5.0 out of 5 stars Queen's best album. No question. 21 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
There is no word in the English dictionary that accurately describes this work of genius. It is absolutely amazing, unbelieveable, incredible. I have almost every Queen album, this was the first one I purchased aside from the greatest hits, and it still reigns supreme over all the other Queen albums.
"Innuendo" (the song) is my favorite Queen song, it is amazing. It opens with a drum roll which makes you jump upon first listen. Freddie Mercury sounds better than ever before. The highlight of the track is the "wandering minstrel" guitar interlude beginning at 3:16, it starts out in 5/4 time, then goes into 6/4 after a couple of choruses. Absolutely amazing. "I'm Going Slightly Mad" is a humorous track, which is somewhat Noel Coward-ish. "Headlong" is an excellent rocker, will please metalheads everywhere with its heavily distorted guitar riffs and excellent solos. "I Can't Live With You" is a fantastic song, with great lyrics and instrumentation. "Don't Try So Hard" features one of Freddie Mercury's ultimate vocal performances, absolutely beautiful, will bring tears to some eyes, no joke. Roger Taylor must have been the primary force behind "Ride The Wild Wind," as his drums really stand out on this fast, heart-pumping track. "All God's People" is classic Freddie Mercury, with its complex, multilayered vocals ala "Somebody To Love" or "Bohemian Rhapsody." Next is the haunting track "These Are The Days Of Our Lives," a song about looking back on childhood and enjoying life as an adult. This song was also the last music video filmed by Queen as a foursome with Freddie. "Delilah" is a cute, little ditty about Freddie's favorite cat of the same name. Then in charges "The Hitman," which rocks and reels us all like just like the album's earlier track "Headlong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking performances 8 Jun 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Anyone out there who is ill, feeling under the weather, or just passing the time away in a fairly non-descript manner should take this album onboard and digest. It's a testiment to Mercury's remarkable zest & work-ethic that he (together with the other three band members) was able to deliver such a stunning performance despite reportedly being so ill he could barely stand.
The range and power in 'The Show Must Go On' just knocks you sideways. Being Queen, there are silly songs, like 'Delilah' and 'Slightly Mad'. But there are also out and out rockers like 'Headlong' and 'The Hitman'. Then there are the ballads; the sublime 'Don't Try So Hard', the warm and sweet 'Bijou', and of course the hauntingly beautiful 'Days of our Lives'.
Despite it being Queen's 17th album, they still experiment with 'All Gods People' and 'Innuendo' The former being slightly reminiscent in style to 'Millionnaire Waltz' whereas the latter is another six and a half minute opus of a hodgepodge of styles. Performed by anyone else it would be ridiculous. But Queen, well, it's just 'magic' isn't it.
Eleven years on, and this is still the Queen album that gets loaded most often into my CD player. It's tragic, yet hugely uplifting & inspiring.
Even though all of this album is special, there is one particular vocal line in 'The Show Must Go On' which makes me well up with the sheer magnificence of it every time I hear it. You'll know it when you hear it.
On with the show...

5.0 out of 5 stars superb 13 Jan 2012
By markr TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent album, which saw Queen return to their very best. There are many fine tracks here, including the haunting ballad 'Those Were the Days of Our Lives, the magnificent and rousing 'Show Must go On' as well as the semi operatic 'Innuendo', which is a little reminiscent of the Prophets Song from A Night At The Opera (2011 Remaster).

There are no filler tracks - everything here is worthwhile, melodic, and at times quite rocking. Throughout Freddie Mercury was in very fine voice indeed. A great album, recorded towards the end of Freddie's time, and a splendid record of his genius.

Very enjoyable and highly recommended

4.0 out of 5 stars Strong finish to a remarkable career. 26 Jan 2007
Format:Audio CD
Innuendo is a strong album and is worthy of the special spot it occupies as the last Queen album completed during Freddie Mercury's life.

It isn't a truly great album, but it is better overall -- with a more complete identity-- than quite a few of its predecessors.

It also has an adventurous, almost questing, quality that is all the more remarkable when put in the context of Freddie's grave illness and the near-sure knowledge that this would be the band's last effort. The band try out much that is new and diverse idioms are introduced, such as the flamenco influences in Innuendo or the Noel Coward-frippery of I'm Going Slightly Mad.

The lyrics are also startlingly focussed. It is almost impossible now to disassociate the album from the unusual circumstances in which it was created, but there is an incredible poignance and steadfastness to the sentiments conveyed in The Show Must Go On and These Are The Days Of Our Lives. At times -- with the benefit of hindsight -- it is almost heart-breaking to listen to some of these songs.

Finally, this an outstanding testament to the vocal prowess of --for this reviewer anyway -- the single greatest rock singer we have ever seen. Brian May has spoken in the past about how at this stage Freddie was so ill that he barely had the strength to stand. And somehow, from that quagmire of terminal illness and despair, he was able to sing with such power, with such admirable optimism and courage that it is, frankly, unbelievable. There is something deeply riveting and moving about great strength being greatly tested, and there is no finer example than Freddie's superhuman effort here.
