For me:

1. OOS
2. Black Holes & Revelations
3. The Resistance
(reasonably big gap)
4. Absolution
5. Showbiz

Really nothing between the first three though. And I'm not knocking the other two either - both have several songs I love on them.

More than ever is the description "A handful of bangers and the rest fillers' apt... But I feel the strongest songs on a commercial tip are from this album. This is why I believe even far into the future, this album will feature strongly in all live Muse sets.
I suspect its going to come at a lot of peoples last choice. For me it's some of the most Creative work they have done as musicians as individual songs, MOTP, COD, excellent. But as an Album the weakest album they have done.

Absolution is a journey from start to end. It is such a strong album, even with the straight forward songs such a TSP or TOADA.

I would be very happy not to hear starlight on the setlist. The very fact there are commercialy known songs is the Influence of Warner who have no influence on Live tours.

Give me Dead Star Of Fury any day in such songs like that.

1 Absolution / Resistance (Can't make my mind up ATM)
2 OOS
3 BHAR
4 Showbiz

It's far more of a creative attempt than say Origin of Symmetry (which is my favourite Muse album), but as an album it bombs, because there's one thing with being creative, its an entirely another thing to make it work, and I just don't feel Black Holes and Revelations has any flow or any common ground which make all the tracks feel like part of an album.

BHaR has many great songs, but it simply doesn't work as an album like the others. The Resistance flows exceptionally well, and that's why it stole the crown from OoS for me. Although that gap (the song quality one) between them is growing for me... Slowly, but it is...

It's my 2nd favourite album so I couldn't vote for it.

Well yes, maybe. I do seem to see things (or hear things in this case) differently to other people most of the time.

BHAR disappointed me. It has a couple of my favourite Muse tracks on it but as an album it's just a bit "meh" for me. Full of too many ideas that don't seem to go in the direction they were aiming for. I find I skip the majority of that album.

But what do I know? One of my favourite tracks is Hoodoo and lots of people hate that one

So yeah BHAR is definitely my least favourite and I consider it their weakest.

My favourites on BHaR are Hoodoo, City of Delusion and Take a Bow in that order.

The opening paragraph of my review of The Resistance sums up my feelings of BHaR really.
