New Music Tuesday: Muse

MuseThe Resistance is the most recent installment from this hard-hitting, melodic alt-rock power group and they are definitely living up to their name.  The unique mix of beat-heavy rock with classical and traditional music overtones offers a sound that only Muse can produce and only Muse can pull off.  This album is a little different than its predecessors in that it lends itself more to classical music, even going so far as to dedicate the final three tracks of the album to a rock symphony labeled “Exogenesis”.  But don’t let this scare you off.  This distinctive sound is what separates Muse from other rock bands.  And “Bohemian Rhapsody” was supposed to be part of a musical.  Mull that over and tell me it’s not ok to incorporate classical sounds into rock.  Yeah, that’s what I thought.

It’s not too often you’re able to listen to an album over and over again and always find something new.  The Resistance takes you on a musical roller coaster giving you a little bit of everything so you end up in a completely different place than where you started.  And I wouldn’t want it any other way.  Check out their single “Uprising” below.  Oh, and did I mention explosions, fire and ridiculously angry teddy bears?

Are you digging Muse? Than you’ll love JET!
