Anyone besides Kassidy and me listen to Muse here?
Anyways, their new album "The Resistance" is out and I've been hooked on it for a few days now. Honestly I think its my favorite album by them.
The whole album definitely has a Muse feel to it, but a few of them also remind me of Queen, kind of that big rock opera type feel to them.
Also I like the classical music mixed into some of the songs. Though I think the end of United States of Eurasia is technically another song called Collateral Damage? Not sure.
I think my favorite songs are the first three. Hard to pick though.
Uprising really feels like Muse, dunno what else to say, it's a really solid track.
Both Uprising and Resistance really have a spacey feel to them, seems to be a recurring theme in Muse. XD
Resistance starts out kind of slow, but once it builds up it's really neat. The singing (It could be wrong, could be wrong) really reminds me of Queen. XD
Undisclosed Desires is probably my favorite song on the album. I dunno what to make of it, sounds completely different from other Muse stuff, but at the same time it's not really unexpected or out of their style. Has a really nice beat to it.
United States of Eurasia reminds me a lot of Knights of Cydonia, I might actually prefer it over it, and the ending Collateral Damage part is a nice kind of intermission if you're listening to the whole album straight through.
Unnatural Selection and MK Ultra are pretty good, nothing that really stands out about them to me, but they're definitely solid Muse songs. It could be that I've been listening to the first three tracks the most, might need to give these ones more of a chance. XD
I Belong to You/French Words is another song I really like, is it just me or are there a ton of inside references going on in the lyrics in this song?
The last three songs go together, they're all called Exogenesis they just have a colon and some more words for the rest of their name. These ones mix in the classical music a lot, and it's really neat. Personal favorite out of the three is the final one, Redemption.
These three all go classical music, good old Muse, more classical music. Really fun.
Anyways, there is my stupid review. I know jack all about music, so it's probably not worth much, but I'd definitely recomend this album for at least one listen through to anyone.
Muse is a kind of different band, it seems people either love them or find them too cheesy.
