5.0 out of 5 stars One of THEIR best, One of THE best May 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Musicians review of this album... May 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
"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!

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..

2.0 out of 5 stars I Don't Want It!
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars Brian May gets to play again
For a band that long prided itself on 'no synthesizers', it was sometimes painful to hear their work on albums such as The Works and A Kind of Magic. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Not your older brother's Queen.
By the late 80's, Queen had evolved (some would say de-volved) into a slick Euro-pop band, recording in musical styles ranging from soul to calypso to guitar ballads to heavy rock. Read more
