It's up on the Cosmos Rocks fan-club 'Images' page! I like the fact that the three members are on the cover - getting excited for the 13 all-new tracks!

Same. I also like the fact that the members are on the artwork as well.
It's really different, and I love it :-)

I'm getting excited!

the picture is very nice, but the backgrounds are terrible. Better than the "nebule", but still with an amateur style

I like it, except for the typography. I would've used something classier than this.

At least it's better than the Hubble telescope thing we've seen everywhere. It's not an iconic album cover like MIH, ANATO or NOTW - but it's not too bad.

Any one reckon 'The Call' will be released under Q&PR Cosmos even as a B-side?? I know I'm probably the ONLY person who is hoping for this - but for me fingers crossed!

Upon first glance I really wasn't impressed. I want to be, believe me, but it just didn't happen for me. The font is very boring, as is the background. However, I do like the picture of the band. This is tough for me. My opinion is totally unbiased. I simply want the band to be active. It gives me great joy and excitement to know that Brian, Roger, and Paul are collaborating. Perhaps I'm being too critical of the art? Perhaps the artwork isn't THAT bad and I'm just being a cold hearted prick of a critic?

I'm just wondering if there will be a B-side to the single and if, will it be another live track something from ROTC or will it indeed be the cover song which they stated won't be on the album after all, or maybey another track. Well at least I hope it's something new

Good, clean, modern (but not fad) design. I'm glad Queen artwork has aged so gracefully.

I'm looking forward to this release and hope to buy it the day it comes out. I don't expect it to be as good as the original line-up's work, but I hope for some good riffs and beats.

Its a long time since we heard something new from Brian and Roger, but Paul is too much of a professional to ever release something that is crap. My bet is that they still got it though, even if it surely wont be like before.

Really like the cover though. Brian was right, very surprising. Think that this will be a very surprising album and tour. After all Queen was always a forward-looking band.

Too long, although there have been a few solo albums and 46664 tracks. I wish more of those made it to the Queen+Paul Rodgers playlist.

And I don't generally like Paul's work, but the chemistry between him, Roger and Brian is amazing. Good things can come out of that.

Yeah, I agree. The solo albums are both nearly ten years old now but the high level of them is what makes me think they still can cut it. I think most of the covers on another world are a bit uninteresting, but Brians own songs and the guitar work is ace. Personally I think that Electric Fire is the best thing Rogers ever done. Say its not true, though I know many people hate it, is to me nearly as good a song as hes ever written.

Pauls talent is in a league of his own though, even if I can understand why some people arent interested in his work. If he had written take love during the Bad Company days it would have been a great hit and here is the guy doing it 30 years later and hardly considering releasing it. His voice is better than ever as well. And I agree with you there is certainly great chemistry between them.

Steven's girlfriend says...

"This album cover is not their best. At least for Queen. I am not much of a Paul Rodgers fan, so I do not know what artwork graces his singles and such. I just felt that there would be some more thought put into this. They've had enough time, and it just seems slapped together. I also anticipated more imagination. Overall, I am not impressed and am slightly disappointed with them. I know it won't ever be like the "old" artwork, and that's not what I'm looking for. I want new and fresh, and this is not either."

I think that this cover might work, because it will stand out from all the other covers out there, and they can benefit from this with a good marketing campaign.

Take care

That artwork is rubbish but, as they used to say, it's what's in the groove that counts.
