The shortest gig of all time!!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Live Magic (Audio CD)
I preface this by stating that I grew up with the music of Queen in the 70's and have always been a huge fan. That said, this is probably the most neutered live album i have ever heard. The dramatic editing techniques used here have destroyed any illusion that this is any real interpretation of Queen's swansong tour. There are places where whole sections of songs have been stripped away to keep the the running time down to one disc/lp. Not only that, but the production is just a little too smooth, a mistake which has often been made with live albums. Check out Live Killers, the We Will Rock You video from Montreal, Live at Wembley, all of which offer a much better insight into the real Queen experience. Leave this for what it was, a record company inspired attempt at keeping the back catalog moving during a quiet period from the band.
