Definition of symmetry. 4 : the property of remaining invariant under certain changes (as of orientation in space, of the sign of the electric charge, of parity, or of the direction of time flow) —used of physical phenomena and of equations describing them.
“Origin of Symmetry” by Muse took me a few listens to see how fun and experimental this album really is. This album was released in 2001 and this is Muse’s sophomore effort. I don’t have their debut album yet so I can’t say if “Origin of Symmetry” is stronger or weaker than “Showbiz”.
Origin of Symmetry came first about through the changes Muse underwent during their intensive touring in promotion of Showbiz, with a lot of material written whilst touring. However, this album is more riff orientated and slightly darker than Showbiz, containing several songs which use piano or organ.
