It takes a handful of artists that never would have appeared together in concert or on an album, hands them each a Queen song, and allows them to go to town. The end result is a creative compilation of some Queen classics. Best on the CD is the haunting rendition of "Who Want to Live Forever," sung by Breaking Benjamin. This is probably the best track of the CD, along with Constantine's version of "Bohemian Rhapsody." Constantine stays true to the style of Queen (his voice sounds a little like Freddie Mercury's) and manages to pay great respects to the song and Queen itself. Also nicely done is Joss Stone's "Under Pressure." She gives it a bluesey, soulful tone. Overall, this CD is excellent. The only thing missing, in my opinion, is "We Will Rock You," and "Somebody to Love."
