…Neither an exhaustive box set nor a greatest-hits collection, Anthology is more like mixtape personally compiled by the band, making a very characteristically Muses argument for the personal over the canonical, for a song’s appeal as something that’s more subjective than objective. Though it eschews chronology and omits some of their most popular tracks (there’s only one song on here from 1991’s The Real Ramona– and it’s the deep cut “Two Step”), Anthology is still an accessible entry point to the band’s formidably deep catalogue– for the already initiated, it’s a relatively taut refresher.
