Album Notes
Personnel: Brian May (vocals, guitar, keyboards); Chris Thompson (vocals); Mike Moran (piano, keyboards); Don Airey (keyboards); John Deacon, Neil Murray, Gary Tibbs (bass); Cozy Powell, Geoff Dugmore (drums); Miriam Stockley, Maggie Ryder, Suzie O'List, Gill O'Donovan (background vocals).Engineers include: J. Shirley-Smith, Alan Douglas, Brian Zellis.Includes liner notes by Brian May.As the guitarist for Queen, Brian May helped define that group's grand, almost operatic gestures. The trademark touches he brought to Queen's music--the massed sections of baroque multi-tracked strings, the burnished electric timbre and his keen lyric focus--are well-represented by BACK TO THE LIGHT. Of particular note is the title tune, which should remind old fans of classic Queen, even in the vocals. Likewise, on the lush Freddie Mercury-styled classical ballad "Too Much Love Will Kill You" and the protoboogie of "Resurrection," where May employs Cozy Powell's big rolling drum beat, walls of vocal chorales, distorted strings, and a high-flying lead line to supercharge his tale of renewal.Elsewhere, May enunciates a classic vision of the hard rock radio anthem. The crushing riffs and vocal one-upmanship of "Love Token" are reminiscent of Meat Loaf's big battle of the sexes gestures, while on "I'm Scared" May's mock-humorous insecurity finds release in a hard rocking power pop arrangement. For the slow dancers among us, the lazy backbeat and mournful nostalgia of "Nothing But Blue" and the fluid leads of the instrumental "Last Horizon" lend a contrasting touch of grace.

Back to the Light - 12 great tracks

Created: 18/04/11
Atmospheric opening sets the hair on the back of my neck standing and leads into a quality album, a nice message from Brian May is included in the CD card and Cozy Powell's influence is apparent despite May's words, with two of Powells own tracks being beautifully revamped for this album. This is a masterpiece of British Rock Music by a class group of musicians led by Brian May who proves here how much influence he obviously had in Queen. Even much later the quality and class of this album is obvious and it is amazing that it can be snapped up on ebay so cheaply! Grab a copy whilst it is cheap, if you are reading this reveiw you are interested - so do it you will not be dissapointed. If you don't already know it check out the live version of Resurrection parts 1 and 2 via Neil Murray who played bass on some of the tracks.
