The idea of Free/Bad Company frontman Paul Rodgers taking the place of Freddie Mercury for a new Queen album is an odd one indeed. Where Mercury was flamboyant and knowing, Rodgers--who toured with Brian May and Roger Taylor in 2005--is way more weighty and grizzled. The resultant album, The Cosmos Rocks, sounds literally like Queen's gregarious musicality has been filtered through the wide-holed sieve of Bad Company's own blues-rock schtick. That said, the soundtrack brims with multi-tracked guitar riffs and foams with layered vocal harmonies, and gets off to a rockin' start with "Cosmos Rockin'", a song that seems to be more a parody of, than a tribute to, one of the UK's most celebrated glam-rock bands. As the record moves through the soaring "Time to Shine", the bluesy "Still Burnin'" and the ballad "Small", it becomes clear that this is an album monumental only in its relative lack of imagination and meaningful lyrical content. It's buoyed sporadically by captivating ditties like "Call Me If You Need My Love" (vaguely reminiscent of "Crazy Little Thing Called Love") and the Freddie tribute "Some Things That Glitter", but these rarities are not quite enough to save The Cosmos Rocks from being an exercise in dire rock cliché. --Danny McKenna
