The Resistance Album


About The Resistance

The Resistance is the fifth studio album by English rock band Muse. It was released on 11 September 2009 through the band's own Helium-3 imprint as well as Warner Bros. Records. Produced by the band and mixed by Mark Stent, the album was recorded from September 2008 to May 2009 at Studio Bellini in Lake Como, Italy. Musically, the record is similar to some of the band's previous material, mixing orchestral elements with rock and electronic music. The album also saw the band craft a three-part, 15-minute long symphony piece titled "Exogenesis". Lyrically, it is a concept record, as well as continuation of the themes from their previous records, being influenced by politics and more oppressive subjects. The Resistance received positive reviews from critics, who praised its concept, instrumentation, influences and Bellamy's vocals. The album was compared favourably to the works of Radiohead and Queen, although some critics found its material to be overblown and cliched. The album reached number one in 19 countries, and the top five in the United States and several others. It was later certified platinum in a number of countries, including the UK and US. The album was promoted with three commercial singles: "Uprising", "Undisclosed Desires", and "Resistance", with "Exogenesis: Symphony" receiving a Record Store Day vinyl release. The band also made a number of live appearances promoting the album, including The Resistance Tour. The record earned the band a Grammy Award for Best Rock Album in 2011
