Which Muse album is better...Absolution or Black Holes?

Too close to call for me...both incredible albums...Black Holes seems a bit more angry with a song like Assassin, yet also has some optimism with Invincible. Knights of Cydonia is ridiculous, heavily influenced by like nine other bands, and yet is still asskicking.
On the other hand, Absolution has Stockholm and Hysteria, two of my favorite songs of all time.

I haven't heard all of Absolution and even then it is a close call!

Absolution has Time is... (best RH impression ever?), Hysteria, Stockholm Syndrome (fucking kickass ), Apocalypse Please ( ), Butterflies.. (progtastic!) and Thoughts.. Others I haven't heard.

BH&R has Starlight (best Muse song ever?), Problematique, Supermassive, Invincible, City of Delusion, Knights Of Cydonia, Assassin.....

yeah, maybe BH&R by a smidge.

Muse

Personally I like Black Holes and Revelations better. Quite a bit better to be honest. I think it rocks harder but at the same time has a better groove to it. It's kick ass but in an odd way danceable at the same same time.

Starlight, Supermassive black hole, Exo-Politics, Hoodoo, Invincible, Kinghts..... wow! Without trying to over exagerate this might be one of the top 5 albums of the decade so far. Just my opinion though.

I prefer black holes and revelations .... I think its their most "complete" album from start to finish

"take a bow" is

"map of the problematique"

'exo politics" is

"knights of Cydonia" is x100


and "soldiers poem" is I can't get enough of those backing vocals

Negative. Not even close.

Anyway, I've actually been thinking about it for a couple of weeks and I just can't decide. I honestly love both of them equally. They've both got loads of solid songs.

Absolution is the more solid album for me, so it wins.

But Black Holes was close to winning for the virtue of having Knights of Cydonia.

City of Delusion is also killer.

Okay... I refrain from voting.
