Nah, don't think so. A few people obvs love it to bits but I think most people probs fall somewhere into that 'alright' category, from what I've seen anyway.

Showbiz is the worst Muse album. It's still damn great, but the ones that came after it are even better.

And for them T2l is the worst?

I share the opinion with The Happy Spaceman.

I like The 2nd Law. Resistance is the one I think is the weakest Muse album, even if it has my favourite cover art, weirdly.

Alright, here's another grenade:

My list for albums from best to worst:

Origin
BHaR
T2L
Abso
Showbiz
TR
Drones

Yes, I do think Drones is their worst album, even if I often defend some of the songs more than, uh, certain other members. I just think it suffers from the same as TR, but to a massively bigger extent: It's booooooooooooooooorrrrrrrrriiiiiiiiiiingggggg.

Oh yeah and T2L is better than Abso, come at me!

Here we go then.

CoD's not a bad song, but it seems to be treated as if it's close to top-tier on here a lot of the time, and I don't get it at all. The bit before the second verse is great (especially the guitar crunches) but the chord progression isn't that interesting, and it's repeated so much - even through the solo. I know this is true of MoTP too (for example), but Map's guitar parts and harmonies are far more interesting than CoD's.
The lyrics also aren't that great considering how forthrightly they are delivered, especially in the chorus. It's not catchy, it's not compelling - someone once suggested "just-i-fy my reea-sons" was one of the big dramatic moments within Muse's works, but those lyrics are hardly gripping, are they? - and it's so immediately overblown. Chucking all the drama with the strings and big vocals into the first chorus means there's no real sense of climax at the end, and you know exactly what's coming when it arrives.

I think it had the potential to be a much better piece than it is (like Exo, Assassin etc.). They could have done more with the trumpet, instead of have it noodle over the same melody we've already heard 3 times. They could have added a bridge with a different melody, and pared down the first chorus, I dunno. As it stands it's not more than a 7 or 8 out of 10 though.

Knights is good, but the studio version pales in comparison to the live one. And no, that's not the case with most Muss songs.
