TOTW32: Athlete - Superhuman Touch

I've go to blog about Muse's latest offering, even if I'm not going to make it TOTW yet. Coming soon is their latest album "The Resistance", and earlier this week I heard the lead single Uprising. To which all I can see is - brilliant.

OK, so more than one person has already told me it sounds like the theme to Doctor Who. And yes, it's very definitely Muse, and the anthemic chorus is maybe slightly too close to Knights of Cydonia. But so what - it's what makes the band. And we'll all be remembering it for ages to come. The single and album aren't out until September, and only one radio listen over the week will never make a TOTW - but watch this space.

Also bubbling under this week was:
Arctic Monkeys - Crying Lightning
Kasabian - Where did all the love go?
Green Day - 21 Guns

TOTW though is from a band who've been fairly quiet recently, with a good catchy chorus which is all a song really needs to embed it into people's memories. Plus it's got them electronic twiddles - nice :)
