I've had a lot of negative comments to make about theway Q+PR has been promoted up to now. I think they are finally getting back on track now. This is great!

I wonder if they are previewing all the tracks of the album or just some?

I might pay £2 for a charity for listening to the album (and deciding whether to actually buy the product)... :/

Absolutely, this is a pretty great idea. Maybe 15 of those songs will be previously unplayed (or not played in a while) and/or new.

On top of that, I'm willing to donate £2 (which probably translates to $1.50 American, nowadays) to a charity for this album club.

It's not, I was joking about the current state of the American dollar.

Actually 2 GBP =4 USD. Still not a bad price for some of the goodies.

Press release states that the album is untitled at the present time.

Then you can bet my last pound sterling that I am praying for some Queen/PR inspiration. For that *potential* name truly sucks the cocks of dead camels.

What? Only 15 free tracks?

Sorry, couldn't resist ;) 2 pounds for a charity to get that... sounds more than fair...

I will join...

... but I assume we won't be able to buy live recordings from all gigs, will we? We'll probably get just 2-3 tracks from each gig, just like on the QPR 2005 tour.

Which means that once again I'll have to take my bootlegging equipment with me :-(

Agreed - a good idea. Hope the tracks available are ones which will not appear on any future planned live release. ONLY EXCLUSIVE TRACKS PLEASE!


We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.
