To me is not a problem, TR is a solid album as a whole, as you said don't have highs or lows. Is a concept like these old progressive albums of the '70s you have to sit and listen to the full thing for a better experience.

Listening to TR in full for the first time in a while and suddenly I love it. Even GL sounds amazing.

I give up on having opinions.

Edit: IBTY is still bad.

IBTY is worth it for the clarinet solo.

I guess you have to be high on some substance to like this album.

Tbf, Guiding Light is an epic track. It just got horrendously over played and as such, went the way of Feeling Good / Starlight etc.

It does seem that The Resistance kinda just plateaux's throughout though. In previous albums there was always a riff or something to change the records direction. You dont really get that with The Resistance. Even MK Ultra's pretty weak compared to previous songs.

Saying that, I do actually like the album, it kinda works as a whole.

IMHO this album starts reasonably well (although as far as first 2/3 opening tracks go all of the previous albums are superior, and Resistance is kinda average) and ends brilliantly, but from the second chorus of USOE to the end of IBTY it drags a fair bit.

Unnatural Selection is a beast live, and actually having listened to it again today it's not that bad on record either. But the lyrics are kinda annoying ("counterbalance this commotion" etc) and the middle section kinda plods along without any atmosphere at all (again, it's better live)

Guiding Light isn't actually completely awful on record but it falls just short of being the powerful and poignant song it could have been (and is propped up heavily by the solo) and IBTY is completely the wrong side of cheesy, I kinda have to be in a certain mood to listen to it.

MK Ultra is just crap filler. The lyrics are unacceptable, the intro is uninteresting (it sounds like a melody from an ABBA song, but sped up and just generally layered in shite) and the verses are laughable. It's got a vaguely heavy section after the (boring) chorus which they also make into what could have been a good outro, except for the fact they stick this noise that sounds like a blackbird getting raped all over it.

So for me as a collection of songs it's a bit of a meh record. I still think thematically and sonically it is far more cohesive than T2L though, and thus works better as an album.

The definition of "opinion" has changed to include this specific string of words being objectively incorrect.

I wonder when we're going to run out of quirky ways of expressing disagreement.

Everyone saying Muse has become worse after BHAR is a fanboy. Their quality as a live band and ther quality as musicians has evoled so much. And that has been the process since 20 years
