There was a literal uprising when Muse fans got a listen to the undeniably Queen-y “United States Of Eurasia,” which to be fair, successfully distracted people from the song’s name. The collection’s opener and first single (and protest song) “Uprising” is a darker synth-lined track with stadium-sized “hey hey” group chants. Fans will be fans again. In Matthew Bellamy’s words, it resembles “a heavy-rock take on Goldfrapp.” Also in Bellamy’s words, “they will not control us.” OK! Try and resist The Resistance’s album art while you take a listen.
Those occasional high-pitched guitar/vocal squeals have something very much like this about them.
