The Resistance is the first Muse album since the critically acclaimed, triple platinum selling Black Holes and Revelations that spawned five top 20 singles, was nominated for a plethora of awards, including the prestigious Mercury Music Prize, and concluded with two sold out nights at the newly opened Wembley Stadium. It was recorded in Northern Italy, produced by the band themselves and mixed by Mark ?Spike? Stent. In terms of sound and sonic vision The Resistance is their most ambitious long-player yet, which is clearly saying something. They have blown up the robo-funk/monster riff/stadium space rock sound of Black Holes... and widened their viewfinder even further to take in an even greater horizon of sound.
