It’s the most boring Muse album

In fact it might be the only boring Muse album

TR is far more interesting than T2L imo. The songwriting is better, the album more coherent, and there are no absolute stinkers on it like Explorers and Big Freeze. Iím surprisingly cool with Guiding Light these days tbh.

That said, I still think Supremacy is a good song, Survival is fun, Madness is a genuinely nice and heartfelt poppy moment and Isolated System gives me chills.

Itís not even so much to do with song quality, itís mostly just soooo tame. TR always felt like an awkward middle child album to me, as if the band werenít totally sure where they wanted to go next yet so ended up meandering around with stuff they were comfortable with instead. Itís technically a better constructed album than T2L for sure but itís way flatter and less entertaining.

TR is still my favorite Muse album. I always enjoyed GL; killer guitar solo.

Mine, too. Exogenesis is their magnum opus, imo.

I think it suffers a lot in that regard from the production and being 'over polished'.

Uprising, UD, USoE, MK ULTRA and Unnatural Selection especially are all so much better in their live iterations imo - especially the latter two.

Still find Drones as a whole to be more boring though.

I find the T2L production to be over-polished and lifeless. It almost ruins some great songs.

Seeing this thread pumped inspired me to listen to TR all the way through (probably the first time in years) a few times. I think it suffered in its time as being the album after BHAR and therefore inevitably a disappointment, considering how much I liked Abso and BHAR. But listening to it now, it's a good album and lot more coherent and tasteful than T2L and Drones; however it doesn't feature any of my favourite Muse songs, not including Exogenenis which I tend to view as a seperate entity rather than just a song, if that makes any sense.

Unnatural selection is a bit frustrating as I love the middle section - it's the sexiest rock thing they've ever done- but the rest of the song is just okay. I think for years I listened to a fan edit of IBTY with the French part edited out rather than the real version- I think I still prefer it as a straightforward pop song. I must dig up that file somewhere.

Basically after the big three: ST> TR> Showbiz> Drones>T2L.

Individually I love Overture, MK Ultra and bits of other songs, but the blandess of the album just puts me off.

I Belong To You is one of their worst efforts and the first 2 songs are way too long and a slog to get through.

Still better than Drones tho as the highs are really really really good.

5 stars.

Good things about the album: Literally all of the songs. The fact that Muse weren't afraid to step into this genre/theme.

Bad things about the album: Nothing bad about it really. Though if I had to pick something as a matter of life-or-death, it kind of lacks that classical Muse feel like the first four albums had - Subjectively could be a good thing too.

Best track: Resistance, Guiding Light, or MK Ultra.

Worst track: Exogenesis (Collectively. In my humble opinion, it's really quite boring for 15 minutes and doesn't strike me as interesting at all. Though I do not at all deny the fact that it is still a masterpiece, the band must've had a lot of dedication and determination to make these three tracks.)

Favourite moment: "Love is our resistance...", "It's time to run...", "You were my guiding light", "Now we're falling, we are losing control", "I travelled half the world to say, I belong to you", "Let's push it beyond a peaceful protest".
