Re: Odd song placements on albums

There’s a difference between not liking songs and thinking they’re in the wrong order on an album. Regarding Party and Kashoggi’s Ship, they work as a unique opening on a Queen album, because they are not designed to shout “Hey, we’re back with a new bigger and bolder album” but more ironically “we’...

Re: Roger at Freddie Tribute

Before the rumour about Chris Thompson, the original rumour was that Roger was going to sing AKOM. I’m not saying that was true, but that was the rumour immediately after the show, that he didn’t do it because the show ran overtime. It would make sense that Roger would sing Old Friends, because Bria...

Re: The Game 40th anniversary box set.

Of all Queen’s albums, The Game is the only one I think should’ve been a double album. It’s eclectic and “easy” to listen to in a loose kind of way. I think a double album with a mix of rock, pop, funk and disco would’ve been great at that time and removed Hot Space from existence.

I too appreciate fans who go to the effort of sharing things here. We don’t have to read posts we’re not interested in.

Re: Will the European Tour be cancelled due to Corona virus?

Yes, surely they’ll just decide a couple of weeks before shows. They’ve already cancelled football matches in Italy, so fans with tickets should at least be prepared for bad news.

Will the European Tour be cancelled due to Corona virus?

I hate to raise this, but the band has dodged a bullet in Japan and South Korea, but the timing couldn’t be worse for Europe. Hopefully the outbreak will be over by then but it’s bound to get worse before it gets better. The outbreak is presently worst in Italy, but who knows how bad it will get in ...

Re: Favorite Roger Taylor Album

Just compare the strength of the artwork and thematic concepts between the two albums for a start.

Re: Favorite Roger Taylor Album

If Fun in Space had been the basis for Queen’s post Greatest Hits album instead of Hot Space I think it would’ve been a huge hit. The reverse is to imagine if Radio Ga Ga had been relegated to a Roger solo album. (Or Heaven for Everyone).

Re: News of the World Discussion

I prefer Nine Inch Nails' version of Get Down Make Love. Just saying. No need to throw anything. A lot of those alternative 90s musicians were a bit of obsessed with News of the World I think. They were always going on about it.

Re: The Rhapsody Tour In Australia

Some highly subjective observations from the Sydney show. My fourth QAL show. QAL rule Australia this weekend. (QPR never even set foot here). The difference between this bohemoth and the their usual arena shows is that the "Queen fans", by which I mean those with some tacit 20th Century fan connect...
