4.0 out of 5 stars Into the light!, 2 Oct. 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Back To The Light (Audio CD)
You wouldn't think it now, but back in the early nineties, Brian was a pretty successful solo artist.
'Back To The Light' was the eagerly anticipated solo album, and rightly so. Of course, there are the vital Queen-isms sprinkled throughout the album. It's Brian May - he was the 'sound'!
From start to finish, this album is vibrant, immaculately played by a great band (including the late Cozy Powell on drums), and tracks such as the title track, "Resurrection", "Nothin' But Blue" (featuring Queen bass player John Deacon), and a great cover of The Small Faces' "Rollin' Over" prove that he can survive without Queen.
This is better than his second effort, "Another World", and, like a good action movie, keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. Just listen to his startling guitar solo on "Resurrection", or his eerie, eerie opening harmonies on "Too Much Love Will Kill You" (I'm sure that's Freddie in there somewhere!)
This album is superb - musically brilliant, lyrically moving, and definitely one to have in your collection! Brian May rocks. (And, at least on this album, he can sing!)
Long live BM.
