Roger Taylor: Fun In Space (Elektra)

Jeffrey Morgan, Creem, September 1981

YOU ALL KNOW Roger Taylor: he’s the skinman who powers Queen from megamonster hit to megamonster hit. His credentials as a singer/songwriter on past Queen albums are second to none: 'Modern Times Rock 'n’ Roll,' 'Tenement Funster,' 'I’m In Love With My Car,' 'Fun It,' 'More Of That Jazz,' 'Sheer Heart Attack,' 'Fight From The Inside,' 'Rock It,' 'Coming Soon'–the titles say it all: these are the kind of rock 'n’ roll songs that keep people who construct pacemakers in business.
