Several killer songs but this is not the Muse I love. Straightforward pop rock/alt rock, not nearly as interesting as OOS

Muse's debut album is killer through the first 7 songs. Then it literally sucks the rest of the way.

It's alternative rock through and through and doesn't get the respect it deserves.

Title track and Sunburn are standout tracks.

Really any of the first seven songs are winners.

I place Showbiz 4th behind Absolution, 2nd Law, and Black Holes

From Space-Dementia 08/11/2015 18:12
This is a great debut. People overlook it because the band hadn't really found their sound yet, but it has some of their best work. Feels sort of like a more straightforward rock version of Radiohead.
Best tracks: Showbiz, Muscle Museum, Sunburn, Cave
Worst track: Escape
