Recommended Songs : We Believe, Small, Through the Night
I have not yet got a copy of this but based on the album preview widget (see front page of this site) it seems to be a very varied album with the musical talents of all 3 musicians shining true. Not a Queen album however – if you are expecting the Queen sound you may be disappointed but you won’t be disappointed by the quality of the songs – lots to satisfy all tastes. I really like “We believe”, “Small” and “Through the Night” and there are plenty more which will grow on you, I’m sure.
Looking forward to getting the album and a further review will follow as well as an update on the review score for this album
