WHEN IS MUSIC too much? I'm not talking about the torrent of songs that surround us every day – I've argued how we should work with this excess. I'm being literal. I'm talking about songs being smothered with strings, bruised and bloodied by drums, and swaddled in vocals that are more multi-tracked than the approach to London Paddington. And I ask this, specifically, after hearing Muse's new album, The Resistance.
