Some people say that Innuendo was great because it was Queen's swan song - perhaps so, and perhaps not. The album is very poignant, and to fans, very sad. Yet, I feel that Freddie's approaching death, or desperation, may have been a factor that really tightened the unity that was Queen.
I was checking out some reviews of Queen albums today, and saw an interesting review that said that Innuendo was rather rough, relaxed and not well arranged enough. It's up to the individual judgment to decide that. I'm no musical expert, and I admit that I rely on other people's insights in order to study the musical structure of the songs. Yet, to me at least (and to many other people), Queen really did bring it and reached up there with this album. To say that it is not so is too careless a remark.
Innuendo greets the listener with a furious intensity. Mercury's vocal is clearer than ever in this album, with an incredibly high head voice. This song traces back to the non-repetitive epic numbers featured often in the 70s albums and once in the Miracle (Was It Worth It - the most wondrous 80s song). The purcussion and the Spanish guitar are striking.
I'm Going Slightly Mad is certainly very bizarre - both in melody and little sounds that accompany. Yet, this song is one of my personal Queen favorites and certainly its music video is the best of Queen except Save Me and These Are the Days of Our Lives. The vocal is haunting and low, and the bass, simply gorgeous - I go mad listening to it.Read more ›
Some people have said that this is a dark album. I find it to be very uplifting! A few of the songs are really reflective, but the overall feel of the album is something like, "Don't let it get to you!" The only song I don't like very much is "The Hitman". The rest are just crazy good. I see one reviewer doesn't like Delilah. Well I think that's one of the strongest songs on the album. Go figure. The vocals on it are hot! It's a love song about his cat. I read that Freddie lived alone with lots of pets. He loved his cat. Really touching if you ask me that he could find the love in a simple animal. You really get the feeling that he was making the most of his life.
I just love this album so much. If you consider yourself even a mild rock fan, you have to buy this.
Now the asterix, amazon, has become incredibly slow and so have their sellers. I strongly suggest you get this album, but with another company unless you're willing to wait a few weeks for something that used to be delivered within three to five days.

Definitely the best of their last three, and possibly the best since The Game. My only complete dislike is Delilah, and I'm not too crazy about "Ride the Wild Wind: and... Read morePublished 3 months ago by Pat

The album starts of the 90's with style and should be counted as one of the best Queen albums and up there with the best of the decade. Read morePublished on Aug. 30 2010 by Ben Nicholson
Why would Queen "edit" down these tracks? I've heard them and they are obvious. I prefer the 1991 original cd as it does not fall into the "loudness war" and the songs are full... Read morePublished on Aug. 23 2010 by The Dude
This is a fantastic album. Great music often comes from the extremes - either from the depths of sorrow or the heights of joy. Read morePublished on Aug. 31 2005
Queen's "Innuendo" is quite boring album. The only tracks I like are "Innuendo" which is quite a heavy apart from chorus which is quite relaxing (you can be... Read morePublished on July 16 2004 by Reijo Piippula
