Best Muse Album

There were a number of comments which I was surprised at, namely how many people dislike Absolution. So I thought this would be a good, albeit obvious thread to do.

At this time what do people think is the best Muse album and why?

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 very much doubt they'll be able to top OoS, but that's not a bad thing, as that's one hell of an album.

Agreed, but The Resistance (for me anyway) REALLY comes close to equalling it

Even with the 'honeymoon' period, OoS is still my favourite. The battle for me is whether or not this album is better than Absolution

Worst album: Black Holes and Revelations.

Favourite: Origin

The Resistance and Absolution pretty much equal and not too far behind

Worst: a harder choice than most people find it for me but ill still have to say BHAR, though that isnt poor by any stretch of the imagination

For me, Showbiz has by far the best production of any of Muse's records. However I think that there's only 4 tracks which I could say are classics.

BHAR has some quality tracks on it, but there are probably more weak tracks on there than any other album.

They'll be able to make one hell of a greatest hits album when they want to cash in their pensions.

Probably BH&R. But OOS and Absolution are on the same level really.

Cant judge The Resistance yet.

1st: Origin of Symmetry. Riffs, riffs, BASS! PIANO! It has everything. I love it, my favourite album for personal reasons.
2nd: The Resistance: Like Origin, for me there isn't a song where I think "ewww". It has some of Muse's best material to date.
3rd: Absolution: Great album, feels too long sometimes though, and I don't like some songs (like Endlessly)
Tied 4th place: Showbiz and BH&R: Showbiz has Overdue on it, which is god-awful.
BH&R has SP on it, which is just as awful. Both have their strong and weak points. I like them both.

I didn't vote as i'm not sure.
It's tight between OoS and BH&R
Then come Absolution, Showbiz and The Resistance.

No, i'm not a big fan of The Resistance, maybe it'll grow on me later, but as of now, i only really like five songs (Three of which are Exogenesis).

As of now The Resistance, but that might change, when I've gotten used to the songs and all...

Totally agree, which is why I'm so chuffed the new album didn't go down the same road.
