Muse recently came out with their fifth album The Resistance. While they have always had a bit of an Arena rock sound this new album has back up singing that makes me feel like I’m listening to old Queen in a fabulous new way. This album is full of falsetto and vibratto that you associate and love when it comes to lead singer Matthew Bellamy. I think growing as a band is normal and experimenting with new techniques and sounds is exactly what this band is doing. The small changes to their sound are fun and if you take a listen to their first album Showbiz it’s fun to hear how the band has changed in some aspects but also how they haven’t strayed too far from their roots, keeping the fans from way back when like myself happy but surprised.
Take a listen to them and tell me what you think.
