    Released contemporaneously with a Queen "reunion" album that found the surviving members collaborating with former Bad Company singer Paul Rodgers, KILLER QUEEN features a passel of younger artists paying their respects to Freddie Mercury and company. While there's a wide variety of entrants in the build-your-own-Queen-song contest, from veteran roots-rockers Los Lobos to young neo-soul waif Joss Stone, many of these tracks stick surprisingly close to the originals. Hearing pop-punks Sum 41 and power-poppers Rooney deliver note-perfect versions of "Killer Queen" and "Death on Two Legs" respectively, one has to assume that Queen's elaborate, painstakingly created templates just seemed too perfect to disturb. Closing things out, the all-female quintet Antigone Rising adds a wry gender-bending twist to "Fat Bottomed Girls," nodding to the broad sense of camp that was always at the heart of Queen's approach.
