3 stars 100 words to review one track? That's a few too many. Oh well. Better pad it out, I guess.

Well, as you can expect, this is DT covering some Queen songs. The tracks themselves appeared together on the album Sheer Heart Attack so ti was logical to play them together.

Sadly DT don't do such a good job as they did with Stargazer. The songs feel too "dark" due to the metal style being transported into the song. The originals are much more "mellow-dramatic", and DT's style doesn't suit it, really.

Also, backing vocals are done by Mike. Whoops. They're not that bad... but compared to the backing vocals of the original version they are far less colourful.

Besides these problems, it's a good cover - LaBrie does well, as well as John. The last two parts are better than the first.

I knew this one would be quite difficult for them to pull off. They have done well, but not as well as you might hope. It's still good, though.

Staker | 3/5 |
