    The 80's Called, They Want Freddie Mercury Back.

    This is a good thing. My immediate thought after listening to this album was that they had somehow cloned Freddie Mercury, gave him a crash course in modern music technology and recent political history, gave him a symphony orchestra and a record deal and said 'Go nuts'. This album is fantastically detailed, full of musical twists and turns and complex melodies. The vocals, as always from Muse, are well thought out and epically moving. The multi-part vocal melodies are understated in places, major in places and would have made Queen proud. In fact, I have only one negative thing to say about the album; track three, 'Undisclosed Desires'. I'm pretty sure it wasn't their fault, though, since it sounds like they got mugged by a boy band on this single track. Skip it.

    Otherwise, there is no reason you should not be out buying this album.

    My New Favorite Musicians/Band...

    I am finding it difficult to write a review about this CD, mostly because I don't think I will be able to convey to someone just how unique and different this CD is. I Bought this CD because I liked the song "Uprising." Up until hearing that song I had never heard of Muse; OMG, have I been missing out on some unbelievably great music. Too my suprise,I absolutely love the entire CD. The lead vocalist is so intensely passionate about what he is singing; the musicians are unbelievably talented, intertwined with the classical music of the orchestra, make for an unforgettable CD. This is not just another prefabricated band, these guys are truly remarkable and talented musicians. I would love to see them live, but I see they are not scheduled for South Florida, you guys could probably use a tan, make room on your tour dates for South Florida. Johnna

    A must for any music lover! (and those who fight for what they love)

    The amazing thing about Muse is their ability to create in multiple genres while sticking to their unique sound. "The Resistance" embodies this while telling a tale of love amid global chaos. The album moves almost seamlessly from the pounding anthem "Uprising" to the powerful classically inspired "Exogenesis Symphony". Drawing influence from 1984 and paying direct homage to Queen and Chopin there's no denying this album is epic.

    this is a great work of art!

    I really enjoy listening to Muse and this album just makes me love them even more. I love the variety of instruments that this band uses. I think that's why Muse is my #1 favorite of alternative music. So would love to see them live. Muse is spectacular!
