5.0 out of 5 stars Queen's final hour. Final Showdown., 9 Sep 2005
This review is from: Innuendo (Audio CD)
Well this album was Queen's last. And i found the album heart warming and quite sad. My favorite track on the album is 'i'm going slighty mad' i felt like this was the closet thing to what Freddie Mercury was going through. Such a shame, he was a great vocalist, but as i review this i am not going on sympathy but by mere perfection. The album has it all. With great instrument playing and slighty different tunes which make this a winner. The title track would be my favorite record for Brian May's solo guitar play. Overall this album is class, Shame it was there last but it has to be checked out.

Brian May did not play the acoustic 'wandering minstrel' solo on the title track. It was a well known guitarist Steve Howe, guitarist with Yes.

Made In Heaven (1995) was the last album.

Last real album. Not the scraping of a barrel.

IMHO 'Made in Heaven' was cobbled together off-cuts and material left from other projects. Whilst important and possessing some gems it was never what I term a real 'Queen' album.

Towards the end Freddie just wanted to get as much singing recorded as he could; practically anything the rest of queen would put in front of him. So Made In Heaven certainly shouldn't be dismissed, as Freddie did have some input to it.
But no - it has to be said that Innuendo was Queen's true final album, and to be honest (with the possible exception of Made In Heaven) it's where "Queen" should have ended.

Of course no one can blame the others for wanting to go on making and playing music, but it should have been under a different name. Queen should have finished with dignity, rather than the pitiful limping on with other vocalists (border-line sacrilege) and squeezing out more and more Greatest Whatever albums. A shame.

But this is a beautiful and poignant album that saw Queen regain much of the fire and lustre they had lost.
