Having seen the west-end show a couple of times now, I couldn't wait for the soundtrack... and I wasn't disappointed. Fantastic!
What is particularly nice is that it was recorded live not in a studio, and the audience cheers help to capture some of the vibrant atmosphere of the show. Also, leaving in some of the dialogue puts the songs (especially those with lyric changes) into context with the story.
Queen's music lends itself very well to musical theatre - being very "dramatic" in itself - and the performances by Tony and co certainly do it justice.
My advice is to go and see the show (anyone who loves the music of Queen and the humour of Ben Elton won't be disappointed), then buy this soundtrack so you can relive all the wonderful memories over and over again! Top Stuff!
