I must admit I was once guilty on not disliking Muse. But this album is just shit. At least they don't sound like they are trying to be Radiohead anymore, in fact the music is so generally bad that all comparisons are uncalled for.

But it does get in such a way that at times you are nodding to it as if you were listening to some pretty fun prog-metal piece of crap. It is appropriate music for the soundtrack of Twilight for which it was used.

Really disappointing crap that should have no place on the list. Ridiculous.

Track Highlights

1. Supermassive Black Hole

Final Grade



From Wikipedia:

Pitchfork's Sam Ubl was amongst the most critical reviewers and gave the album a very poor 4.2 rating, citing the lack of progression the band had made in 4 albums, and their reliance on "tired sounds and genres, saying that Muse, "always loveably lame [...] managed to take a turn for the lamer."
