Hi Everyone

Just listened to the new album. I think its great. I love small. Do you think they'll do it live. That chorus would be so good for a sing a long. wat do you think? Bring on liverpool and Manchester.

I think I can't remember anything about the song, and I've heard it twice as often as the other songs on the album... :/

Well, I say the contrary; in my case I remembered the song after my first listening of the album. It is one of my favourites and I also think it could be one of the tour higlights with the audience singing the main chorus

I think it's great, but I doubt it'll be played live.

(For me, the only song I can't remember anything about is 'Through The Night'.)

Great, would have fitted well into any of the albums in their back catalogue. Has an old-time feel at the same time as being undoubtedly new. One of my favourite songs of the new album.

Small is really fantastic.
I think this would be a worthy addition to the live set on the tour.

Seriously, I love it.

The best of the 'quieter' tracks. I actually think they could close the concert on this - if they dare!

Not one of my favourites, sadly.

Musically, not bad. But the banal lyrics make it tough to listen to for me.

Sorry really don't get how you don't get this song. Personnally feel that this is one of the key defining points of an excellent album. Would agree bringing it back at the end sets the whole theme of the album. Really love this track got a very good idea behind it - together with We Believe and Surfs up you get a real idea about what Queen and Paul Rodgers is all about.
