  • Their best, hands down.
  • This is the first Muses album I ever heard, thanks to my local library, quite soon after its release. I instantly fell for it, and to me it remains a unique entry in their canon. All the players sound fantastic, but for me the highlight is all that angular guitar playing (especially on 'Buzz'), sweet little subtle splashes of sound (the barely audible piano finale of 'Ruthie's Knocking for example), some wonderful lyrics ('Mr. Bones' is beautiful), and for the first time since 'The Real Ramona', that sense of edgy, dark mystery is back. It's in the unsung moments of 'Ruthie's Knocking', all over 'Tango' and 'Limbo', and tempered with some really sweet (again) buzzing pop songs like 'The Field' and 'Serene'. I can never decide on a favourite Muses album, but this is definitely in my top three.
  • This album is far better than the credit it gets.
  • They sound like an imitation of themselves on this one.
  • One of the most under-appreciated albums of the 90s.

  • (400 characters is not enough) ...gs are great! Let's hope they all become streamable soon.
  • After I discovered Kristin Hersh, it became clear that I totally overlooked the Muses in years before. So I started going back through their albums, this one being the first required. For some reason I've always considered Limbo their most accessible work. It's still my favourite. Apart from the songs mentioned by vargas_girl there is ofcourse Shark and a great hidden track. But in fact all son
  • first off, there are way more than 2 tracks on this album; secondly, this is probably the most underated Muses album of all time. Every song on here is fucking great, especially 'Limbo,'Tar Kisses,' and 'Serene.' I truly hope someone else shouts out for this album. Its definitely a grower, but once it sinks in you'll have this in heavy rotation.
