Muse The Resistance 2009 Review by Time_Signature

Prog-Related Rock
I've never understood the hype around Muse among progressive music fans. Having heard this album, however, I do appreciate the fact the Muse's music is quality alternative rock containing some progressive elements. I have yet to join the hype, but I do like this album, which has a very retro feel to it while still looking forward, sounding most of all like the offspring of Queen and 80s U2 in space (which, I must admit, does make me think "Haven't I heard this before?", every now and then?). The main strength of this album, I think, is combination of athmospheric synthesizers, catchy melodies, and melancholic vocals which has a strange drawing effect upon the listener.
