I think this is the first Muse album where there isn’t a song I can point to and say ‘I don’t like that one’. However, there are fewer highs than any album so far. The title track is one of their best, but most of the songs are middling and forgettable. The Exogenesis
piece I anticipated was going to be wonderful and the perfect next step for a band as overblown as Muse to take, but it’s a little bland and turns out it’s not the sort of thing I want from Muse. This also represents the turning point in my fandom timeframe – I began to not care as much about the band as I had in their (and my) earlier days. No bad songs, but if someone told me to sing a bit from anything other than my top two picks, I wouldn’t be able to.
- Undisclosed Desires.
- MK Ultra.
- Unnatural Selection.
- Guiding Light.
- I Belong To You (Mon Couer S’Ouvre a Ta Voix).
- United States Of Eurasia (and Collateral Damage).
