If you could re-order/re-track a Muse album, how would you do it?


Recommended Posts

The songs are good but the album suffers from poor ordering imo. :LOL:

I think the album need to start strong. As it is the heavy section (US + MKU) comes too late so that most people were already disappointed at that point. Personnally I find it easier to appreciate new stuff like UD if I got my dose of heavy songs beforehand (hence moving MK Ultra towards the beginning).

And I Belong To You + Exogenesis in a row is too much. So I think the former should be moved up too, and Resistance has everything it takes to be the semi-final song on the album (the nice outro into Exogenesis, in particular).

Best Muse album? (I wish I found a place for Starlight but I feel like Starlight + Easily would be too much and I'd rather prioritise the latter)

Doesn't seem too bad flow-wise for me. That's just based on me looking at that list of songs though.


I do prefer it when the album has two sides though. KoC, Hoodoo, CoD, Assassin and in this case Crying Shame belong together imo, while Starlight, TaB, Glorious, SMBH and MOTP are the electronic rock side.
