Four stars.

 

Good points - It's a fantastic debut album, and it showed promise for the future. Vocals are utterly amazing.

 

Bad points - I think the lyrics are a bit angsty, however the music fit well with all of the lyrics.

 

Favourite tracks - Showbiz, Falling Down, Escape, Fillip, Unintended, Muscle Museum, Uno, Sunburn

 

Least favourite tracks - My least favourite is Overdue. It's good, but it's the one song I don't enjoy as much as all of the others.

 

Best moments - Of course, the Showbiz scream! The build up to that is amazing. Cave chorus, Fillip's catchiness, " I'll take back all the things that I said/I didn't realise I was talking to the living dead" - Escape

 

Sunburn - 10

Muscle Museum - 10

Fillip - 9

Falling Down - 8

Cave - 9

Showbiz - 10

Unintended - 9

Uno - 8

Sober - 7

Escape - 9

Overdue - 7

Hate This & I'll Love You - 8

An album with some incredible, mind-blowing songs on it. Sunburn gets me every time I listen to it, Showbiz is so tightly wound and then just explodes-it's amazing. Matt's voice is so, so beautiful throughout the album and so wrought with emotion, I especially love it on Hate This..., Sunburn, and Falling Down.

 

I'm not a big fan of Sober, it gets on my nerves. I love parts of Filip but dislike other bits. Actually, that's the way it is with this album; when I don't like a track very much it's because I only dislike parts of it, not it as a whole. That's why I prefer Showbiz to The Resistance and BHAR, where I dislike entire songs and just don't listen to them.

 

So I'd give Showbiz 8.5 / 10 overall. Oh, and one last thing-not enough bass! ;)

I gave it 3/5 rating it against Muse's other works.

 

Good things about the album

An incredibly strong and unique start. I also think this is the most difficult album to choose one definite favourite song from.

 

Bad things about the album

I don't think Showbiz was particularly ordered well in terms of its tracks. Too strong a first half, the second half is a letdown in comparison.

 

Best track

If I absolutely had to pick one, it would be Falling Down, absolutely beautiful track, very underrated. Followed closely by Muscle Museum and Cave.

 

Worst track

Overdue

 

Favourite moment

Difficult to argue with Matt's Showbiz-finale screams.

 

 

Again, ratings based by comparing all of Muse's songs.

 

Sunburn - 7/10

Muscle Museum - 9/10

Fillip - 7/10

Falling Down - 9.5/10

Cave - 9/10

Showbiz - 8.5/10

Unintended - 8.5/10

Uno - 6/10

Sober - 5.5/10

Escape - 6/10

Overdue - 5/10

Hate This and I'll Love You - 5.5/10

Spiral Static - 5.5/10

There are some really great songs on this album but overall it's too inconsistent. Muscle Museum, Cave and Sunburn are some of the best songs Muse have ever made but Overdue might be the worst
