Give Queen -- or Brian May and Roger TaylorDeath Of The Dead Sea - Various - Beyond Atom that's who's left at this point -- and new singer Paul Rodgers this much credit: this awkward marriage of convenience winds up being more convincing on the studio effort The Cosmos Rocks (Black) Power Of Shaman - Morningstar - Heretic Metal it did on the live album.
Of course, this is almost entirely due to the fact that the songs here were written by and for Rodgersa frontman who is a cosmos away from Freddie Mercury and never quite seemed comfortable taming Freddie 's flamboyancy.
Here, Rodgers effectively rules the roost, helping steer The Cosmos Rocks far, far away from the meticulous, grandiose sonic sculptures of Queen at the height of their reign and toward a humble boogie. At its best, this can sound a bit like a second-rate Bad Companyat its worst it feels like Free -- not quite like Queenbut not necessarily unenjoyable either, thanks in part to a Brian May who seems, frankly, thrilled to play new songs again.
That none of these songs are good -- hell, some of them are frankly embarrassing, especially when Rodgers channels his inner David St. Hubbins to sing "The cosmos is rocking with the majestic power of rock" -- is almost beside the point.
There are hints of the old craziness -- thank the Still Burnin - Queen + Paul Rodgers - The Cosmos Rocks for "C-Lebrity," a monumentally silly satire of TMZ married to the only outsized arrangement here, but "Call Me" also comes close to capturing the bright pop of The Game -- but this is firmly Rodgers ' show; it's all meat and potatoes, not champagne and caviar.
