That song is sheer brilliance. I love it.

I like Arcade Fire but I wouldn't put Funeral in my top albums of the decade list.

Absolution is amazing but I think it's a bit too long and it has 2/3 really weak tracks. Origin of symmetry is just so... powerful. And Citizen Erased may just be my favourite song of the decade...
Citizen Erased is definitely one of their best songs

but Absolution has my favourite Muse song ever, Hysteria, as well as Time is Running Out, Sing for Absolution, The Small Print, Thoughts of a Dying Athiest, Butterflies and Hurricanes, Stockholm Syndrome...

all Muse albums have a few songs that don't quite measure up imo, but I find myself listening to tracks from Absolution a lot more than Origin of Symmetry

How about the vastly underrated Endlessly and Falling Away With You?

But yeah, Origin is a great album, but I love Absolution more.

it has maybe 3 good songs.

Stand Inside Your Love (a SP classic)
Try, Try, Try (their 3rd attempt at 1979)
and The Everlasting Gaze (alright)

Just about anybody will tell you that, at the very least, Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie are the best Pumpkins records, and I personally would also rank Adore as one of their very best.

My favorite Pumpkins album is either Siamese Dream or Adore.

Mellon Collie is pretty good, but I've never been able to listen to that monster all the way through.

Have you heard Machina II?

Yep.

Been a Pumpkins fan since 1991.
