At times I prefer it to Absolution, for me those two albums are joint in my ranking, but have Origin, Black Holes and T2L above them with Showbiz bottom (Although I still think there are some cracking tracks on there).

What really ruined The Resistance was the production - I know they had this whole idea of if it was fun, let's do it - they did this on previous albums but when Leckie and Costey produced the albums with them they made the fun work and kept everything cohesive too.

Live the tracks are beasting - Even Guiding Light was kind of enjoyable but admmitedly that tour wasn't great, it was brilliant seeing Cave and MK Ultra live but we all knew they were coming, even at Wembley Bliss, Citizen Erased MK Ultra were nice but had been played regularly enough recently, as with Take A Bow from the last tour and Ruled By Secrecy felt like the only real surprise.

It's also my least favourite one, but I still love it...

Why does it need explanation?

People all have differing opinions. Some like it, some don't.

Get over it.

Exogenesis feels a bit like an opportunity missed to me, but it is nonetheless spectacular. Redemption is weepy brilliance.

It's a good album, but it lacks any truly significant highs.
Basically this

Hmm, interesting. I wonder what the full order from favourite to least favourite is.

1. Origin of Symmetry

2. Absolution

3. The 2nd Law

4. Black Holes & Revelations

5. Showbiz

6. The Resistance




Just a guess.

It's definitely my least favourite by a country mile but I can still find it enjoyable to listen to sometimes, I just need to be in the mood for it.

For me it's better than Showbiz, as a whole.

It's really hard for me to compare TR and Showbiz, simply because they're such hugely different albums. I usually place them at the bottom of my album rankings, but I can't for the life of me decide which one I actually like more.

They both came at different periods during the bands life (and not simply referring to age here).

One was when they were relatively 'free spirits' and didn't life ties.

The other was a main-stream cop out where they made the best ballad of all-time.

You decide which is which.

I never found TR to be that mainstream as other people said. Uprising, Resistance and UD are. Only as much as any other Muse single though. The other songs weren't that mainstream.

It's not underrated, it contains some gems. But there are too many shits songs on it.
