There will always be the debate whether Queen were better before or after they took on the charts. Personally I prefer their earlier work however, I find them so easy to listen to. A great lead singer and tremendous guitar work for me, ticks all the boxes. 'Pain is so close to Pleasure' and 'One Year of Love' are very poor but the first half of the album is what was expected from Queen at this time.

It is however, the second half of the album that came from the film Highlander that shows Queen let loose and 'Gimme The Prize' is just great.

I find it hard to knock Queen, I'm not a fan but every time I dismiss them I hear a song and think, that's really good.

Regular readers of this column (lol etc) will probably draw the conclusion that I have somewhat of a downer on Queen's 80's recordings. Although past their creative peak, they could still knock out a decent tune; its just that the bad stuff got worse.

But lets begin on a positive step. 'One Vision' introduces the album, and neatly sums up what the rest of the album will bring, namely some rock and very 80's pop melded together. Its chiefly a simple if catchy rock riff though, so we're off to a good start. Then we have what I consider to be Queen's best 'pop' moment, the title track itself. Constructed around not 1 but 2 memorable bass lines, it deservedly went on to be one of Queen's biggest hits and probably established them as pretty much the biggest band on the planet at the time. But the stand out track for me on this album is not a household name. 'Gimme the Prize' is one for the proper rock fan, and is a stark contrast to most of the other songs on here. It's one of the all too rare occasions where Brian May is allowed to unleash some serious guitar mayhem, even making his axe sound like bagpipes at one point. Above all this you have Freddie bellowing some rather self aggrandizing lyrics, and if this song doesn't empower you and make you feel that you can go out and take on the world then nothing will. Seriously, if you like your heavier stuff and don't know this song, its well worth seeking out. The only other song that comes close is 'Princes of the Universe', which actually uses a very similar riff but doesn't work quite as well. Still, it gives May another chance to work out his frustrations on his fret board, which is always a good thing.

But...after these songs the rest of the album sounds rather limp.

I bought this after having watched "Highlander" on TV after so many years. I forgot how beautiful these songs were. Definitely a collectable must if you are a Queen's fan.My favourite? Gimme the prize! Enjoy.

What can one say but one of the best if not the best follow up albums to a previous album(The Works) ever. The opening track(One Vision) which was used as a regular concert opener just lures you in, now that for me is a Kind of magic in it self. If you are thinking of adding this release to your cd collection then believe me it won't sit around collecting dust.

This is Queens' 12th studio album released in 1986, 15 years after Queen first formed. This album is nowhere near as good as earlier, more creative albums such as Queen II and A Day at the Races, but still holds the original Queen sound close to its heart. The songs that stick out for me are One Vision, A Kind of Magic, One Year of Love, Friends Will Be Friends, Who Wants to Live Forever and Gimme the Prize. There are just a few songs that let the album down and knock off the 5 star rating.

The actual 2011 remaster edition comes in a nice new jewel case and the booklet has a few pictures etc. The sound quality is superb, as expected after I bought a few remasters of Queen albums before this one. The album also holds the extended version of One Vision, not the stupid Greatest Hits II version.

Just a great album by arguably the greatest rock band ever. If you are new to Queen - BUY IT, and if you know Queen already - BUY IT.
