I know in my list of Muse albums ranked I put this above Showbiz, but I’ve listened to it since and it’s definitely my least favourite album of theirs. It’s not really an official album though, so I’ll let them off. How would I rank the songs?
I made a few other Muse lists below:
10 – Forced In
A terrible way to start the album. I can see what they’re trying to do, but “Forced In” just sounds like a mess of sounds, and it does little to convince anyone to keep listening.
9 – Shine (Acoustic)
A sort of nothing track that doesn’t add to the album whatsoever.
8 – The Gallery
It’s a bit strange that I like this track more than the previous two, but I kinda dig the strange sounds on this. It’s still not the best, but I’m OK with this as a filler / instrumental track.
7 – Nature_1
I love the acoustic guitar work on this, but other than that there aren’t too many memorable aspects to this.
6 – Shrinking Universe
I’d consider this to be an absolute bear minimum Muse song, and I’m glad it didn’t make it onto an official album. It’s not bad, but I know they can do better.
5 – Ashamed
Not really a proper track on it’s own, but it’s one of the tracks that the band sometimes play as a sort of extended outro to some songs, and so I kind of have a soft spot for it.
4 – Yes Please
Almost identical to Ashamed in terms of being an outro track, but this one has a bit more going for it.
3 – Map of Your Head
A lovely little song, but I can’t really give it more credit than that.
2 – Recess
This is a weird song – I like it quite a bit, and I would have been completely OK if it was a main album track. Very underrated on the whole, but not the most underrated on the album …
1 – Hyper Chondriac Music
This is a very hit-or-miss song in the Muse fandom, but I absolutely adore this and consider it to be one of their most underrated tracks.
An alternate version to “Hyper Music” that packs more of an emotional punch, there are days when I actually prefer this version to the original. An amazing track that I’d highly recommend.
Aaaaaaand that’s my list. We’ll be back on track with the main albums, and next is the fantastic “Absolution”. Until then, check out some of my latest posts:
I don’t think it’s an over-exaggeration to say that “Super Mario Galaxy” is one the greatest games ever made. It will certainly always hold a special place in my heart, and I had a chance recently to revisit these amazingly nostalgic galaxies. How would I rank them all? By the way, I’m not going toContinue reading “Super Mario Galaxy – Every Single Galaxy Ranked”
I really like the Star Wars cinematic universe – sure, they tend to pump out more stinkers than all-time classics, but you can’t deny the sheer spectacle and pure fun of the films. When I heard they were making a TV show in the same universe, I was sceptical. So much so, in fact, thatContinue reading ““The Mandalorian” – All 16 Episodes Ranked”
I don’t think this album would be particularly high on anybody’s rankings, but I’ve always had a kind of soft spot for it. Those who hated the mainstream appeal of “Let’s Dance” were disappointed even further by “Tonight”, but I can’t help but love some of the groovy tracks on it.
