Definately one "for the fans" - either Queen fans or those who loved the film... or both!
Many plus points on this album that make it more than just a soundtrack - "The Hero" is as good a rocking Queen song as you're ever likely to hear, "Football Fight" is a catchy instrumental and you get a version of "Flash" without the dialogue that appeared in the single version. If you're a fan of Freddie's vocal talents then "The Ring" is also a must as he pushes himself to the limit exploring a full range, complete with layered harmonies. Oh and Brian does a wonderful guitar rendition of "The wedding march" - great stuff!!!

a very underated film score and still one of the better ones.
Queen were perfect for this movie with their ability to write catchy rock anthems.
Brian May took the helm in this project and the title track (Flash) is one of his and the two hard rock tracks (The Battle Theme and The Hero) are pure Queen.
The rest of the band did contribute and Freddies "Football Fight" is an amazingly catchy instrumental as is "Vultans Theme"
Don't expect any Bohemian Rhapsodys or We Will Rock You's when you buy this but expect a film score and you will be very pleasently surprised

Flash Gordon (1980.) Queen's ninth album.
Following the release of Queen's first album of the eighties, The Game, the group recorded something totally different - something that, unlike that album, would be forgotten by legions of fans - The soundtrack to the 1980 film Flash Gordon. Honestly, who better would there have been to record a synth-heavy rock soundtrack to the film version of the classic comic series? Read on for my review of this album.
As I stated above, this is, by far, Queen's most underrated album. This may be due in part to the fact that some fans overlook it because it's a film soundtrack and not a regular Queen album. The people who overlook this one really are fools. For the album, the band creates a synth-heavy rock work that is unlike anything else they had ever recorded before or would ever record in their future. Although the album is divided into several tracks, it is really easiest to think of the release as a single work - all of the songs fade right into one another. Over the music is dialogue and sound effects from the film, so in addition to getting a bad ass synth-heavy rock and roll score, you, in a sense, get an abbreviated version of the movie. Admittingly, I wish the band had released a music-only soundtrack, but that is NOT reason enough to bash this release the way some critics have been. In the end, it's one of the band's most overlooked releases, and a damn good one, too.
This album, like other Queen releases, got remastered and reissued, and the record company put on a remix bonus track. Like other remix bonus tracks, this one is nothing special. Also, this album seems to be MUCH harder to find than the band's other albums, probably due in no small part to it never getting the proper credit. It needs better distribution.

Why didn't Queen ever do any other soundtracks apart from the Highlander one when they appear to be so good at them?. The musical style complements the film perfectly, and even though Flash Gordon is a getting on a bit as a movie, it's still a great film and the music is too.
There are some brilliant tracks on this cd, I love the "Flash" theme, and "The Hero" just kicks some, turn it up real loud!
Must check this out if your a fan of the movie, but especially if you like Queen.

Format: Audio CD
If you come to 'Flash Gordon' looking for songs you'll probably find it the worst Queen album ever released, with only opener 'Flash's Theme' and album closer 'The Hero' sounding anything like the traditional Queen song. Approach it with the open mind that this is a film soundtrack however and you'll find it stuffed with some great instrumental music from the band, ranging from the moody 'Execution of Flash' and the beautiful soaring vocals of 'The Kiss' up to the full-on rock of 'Football Fight', 'Vultan's Theme' and 'Battle Theme', stopping off at Brian May's signature guitar-layered version of 'The Wedding March' along the way. Being a soundtrack album there is some repetition of themes between certain tracks, and a few are rather sparse (obviously so as not to distract from whatever's happening on screen) but the decision to include dialogue extracts from the film helps fill these spaces and results in the album telling the story of the film as it unfolds. Great fun.
