Muse is one of the most frustrating bands of all time precisely because of how good this album was. Too bad.

Though Muse's reputation has been soured by a glut of mediocre albums, Origin of Symmetry still holds up as one of the 20th century's most abrasive, bombastic, and thoroughly enjoyable albums. This is Muse at their creative peak, from the crunching bounce of Hyper Music to the hauntingly barren Screenager.

Muse's sophomore effort still holds up as one of the finest, progressive rock albums of the 21st century. I think it's impressive to see them jump from an innocent, alt-rock album to this epic, space rock journey.

Favourite tracks: New Born, Space Dementia, Citizen Erased

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.
