Average song, IMHO. I think 80% of TCR is better. I went for a beer in the Las Vegas gig in 2006 during that song. I remember reports that they recorded it during the California part of the 2006 tour, so it could see the light of day sometime in the future.

Cheers,

As the story goes, it was recorded for The Cosmos Rocks, but the band wasn't happy with the way it sounded, so they scrapped it.

LOL, I see your point. The thing is it was pretty easy to get out of my place and get back to it immediately. Just so you know, I live in Brazil and I flew in straight from a meeting in Trinidad and Tobago. I arrived just 2 hours before the gig. I needed a beer at some point :)

Cheers,

I'd rather listen to Take Love than We Believe.

I agree with Erin & I'll further her comment.  Take Love was better than most of the garbage on TCR, even though it itself isn't that great of a song.


I'm just getting used to my new exposure

Come into my enclosure

And meet my melancholy blues

We Believe is on of the best songs from the TCR album

"We Believe" takes off somewhere in the middle - like many of their songs on TCR. I think that's true of "Small" and "Say It's Not True" to name but two.

And I like ALL of the tracks on TCR. Some more than others. I'm just so very glad to have them.

TCR is a Paul Rodgers solo album with Brian and Roger. There is virtually no 'Queen' on this album, unfortunately. BM's solo albums are much more Queen than TCR.

that´s because only Brian owns the distinctive Queen guitar sound and he has always been inclined towards playing with vocal harmonies too. You don´t find anything of that in any Roger solo album, so:

an album by Roger + Paul + little input from Brian = very little Queen (I mean "Freddie" Queen) sound

Anyway, I liked the album since it was released, and I listened to TCR again yesterday after a couple of weeks without doing it and I E-N-J-O-Y-E-D it more than ever.

And you can find Queen sounds in Cosmos Rockin´; and many more in Still Burnin´; and many more in We Believe.

Just my opinion

You are right, Vali. I also enjoy even more the album each time I go back to listen to it. You are also rigth about the reasons for the different sound of the album. If the information that came trough to us is correct, it had less input from Brian than usually. That made the album sound less "queenie" than we would have wanted it too. Anyway, I thank God each and every day that they even consider recording and touring at this stage of their lives.

"Rock'n'roll never die!!!" ROTFLMAOCOPTER. :)

Cheers,

It's good to see some positive comments on We Believe. I enjoy that song greatly. I had such low expectations of this track when I heard the first 30 second clip but when I heard it in full I loved it and have done ever since.
Maybe it's because English is not my native language that the preachy lyrics don't bother me at all.

I love the build up that leads to the chorus and the chorus itself.

Favorite tracks from day one: Cosmos Rockin', Time to Shine, We Believe and Some things that Glitter.
Tracks that grew on me: Small, Surf's Up and, to a lesser degree, Through the Night.

small reprise is a perfect ending to a great album.

I hope they make a new album, maybe with more input from Brian now.

Same here, Wiley, as for Through the Night. That is a track that I always skipped at first, but I'm listening a lot to it latelly. I would rank my faves like this, even though Through the Night is getting more plays than any of them nowadays:

1 - Some Things That Glitter
2 - Surf's Up / Still Burning (tie)
4 - Runaway (iTunes exclusive)
5 - Cosmos Rocking
6 - C-lebrity
7 - Through the Night
8 - Say it's not true
9 - Voodoo
10 - Small
11 - Call me
12 - Time to Shine, Warboys, We Believe, Small Reprise (Tie)

We Believe is one of the most beautiful new songs I've heard in a long time, and one of Queen's most beautiful songs ever.



We got the Cosmos rockin'!

We got the Cosmos rockin'!

We got the Universe rockin'!

We got the Cosmos rockin'!

We got the Cosmos rockin' to the mighty power of rock'n'roll!
