Personally, I've always maintained that Absolution is the best album, but Origin Of Symmetry has the best songs.

Not sure quite how to explain it really. They would be my top two albums together anyway, but I've always preferred the overall sound of Absolution, and the balance between the heavier and softer songs, the guitar driven songs and the piano driven songs, the sound of the instruments and probably the overall feel of the album as a whole. Yes, it's a bit stop-start, I suppose with the alternation between song styles, but I always feel like that's the album I probably judge the rest of Muse against, maybe as I was getting into them as a band around that time too. Origin Of Symmetry has so many top songs though, that OoS at its best song-wise is probably better than Absolution song-wise. In terms of the consistency over the whole album though, I probably prefer Absolution, even though there are still a couple of songs I don't really listen to that much on both of them.

^ I can get that. Bit like me with Black Holes. The flow and production/mastering isn’t there but I have a huge soft spot for it’s aesthetic/feel, as well as some obvs brilliant songs. Still couldn’t put it above Origin though, which is an out-and-out masterpiece imo (aside from FG).

Abso’s weird to me. You always see it touted as among their best, if not #1 and, in theory, it’s about as ‘quintessential Muse’ as you can get sonically (mastering aside) but I don’t think I’ve ever felt anywhere near that level of connection to it. The quality’s just as scattered as the flow to me, for every good song there’s one I’m not interested in.

AP? Great! TIRO? Meh. S4A? Meh. Stockholm? Okay, getting good again. FAWY? Eh, 50/50. Second half gets even more polarising as well, can’t connect with an album as up and down as that.

Absolution was my favourite until a few years ago, but its moved towards Origin of late. Clearer production helps.

Absolution is strange as I really don't care for the ordering of the album but I love every song so much it's possibly the one case where I can actually look past flow.
