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..Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I prefer the rock material, and the 80's albums had less in them. Still, compared to their previous effort (A Kind of Magic) this album is very good. Read morePublished 12 months ago by Pat
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!Published on July 16 2004 by Reijo Piippula
