Muse Joins The Resistance

Muse has made another album masterpiece with The Resistance, their fifth studio album released on September 15 in the United States. The record brings us influences that range from Queen to Depeche Mode. The Resistance is the first album produced by the band itself. The LP feels very theatrical, with the remarkable vocalizations that Matt Bellamy offers to the songs. It’s something like Showbiz, very smoothly arranged with the progressive rock infusion of the band.

Ok, let’s all talk about Muse. This is a great British alternative band. They tend to be big on their album productions, such as 1999’s Showbiz. One thing I hate of Muse fans is the epic fails of Twilight’s Fan wannabes. Since the author of that book stated that Muse was her favorite band, suddenly every Emo girl went running to the stores to buy their albums. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, awesome for Muse, but for the real Muse fans this may be kind of annoying. The music expertise the band offers on their album may not be completely appreciated by Twilight Fans as for people who actually hear their music for the love of it. They evolved their punk roots to something more melodic. In The Resistance you can sense the deepness of the vocals in a unique fashion, accompanied with typical Muse lyricism such as society conspiracies and inner demons.

You got to love the track United States of Eurasia; in it you can hear a composition reminiscent to Queen. The use of piano and violins on the background and the harmonious dramatic vocals mixed with the guitar play evokes subtly Bohemian Rhapsody. Muse induces us into a voyage of a very calmed mix between classical music and rock. MK Ultra has the same vibe of the Absolution album, playing amid guitar riffs with very hard electronic resonance. On I Belong to You/Mon Cœur S'ouvre à ta Voix they make a very lovely representation of the classical story of the Samson and Delilah Opera along with personal love life references. The bonding of a cabaret-ish clarinet solo with the beautiful lyrics on his portray of love to a woman makes this song unforgettable. This album teems with stunning stories and rhythms. The album is a must for those Muse fans that follow the band faithfully since their roots. For them and those new to the band, we dare you to resist it.
