This is one of the Queen's worst albums. The only good tracks are "I Want It All" and "Breakthru". Other tracks are quite boring!

Queen's previous album, "A Kind of Magic", was a return to form, and "The Miracle" continues that trend. This is a very good album, better (IMHO) than the albums they released in the early '80s. It is an extension and continuation of the styles they implemented in "A Kind Of Magic", which they would refine in their next album, the excellent "Innuendo".

As always, a Queen recording has something for everyone. Not so much as always, 1989's "The Miracle" begins the revelation (subtle at the time) that days are numbered and getting darker. The tours were over, Freddie's image was more gaunt, and much was done (including more facial hair than usual) to obscure the real person behind it all. Not a word was spoken about it, and otherwise, everyone acted the same as always.
Which is even more of a chilling thought. The unknown is always more provoking than the black and white. This was where Freddie's tragic (UNBELIEVABLY tragic) bout with AIDS started to really come into play. The next album, "Innuendo," would take all of this, including the depth of the music, to an even HIGHER level, though barely even thought possible. That does nothing to take away from the fact that atleast one "70's band," albeit for the worst reasons, flexed its biggest muscles in future decades.
"The Miracle" is epic. Plenty of music for all moods, from the obligatory party songs in the beginning (such as "Party"), to the confused confrontations with the idea of death ("Was it All Worth It"), and everything in between. Queen already had established themselves as a band that showcases emotion of the highest levels, and now that special talent would be put into overdrive. "Breakthru" starts with a wonderful trademark "Freddie Choir" but quickly breaks into a rushing, impatient, pressed song of just wishing that one thing would happen to make life seem worth living. Excellently written. "I Want It All" says the same message, but more blatantly. In retrospect, it's easy to see from this music, that Freddie felt short on time. That's just too depressing to dwell on.

"The Miracle" is an album that shows a more mature side of Queen than we have seen in the past. A very polished album, here we see them going back to a more american-ized sound which made for more pop/hook friendly melodies and basic sing-a-long lyrics/harmonies. However, they never lost their songwriting and flamboyant brilliance.
The album itself is more complete than the last two Queen releases (The Works, A Kind Of Magic) in that you can tell they really took time to make each track just right. Also, each track flows well into the next which makes the diversity in the album tolerable and enjoyable. Queen finally are playing as if they are comfortable with themselves.. writing and playing with a certain fun factor where they didn't have to prove anything to anyone anymore. They are were who they were, and if you don't like it, suck it!
Each tracks arraingements are strong, and the instrumentation is better and tighter than ever. The mixing and production is very clean and gives the whole aura of the album a 'mature' sound. The lyrics to these tracks are different to where they are all basic storyline lyrics... nothing too inspired other than by the premise of telling a make-believe story. Overall, it's a great pop/rock album full of diversity and great pop hooks
---Having said all that--- this was the first 'actual' Queen album I owned, and right away I loved it's diversity and coolness. Every road trip I take, it comes with me. It's fun to sing along to and definately inspires me as a songwriter in terms of melody and energy..
Try it with an open ear, and hopefully you'll enjoy it as much as I do!
All The Best, The AndyMan!

This album is fun to listen to. You won't much of the brilliance of their early work, but it's still a very good album. My favorites are the miracle (great video), and the hit I want it all. The album is a mixture of lite pop to rock. good pop include the solid breakthru and rain must fall, and the hard rock includes the second track and was it all worth it. The only song i'm not crazy about is the first track party, it seems a bit weak for an opener. All in all a good album from Queen

Queen is my favorite band but if this was their last album I would have been quite disappointed. With the exception of a few of the songs (I Want it All, Scandal, and Breakthru), this album is totally painful for me to listen to. The lyrics are completely uninspired other than "Scandal". People have creditted Brian's guitar playing on this, but there's nothing other than that section in the song "Invisible Man" that's memorable at all.
I'll first start with the songs I thought were good (nothing was great)...John Deacon saved the day on "Breakthru" with his classic funky bass slapping. The opening of "Breakthru" doesn't really work though and probably could have been saved for another track somewhere down the road, but maybe they thought this might be the only chance to use it since Freddie was dying. "I Want It All" is pure Queen rock, but doesn't quite rank up there with their great ones. "Scandal" is actually done with some emotion making you wonder if it's somewhat autobiographical.
Okay, now for the crap. For me, the opening two tracks "Party" and "Khashoggi's Ship" are nothing but loud and annoying filler probably Queen trying to convince their fans that yes we can still rock. Queen's at their best when they're sophisticated, even with their hard rock songs. Any band could have written those two songs and performed them just as efficiently as Queen, so there's nothing special nor sophisticated about them. "The Miracle" has good intentions that fall flat after the opening synth chords. The song comes off as pure pop cheese and there's no smooth transition from the first section of the song to the end ("The Time Will Come..."). It kind of just pops out of nowhere like..ummm..
