The Resistance Tracklist:
How well Muse blends classical music with rock is just beyond me. This is just an example of Muse’s pure, raw talent. These guys are literally the best! Best songs: Uprising: one of the best pump you up anthems of all time! Undisclosed Desires: not like anything Muse has ever done before and an awesome, catchy love song different from the rest. Exogenesis all parts: Simply beautiful! I Belong to You: very different especially with the French, or Latin, or whatever it is, but has an awesome beginning, middle, and end.
This was the Album that got me into them. Uprising was my roots man. I love the songs from Uprising to MK Ultra. After that, it’s just weird. I don’t like Belong to you or the Exogenesis. Those were the things that pulled it back for me.
This album ended up taking a bit (more like two years) to grown on me since I first heard it, but now, it’s hands-down one of my favorite albums. I especially love Exogenesis Symphony, MK Ultra, and Unnatural Selection, which are songs only Muse could’ve pulled off, really. Things I liked about the album: - Progression of tracks - Diversity of styles & genre blending - The cover art 🔥 - Departure from & similarities to previous albums - It had the best production of any Muse album (when it was released) Things I didn’t like about the album in, like, 2010 that I now appreciate: - United States of Eurasia is a really good song but really weird and kind of trite - Why did they end USE with Chopin?? - Matt singing in French on I Belong To You (which is an amazing song, btw...idk why I didn’t like it; his pronunciation is spot-on) tl;dr I love Muse.
This album is absolutely fantastic. I don't usually review music but I love Muse. The tracks all transition amazing. My personal favorite is United States of Eurasia. The orchestra sounds fantastic the strings are beautiful. The way the electric guitars fit in is amazing I am glad I spent money on this album
This masterpiece is one of those albums you have to listen to a few times before you understand it. Completely different feel and sound compared to Black Holes & Revelations (also AMAZING), but I loved it. Uprising and resistance are great radio songs, and I love hearing them occasionally, but what really shines are the less popular songs. United States of Eurasia and Unnatural Selection are personal favorites on this record, but it was so hard to just choose two. All of the songs on this album are extraordinary and magical; they transport you to another realm. My absolute favorite part of this record though is the Exogenesis Symphony series. This three part song is fascinating. The story it tells is insane and terrifying, but also beautiful and uplifting. I love this album so very much. It has a song for every mood, and is an absolute brilliant masterpiece!!!!
This is by far my favorite Muse album right now - I have been listening to it obsessively with the headphones in and the volume cranked up! Matt Bellamy's voice is beautiful, and the blend of rock, opera and classical is truly inspiring. Listen to it - you won't regret it!
The first muse album I ever heard, and I've loved them ever since. Favorite song is probably Unnatural Selection, I just love the whole heavy thing (I don't know music terms, I just point air drums in the areas I feel make the right air-noise). I feel like I Belong to You is highly underrated tho. 10/5 overall.
I've been listening to muse since I was 9 years old. And this is definitely my favorite album by them as a whole. It is so well put together and flows so well. The songs fit together perfectly yet all have a completely different sound. I would 100% recommend this album to a friend.
I remember hearing the song first time from the radio in the car with group of colleagues getting back from other side of the island, it was a long day, we were all very tired yet we had great times hearing awesome musics which put everybody in the mood
Hands down one of my favorite albums. The fusion of rock, orchestra, and electronic elements are incredible in a Globus-like fashion, and the topics covered in the lyrics are extremely important and poignant unlike so many other artists today.
This album is way better than given credit for. Here, have a track by track 1. Uprising- Simple and amazing bass oriented rock track 10/10 2. The Resistance- Wonderful with the ambient synths, piano and just tone of this alt rock track 10/10 3. Undisclosed Desires- No. Just no. It's not that I'm a "it needs to be heavy" nerd, it's just the fact that this song is irritating. 5/10 4. United States of Eurasia- Another stinker for me. This track has four parts. The parts are good individually. However, it feels like here they were mushed together, and really poorly done. 6/10 5. Guiding Light- This song is pretty freaking good. Chilling guitar solo, catchy song, one of Muse's happier sounding songs. 10/10 6. Unnatural Selection- Despite the preachiness of this song, it's got cool lyrics and a rock hard feel that makes you want to chant and shout and do stuff. 10/10 7. MK Ultra- It's pretty good, it's taken a while though it didn't have an immediate grabbing point, nice rock track 8/10 8. I Belong To You (Some French Crap I Don't Understand)- I love this song to death. It makes me want to dance as soon as it comes on, and it has a nice little slow part in the middle. I only wish it stopped after the slow part and didn't rehash the beginning 9/10 9, 10, 11. Exogenesis Symphony- Part 1 is really good when you can understand what he's saying. Part 2 is hard to get into but once you do it's really good. Part 3 is also a really good "hope" song just wished there was more singing. Nice way to end the album, get these songs 9.5/10 Overall 9/10
