    A strong comeback

    First off all. Those expecting to hear Freddie should leave now. This is a new group with plenty of nods to Queen &amp Paul Rodgers past careers. I think many people had unrealistic expectations. It's not another A Night The Opera, but it is a mighty fine rock album!! Cosmos Rockin' kicks the album off in true rock n' roll fashion. This is a great lively track that clearly shows that Brian, Roger &amp Paul had a huge amount of fun recording this album. Time to Shine is really unlike anything that they have recorded before. This has hints of a U2 sound at parts and is one of the standout tracks on the album. Still Burnin' is probably one of the weakest tracks on the album, but is rescued by a great solo from Brian. Small is the outstanding track of the album. A simple acoustic number that builds to a beautiful chorus and great solo from Brian. Warboys started life as a Paul Rodgers solo track and here is given the full on rock treatment. A great military time drumbeat makes this one of the highlights of the album. We Believe is probably the weakest track on the album for me, simply because the lyrics are a little to cheesy for me. This is probably the most &quot Queen&quot sounding track on the album. Call Me, is a simple light weight number that is incredibly catchy. The guitar solo from Brian would not sound out of place on A Night At The Opera. Voodoo is a totally departure for Brian and Roger, but it works. One of the standout tracks on the album. Very bluesy, great stuff. Some Things That Glitter is one of the best tracks that Brian has written in over 20 years. The highlight of the album. The guitar playing on this one sounds like it came from a Queen album from the 70s. C-lebrity is the lead single and is a comment on the celebrity culture in which we live. A powerful guitar riff and catchy chorus makes this an obvious choice for the 1st single. Through The Night sounds like a Bad Company track, which is not a bad thing. This is after all a Queen + Paul Rodgers album. Say It's Not True was originally written for Nelson Mandella's 46664 campaign and is reworked here. Featuring lead vocals from Brian, Roger &amp Paul the track builds from an acoustic number to a power ballad in the classic Queen style. Surf's Up . . . School's Out! is a Roger track. VERY Roger. A pounding rhythm reminds me of Headlong. This is a very fun track! Small reprise is a beautiful end to the album. Lovely guitar work from Brian.

    I Also Recommend:

    It IS Queen!

    Despite what the All Music Guide critic may say about the Queen+Paul Rodgers combination being "meat and potatoes" whereas the original Queen was "champagne and caviar" -let me remind this dude that meat and potatoes is what rock and roll is all about, I've never seen a revolution being any other way-, this is latter-day Queen, simply put. I was a Queen fan for the first LPs up to Jazz, then they got to pop-oriented for my taste, with or without Freddy. I've also always been a Paul Rodgers fan, so the combination of the two artists is appealing to me, with Paul bringing in a little bit of "heaviness" lacking in Freddy's voice. So even if this latter-day album is pop-oriented also, Paul's contribution and Brian's heavy playing make it more bearable than the Queen of the late 80s-early 90s.

    Terrible

    This is the most embarrassing album I have ever subjected myself to. Actually I didn't since I never got past the 4th song. Brian, you are a genius on guitar but I would have rather heard another solo album from you than this parody of a rock band. I never heard such a silly imitation of a rock band. This is a joke, right?
