Just got Roger Taylor's Strange Frontier album in the mail yesterday (bought it off amazon), and I gotta say, it's interesting.

I've always liked Roger's style of music, and it wasn't until now that I could hear a whole album's worth of it. My fave tracks are "Killing Time", "Man On Fire", and "Abandonfire". Also the cover of Dylan's "Masters Of War" is nice...

I don't know. I'm really into the electronic drums and synthesizers from the '80s, and Strange Frontier sounds pretty kickass.

Well, that's it for now. I wonder what Roger album I should check out next...?

On a bare and weathered shore

We can only bow to the here and now

Yes, I have SF and Fun In Space... they're very similar, so if you liked Stranged Frontier, I'd go there next.

I never have picked up anything else other than those two, so I'm not sure what the rest of his solo stuff is like. I do not like electronic drums (unless they're Bruford's) so I assumed he continued using them and I've never ventured further.

I Love This Album!!
Strange Frontier, Man On Fire, Killing Time and Young Love are my favourites song on this LP, But i consider that Happiness and Electric Fire are awesome!!! Nah Electric Fire is the best Roger album ever

I'd go with 'Fun In Space'. It sounds remarkably different. It's amazing how different RT was between 70's and 80's songs.

I only like a few of rogers solo songs

Nazis, Man On fire, and Old Friends are awsome, but the the rest is on Paris Hiltons level or something.. At least Strange Frontier is :p

As Tiger pointed out the correct title I shant go there..lol.. but the first time I heard that track I didnt know it was Roger singing.. Silly me.. but it was awesome that they slowed DOWN his voice to make him sound like he was a soul singer.. kinda like Issac Hayes or Barry White.. I LOVE that track..
