I have been a huge Muse fan for years now, since they began with Showbiz. After listening to Showbiz, I was rather worried that they wouldn't be able to follow it up with anything even close to it... how wrong was I. Even with such brilliant albums like Resistance now out, this album is by far the best Muse album they will ever record. It has everything. This album is a must own CD for anyone who likes music! Opening with New Born, slowly reeling you in, holding out for as long as they can before exploding in your ears when they rock on, accompanied with an mind blowing solo, slowly followed by Bliss which is just, again, truly brilliant. You can't help yourself from singing along to Matt's words, even though you can't reach the high notes! Can be embarrassing.. from this, the album maintains an exceptionally high standard with the ever so popular Plug In Baby (which is about his guitar!!) and Feeling Good. My personal favourite is Micro-Cuts where Matt maintains a A-minor throughout... don't try it, I almost lost my voice.. culminating in a fantastic end to the track.. I could go on all night reviewing this album, even now, I still haven't purchased a more satisfying album... if you don't have it BUY IT NOW!!!

Top 100 Music Reviewer

If you tell me, listening to the New Born, 6 minute prog-rock wonder-tainment epic, that you didn't have high hopes for the rest of this album, then you're nothing but a liar.

A second album; yes it does fall into the usual pit falls, a heavy opener, a sombre ending, all those things that seem to be law more than artistic.

Showbiz did have a certain feel to it. Mainly the age old song writing method of making your songs sound like they're directing at a person, as opposed to a thing or event. Origin of Symmetry is in that same feel, but so much more angst filled. Screams of "I DON'T LOVE YOU!" pour out of the epic Hyper Music. But far from being all "Coldplay" and self loathing, this album has the overall feel of some one dragging them selves up from the ground and putting themselves back in control.

Citizen Erased could well be one of my top 5 songs ever.

The whole album is epic. Even by track 3, Space Dementia, you know this album is going to be bigger than you could have imagined, and by the time Micro Cuts draw to a close, you'll be in a Muse induced trance. Megalomania closes the album, and I only have one word: Organs.

From start to finish this album will be a journey and when you come out of the other side, you will forever hold a passport to Muse's world, in the form of this record.

Absolutely 100% fantastic

 How can I put this? Wooohaaaagghhh!!! Screeaggghhhhhh!!!

This album is so good and so loud (mostly). The riffs are as brilliant as you'd expect and a great variety of styles from each song.
The central song on the album, 'Citizen Erased' is a fan favourite and switches from pounding drums, heavy bass and an electric guitar, Bellamy's soaring vocals, and suddenly collapses into silence and calm singing, gentle piano playing...and then bursts into a thundering crescending chorus of battering drums, even heavier bass and electric guitars and impassioned singing before the tragic sounding finale.
The first seven songs are all classics' in my opinion with some, 'Micro Cuts' and 'New Born' verging on the psychotic, but sound oh so liberating. 'Space Dementia' is a heavy space rock opera, and as strange as the song sounds it's immense.
The last four songs seem a bit tame to the others but this is a really brilliant album nonetheless.

 Best Album...
