Showbiz is pretty damn good. I've give it a 7/10. It's just a few tracks like Escape and Sober had the potential to be so much better, and tracks like Fillip and Overdue are just pants.

Sunburn, Muscle Museum, Falling Down, Cave, Showbiz, Unintended, Uno and Hate this & I'll Love You are all classics for me.

I would advise not answering the poll until the "honeymoon period" has ended. However if you're confident you won't change your mind, feel free.

Also what's everyone's least favourite record?

Favourite: Absolution; I like the greater emphasis on chillout songs.
Least Favourite: Black Holes and Revelations; I don't like the production.
I'm voting for The Resistance although i've only listened to Uprising and USoE but the stars seem aligned for this one to me. The cover art is my favorite EVER and this is the first time i've had to wait for an album, so i ought to be excited. The music also sounds like i'll it enjoy it a WWWWWWWWWWHHHHHHOOOLLLLLLEEEEE lot

Wow, you must be really confident to vote for it when you haven't even heard the whole thing! I don't think you'll be disappointed.

That's the thing. Muse are better at writing songs now, but their production is a matter of taste, and my taste says "dirty guitars and stripped back acoustic pleeeezz!"

I still think OOS is the best album. But I have to say that Muse nearly hold their promises as they said they will make their best record so far with the resistance! Itīs not as good as OOS but I think itīs made the second place

(hope my english is not too bad, Iīm a foolish german guy )

Don't you DARE diss Sober and Fillip!

Falling Down? I dunno why, it always reminds me of a brazilian soup opera . I hate soup operas. But FD is OK.

I voted for Absolution, but I actually meant to vote for OoS.

My favorite song ever, Space Dementia, is on OoS, so yeah, pretty much a no-brainer.

There are Muse's five studio album, in order of my preference:

1) Origin of Symmetry
2) The Resistance
3) Absolution
4) Black Holes and Revelations
5) Showbiz (even though I do like it )

I can't make my mind up - give me a few years on this one.
BH&R was the album that knocked my socks off. I bought showbiz when it came out and then all the other albums when they came out. Always thought they where great. But it was BH&R that grabbed me. I went back and re-listened to all the previous albums and it was like hearing them fresh and from a different perspective.
I sometimes forget how good Take a Bow is. The first few times it give me shivers down the spine. I think it was the 1st time I really listened to the lyrics. Great music combined with world leaders burning in the eternal fires of hell - what could be better (in 2006).
So I am biased because it was the album that f***ing grabbed me.

For me Hullabaloo should be considered. The songs from OOS really come to life on that album, way more than the studio versions. For me, Muse are the best live band performing now and their music sounds better live. Even the abbey road sessions sounded better than the album versions.

I can’t comment on The Resistance as I haven’t heard it yet.

My favourite Muse album has always been Absolution. I've only listened to the Resistance twice so I can't make a decision about it yet.

To be honest OOS is the album I enjoy listening to the least.

Ironically, it was Sober that first got me into Muse. Well Sober and Bliss. I think Sober was in Gran Turismo and I loved it at the time. However, looking back, I think a lot of songs from that game are pants and Sober only sits on the high end of that list as the least pants of the pants lol.

It is simple, but it works. I like it.

BTW, I forgot to mention I Belong To You in my first post. I love it. It surpassed my expectations. The clarinet solo is

OOS wil always be my fav because its just so "me". The Resistance is at a second place.

Worst: Absolution, thought its still great and has some of the best muse songs on it.
Showbiz used to be my least favourite but it started to grow on me.

None of the above. HAARP is my favorite.
