What To Make Of These New Muse Tracks
New Muse songs -- all the rage or just another excuse to bitch about them? You be the judge
Muse, everyone's favorite British rock band to love/super-safe pick as favorite band, have recently released two new tracks from their upcoming album The Resistance to a great fervor. People fawned over "United States of Eurasia" when it was released a few weeks ago -- some astute critics even noticed how much the track sounded like some odd Queen B-side from years ago. Yesterday saw the release of yet another track -- "Uprising." All Queen analogies aside, "Uprising" sounds like a Muse song -- as shocking/incredibly bold as that admission may be.
"Uprising" is banking on the success of Muse's 2006 album Black Holes and Revelations -- something that surprises me very little considering that album was a solid offering that helped put Muse's name into consideration as one of England's leading rock bands. Black Holes sounds like it was an absolute blast to record -- and when something like that is noticeable while listening to the album, then the band has to be doing at least something right.
