Random comment, but Roger sounds really hot in Let Me Live :) I love his bridge especially :)

Me too! Glad I'm not the only one... I used to fast forward to his part then rewind and listen to it again.

I'm not really a fan of Roger's singing. Don't hate it, but don't love it, either.

But I do have to say that of the whole Queen catalog (not solo stuff), "Let Me Live" is my favorite solo of Roger's. It's damn good.

OMG!

Yes!

I love his voice on the Live stuff too... LIke the end of Radio Ga-Ga on Wembly when he goes "YYYYYYOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUUUHHH"

His voice is very sexy.

I think Brian played one of his best solos on that track

I would've said that that's the worst Roger add-in bit.

I reckon Brian could have done better on this song. I'm not actually saying his singing was 'bad', per se, I just imagine he could do better.

Mebbe I'm wrong. Haha.

My opinion, but I think he sounds old and tired in that song, particulary in the bridge. He goes into a weak falsetto thing at the end of the bridge that he would have belted back in the day. Go listen to anything he sings on NOTW or Jazz for comparison.

Just my opinion...
