Well, I too was listening to the solo career of one Roger Taylor just last night, spinning Fun In Space, Strange Frontier, and then the first Cross album.
That was a tough two hours.
I can't even compare the two, Roger/Cross vs. C-lebrity. That's all I have right now, not the full LP. First off, Roger's solo stuff always left the impression that someone either just finished or is now handing Roger the second verse to sing. Then the third. So let's not even compare the lyrical content.
But the instrumentation is what really got me. I could have been in Roger's band. And no, I've already checked... my ego pedal is OFF. Those guys sucked. Even David Richards... if he did play 50% of the instruments on Strange Frontier.
Just my opinion, though.
