I have to admit, I wasn’t looking forward to the new Muse album much after hearing the first single off it. Uprising didn’t really do anything for me. It was the Muse we’d come to expect, but it just had no kick to it or anything to make it stand out. Then I heard another song off the album: Undisclosed Desires.

Wow. Blown away! This is Muse, but this is different. More grown up and more musical. Just better Muse. I’m a big fan of Muse, I like a lot of their stuff, and they’re a great band to see live. This song is just so interesting, it’s so laid back compared to what we know of Muse. The composition is so simple, which is very refreshing to hear from Muse who usually stick to the tried and tested big, epic tunes.

I’m interested now to hear the rest of the album and definitely think I’ll be buying myself a copy. For those cave dwellers, the album is called The Resistance (awesome name, it oozes Muse) and is out as of today.
