Roger Taylor has always been seriously under-rated. His first two solo albums: "Fun In Space", "Strange Frontier" were both good, but only his third "Happiness" can even begin to compare with the accomplished musicianship and sing-along-ability of this fine album.
Recorded at his home studio, this twelve-track album is better than Brian May's solo album of the same year, "Another World".
Songs such as "Pressure On", "Believe In Yourself", "Is It Me?" and "London Town - C'mon Town" prove to the world that the Queen drummer is not just a first-class drummer, but also a brilliant song-writer and singer. Indeed, he even plays guitars and bass on many of the tracks.
It lacks the charm of the first album (FIS), is better than the second album (SF), but in many ways is not quite as silently 'classic' as "Happiness".
It faired well in the charts upon release, and the singles ("Pressure On" and "Surrender") scraped into the bottom end of the top forty, which is surprising, due to the fact that if the question was asked: "Do you like Roger Taylor?", many people would immediately say: "Who?"
This album proves that the essence Queen was not just Freddie and Brian, but Roger (and John!) as well! Under-rated and brilliant!
Long may it continue, Rog!

Doesn't quite live up to it's predecessor "Happiness" but certainly comes close and much better than his earlier solo/Cross work (in my opinion!)
Lacks the bite of some of his Queen material (there's no Radio Ga Ga or Kind of Magic on this) and although lyrics again sounds cliched or forced in places it's still a damn good album.
Highlights are the rockier numbers, including "No More Fun" and "Nation of Haircuts" whilst "London Town" is a track that could have easilly slotted into any latter Queen album with the extra depth and diversity that perhaps some of the other tracks lack.
Queen fans will like this one. Roger Taylor fans will love it.

Roger's fourth solo outing Electric Fire sees the Queen drummer return to some sort of form following the well-intentioned, but ultimately disappointing Happiness (1994).
The album starts brightly with 'Pressure On' a slick mix of raw guitar, restrained vocals and a highly infectious chorus that gels the track together perfectly. However, on a 'Nation of Haircuts' and 'Believe in Yourself' Roger employs the same clumsy use of lyrics that plagued Happiness (namely on tracks such as Revelations and 'The Key'). Somewhat of a shame, especially as 'Believe in Yourself' captures that hard to emulate Beatles sound so well. 'Surrender' sees Roger collaborate with Jonathan Perkins (of Miss World and Dave Stewart fame) in a fairly hard-edged track (both musically and lyrically), while 'People on Street's' invites more social-commentary from Roger backed my some Eastern influenced rhythms. With the exception of 'No More Fun' (which really isn't fun) the album then steps up a gear or two with the highly polished 'Whisperers', the gloriously rocky 'Is it Me?' and 'Where are you Now?' plus the uplifting and emotive track 'Tonight' (possibly the best on the album). Add in a cover of Lennon's Working Class Hero and the corking finale 'London Town' and you have a likeable, if a little patchy effort from King's-Lynn's finest. That said, for Queen fans wanting to discover Roger's exploits outside of the band, the second solo effort 'Strange Frontier' remains his strongest work to date, while best of all is the cruelly ignored (and very hard to get) 'Blue Rock' album which he recorded during his time with part-time band 'The Cross'.

I can't help myself - I love his voice! This CD shows that he's become an accomplished solo artist as well as being a first class drummer. Pressure On is pretty good - I had to giggle at some of the lyrics but hey, it's a good song. I absolutely LOVED Nation of Haircuts - it's musically good, lyrically humorous and loud; I Surrender is FANTASTIC; Believe In Yourself is so Beatle-sounding; London Town is breathtaking after the first part - those guitars are incredible and it was so incredible live. A good all-rounder with the odd iffy track that he can be excused....can't wait for his next. Like a good malt whiskey, he definitely improves with time.

When I first bought this CD and listened to it I thought 'Hmmph'. I thought it was uninspiring and disappointing. However, I listened to it again and it sounded a little better. I've now listened to it many times and I am convinced it fully deserves 5 stars.
I think the best word to describe this album is 'interesting'. The use of electronics and the harsher guitars (compared to Brian May) and the unusual vocal styles all add to this impression. You won't find much of the obvious drumming and long guitar solos that make Queen music what it is, but rather than being a down side this actually makes you pay more attention to the thought-provoking lyrics and Roger's unusual and emotive vocals.
Top tracks are Pressure On, Nation of Haircuts, Surrender, Is It Me?, No More Fun, People On Streets, but everyone will find something different to love in this album.
This album is well worth buying, but remember to listen to it several times!
