I'm thinking of getting either "Back to the Light" or "Another World"...which would you all reccomend?


This is what you wanted, this is what you're going to get.

well, get both, both arent brilliant by any means, this is just my opinion i must say,but they have weak tracks and strong tracks, Brians voice is better on AW, than it is on BTTL, if you ask me, superb guitar playing on both, best making your own mind up. crap advice maybe, but trust your own ears.


Give me a good guitar and you can say that my hairs a disgrace.

Another World is way better!

Wilderness Child is his best solo track to me. Great covers towards the end.

If you were to go solo with Queen, I think Roger has the best overall catalogue and Freddie the best individual efforts.

What is Roger's best solo album? And am I correct in assuming that Mr. Bad Guy is Freddie's best effort?

And is The Immortals worth trying to get? Or is it just a collector's item?

I think that the best solo album by Roger Taylor would have to be fun in space...it was his first and think a lot of the songs on that album are pretty catchy. However, I really enjoy electric fire as well. Okay okay, I would suggest getting all of Roger's solo stuff. I have recently been listening to strange frontier, and am liking it more everytime...I don't know what to tell you ;-)
As far as Freddie's stuff, I love it but I think it's a little to much pop and dance type stuff.


they ran into their frocks quicker than anything!

I would reccommend Back To The Light if you want one of Brian's, but I stand firm on my belief that Mr Bad Guy is the best Queen solo album.


This can't end well.
