Visqueen opened the show up with a bang, Vampire Weekend, Phoenix and Metric kept adding more and more of a crescendo. 30 Seconds to Mars nearly blew the venue apart and just as the night was at a climax Muse came out and took away all the momentum that the previous bands had built. Nearly every new song they played was met with a confused crowd that just stood still until Muse started playing their older and much more respectable stuff, then the crowd was finally revived and got back into it. I hope Muse witnessed at this concert how much their new music is not the kind of music that you want to play at a concert where everyone else is playing their most beloved stuff to get the crowd into it. Rather than being a Resistance concert it should have been a greatest hits concert. I still love Muse but they have a lot of thinking to do.

An awe that really makes me think that bands are trying to regress musically or they're all just trying to piss me off by scrapping everything that has worked for them thus far and go in a new, terrible direction.
