This mainly yes - I maintain Exo-Politics and Invincible are fundamentally horrible songs. Knights is fun but it really is just three chunks badly mushed together and really does fail to deliver until the final third (plus the lyrical are grim). Assassin also suffered badly from cenception to album.

I’d say The Resistance has the weakest songs of any Muse album bar T2L, but there are quite a few poor songs dressed up in a style I enjoy. The only real exception being Resistance which is a bland song in every respect.

MK Ultra and US hit the sound I love about Muse, even if they are by no means among their best songs.

Gonna go ahead and kill any good will I've acrued on this board by saying that Drones has my least favorite songwriting. Maybe it wasn't as bad as I'm making it out to be, but I'm none too keen on the idea of a concept album by a band that has no grasp on subtlety. (We get it the nAME OF THE ALBUM IS DRONES PLEASE STOP SAYING THAT!)

You'll be glad to hear that that was pretty much what most [of the vocal] people on here felt as well. Matt's lyrics have [mostly] gone to complete shit and the lack of subtlety was definitely something a lot of people mocked the band for, even outside the fandom. I mean just look at that cover...

Apparently Mutt, the producer of Drones, actually told Matt to dumb down the lyrics.

EDIT: Here are some relevant reflections from people http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?...9#post11706329

I'll stop packing my bags then! I've never been a huge fan of Matt's lyrics but that's not what drew me to the band in the first place but it just seemed very in-your-face on Drones. And oh...that cover... By comparison, I much prefer the 80s motif they've gone for with DD and TC to the "Do you get it?" Imagery from Drones. At least DD and TC don't seem as self-serious. (Also I love the 80s )

Drones lyrics were a low point, which is saying something considering Matt's never been much of a poet. I loved the music too much to care much about the lyrical dip though.

Like the idea of them taking an 80s direction for LP8 though.

I think drones is one of there better albums for lyrics. Dead Inside and The Handler are both excellent here, imo.

At least the two songs with the best lyrics were used as examples.

DI's lyrics are among Matt's best ever. The rest of the album though is atrocious.

I don't know what happened to let Matt nail it on DI but he needs to bring it back because nothing else on the album came close.
