Brian May "loves" the trio's sound.

Brian May has revealed that he "loves" the new Muse album, acknowledging that the Teignmouth trio have taken a leaf from Queen's book.

"I love it, I think it's great stuff," he told the BBC. "I think they're very good boys and extremely talented... and like us, they have their tongue in cheek a lot of the time."

May singled out the track 'United States Of Eurasia' as a particularly Queen-y piece of work. "They are extraordinary musicians, real virtuosos - much more than I am. I like the way they let their madness show through, always a good thing in an artist."
