Album Review

If you're going to pillage someone else's ideas, then go for broke. Because even if you find yourself crammed between the barriers of creative space, utterly at a loss for ideas, expression, or thought, you'd still have a self-respect buzzing in your ear like a mad angelic insect, putting down the newspaper and taking out a cigar to remind you that, hell, if want to sound like Radiohead when even Thom Yorke doesn't want to sound like Radiohead, you might as well take it to preposterous, bombastic, over-the-top levels. Add church organs, mental electronics, riffs bouncing off each other like the monolithic screams in 2001: A Space Odyssey, and you'll finally be in position to crack skulls like coconuts and make the world's speakers ooze gooey blood.

where did the reviews go?

Don't pay attention to any reviews below 5 stars this album is a masterpiece. This album had 5 stars before the reviews got erased for some reason.

Overrated and I'm not sure where the other reviews went

Where did the other reviews go?? Whatever. First off, this is not a bad album. But it's praised as Muse's best when it definitely is not. New Born, Bliss, Plug in Baby, Feeling Good, and Darkshines are the ones I love. However, Space Dementia, Hyper Music, Micro Cuts, Screenager and Megalomania were not that thrilling to me. Heck, even Citizen Erased fell short after all the hype around it. It's more of a 4/5 8/10 album but whatever

Great album

This is my second favorite muse album (my first is absolution.) This used to have five stars and more reviews. Hopefully people will bring it back to 5 stars.
