    I just stumbled acroos the 2nd Muse cd 'Origin of Symmetry' and it's reblown my mind. This was the album that drew me away from being a classical guitarist. The first Muse effort has some brilliant songs on it, as does Absolution but neither felt like consistently great albums. The first they were finding their feet and the third was starting to walk down the road of pretentious dreary rock which is where they have now gone. But man what a spectacular album Origin is. To this day I still feel influenced by it in the way I use clean sections.
    Anyone else love this record?

    PS Space Dimentia has to be one of the most evil songs ever written.

    Yes yes yes yes yes. Origin of Symmetry is the first Muse album I ever got and the only one I've kept. Everything afterwards has been nothing but Bellamy perusing his own arsehole, and Showbiz just never really did it for me. OoS, on the other hand, is start to finish a badass record.
