Most on this board seem to like exogenesis so I get where youre coming from and it was all critically acclaimed etc but for anyone who doesnt like classical stuff (I mean as in symphonies I get muse has lots of classical elements) or just doesnt like it thats a big chunk of the album that they just wont listen to. E.g I like exogenesis but part of what makes the album meh is that I'll almost never listen to it and so reduces the ratio of 'listenable/skippable' in the album further than theother meh songs that I mentioned.

But I recognise that im talking a fair amount of bollocks here to the majority of people

Tbh I've never heard a Muse fan...or anyone ever for that matter, say that they don't like Exogenesis.

Whenever I hear of someone skipping it it's mostly because they want to listen to the whole thing and don't feel like they can give it the attention it deserves.

I also think since Exo was maybe not the magnum opus it was painted out to be there wasn't so much praise to create controversy either, like discussions over Citizen Erased and its overrated level.

Tbh I think a big reason to why it's rarely put down is because even though people don't like the style/genre, they "appreciate" that it's impressive. It's a masterpiece because that's what it's supposed to be.

TBH exogenesis sympathy does nothing for me, I appreciate it as a piece of music but I never listen to it and I couldn't have cared less if it wasn't on the album.

My housemate who kinda likes Muse (i.e most singles) to me before the stadium tour: "I hope you get that really long thing that's three parts because it's shit."

You should've convinced him to start a campaign kinda like #GuidingLightforItaly. Then you'd actually get full Exo and be like

Overall I feel it's uninspired and it's my least listened to album of the whole bunch. Only one I've played in the past year is MK Ultra and Unnatural Selection (to compare it with the live version they played).

I dislike it mostly because the tour was a disappointment and the material is my least favorite live (but at least Starlight didn't suck back then) . The album isn't up to par with the rest but it's still a great album, just a mediocre Muse album. I can't really think of anything I want to hear live from album so honestly I see it as a waste of three years.

It's clearly their best sympathy though.

Yes but that's like having a best way of getting hit by a car. I just don't like sympathies from muse as they are capable of producing more engaging music down other avenues of music only my opinion though!
