Plus, Redemption is the most awesome thing to hear first thing in the morning. No other song can make me want to wake up like that one can.

Uprising was the first song that I listened from Muse (being aware) because it appeared in a TV ad (from House M.D). I liked it and I wanted to listen to more songs from Muse so I went to youtube and I searched the Muse videos with more views. I ended up listening to Resistance and Undisclosed Desires. That led me to listen to the older songs

So yeah, maybe now I prefer their older stuff but I wouldn't have discovered it without the comercial success of some tracks from The Resistance so I guess I have to love that album
