"Innuendo" was the last album released by Queen before Freddie Mercury died, and it was a fitting final album for him. "Made In Heaven" was released in 1995, 4 years after Freddie's death. Of the 11 songs on the album, 5 were previously released in other forms: "Made In Heaven" and "I Was Born To Love You" were originally on Freddie's "Mr. Bad Guy" album, and are included here with those same vocal tracks, but with Queen's instrumentation; "My Life Has Been Saved" was a B-side to "Scandal" from "The Miracle", but is slightly different here; "Heaven For Everyone" was originally recorded by Roger Taylor's band "The Cross"; and "Too Much Love Can Kill You" was previously released on Brian May's "Back To The Light" album (with Brian on vocals). But even though not all of the material here is new, all of the material is very good, and it's a great album. Not quite as good of an ending as "Innuendo", but a very fine piece of work nonetheless.

4.0 out of 5 stars The meaning of death Jan. 18 2004
Format:Audio CD
Yes, I love Queen's 70s. Yes, I love Innuendo like crazy. Still, this album is so worth buying... even if it makes you think of what more would have flown out of Freddie if he were only alive today.
The best song here, I think, is "I Was Born to Love You". Yes, it is a pop-style, yes it sounds like a solo rather than Queen, but it really reveals Freddie's undying genius and delivery.
A Winter's Tale, Freddie's last song, is of course beautiful. Others such as Let Me Live and My Life Has Been Saved are tear-inducing. When it gets to Mother Love, however, I sort of get angry... I understand this is posthumous album, but the production did not have to be indicative of the fact to this obvious state.
Just because it broke my heart again and again and again (and still now) I can't be insensitive to my never-ending assumptions - what if Freddie were still alive... what if? what if? I keep asking and get sick of it.
In all, you will not regret buying it, but you will be really sad. And this album was made to do exactly that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Takes you Away Feb. 7 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those albums to play when you are feeling nostalgic and pensive. It is gloomy, not totally, cause the trax from Freddie's solo album(on here) punctuate the melancholy. Made in Heaven(the song) sounds like its name, for it rises to such a spiritually transcendent level, you could almost mistake it for schmaltzy, but I adamantly proclaim it is NOT SUCH!-it may be the grandest they have ever sounded. It is so grand it will knock you off balance when you first hear it.
Too Much Love Will Kill You has wonderful, wayworn lyrics, that fit so well on their swansong album. It is both sparse and elegant, and will touch those who have truly lived.
You Don't Fool Me is Freddie and Brian making love and laughing with their backs against the wall. Freddie is doing what he did best-showing his beauty and determination in a carefree chantuese sort of way, while Brian chimes in with a glittering and glorious solo which seems to be a homage to his singer(like a lot of this cd).
The second Its a Beautiful Day is the band letting out their pent up anguish, and pulling out all stops and letting out a ten on the frenzy/crunching gothic scale that harkens back to their trenchant style. They intertwine the vocals as a sonic device, complimenting Brian's howling guitar, while Roger's drums revel like pounding fury. This track is complex, yet tribal and primal, and is another virtuoso piece to this tribute to Freddie. Listen to this song LOUD, you will hear something different every time you play it.
These are just 4 songs, but the whole lp seems so cohesive its amazing, considering the group had to patch it together. It may have helped that they always recorded in bits and pieces at a time, so maybe this hurdle(Freddie gone) was weirdly moot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Melancholy, poignant, and... June 24 2002
Format:Audio CD
...quite frankly, so depressing at times that you'll be wondering why you love it so much. Because this is one of Queen's best albums, probably my favourite one. Every single song is stunning - the vocals (mostly Freddie, singing with such incredible power and emotion that it's hard to believe the majority of these songs were recorded just months before his death) are amazing, the music is fabulous. Two songs Freddie recorded on his solo album, Mr Bad Guy, appear on this CD (Made In Heaven, I Was Born To Love You), and with added background material from Roger, Brian and John, they really do improve. Heaven For Everyone, which was originally a song by The Cross with Freddie on vocals, is reworked into a Queen song, and is one of their best. Too Much Love Will Kill You was released as a solo single for Brian in the early '90s, but the Queen version is pretty damn good too.
The rest of the album consists of rock ballads at their best. The emotional Mother Love, the gospel-esque Let Me Live, the upbeat My Life Has Been Saved, the achingly beautiful A Winter's Tale, the powerful It's A Beautiful Day... all are exceptional tracks. You Don't Fool Me is a much-looked-down-upon dance track, but one I happen to enjoy.
And really, it gets less melancholy the fiftieth time you hear it...

2.0 out of 5 stars Made in Heaven?
This album has only two great tracks "Let Me Live" and ever green "Heaven for Everyone". The rest of the tracks are too basic rock!
