Live Killers indeed!,
This review is from: Live Killers (Audio CD)
Way to go! This is the kind of album that a band should end a decade with. It contains pretty much all of the singles that they released, along with plenty of album tracks, all in a hard-hitting live package.
If you didn't ever get to see Queen live, then this is the next best thing. It's not as slick as the 'Live at Wembley 86' album, but the raw edge shows that Queen was first and foremost a rock band.
It starts with an unfamiliar version of 'We Will Rock You', and thunders through a number of very familiar tunes. It covers most styles that they ever played, and once we get towards the end of disk 1, we get their acoustic set. Just when you think it can't get better it does, and the hits keep on coming. Even once 'Bohemian Rhapsody' is out of the way, they still have more and more energy to give.
All of the band are on form here, with Freddie at his charismatic best, Brian rockin it up, Roger putting in a good vocal performance (Lead vocals on 'I'm in Love With My Car') and John quietly holding it all together.
Live Killers indeed!
