5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the last, 23 Feb. 2004
This review is from: Mo's Barbecue (Audio CD)
I was a little taken a-back when I heard there was to be a new Bowes & Morley album. Thunder seemed to be constantly touring last year so I don't know where theyve found the time to fit in the recording...but I'm so glad they did!!
Mo's Barbecue is simply, excellent. Like "moving Swiftly Along" the rock riffs are in short supply, substituted for a much more laid back and slightly funky approach. The covers are superb and Danny's voice, as always, lives up to all expectations. Not a single bad track on the album means its worth every penny and every minute of your time to listen to it.
I was lucky enough to get a sneak preview and I promise you will not be let down. If you like Danny's voice or just fancy chilling out for a bit - buy it!

4.0 out of 5 stars Queen without the pomp and circumstance, 15 July 2002
This review is from: Queen At The BBC (Audio CD)
Simply put, this is Queen laid bare. This is a surprisingly fresh sounding compilation of tracks recorded live for the BBC in the very early 70's, before Queen made the breakthru to commercial success. Queen were, in their early years, constantly criticised for over producing and relying on studio gimmicks to make the songs work, 30 years later this CD raises a gracious 2 fingers at those critics and proves that beneath the "Queen Sound" was one of the finest rock and roll bands the world has ever and will ever see.
A must for Queen fans and an intersting insight into the bands early years, for those that aren't, definately worth a listen. Listen out especially for Doin Alright, more like Smiles original version, this is better than the version on Queens first studio album, worth the price alone!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the sound of the summer, 7 July 2002
This review is from: Moving Swiftly Along (Audio CD)
What can i say?? A cracking collection of 13 new songs! But I have to admit to getting that sinking feeling as Freakshow began at my first time of listening, this has to be the worst track on the album, it sounds jaded and has an eightie's feel to it that isn't retro - just poor.
However, the true quality of this recording kicks in with Hypnotized from there on in it's a rollercoaster ride of extremely funky basslines, some great guitars and the best (living) voice in rock music.
The ballads (as you would expect from these two) are beautiful, not a bad one or overly cheesy one amomgst them (although track 5 comes close "wipe away the cheese in every trace" hhhmm)!
The whole album has a great summer feel to it and I know that it's gonna be bursting my eardrums as I cruise the promenade in my Ford Capri (aherm!). Buy it - it's a belter!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a masterpiece, 6 July 2002
This review is from: Made In Heaven (Audio CD)
This album was always going to be a dangerous project for Brian,Roger and John as it was likey they would face accusations of "cashing in". However, this is far from being the case. From it's enigmatic opening to it's surreal curtain call this is a materpiece. As fun and funky as any of Queens 80's hits (I Was Born To Love You, You Dont Fool Me). As pompous and grand as they ever were (Made In Heaven, Heaven For Everyone) and at times painful (Mother Love). There are some curio's thrown in for goosd measure too, My Life Has Been Save was a B-side from 1989 but listen to the lyrics and if there is a message anywhere on this album, I think you'll find it here. Buy it.
