Much like when I first heard our lord Jesus preaching to us atop the Mount of Angels in Hoolisibeth I picked my way through the crowd to hear him better and then that moment when the arrow hit my heart. Like a bolt of lightening it moved to my brain and suddenly to my every instinct of what it meant to be a human. Nothing before that moment mattered to me.

I bought it from Amazon, in digital edition. Beautiful song, It shows Brian's guitar and voice. I hope Brian and Roger edited these types of songs in the future.

Just got it on iTunes. What a great job all around. Sounds like a far better version of what Roger tries to achieve when he's in John Lennon mode. Restrained vocal, snappy kick drum and damn it, a great solo from the Doc. Highly recommended.

This was just great. Its the closest I have been to a "Queen experience" without FM since No One But you in 1997. I do not count "Let me in your heart again" as it was an old recording pasted together with FM.




Basically blind em and deaf em in the first 10 minutes, and while they are recovering from that put in the less good songs

Well, if that's what i'm waiting for more than ten years... original version is subtle, this is too much Brianesque - here and there guitar pieces and harmonies, well I am maybe used to the old one but for me is like they are trying too much to make it different. Best part is the ending section, the rest is missing the gradation of the original one.

Very Nice! Great solo!

I wonder what took them so long to release it... Maybe it was supposed to be part of a bigger promotion scheme for the gigs they planned to do together around that time?

Cheers,

It's really good. Brian does some very cool and tasteful licks towards the end, and the vocal harmonies are nicely done.
