This is my first review of anything so please bear with me.
I have always liked Brian May's guitar work and prefer instrumentals to vocals usually.Although this is not an instrumental album the sections are longer than normal and Brian has incorporated many different styles and types of music into the tracks.the Queen sound is quite obvious on some tracks and at times you can imagine Freddy Mercury singing alongside him.I wasn't really looking for Brian May when I bought it ,I just read someone elses review and thought I'd risk it and I'm glad I did.
if your a Queen fan, then this is right up your alley. Brian delivers his first solo record after freddies death and it stands up as a great rocking album with some lovely ballads thrown in. John Deacon from Queen even makes an appearance on 1 song. Just a shame that Freddie had dies by the time this record was released. Most of the album just sounds similar to the hard rocking Queen stuff like Driven by you or Love token. Queen fan? Get it!!!
Excellent album, Queen-style(naturally)guitar action. 18 years after it's release it still sounds fresh. Brian May has a style all his own, and it's brilliant guitar playing. His vocals aren't bad either.
If you love Queen you will love this album, although it's more straight-forward, and not as ambitious as Queen albums tend to be.
Nice CD with traces of Queen still to be found - although he doesn't seem keen to admit to this. True, nonetheless and no bad thing !
Could not resist buying this album.
Brian May is an accomplished musician and is worth a listen.
Some really good tracks
