Queen and Paul Rogers: The Cosmos Rocks

The three main protagonists on this album , namely Brian May, Roger Taylor and Paul Rogers each have their own familiar and distinctive styles that all come to the forefront on this album. The resulting concoction is a very convincing rock and roll album, but one that does not necessarily sit altogether comfortably with the rest of the mighty Queen cannon. Thankfully Paul Rogers is instantly recognisable as Paul Rogers and not Paul pretending to be Freddie. Homage is however paid to Queens illustrious past via Brian’s squealing guitar solos, trademark backing harmonies and even a nod to their classic anthem via two foot stamps and a clap.
