Muse, 'The Resistance' - Your Reaction

By NME Blog

Posted on 14 Sep 09


NME's Ben Patashnik reckons its "predictable in its insanity" and "conceptually impressive but musically all too familiar".

Uncut's John Lewis gives it four stars, although - somewhat confusingly - also says it's "hilarious, maddening, ridiculous and slightly shit".

Mojo only saw fit to write 100 words, but like most of the chin-stroking press, they're now firmly onside after years of sneering at Muse's unashamed grandiosity. They praise the album as "introspection realised on a gargantuan scale".

But how about you? You can listen to Muse's fifth album below, and post your own review as a comment.
