Format: Audio CD
With no touring worries and time to concentrate on recording in the studio, Queen produced a masterpiece of an album with 'The
Miracle'. The best thing about this album is the rip-roaring guitar that can be heard right the way through it. The first couple of tracks, Party and Khashoggi's Ship are fun rock songs with the band thinking back to the wild and infamous parties they held in the past! The miracle is a fantastic song with Freddie singing about how wonderful life is and how much you should appreciate it, obviously with hindsight you now can see that he wanted to enjoy the limited time he had left. Another song that can be linked to how freddie was feeling at this time was 'was it all worth it' in which he sings about all the pressures and excesses of being in queen and questioning whether it was all worth it or not, he eventually sings 'YES, it was a worthwhile experience!'
Other songs that i like on this album are the invisible man, breakthru (both containing great bass riffs from John Deacon)and i want it all, a great rock song written by Brian. This album is a must for Queen fans, it is what Queen are all about.

I remember buying this album on vinyl when it first came out and was so excited when I played it for the first time. 20 years later and with all my vinyl gone I finally decided to buy this album on CD. I hadn't heard it for years but my interest in Queen has grown again recently. I'd always been a massive Queen fan but had been too busy with University, getting married and having children to sit back and give them a good listen these last few years.
I'm now revisiting the Queen albums again. This has all the hits from their final 80's album - breakthru, the miracle, invisible man, scandal and the wonderfully heavy I want it all. However, its the non-hits that I really love on this album. I especially love Rain must fall and think that Was it all worth it could have been another hit.
Well worth buying as it still sounds fresh today even though it's over 20 years old!

Format: Audio CD
Freddie was already quite ill during the making of this album and the title was a nod to the fact that the band probably never expected to finish it, so much like "Innuendo" or "Made in Heaven" there are some fillers on it which reflect the best of the output available to them. That said, there were some better 'b' sides from the singles(e.g. "Hijack My Heart") which were mysteriously discarded from the album so you wonder how much material the band did have to juggle with at that point.
The singles clearly stand out, but special mention of "Was it all Worth it" is required as it is effectively Queen's autobiography.
Inferior to it's "Magic" predecessor and in many ways a better balance of tracks can be found on its successor (Innuendo) but still very representative of Queen's later output and worth a listen.

Format: Audio CD
Queen were very much a band that you either love, or hate. There's little room for indifference. For the fans, this album begins magnificently, with a blistering pair of tracks to open the account. The CD then rocks away into the four singles that one will find on Greatest Hits II, the rock of I want it all, the hope of "The Miracle", the comedy of "The Invisible Man" and the power of "Breakthru". The next few tracks do not dissapoint, though they are quite laughable in their way. "Rain Must Fall" is really a cheesy song...., and the 80's dance feel of "Scandal" is just that. Scandalous. Having said that, this song remains as one of the great Mercury vocal lines, and it stands alone as a good song on that strength. The soulful "My Baby Does Me" follows on, though good, the song could be seen as a simple time filler, before the superb "Was it all worth it?" at the end of which, Freddie sums up the entire Queen rollercoaster with the comment "It was a worthwhile experience" which sums this album up very well.

Although I have said before, several times, in my other Queen reviews that I prefer 70's Queen, this is their best album since Hot Space.
This album reintroduces a certain musical sophistication, lost with The Works and A Kind of Magic.

On this album,, there is the pleasing The Miracle, the superconfident I Want It All, the funky The Invisible Man, the hopeful Breakthru, the resigned Rain Must Fall, the coulourful Scandal, the laidback My Baby Does Me ,and what seems like an ode to the years the band performed and recorded, and a premonition that the end was near- Was It All Worth It?

This is no A Night at the Opera, but ultimately this is good music, and worth adding to your collection.

The miracle is, I feel, one of the greatest Queen albums they ever produced. The main reason I think this is because of the incredible variation between the songs and the fact that they are all different but great in their own ways. Songs such as I want it all and Breakthrough are timeless classics which will always be remembered, but I particularly rate some of the tracks such as The Miracle and Scandal, which although admittedly they did'nt fare that well in the charts, they are very enjoyable to listen to and again, you don't get bored of them, even after hearing them many times. Overall, it is a great CD and one which is unfairly underrated by some.
