Your New Muse Song of the Week

Muse – United States of Eurasia (+ Collateral Damage)

So 1:18 is pretty ridiculous. And then what starts at 3:20 seems to be a bad attempt at an a cappella section. I thought “Knights of Cydonia” would be as far as Muse would go when it comes to aping Queen. And then that piano coda is just a Chopin piece. I like the song well enough, but an original piano part would be nice, rather than just ripping  a classical piece of music — no matter how great said classical piece is. They are definitely getting progressively more ridiculous, though, that’s for sure. I can’t imagine how all over the map the last three tracks — which apparently comprise one song — will be on the new album.

I don’t think I’ve posted on here that The Resistance will be released September 14th. The tracklist, courtesy of Wikipedia:

1. “Uprising”
2. “Resistance”
3. “Undisclosed Desires”
4. “United States of Eurasia/Collateral Damage”
5. “Guiding Light”
6. “Unnatural Selection”
7. “MK Ultra”
8. “I Belong to You/Mon Cœur S’ouvre à ta Voix”
9. “Exogenesis: Symphony Part I (Overture)”
10. “Exogenesis: Symphony Part II (Cross Pollination)”
11. “Exogenesis: Symphony Part III (Redemption)”

Needless to say, I’m looking forward to it.
