It would be really churlish to give this, the final Queen album proper, anything less than 5 stars. A truly moving collection of some of the saddest and yet at the same time the most hopeful Queen songs ever written. We can only guess at the emotions that must have been running through the guys when this was recorded.
Admittedly the album does feature several songs that appeared on band member's solo albums before this recording, but I would say without hesitation that it is in this form they sound the best. "Too Much Love Will Kill You" really benefits from Freddie's strong vocals and "Made in Heaven" sounds much better with the magnificent orchestra-sound it gets here. Of the "new" tracks the outstanding one in my humble opinion is "Let Me Live", featuring the vocals of Freddie, Roger and Brian it is just a lovely celebration of this fantastic group.
A fantastic album, full of emotion, full of feeling and full of great songs.

Queen in my opinion and the greatest and most important band ever to grace our planet. No other vocalist in a band could come close to Mercury's playful voice. Brian May's great guitar solos and catchy poppy tunes, were always my favourites. If I needed a lift it was always 'Somebody To Love' in the cassette player, and without any exception, the task was done. But that's what Queen was all about. Doing their job, getting it done and going home. But they just did it so well. And I always loved the playfulness of them, the fact they felt they could do anything. So when I layed my mits on Made In Heaven, which I sort of knew was going to be pretty sombre anyway, being released 3 years after Mercury's death, I was very cautious even looking at the titles (Let Me Live, My Life Has Been Saved, Too Much Love Will Kill You...), but I took it home with me instead. And it is different. This is Queen, but not quite what you know. Those aspects are there...but there's more. Much more. And now I can safely say that this is the best album that Queen ever made, and is one of the best albums of all time.
You could always tell Freddie was a worker...up until his dying days he was singing whatever was put in front of him, when he could, as his disease held him down so much it was awfully difficult. But when he sang, boy did he sing. Just listening to the likes of 'Heaven For Everyone' and 'Too Much Love Will Kill You' just show that Mercury was giving it his all, right until the end. You also knew that only death was going to stop this band.
The instrumentation throughout is stunning. 'It's A Beautiful Day' begins with strings and early morning birds chirping gleefully and the typical Queen piano, followed by the first Mercury vocal...

After writing a review of the preceding album 'Innuendo', it's hard not to connect the two together. The darkness that is apparent in 'Innuendo' still lingers here, but there is a new sense of hope that we only saw a climpse of in 'Innuendo'. With the title song 'Made in Heaven', Mercury hangs us in the balance between hope and despair. Like in 'Innuendo', Freddie reaches out to society, only here in a more direct way. 'Mother Love' and 'Heaven for everyone' is a critique of modern man, and the lack of true spirituality and morality within our age. But this critique is made far more meaningful in relating it to his own life, a tragic life. Yet despite of all the tragedy and all the pain within society and his own life, there is hope. And in the songs of 'My life has been saved', and 'A Winter's tale' (Freddie's last ever song), he points us towards this hope, a hope that is not found outside in society, but a hope that is found within. Such is the power of this album.

Firstly, I have to take issue with the ignoramus who wrote the product review for Amazon: this idiot has no idea what the hell he is talking about! To suggest that the remaining members of Queen may have made this last record as a last chance to 'cash-in' on Freddie is highly insulting and absolutely ignorant - he needs to do his research a bit better. This album was a labour of love (and I think the members of Queen have enough money in the bank anyway), and it was also Freddie's wish that his final recordings see the light of day. To be honest, ignorant and biased reviewers like this moron have always had it in for Queen and always probably will: they just hate the fact that this band is still loved so much by so many.

Secondly, and more importantly, the album itself. As a lifelong Queen fan, I would put this one up with Innuendo, A Night at the Opera and Sheer Heart attack. It is strong throughout. I won't bother to write about the story behind this album, as most people into music will already know its history. But if you still haven't bought this jewel of an album, just damn well do. It is a strangely uplifting album (considering the fact that it includes Freddie's final recordings): there is so much positivity and warmth emanating from it. It is all about life and love, and Freddie sings his heart out. Only on the sombre and heart breaking Mother Love do we hear Freddie sound a little less upbeat (and considering this was his final recording, who can blame the man?); but listen to the middle eight on this track and tell me you do not hear a dying man (who at this stage could barely even stand) sing from his very soul with every last drop of power and emotion his frail body contained. A beautifully haunting track from one of the finest singers this world is ever likely to hear.
