Saw it and heard it on Twitter. Not the greatest but it's at least its a little more upbeat (rhythmically, not as in gangsters are positive)


That said. If it's done with any passion it doesn't feel frustrated or disgusted enough.... very passive tone

Well both are musically more interesting than most of Fun On Earth (and I quite like that album, but not as his previous two). This one is faster and sound like proper hard rock song especially in some parts..
I do not know what would critics expect from RT? Guitars sounds like from NOTW, drums are great, even in his era with Queen he did not wrote big number of worldwide hits

Like something off the first Cross album. Kept expecting to hear a few queen bv samples pop up. But a huge burst of nostalgia splashes over me and I have a feeling if that was b side on the flip of a Miracle cassingle I'd have loved it.

Roger's voice sounds a bit dull and tired though the track itself has some nice beats

I like it a lot!

IMHO, B & R should join forces in the studio again, guest vocalists appearing or not.

Cheers,

Sorry but that track is a load of drivel and nothing as good as tracks on "Fun in Space".

A very different version from the original one. I prefer this one, honestly. Not Roger's best output so far, but it's good enough for a track that came out of the blue.

Honestly Roger and Brian need to get back in the studios and get some more unreleased tracks worked on instead of churning out rubbish like this Roger track.
I thought Queen comes first, obviously not.

great track. as this second version comes up.
that enhances the image.
great treatment. nothing spectacular, though. but very listenable for me.
.
nice to see that roger is playing with the style of a track's production.
keep on!
.
fingers crossed for a third version ;-)
would be welcome!

80's nostalgia.
