Everyone say that TCR is horrible, bad, etc. But i dont think that it is all that bad. Most of the songs are very good and whatnot. MY only real biff with it is that it would have fared much better IMO if it were sold as Brian May and Roger Taylor With Paul Rodgers.

I think it's ok but nothing special with the exception of a few songs such as say it isn't true being a personal high on it

Yeah. C-Lebrity is one of my favorites, but the lyrical content is a bit ironic, doncha think?

Hmm with C-Elebrity I think it's one of the most poorly written songs by Queen to be frank I like the rocky sound of it and Paul's vocals are good on it but the lyrics kinda wreck it for me IMO

Thank you for not being a basher of TCR! When it cam out, everybody thought it was going to be another Innuendo or something! What did they expect it to be? I think it is a rightly enjoyable album to listen to and enjoy. It would though have fared better, as mentioned above, if it were not marketed as a Q+PR project.

Queen had the guts to compose new songs in an era were no much seventies bands do that.

Same here. Its one of those albums that grows on you after time and each listen. Just like Driving Rain by Paul McCartney.

I wasn't too impressed the first time I heard it, although I loved a few songs.  But like several people said, it grows on you.  I don't listen to it often, although thinking about it now I should put it on again, but I like it well enough now.  I really like several songs on it and really dislike one or two, but overall I'm starting to like it more.  I suppose it was bound to be a let down without Freddie and John - even though we all knew they weren't on it it was hard to imagine any new 'Queen' material without their influence and with another strong influence.  I guess I kind of expected it to sound something like Brian and Roger's solo work, but of course with Paul's influence it wasn't going to.  I still like the live QPR album better though, that was more like hearing Queen rom a different perspective, it's interesting.

For me it's a hard question...
It's not bad.
It's not very good.
But it is good in comparison with what is around now.
I liked Small, Warboys, Through The Night, Say It's Not True.
I just used to a blow from Queen, and this is a kind of nostalgia... I love that crazy '70, but the thing is that they will never be repeated again. It will never be like that again- the time has changed, the musicians has changed- everything did!
Probably it is good, in it's own way...

I think anyone who expected it to sound like Queen (of old) was always going to be disappointed.







Brian and Roger were 14 years older than when they last worked together (on a whole album of new material), and 40 years older than when they were in Smile. There is bound to be a massive change of approach in that time.







Throw in the new influence of a different collaborator and you will have something that will not sound like traditional Queen.

That's what I'm saying generally... Funny and sad:)

I love the album.  It is a very good project, although I would have liked it to have Brian May singing a whole song lead.

Yes. I thought it was OK the first time I heard it and didnt put it on again for almost 6 months! But i have recently rediscovered it. Too bad I live in Florida and am only 14 or else I would have definitely gone to a QPR gig.
