The Resistance has 9 songs, and many of the 5 minute songs could have been 3 minutes.

Yes, actually close to my favorite part of the album.

This massively confuses me. I can understand CD, but Mon Couer is just some of the lyrics within I Belong To You, it's clearly a single song.

And yes, again above poster, Muse need to do a lofi album!

Tongue First Post

Hi there, I've been following this forums for some time, but now I feel like posting on them.

My order is, to my own surprise:
1- The Resistance
2-Origin of Symmetry

3-Absolution
4-Showbiz
5-Black Holes and Revelations.



After hearing The Resistance three times per day on the internet while my iTunes LP doesn't arrive, I can say I finally decided: it is a better album than OoS. This socked me, as I never thought anything could possibly top OoS, simply because it has New Born AND Citizen Erased, one being my favorite song of all time, the other for being simply a kick-ass 7:20 classic.

But The Resistance is simply better structured and more well-rounded as a whole than OoS, with no 'weak' or 'skipper' tracks at all. Feeling Good, Space Dementia (which I do like a lot, but I just skip it sooo much), Dark Shines... I'm looking at you. It flows better as an album, too.

What really makes The Resistance steal the crown from OoS is Exogenesis. God, that song is amazing It still isn't my favorite because I really do miss some 3 minutes of pure prog-rock thrown in the middle just for the sake of being the most complete song ever (also, I tend to listen much more to the rockier songs of Muse). But I must admit, Overture alone matches the depth of feeling I have with New Born, and while Cross-Pollination and Redemption aren't better than it, they expand this experience to 12 minutes of awesomeness that really couldn't be beaten if not by a 15 minute version of Exogenesis+Energetic-prog-to-symbolize-humanity-is-reborn.

I like Uprising, it isn't a melt-facer starter, but it is a good one that sets the mood.
I love Resistance, it is simply so much better of what I ever thought it would be
I like/love Undisclosed Desires. I don't mind it being different, it was great but I felt it could sound a little more epic, as far as love songs go.
I like USoE, it is great as a wacky experimental song, but was too short, there was too little time to develop (yes, I know it lasts 5 minutes )
I love Guiding Light, it may be slow and all, but it is just...too...POWERFUL...ARGH MY EARS!
I love US, the only I thing I don't like of this song is that it just isn't enough to best Citizen Erased
I OFMG LOVE MK ULTRA, if it lasted as long as New Born and had a bigger/better middle riff it would easily overthrow it
Exogenesis... I already spoke my mind about it

That's my first post. If anything, please forgive my English

Absolution is by far and away my favourite album; there is not a bad track on there.

I would say that for the others I rate them all pretty equally. I've always found Hullabaloo to be the one I skip tracks on the most but that doesn't mean I think it's a bad album because there are some quality songs on it.

I've listened to the Resistance a couple of times today and I do love it but I don't believe it'll beat Absolution for me

This is my ranking:

1) Origin of Symmetry
2) The Resistance
3) Black Holes and Revelations
4) Showbiz
5) Absolution

Absolution is my least favourite because I don't like the majority of the musical compositions on it.

I can't believe that so many of you are rating The Resistance so high already, I can't even think of it standing next to the other albums yet, its too early.

I have no idea yet where The Resistance will be on my list. In fact, I have a hard time ranking the other albums. I usually rate OoS #1, but sometimes Abso, and unlike most people, I really like BHaR. That's probably because it was the first Muse album I heard. But it's likely it would've struck me as an odd album had I heard the older records when they came out.
