DO YOU THINK THAT QUEEN+PAUL RODGERS ARE GOING TO INCLUDE THOSE SONGS INTO THEIR NEW ALBUM?

I CAN'T FIND THEM.

Please God no, I never thought I'd say it but whatever Brian was smoking at the time of writing these, he took one puff too many.

Neither of these songs stand up as Queen songs, they sound like a rush job to me and I suspect both would have been rejected from an album had they not been the only choices.

God I just thought of something, what if they were not the only choices? what if there were worse songs that got rejected! I do hope Brian hasn't lost it, I'm counting on him and Roger to come up with a great new album...

The man who wrote '39 just 25 years later writes The Call... The best example of what time is doing with us.

IH (studio version) was available to download from 46664.com and remixed version from iTunes.

The Call should be locked away in a vault somewhere never to be heard again.

Well the music is ok, but the "lyrics" and vocal is just awful. Brian trying to "rap". [Shudders uncontrollably]

Its more sing-talking than rapping.

I've heard Invincible Hope a few times, and is it me or did they use the drum beat from Another One Bites The Dust in that song??

I really like The Call... The song is more of a political speech. I really like it. And the orchestration is great

It ain't rapping. But - it's not what I'd call easy listening either; if you like listening to Brian May shout about AIDS, go for it.

The song really is very well orchestrated, as has been said already, a very nice sound to the instrumentation.
But it's not really different enough from The Show Must Go On, for me, and the idea gets old quickly (Brian runs out of rhymes).

It's good to have positive opinion about the song if you have high quality studio version of that... Isn't it, Niek? ;)
