Review Expert : Rolling Stone (p.103) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "Songs like the industrial-flavored 'Uprising' prove again that Muse know how to whip up an almighty roar." Entertainment Weekly (p.129) - "The album's best track, 'Uprising,' is a simple slice of glam rock..." -- Grade: B Uncut - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[O]n RESISTANCE, Muse prove that they could be the last in a line of great British rock eccentrics, a trio of mad professors who should be cherished." Billboard (p.57) - "The three-part rock symphony 'Exogenesis' closes the album, combining elements of piano and the band's dramatic flair." Q (Magazine) (p.102) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]heir new adventures in sci-fi hi-fi are, for the most part, hugely impressive. 'Uprising' is a brilliantly addictive opener..." Clash (Magazine) - "From album opener 'Uprising,' a glitter band stomp spliced with the Dr. Who theme, it's classic Muse, Bellamy's voice a thing of wonder as always."
Misc Note : Personnel: Matthew Bellamy (vocals, guitar, keyboards, synthesizer, programming); Chris Wolstenholme (vocals); Edoardo de Angelis (violin); Enrico Gabrielli (bass clarinet); Dominic Howard (synthesizer, drums, percussion, programming); Paul Reeve (sound effects). Audio Mixer: Mark "Spike" Stent. Photographer: Danny Clinch. With its titanic guitar solos, symphonic suites, and multi-layered melodies, Muse's fifth album operates under the assumption that bigger is better. This is the very definition of a super-sized album, an album that takes its cues from Queen, its lyrics from science fiction novels, and its delivery from rock opera. It's also the first time that Muse has truly sounded like Muse, as few bands since Queen have so readily explored the intersection of bombast and extravagance. THE RESISTANCE is most certainly extravagant -- there are snatches of classical piano entwined throughout, not to mention bilingual lyrics, concert hall percussion, coronet solos, and song titles like "Exogenesis: Symphony, Pt. 2 (Cross-Pollination)" -- but it's also quite beautiful, capable of moving between prog rock choruses and excerpts from Chopin's "Nocturne in E Flat Major" within the same song. Presiding over the mix is frontman Matthew Bellamy, a man who seemingly aspires to be both Brian May and Freddie Mercury. He plays guitar, pounds the piano, and composes the album's orchestral parts, but his strongest asset is his voice, a sky-scraping tenor dripping with so much emotion that it's almost lewd. He croons, whispers, annunciates, and belts with confidence, a combination that makes him one of England's most dazzling singers in recent memory. And since a virtual mountain of voices is better than a single voice (remember: bigger is better), Bellamy also multi-tracks himself, creating towering stacks of harmonies during songs like "Resistance," "Undisclosed Desires," and the colossal "United States of Eurasia (+Collateral Damage)."
