Black Holes and Revelations still has that shiny and new quality to it. This poll would have more honest results around March 2007.

Starlight and black holes ..... are 2 of the most annoying singles of this year so far in my opinion.

The poll would also be more honest if we weren't on a U2 forum.

Black Holes and Revelations

I haven't listened to HTDAAB (or much of any U2 for that matter) in over 9 months so I vote Muse.

I listened to Black Holes more in the first month after its release than I've listened to HTDAAB in 2 years, and I'm still listening to BH.

I think it's Muse's most accomplished record. I thought Absolution was hard to beat but the other day I listened to OOS, Absolution and Black Holes back-to-back and what I like about Black Holes as a whole is that it's not about Matt's vocals. On Absolution there is so much emphasis on his belting vocals that compared with Black Holes it almost sounds like he's showing off. I like how Black Holes is subtle yet rocks out like crazy at the same time. There's more confidence, it's more about the music than showing off his voice or guitar skills, but without diminishing the brilliance of either. Or something like that.

Me too.

I went for Black Holes & Revelations, maybe because I haven't heard all the songs as many times as those on HTDAAB (especially the singles, which were played to death)...

ATM I'd prefer to listen to Muse than U2 anyway.

Muse =

Muse's music (and this album) is no big deal, there's nothing really new and special about it.
How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb is U2's best album.
No more justifications needed.

Well, one thing is for sure: I can stand listening to Bono's voice for hours, but the voice of that guy from Muse starts to annoy me after 15 minutes or something.

Neither evolve much from the previous album and both have some dodgy lyrics...a tie.

I love HTDAAB, but BHaR is better.

like xavi said, Knights of Cydonia alone is amazing.

I made a montage about WWII, Nazis, and the Atomic Bomb using that song in my TV Production class, I'll post it here when I get it on YouTube.

If these would have both come out on the same day, the score would be 23-3 HTDAAB.
