Before listening to this album by guitar legend Brian May and musical theater singer Kerry Ellis I was a bit hesitant. Being a rock fan and a not a great lover of musical theater I didn't know what to expect.

The album is a mixture of cover versions and original songs. If you're looking to hear Brian May's Red Special guitar you are probably going to love his version of Gary Moores Parisienne Walkways.  
As I pointed out I'm not a huge fan of musical theater and that style of singing. On saying that there can be no doubt after listening to this album of Kerry Ellis' singing ability and beauty of her voice.
Elvis' Can't Help Falling In Love is a particular high point for me as well as the lovely acoustic guitar intro played on Amazing Grace.

Conclusion: If you're expecting Queen then you're going to be disappointed. If you're expecting a Brian May solo album layered with guitar harmonies and hard rock riffs, again you're going to be disappointed.
If you enjoy a beautiful female voice with the elegant guitar work of a legend then you'll love this album.

Golden Days definitely deserves it's top 20 album chart position.
