Muse's peak album. An album about the fear of the future. Truly a modern masterpiece.

Favorite songs: Bliss, Space Dementia, Plug In Baby, Citizen Erased, Micro Cuts, Darkshines, Megalomania.

A must-hear album, truly a modern musical masterpiece. From the stunning falsettos to the amazing bass lines this is a album everyone should hear.

It establishes a solid and unique take on the grandiose and dramatic side of Alt Rock right from the get-go. Yet, it rarely strays away from it's initially presented style. So, if you find their whiney, overly dramatic, "scream-in-your-face-for-attention" vibe annoying (which I think is more than possible), good luck. For me, the interest does dwindle and the flaws do begin to shine out as the album nears it's third act, but it ends rather satisfyingly.

Loud and awesome, Muse's best album if you ask me. I have listened to this album many times and not one time have a gotten bored, although I do think the first half of the album is much better than the second half.

Best track: Citizen Erased
Worst track: Dark Shines
