Yes. I was there, in London 10 years ago. The best milkshake ever :)

Next time you visit, try a place called Five Guys, I think you might be amending that statement. The chips and milkshakes are Ed's plus, and then some. They cook their chips in peanut oil, mmmm!

Probably not very good if you have a nut allergy though.

Just got my dispatch email. Had forgotten all about it, more looking forward to the 3D book at this point but I'll definitely give this a listen when it arrives.

It's the worst Queen-related song I've ever heard. It feels so deeply uninspired I find it very sad.

Well, not every song can be a The Kissing Me song, I guess.

I start thinking that this song could be the soundtrack for a film.. maybe one of the Disney movies. Would be perfect for that really. Anyone else feeling the same way about it, or is it only me ?

This is not the music I would sit down and listen to, but for it's audience, I guess it does quite ok. That is about all I can say. It isn't Queen, neither is it close to Brian solo albums, but more sort of musical, theatrical, soundtrack kind of music. I prefer any track on the Hot Space album before this. It is a mile away from any Queen material or Brian solo. But it is a happy song, and the World needs to be more happy these days, so I guess it won't hurt.

It's a pure pop song. Queen and Brian were never pure pop...they always veered much better than that...but given who it was written for and what she wants to do...it makes perfect sense.

I think uninspired is an accurate comment already posted by someone. After a couple of listens i could not put my finger on it, but uninspired does seem to fit as i was expecting a little better. I will give the whole album a listen when it arrives and hope for something more inspiring .
I like her voice she is indeed a talented vocalist but feel they are both capable of so much more which is frustrating.

I always listen to solo stuff with a very open mind and don't really compare to Queen. I remember the time i first heard Roger's 'Fun in Space' on the day of release way back when and it blew me away ( still does ).
In my opinion until Brian takes time out to specifically write and record a brand new solo album that leans towards complete artistic licence to please himself ( which i feel may lean to more guitar/heavier influence ) we will continue to have these type of releases.He has after all earned the right to do whatever pleases himself and not the die hard fans.
I felt he was happiest playing the sort of stuff that can be heard on 'Star Fleet' and whilst this type of recording would never appeal to the masses would certainly be a far more inspired release than the album that's about to drop.

Eh, not awful, but not really my cup of tea either.

Roll With You really is awful. As predictable as it is bland. And those lyrics :cry:

Whats a what on your 'iphone'. Ouch.

Queen are far too inward looking. Everything they do is 'produced' in-house these days and I can't help feeling that they really could do with losing one or two of the sycophants who nod some of this stuff through without calling out that the emperor has no clothes on.

Everything he has done on other peoples records is better than anything he has done on this one.
