Queen + Paul Rodgers - The Cosmos Rocks

Release Date: 10/28/08
Genre: Rock

I know what you're thinking. Why couldn't they just come up with an entire new name. How dare they disgrace the name of Queen. O well.

Review: So "Cosmos Rockin'" isn't so bad. Nice speed and chorus. The album has too many slow ballads that wear me down. Some work (ex: We Believe, Say It's Not True), some don't (ex: Some Things That Glitter, Through The Night). For an album that runs for 60 minutes, that's a very bad thing to have songs of the same type all in a row. I dont think the album is terrible, just too much of the same so it comes off as dull.

Summary: Comparing, it's not the worst Queen album. Without comparing, this is one of those albums old people sing about that young people don't care.

Key Tracks: Cosmos Rockin', Call Me
Rating: 5/10
