Where does The 2nd Law rank for you?

Out of Muse's 6 studio albums, where on YOUR list does it rank?

If you put a gun to my head right now having barely processed it I'd have to say The 2nd Law, The Resistance and Showbiz are the bottom three, in that order. I can never decide the order of the top 3, but I have to stress that I think T2L is closer to the top 3 in quality than it is to the bottom 2 even if it ultimately doesn't reach it.

Its fighting with BH&R for the #3 spot, but I don't see it getting any higher than that. But I will wait a few weeks to vote.

I put it 2nd. I would say on par with Absolution with the risk of slipping into 3rd.

I agree, I think BH&R edged it because there are better overall tracks, but The 2nd Law gives it a run for its money in terms of the quality of the songs i.e Animals and Follow Me - tracks like Soldiers Poem, Hoodoo, Exo-politics bring down the average of quality for BH&R, but then again, for me, Panic Station is just horrendous, and some would argue Survival is just as bad, which drags down the average into 4th place for me.

Probably second. Muse haven't made a strictly cohesive album since 2004, so I don't see why we should expect that now to be honest. I'm sure they did an interview with the BBC where they said they wouldn't make any more "albums" and just make a load of music after BHAR, so looking at it as a collection of songs, with a very loose theme, it's pretty damn great. There's quite a high level of quality running through it, and Supremacy, Panic Station, Follow Me, Animals, Unsustainable and Isolated System is some of their best work (in my opinion of course)

Abso & Origin are the best 2 albums without a doubt.

BHAR edges just ahead of T2L and Showbiz.

For me it's the best of Showbiz (Sunburn, MM, Cave, Showbiz, Unintened, HTAILY)
v.s best of T2L (Supremecy, Animals, Madness, Panic Station, Survival, Unsustainable)

to see which comes out on top.

The Resistance is last.

3rd or 4th. It's about level with Black Holes atm, with Showbiz and The Resistance behind it, and Absolution and Origin ahead of those middle two.

Somewhere between 1-4.

To me, Absolution, BH&R, OOS & T2L are too close to equal.
