does everybody own showbiz??? last place by miles...

1.OOS / Showbiz 10/10 sunburn, muscle museum, falling down, cave, showbiz, unintended, uno, sober, htaiwly are not only "a few" awesome songs for me ^^ . emotional like a rollercoaster ride, so it can compensate the technical skills the band developed through the years. technically matt sings far better today, but the way he used his voice during the first 2 records is mindblowing and much more dynamic than nowadays. take showbiz for example, its one of the easiest songs to play on a guitar, but the "tension" it creates shows, that you dont need much ingredients, to wrote a kick ass song.

2.Absolution 10/10 simply rocks, but i didnt want to put 3 records in first place

3.BHAR 8/10 Knights of Cydonia (best live song together with plug in baby)

4.Resistance 8/10 mk ultra, i belong to you (totally underrated for me)

5.2nd Law 7/10 mid part of the cd makes this the "worst" one for me (listened to it like 12 times now)

I know, it sounds riddiculous...I think Save me is ok...Liquid State not that much...the last two are good too...But the overall album feels weeker IMHO than The Resistance (and the others)...It's a hard competiton - I like basically every Muse song - even GL, Soldier's Poem, even NSC (minus the lyrics) - I just feel T2L (as a whole album) is my least favourite album...But that doesn't mean I don't like any particular song (Explorers ) I just like them less than the other...If I compare songs like ToaDA, Falling Down, Screenager, Hoodoo and even GL with those on T2L, I must say the previous albums win...

But I'm pleased with the "hits" so far...Supremacy is experimental, kick-a*se and emotional, Madness and Panic Station are cool...And Survival (when I actually started liking the choir ) is another great Muse anthem like KoC, Uprising etc...

My gut instinct:
1. OoS
2. Abso
3. Resistance
4=. BHaR/Showbiz

It's too early to place T2L just yet I think...

It would be interesting to see if those who rate OoS and Abso highly are the older musers for whom these albums bring back some sort of nostalgia and the emotions of being young teenagers listening to these albums or if there are some new musers who aren't teenagers who rate OoS above the others. Nothing that anyone brings out will ever top those two for me because they were important in my formative years and got me through the silly ups and downs of teenage life so I'm much more emotionally attached to them than other albums but I don't know what I'd feel listening to them all for the first time now. No doubt this subject has been discussed before on these boards though so I'll just shut up now... OoS rules

P.s. To fit in with my above theory, I guess the reason I'm rating Showbiz lower than the more recent ones is that I must've listened to it when I was too young for it to have had a real emotional impact on me? Who knows... I just never really think to put on BHaR or Showbiz. I'm always pleasantly surprised when I do though.

Well - I started listening to Muse in 2010, at first I knew only a couple of songs from Absolution (Butterflies and Hurricanes, Hysteria and Stockholm Syndrome), then I saw the Wembley DVD and after that the older stuff - OoS and Showbiz...And after everything I got The Resistance...And really - I needed some time and multiple listenings at first to digest Matt's vocals (Butterflies and Hurricanes were the only song from Muse on my Ipod for like 3 months)...I really loved Absolution and BHaR just a little less...But I can never forget the first time I heard OoS album - especially Bliss to Space Dementia and CE to Micro Cuts and Megalomania ! Now my favourite is still Abso, but then just an inch after is OoS and I love also Showbiz - far more then TR...

So there you have it...I'm 23 and I started listening to Muse in 2010 and I still love Abso and OoS the most...Really - out of my top 10 songs 8 are from Abso/OoS and I think Absolution tour is the best and peaked at The Earls Court gigs...Too bad we have only audio :-( I'd kill to have an Earls Court DVD... :-(

The Resistance (Don't look at me like that)
The 2nd Law (Only Madness is absolutely utterly shit)
Black Holes & Revelations (Soldiers Poem & Invincible are stopping this from being number one)
Origin Of Symmetry (Feeling Good just does too much damage)
Absolution (Endlessly, FAWY, TOADA, S4A, too much filler)
Showbiz (A product of it's time and out-done thereafter)

No. Madness is good. Very good. (Not saying no to your spotting of T2L. Just your opinion about Madness).

Yes.
The Resistance and Absolution tend to flip flop quite a bit on my list.
