Re: Queen + Paul Rodgers: Cosmos Rocks

Right, got it and listened to it 3 times last night.

I like it, but I don't love it. About half the tracks are strong, but I think there is too much blues rock and balladery. Also, the lyrics are pretty fluffy and empty headed, but Rodgers voice is dead on (except when he sings oooh noises, he sounds like he is being strangled), and there's some really good work from May and Taylor outside of the aforementioned over-present pentatonic widdling.

It sounds to me more like a selection of tracks from their various solo albums than a Queen album.
