T2L is a much much better album than TR. The band had so much more energy and that reflected on the songs as well, while TR was just bland as fuck for multiple reasons (Chris' alcoholism, Matt's personal issues) and it felt as if they recorded that album just because they had expectations to make another one. It's just "cool" to say Muse went downhill since Absolution, which is stupid.

anyway, no lies detected in your comment
