The Miracle is a 1989 album by Queen. It was the band's twelfth studio album, recorded as the band recovered from guitarist Brian May's marital problems and vocalist Freddie Mercury's HIV diagnosis (which was, though known to the band, not publicised at the time). Recording started in January 1988 and lasted 12 months. The album was originally going to be called "The Invisible Man", but three weeks before the release, according to Roger Taylor, they decided to change the name to The Miracle. The striking cover art utilised then cutting-edge image-manipulation technology to combine photographs of the familiar faces of the four band members into one morphed Gestalt image, in line with their decision to dispense with individual credits and simply present their music as the product of Queen; the back cover went a step further with a seamless regiment of the bands' eyes. The album reached #1 in the UK, in Austria, Germany, in the Netherlands and Switzerland, and 24 on the American Billboard 200 chart. The Miracle was the band's penultimate album before the death of Mercury in November 1991. Allmusic would name it as Queen's best album of the 1980s, along with The Game.

I'm now revisiting the Queen albums again. This has all the hits from their final 80's album - breakthru, the miracle, invisible man, scandal and the wonderfully heavy I want it all. However, its the non-hits that I really love on this album. I especially love Rain must fall and think that Was it all worth it could have been another hit.
Well worth buying as it still sounds fresh today even though it's over 20 years old!
