I would actually go so far as to say they are both crap but Eurasia was more interesting. This has both crap lyrics AND boring music. Eurasia was crap lyrics and crap, but at least interesting, music. Dear me, I don't say crap this often. And not usually about Muse, who I did really quite like until this point. Roisin, you selling those tickets now then? ;-)
Just pre-ordered the In Rainbows-style discbox version of The Resistance (I'm a Muse completist and couldn't pass up the chance of such a cool Ltd Edition package) and am sixty squids lighter, beating my previous biggest spend on an album by 50%!
Stupidity, or just merely a show of solidarity for one of my favourite ever bands? I guess the answer will depend on whether the rest of the album is filled with Eurasia's (stupidity) or Uprisings (solidarity: screw you naysayers, it's a choon!). Roll on September 14th...
Doubtless I'm somehow behind the times on this and the whole album and its grandmother has already been leaked for 2 months, but I've just listened to the full version of Undisclosed Desires now that it has been put up for streaming on the Muse website. I really liked it: good melody, and some interesting rhythms/beats and production. Guessing that - given that I seem to be in a minority camp in liking Uprising - a fair few might find it a bit too 'pop' (which is totally fair enough), but it's another one in the Good tally chart for me, bringing my running total of full-version songs that I've heard to a 2:1 ratio:

I really don't like this album, though the title track is annoyingly catchy I have to confess. But why have Muse gone and packed in doing everything that they're good at- the good, solid rock and big riffs that made them what they are? I know music has to progress and all but really, I think Bellamy might be loosing the plot somewhat here...it's like an album full of Knights of Cydonia, without the heavy bit!
