Muse Album Art Discussion Thread

this was probably already done, but i couldn't find it. so lets discuss:

Showbiz: interesting art, the blue planet shows the interest of science and the girl makes the album's theme relate to love.

OoS: i still don't know what this is of and i REALLY want to know (it's like the main reason i made this thread) but i guess it sums up the overall uniqueness of the album.

Absolution: shows the theme of religion throughout the album and makes you think.

BH&R: i thought i read somewhere this was of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse (did i say that right? ) and it shows the space theme with the planet they're on

TR: symbolizes exogenesis and all the beauty of the world with the colors.

overall i think it goes: TR>OoS>Abso>BH&R>Showbiz

Yay!

I really love Muse's album art, it's always so mysterious and often really makes you think!
Absolution is my favorite, I love the eerie theme and the question - do these people leave Earth or are they coming down to it? I like to think they are some strange people coming down to Earth, it's nice and creepy

I agree about OoS - wth does it mean? ^^ But this mystery adds to the beauty of it!

BH&R is a little freaky, but overall fits with Muse's beloved space theme.

I found The Resistance's artwork a little disappointing, it's way too colorful imo, but even this artwork fits with the diversity of styles and influences and the overall beauty of the record.

The artwork for Showbiz is quite dull in my opinion. It barely does anything for me, and I feel the addition of that girl is really random.

But overall, as I said, Muse's artworks rules - especially those done by Storm Thorgerson

strange, i know it doesn't have to do anything with the topic lol but Hullabaloo is growing on me so much that i'm crazily calling it my favorite Muse album atm because i love the haunting atmosphere. i'll probably reconsider it a matter of hours but still

btw Hullabaloo's artwork could have been better, but it still captures the album mood

Muse has some really bad album art, probably some of the worst I've seen that still manages to look professional (if you know what I mean). Except for OoS and The Resistance; those two are quite nice.

I think
Absolution < The Resistance < OOS < BH&R < Showbiz

I love all their album art. I really can't bring myself to put it in order of preference.
