4 stars Muse's fifth release is arguably their strongest. The music draws from an even wider array of influences than before, yet still with that very distinct Muse sound.

"Uprising" and "Resistance" are fantastic to open the album, "The United States of Eurasia" and "Guiding Light" reek of Queen (that's a compliment in my book), and they manages to fit in some true prog rock in "Unnatural Selection" and the closing "Exogenesis" symphony.

This is not strictly prog rock, but any prog fan who has an appreciation for good rock/pop music should get a kick out of this one. It's epic, bombastic stuff; and these guys have the talent to back it up and a strong sense of good melody. Miles ahead of most pop music being released these days.

4 ****
