The Resistance

17 09 2009

I have been listening to The Resistance by Muse, and its a grower, I am beginning to like it a lot.  However, there is so much of it that sounds like other things, at times its disconcerting.  One part sounds like We are the champions by Queen.  One song sounds like Rufus Wainright.  The first bars of the album sounds like the 80’s BBC Snooker coverage.

On the other hand, so much of the album sounds so unlike other bands its worthwhile putting up with the other bits.  Matt Bellamys piano playing is outstanding, and his voice is great too.  I just need a long drive so that I can listen to the album as a whole without being disturbed. 

So at the moemnt I do like it, and I can’t see that changing.
