Origin of Symmetry is the second studio album by British rock band Muse. With the 2001 release, Muse made ​​the final breakthrough.


Compared to the previous Showbiz, the band was willing to experiment. In addition, Bellamy sat at his singing a falsetto more often.


The album was released worldwide on 18 June 2001, but not in the United States. The record company Maverick Records had doubts about Bellamy's voice. Since they did not consider this for radio friendly, she was skeptical about the success of the album. Then, the band parted ways from the company, the album was released only on 20 September 2005 in the USA.

The food company Nestlé originally wanted the title Feeling Good from which premiered in 1965 musical The Roar of the Greasepaint - The Smell of the Crowd benefit for an advertising campaign for coffee. Although Muse refused to use, the Group still under painted his commercials with the song. Then, the band moved to court and the group was sentenced to £ 500,000 penalty. The total was partly donated to Oxfam and partly charitable associations from around Devon.
