Estella Hung isn’t too keen on Muse’s new album The Resistance, but she did like the lead track, which the band played last night on the VMAs. “‘Uprising’, easily the best track on the album, is a terrific hacking away at the theme from Dr Who by a Glitter stomp powered by quasars galore. Like the faintly Beck-like ‘Supermassive Black Holes’ on Blackholes and Revelations, it’s the album’s one pleasant surprise.”
