5.0 out of 5 stars The legacy of a legendary band-a masterpiece! Nov. 19 2006
By Customer from Quebec TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I don't think many bands finish their carreers with an album they can be proud of. More than that- a true masterpiece! Queen have done just that! When I first listened to it I thought Freddie's illness was a stupid rumour. Sometimes tragic events lead to the creation of great pieces of art. This is Queen's darkest album and yet it is so enjoyable. Innuendo starts strong and reminds of Queen of the seventies (with a nice accoustic guitar work from Yes's Steve Howe contrasting Brian May's heavier solos). Monumental start of the album. I'm Going Slightly Mad is a beautiful theatrical song. I can't live with You, Headlong and Hitman are classic Queen rockers. The only weaker song on the album is Delilah, about Freddie's cat. The Show Must Go On is one of the best songs written by Queen and sung by Freddie (hats off to Brian May -it was his idea, he wrote the music and the most of the lyrics). Overall- a stunning, deeply emotional farewell album from one of the most popular and unique bands on Earth- they have exceeded the popularity of The Beatles in their own country according to recent polls!

5.0 out of 5 stars What Queen left to us Jan. 17 2004
Format:Audio CD
We can ask ourselves a question: if Freddie Mercury were still alive now, would Queen have continued? Or would they have broken up like the Beatles? Which one is more heartaching - watching your idol and legend step down from the pedestal and break up, or watching your idol die?
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Stars with an asterix June 21 2006
Format:Audio CD
I love Queen, and this album the last that Freddie Mercury performed on is a beautiful and quintessential piece to any Queen collection. It's a well known fact that while working on this album Freddie Mercury was basically dead, barely able to stand most times and felt exhaustion and general illness during the recording of this album. But Freddie lives up to the nickname "Ready Freddie", the man stepped up and belted out lyrics, gave all he had left within him for this album. Although, Freddie did die, this album shows the power and determination Freddie had, with his booming voice. However, Queen is Queen, Freddie Mercury, Brain May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon genious musicians in their own rights they brought all they had with this album. A beautiful farewell to a Rock God, as well as the end of an era in music.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't sit on the fence; buy this album!!! May 11 2004
By Bryan
Format:Audio CD
I had never bought a Queen album before. I didn't know anything much about the band except for their hits and I had heard quite a bit about the enigmatic Freddie Mercury. Well I've been trying to branch out a bit lately so I just randomly bought a bunch of Queen albums last week. The first one that I listened to was "A Night At The Opera". Very good album. I liked it a lot. Then I put "Innuendo" in. It blew me away right away. Wow. I own a lot of albums. I have a CD collection of about 200, and I don't have very many bad albums in my collection at all. So this means a lot when I say this: I already consider this to be one of the best albums I own. When I learned that this was released the same year Freddie died, it made it even more powerful. I mean here you have this guy who's near his death bed giving one of the greatest rock performances ever.
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.

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 more

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 more
