Muse - The Resistance (2xLP Vinyl)

  • Sale
  • Regular price $29.72
Tax included.


The Resistance is the first Muse album since the critically acclaimed, triple platinum selling Black Holes and Revelations that spawned five top 20 singles, was nominated for a plethora of awards, including the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, and concluded with two sold out nights at the newly opened Wembley Stadium. It was recorded in Northern Italy, produced by the band themselves and mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent. In terms of sound and sonic vision The Resistance is their most ambitious long-player yet, which is clearly saying something. They have blown up the robo-funk/monster riff/stadium space rock sound of Black Holes... and widened their viewfinder even further to take in an even greater horizon of sound.

 


I like to hear these days a mainstream band playing an orchestral epic and progressive song like United States of Eurasia. This is just a funny homage to Queen, as Dream Theater did in Fatal Tragedy (Scenes from a Memory), but the rest is far away from what May & Mercury did in their golden era. Resistance and Undisclosed Desires -I can't take out theses chorus lines from my brain- make look stupid and ugly any indie song that you hear today in the damned MTV. And the most important thing is they still walk through the rock path and doesn't touch the minimalism (and sometimes very boring) Radiohead's proposal. A special mention to Dominic Howard, the best rock drummer in UK. And the most important thing: Bellamy forget his falsetto tricks, maybe one of the key points in the general improvement in the band's sound.
