Muse fans’ reaction to ‘United States Of Eurasia’ was mixed, tending towards the non-plussed – comments on the NME blog ranged from “Reassuringly bonkers” to “RIP Matt Bellamy’s dignity”.

There’s likely to be less gnashing of teeth over ‘Uprising’ – the opening track from Muse’s fifth album ‘The Resistance’, due in September – since it’s more direct, riff-based and, well, Muse-like, featuring a sly nod to the theremin-boosted ‘Doctor Who’ theme.
