Pretty much the usual stuff Roger stirs up and personally if that got released i would not buy it.
Last great songs Roger wrote were from the "Happiness" album and that was a long time ago!

I agree with Benross. I don't expect any more quality music from May or Taylor. They are enjoying semi-retirement and raking in the profits from past glories.

I agree that the best songs are coming from the happiness album.

Wasn't bad. Wish I'd heard it on a better system

Good grief, not everything he's going to write is going to be a pop song or a full-on rocker. Fans can be so disappointing sometimes in that they don't allow artists to evolve. Roger has been writing some wonderful, down-to-earth songs lately, and Isolation really is a lovely track considering all the shit we're going through lately. A nice, summery, acoustic track. I especially love the double bass. Good on ya, Rog.

I agree, nice tune.

As for his recent production, I love Journey's End and Sunny Day and really like the purple version of Gangsters Are Running This World. Way after Happiness he also wrote and performed the amazing studio version of Invincible Hope. There's more of course, this is just from the top off my head.

Cheers,

I note Roger had deleted Paul Rodgers from Queen's post-Fredrerick era.

As for the song, I like it. Apart from much of the Cross stuff, much of which wasn't by Roger anyway, I don't think there's a Roger song I don't appreciate on some level, even if it's just to have a giggle at Rog trying to rhyme something with 'Afghanistan'.

I've come to appreciate Journey's End as a classy and poignant reflection on growing older.

Nice little Track which i'm sure will be growing.
I like the "strange times indeed"-part. (though it just reminds me on "good times are now".).
.
A track which proves Roger's still lasting ambition to raise the voice on an social topic. Not everyone's cup of tea but musically it has some of the well known trademarks of Roger's.

He didn't mention Deacon either, and he spoke about the tribute concert.

Might be unintentional, but May and Taylor hold the flame so the PR is theirs to do on their own terms.

Old rock bands are brands, and they are on always on point with how they're marketing their current projects. None of these guys are fools. There isn't much point in mentioning people who aren't in the family anymore.

Holly2003: Roger mentioned Paul Rodgers just two days ago (see BBC Radio 2 interview I posted on 24th).
He called him a wonderful singer.

Nothing to get excited about. Kind of boring, IMO.

I think it's one of those tracks that gets better with every listen.
