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.Read more ›
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.
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...

This is truly one of best cds from Queen. It's proably one of their best since A Night At The Opera. This is one cd, you can't ignore.Published on Dec 6 2004
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!Published on July 16 2004 by Reijo Piippula
