Muse: “Undisclosed Desires” (2009)

Weird band, Muse. Sometimes they sound like they grew up listening to ELO. Sometimes they sound exactly like U2. They definitely seem to merge a bunch of influences and don’t seem to try to hide them.

Prog websites and publications claim them for prog, but I don’t hear that at all. Some consider them one of the great bands of this era. I’m not sure I hear that either. But each of their last few releases has had at least a couple of tracks that caught my attention–like this one.
