The Resistance

The Times
'A rock frontman who bulk-buys Heinz beans in case of an apocalypse and whose bookshelf has at least one title by David Icke, isn’t a terribly enticing proposition on paper. But, of course, Matt Bellamy’s reluctance to brook any moderation in his world view is the very thing that makes his group so extraordinary. You needn’t spend too long in the company of Muse’s fifth album to realise as much. How the Teignmouth trio must have laughed, last time around, when critics said there was nowhere for them to go from here.'

Zane Lowe
"A beautifully recorded, strong, sweeping, fighting, uplifting, rocking, and inclusive record about love."
"sweeping collection of songs where classical and rock influences collide but never clash" and even going so far as saying the album is "a genuine modern masterpiece".
