The only issue I have with his art is that it looks like other pieces created by him. It's often really obvious that he's done it. But having said that, I quite like most of the stuff he's done.

OoS
absolution
BH&R
showbiz

as for singles, I love the "cave" artwork. wouldn't mind having that blown up and hanging on my wall.
KoC
like mentioned, supermassive black hole... that, in my opinion, would also look cool on a wall.

I think The Resistance has two different interpretations:

1- It's a visual representation of the album; all the styles and genres are represented by the colors. The recurring theme of 'Resistance' is present both in the songs and the General Artwork

2- It's a representation of Exogenesis, in the way that the path the man must go through to save humanity will only lead to the start, or 'Earth', representing the idea that what happens in the song is just a big cycle and the humankind will have to go through it unless they change

OoS or TR are probably my favourite album artworks. Also, am I the only one that likes all the single artworks from a certain era (like absolution era, BH&R etc...) to be all similar, like all the BH&R single artworks were similar, all the OoS. Now they've ruined it with Uprising and UD which are completely different

BH&R is probably, together with the single art from BH&R my favourite.

BH&R>Abso=The Resistance>OoS>Showbiz.

The artwork for the BHaR singles are amazing ^_^ I love Jasper Goodall's art, he's super =)

The Resistance album has the best cover in my opinion

Loves Muse's artwork. Absolution is probably my favourite and Showbiz is my least favourite.

you're totally right! never thought of that. i wouldn't mind if all singles from the resistance followed the symmetric colorful shapes...

I read in a magazine, something about the TR cover art- The tesselation of hexagons being a futuristic representation of a womb, and the guy standing on the beam of light is on his way to inseminate the egg, which, funnily enough, happens to be the Earth.

I think that, the little sillouette of the man, who appears frequently throughout the TR album booklet arkworks, is the subject of er, most of the songs on the album- Especially Exogenesis. Since the Earth is ahead of him, this could mean it's his responsibility, he has to save it. It certainly sounds something like that, according to Cross-Pollination. And the hexagons- Numerologically, hexagons represent union: This could be shown represent the governments.

God, I feel stupid But that's how I see it.

OoS- This is confusing me just as much as everyone else. But I always saw the electricity posts as symmetrical...That's all I know.

Absolution- It's lovely, it always had an eerie feeling about it, especially with that guy standing there. He's awesome Anyway, I always saw the shadows as souls chosen by God or something of that manner, since there is a lot to do with religion in this album.

Showbiz- I actually really, really like it. I always have. I think it might even be one of my favourites. Although I'm not sure if there is meant to be a meaning to it, or Matt and the designer just thought of it and slapped it up on photoshop? But whatever it is, it's clearly on a different planet, and the girl is scared out of her mind.

BH&R- I can tell by the tiny Earth in the sky and the red ground that these guys are on Mars. Cydonia, maybe? Maybe they are the Knights of Cydonia? It's an interesting idea, but I always saw these guys as a futuristic representation as the 5(?) Horsemen of the Apocalypse. Maybe that's what they were trying to convey, putting those toy horses on the table.

1. The Resistance - Favorite for sure - would love to have this in large print for my wall. Like the concept of the different colours representing the fusion of music genres that make up the album.
I see the figure as a lone man, heading down a path that would bring all new ideas to earth.

2. Origin of Symmetry
3. Absolution
4. Black Holes and Revelations
5. Showbiz

I think the BHAR album art looks silly.

TR and Showbiz are merely OK. Showbiz is a bit disjointed, TR a bit too busy.

Abso and OOS art are excellent, simple and eye-catching
