Anyone check out Brians website today?
someone mentioned about The Call being on the new album. Brian said it was worth thinking about.
I think this would be a great idea. remember, it probably wouldn't be released in its current form, the speech would probably be replaced with another verse, and then whatever after that. i think it will be interesting to see what they can do with it. i doubt very much they will stick the old studio version on the CD. it will almost certainly be re-recorded.
I must say, I actually like The Call very much. When I first heard it I thought it was easily the best of the 46664 tracks. Red Special sounded great as always, and there's nothing wrong with the music overall, IMO. And since English isn't my first language, I don't really mind the lyrics (which seem to be the problem for many of you).
But still, I don't think it would be a good idea. The Call was perfect for the 46664 cause, but let's leave it to that. QPR is "the new thing".
I like that song but I wouldn't listen 'The Call' on new QPR album.
The Call was recorded during 46664 sessions and I hope we will see the '46664' studio album one day including that song on track list.
It does belong with the 46664 stuff. But when is it gonna surface? Only a loose copy got banded about recently because we have such nice QZ'ers! Apart from some of the speech bits, I could really see a rocker replacing it like a Freddie sounding vocal. Ah well...
I like this song. The music is cool and the political lyrics are nothing groundbreaking but still fab, especially in 2007.
A eventual participation of the song on the new album is a great opportunity to spread it 's message's to even more people, than as part of the 46664 project.
Every UN poverty report is the prove that we still need such songs with a social critical content. It's one little step/atempt to make this world a better place for all individuals.
I like this song too - I think it really rocks and still has that 'Queen' sound. This, Say its not true and Invincible hope are all great songs. Whilst the other two are more general, The Call is definitely more suited to the 46664 event. If it was rerecorded with more general lyrics rather than the rant it could be good but I doubt they would do it
I think the 4 46664 songs (including Amandla) should stay as their own event - now confined to history.
I love this song. the call is a great rock song with all Queen(brian) elements. But i think it shouldn't be part of Queen+PR album... maybe as a b-side(no because doesn't have the quality to be on the album, but because the cd should have just Queen+PR new songs.)
I hope not.
I want the new album to be 'new', not to be a bundle of all the recent Queen-ish material floating around. 'The Call' and 'Say It's Not True' are associated with the 46664 Mandela thing and should not be mashed into the new album.
'Take Love' and 'Hammer To Fall' are the only heard tracks I would hope to hear on the new album. Take Love is a new creation from the Q + PR merger and is perfect for the new album. Hammer may not be new but the slow version is very unique from the original version and While I know May introduced it back during his last solo tour, I think it's true perfection is how it fits with Paul's voice so well and so it would be a nice throwback track for the new album to have.
Besides, isn't 'The Call' pretty weak, and VERY weak for Queen's standards?
