It's the Muse album that has the slightly louder and more abrasive songs than the other Muse albums! Wherein they ruin a perfectly good Nina Simone standard in "Feeling Good" and do some other stuff with pop rock that once got compared to Radiohead but would probably actually just get remixed by Moby.
9/10 Matt Sanchez Customer review, 9th November 2016
I'll say it from the start, this is one of my top 20 albums of all time. I was never a fan of Muse before this album was released and I first heard it at a friends house, and it left me gobsmacked at the amount of emotion and raw energy pulsing throughout the veins of this remarkable album, a feat that Muse have never been able to muster up again bar the two excellent singles ('Dead Star' and 'Stockholm Syndrome') that came after the release of this record. We have anger, resentment, fear, self loathing and epic megalomania all over this record. A great emotional roller coaster that's as honest as it is rocking!
9/10 Jack Customer review, 3rd February 2016
I think I'm gonna go straight ahead and say this is will always be Muse at the top of their game. Despite Absolution having a more unified sound and Blackholes and Revelations possessing a richer palette of styles, Origins of Symmetry is a remarkable power house of an album. No Muse album really has every song being a spectacle; every track demands attention, whether it's a thundering riff, Matt Bellamy's operatic shrieks or lyrics that herald the end of days. Their mystique has faded now but it is still very much immersed in this album.
