5.0 out of 5 stars Great Album from the Best Frontman 14 Oct 2010
Format:Audio CD
Freddies first solo album is by far the best thing he ever realeased as a solo artist (not that there was a huge amount of solo stuff released during his lifetime). In fact in my opinion its better than most of the Queen albums from the 80s as the quality is more consistant throughout. Its similar to the more pop/dance stuff on Hot Space, but almost all the songs are great. Standouts are I Was Born to Love You, Your Kind of Lover, Love Me Like Theres No Tomorrow and Made in Heaven, although there isnt a duff song on the whole CD. But as an album its entertaining, light hearted and some great vocal performances from one of the best ever singers. Well worth getting hold of, as it was somewhat overlooked when it was released in the mid 80s. Some songs were included on later compilations but often remixed versions. This album is the best place to hear them as they were intended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mr Bad Guy 1985 CD/LP 1 May 2007
Format:Audio CD
If you are a Freddie fan then this is excellent.

Please don't be fooled like I was when I noticed that a lot of tracks from this album were on the Freddie Mercury Album... they are NOT like the original and in my opinion lack the punch and feeling of the tracks laid down on this excellent album in 1985.

This album is worth getting as part of your collection.

Howdy folks?
I grew up listening to Queen's greatest hits, but it was only when I grew up a bit and began listening outside of what I already knew that I began to find what I call musical 'gems'. The idea of a Freddie Mercury solo album always turned me off, because I thought it would be something like the campier parts of Queen but taken to the Nth degree. Essentially it is. I've grown to love those parts of Queen the most and hence I dig this album. However, one should bear in mind that this album is most definitely an acquired taste. The only instantly likeable song is 'Living on My Own', (and to musically-educated people, one might have noticed its many reincarnations by other artists); the other songs take a while to get used to, but eventually become well-loved. Most of the songs are great, with the worst being the title track, but don't expect to be able to win over your friends immediately, otherwise you might have a few awkward moments of sitting there saying 'This is the good bit...oh no, wait...yeah, this is it', and still being met with the stony-faced scepticism of your friends. If you want to recommend it to others, give them the album to listen to several times. You may find yourself listening the album a few times, too.
Overall, a corker, but certainly one that takes a while to get used to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A kind of Mercury Magic 20 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
Freddie's First solo outing, an album which was first going to be called 'Made In Heaven' but Freddie changed his mind, and changed it to Mr Bad Guy, Made In Heaven was of course later going to be the name given to Queen's disappointing last album, but this album is very good.
It has a few of my favourite Queen related songs on it, Love me like theres no tomorrow is quite an ironic song with Freddie's untimely departure and There must be more to life than this, these songs really bring out the best in Freddie, there are a number of really good tracks here, the reissuing of this on the Freddie Mercury Solo Collection has enabled me to listen to this, as it was previously deleted, and this is well worth its reissue, a truly great solo album, if only there could have been alot more solo albums. The original versions of Freddie's only Number One Living On My Own, debut heres, the way it should have been heared well worth listening to and should be in all of our CD colllections. Forget the latter day remixes.
This album won't rock you but it is a kind of magic from Mr Mercury and an essential purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Freddie.... 13 Mar 2014
By Cheekysheep TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Im a die hard Queen fan, not fanatical but a fan... A number of years ago (25 to be exact) a friend lent me this album on tape and I loved it blasting away in the car. Recently Ive been buying some of my old favourites, this was one of them, its really hard to come by so I tried Amazon and blow me there it was, a little expensive but a must have if you like Freddie... My collection is complete!

4.0 out of 5 stars Let�s Turn It On 5 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
This 1985 solo album by Freddie Mercury is a tribute to Mercury's talent. This mid-1980's album is different to the grand old rock opera era of the 1970's, but still has much to recommend it.
It has a strong hi tech -disco favour, which Queen specialized in during the 80's , including feel good dance songs, such as `Let's Turn It On', `I Was Born To Love You', `Foolin' Around', and `My Love Is Dangerous'.

There is the beautiful contemplative `There must be more to life than this' and `Made In Heaven' and the rollicking title track Mr. Bad Guy, together with rock ballad `Man Made Paradise'.

This album generated interest among Queen fans before it was released, with speculation of what Mercury's solo effort would entail, after a taste with the fantastic `Love Kills', the previous year.
