For days now I have been spending as much time as possible in my room.  No, I wasn’t sent there for sassing off to Tac (I wish), it is just where the best speakers are connected to the computer.  Muse was so kind and has been streaming their new album “The Resistance” from their site before it was released today.

“The Resistance” is brilliant and gorgeous and hard and symphonic and I am so happy to love Muse as much as I do right now.  The first day that I realized I could stream the entire album, I “finished my chores” and went straight to my room.  This was a wonderful day.  I had an art project to work on, and I sat up there and was totally carried away in the music.

Matthew Bellamy‘s voice is so driven and beautiful, he hits amazing notes and he amazes me.   The music, the instruments, piano, is always phenomenal coming from Muse.  The last 3 songs on this album are breathtaking symphonies.  This is not to say that the rest of the album isn’t spectacular also, because it is.

If I have to claim a favorite, it would most likely be “I Belong To You (+Mon Coeur S’ouvre A Ta Voix).”

I was reading the book “Catching Fire” last week, and as I was listening to this album with the book still fresh in my mind I realized that the songs “Resistance” and “United States of Eurasia” are perfect “soundtrack” songs.   The person most likely that I know to have read the book and heard the songs is Amber K, so Amber let me know what you think about that.

I’m a reeeaallly happy kid right now :)

  1. Yes, yes, and yes! I can’t stop listening to this album either. How did you know that a friend just lent me The Hunger Games and Catching Fire? I finished them right before the release of the album. Since I had recently finished 1984, I felt both had similar political ideas. It’s too much fun to hear the Muse songs collectively embrace these ideas with the talent of Matt Bellamy. I will find a way to attend their concert – if I bring Larry we could meet you and Tac and you can feel like your old BSU/concert days!
