Brian- dislike Freddie's albums, like Roger's "Happiness" (more) and "Electric Fire" (less) and... that's about it..

Of all the solo stuff I like Roger's "Electric Fire" CD. If you notice the songs are pretty similar to those on "Happiness" but I like these songs better. Brian's solo stuff is not very interesting and Freddie never had the chance to use proper instrumentation for his works. I do, however, really enjoy the Furia soundtrack and the Barcelona CD.

I'd definitely have to say Roger's. I love "Electric Fire" especially.

If we're talking about Queen...and RELATED...

I urge everyone on this thread to pick up a copy of Tim Staffell's album aMIGO. It's tremendous!

www.timstaffell.com

It's nothing like what Smile or Queen did - but at the same time, it's very fresh!!

I highly recommend it! (HE takes my vote for 'recent' solo stuff....)

too tough...I'd just have to say Brian's AND Roger's.....Brian really rocks out although I actually wish even heavier and Roger is tremendously creative....Happiness was too mellow for me though.....Freddie's solo stuff was weak although his vocals naturally are stunning

Although I like the diversity you get with Queen music, the guitar is what I like most, so Brian's stuff appeals a lot from that point of view. Furia is a good soundtrack (if only I could see the film!!!). Brian should look to do more soundtracks when the Queen train finally pulls into the sidelines.

But I like Roger's style and I think Electric Fire is great. I like some Cross stuff too (mad bad is good due to the other band member's influence, but Shove It has some good stuff which might have benefitted from similar input)

I think Freddie wanted more control in recording Mr Bad Guy which is why it's so synth based. And also he wanted to steer away from Queen influences. I think they're good songs which could be recorded better. Musically Barcelona is fantastic, although I don't listen to it much to be honest.

1. Roger's
2. Freddie's
3. Brian's
4. No Turning Back
9999999. The Cross

I know its strange that I love Roger's stuff but HATE the Cross. But lets face The Cross were just a bad Heavy Rock band like Magnum and Thunder.


Guess who's back?

I love all of Roger's solo stuff, probably Strange Frontier the least (although Man On Fire, It's An Illusion, Masters Of War and Racing In The Street are all great songs). Although, I'd go as far as saying I Wanna Testify is one of my favourite Rog songs, and The Cross version of Final Destination is far better than the Yoshiki version (assuming the Yoshiki version is the b-side to Foreign Sand and I've not gotten muddled).

Brian's solo stuff is ok, I like Back To The Light as a concept and an album compared to Another World, which was a bit more of collection of tracks, albeit some good ones. As someone said, Furia is a brilliant album - I love Bri's atmospheric soundtrack work (and Dream Of Thee is lyrically a very moving song).

I love Mr Bad Guy, just coz its Fred, but Barcelona is a far superior album (especially The Golden Boy - what a song).

And No Turning Back is ok, I guess.

But aMigo, as someone else said, is a great album, very refreshing. It's a shame Roger couldn't get the time to feature on it, could have made Earth and Doing Alright even more impressive.
