This is great, first time I've heard this. And Taylor's vocals are good too.
And as for our boys.....they rock.

I can´t find Rog in this song... I only hear Brian on BV´s. And the drums doesn´t sound like our Taylor.




Queen rocks!

I agree. I can definitely hear some Brian on the vocals, but no Roger.  I heard that Roger had co-written a song called Your Shoes so I'm thinking that is one of the songs he performed on. I think Way Down might be Brian only though (it's still a pretty good song though. I like it a lot).

If you know your Taylor Hawkins/Foos, then you know that's a classic Hawkins beat.

The first thing that struck me when I heard the song was that the vocals (pre-chorus) made it sound like a Mika song......which to me isn't so great.  I do love the music behind the vocal though.

Mika was my first thought exactly. My second thought was that it was really poppy, and I wasn't sure. I've listened about 3 or 4 times now, and slowly it started to feel less like pop and more like something better than that I couldn't quite put my finger on.  Then I read it described on the artist's site as "70's glam stomp" and I thought yes, that's what it is, and I think I like it.  But built for radio for sure. Have to see what's on the rest of the album.

First impresion, what Sweet would've sounded like if Noddy Holder was their lead singer. Interesting only because Brian (and Roger?) play on it , not because it's very innovatove or good. And even Brian's guitar work is predictable and unoriginal.

Meatloaf, oh how bloody embarrasssing, Brian really should not get involved in these crap guest rolls. Go and make some music with Roger or a solo Album instead. Thats what we want for f--k sake !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mealoaf would've made a good replacement for Fred. Better than Paul Rodgers anyway -- more suited to Queen's style of operatic, over-the-top performances. No disrespect meant to Rodgers, who is very talented in his own area of blues-rock.

Well, a few songs with Brian, and one with Roger just doing a few vocals, thats all.

I have the album, giving it a listen to..

But its not as Queen orientated at I had been led to believe

Which tracks feature Brian/Roger?

Brian sang on Way Down and Roger sang on Your Shoes. I think there might be one more song that Brian worked on, but I don't know which one. I was disappointed to see that it doesn't look like Roger did any drumming on the album.

Way Down is available in full on Taylor Hawkin's website. You can preview Your Shoes on Amazon right now and it's pretty obviously Roger doing background vocals.

Been listening to the album on Spotify this evening, pretty good. Defo Roger on backing vocals on Your Shoes, and what sounds quite a bit like Brian on guitar in places. Not Bad Luck is very Queen-esq, but if anything they only did the backing vocals there. Sounds like Brian plays on Don't Have To Speak.

Don't the sleeve notes with the CD say what tracks they are on?
