I haven't been in any real anticipation for this album. I caught the lineup at last year's VH1 Rock Honors, and found that Paul Rodgers was really a bad fit for Queen. I think it was Rodgers' overuse of his "whoa-oh-oh-oh" ad-libs, or the fact that he couldn't hit the notes like Freddie could. I really loved it when the Foo Fighters joined with Queen and did a great version of "Tie Your Mother Down", thankfully that tune was Rodgers-less. But after that show, I doubt I will go out of my way to listen to this new album because of Paul Rodgers. And this is coming from a fan of Free, Bad Company and the Firm.
