Product Description

Recorded in Montreal, Quebec in November 1981, when Queen was arguably the biggest hard rock band in the world thanks to their string of chart-topping singles and LPs (culminating in the previous year's THE GAME), QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL captures the band in their full prog-pop glory. All of the hits and a strong handful of fan favorites are here, performed with impeccable skill and surprising, almost punky, energy: The opening "We Will Rock You" is taken at nearly twice the studio version's tempo. A DVD version of QUEEN ROCK MONTREAL adds the band's set at 1985's Live Aid concert.

This is an aggressive Queen live set with with first 10 or so songs played at breakneck speed. The DVD commentary offers explanations for this (the gigs were one-offs, and there was friction between the band and the filming crew). The fast and furious playing is great to hear from a band who are sometimes criticised for being too precise. The guitar playing and drums sound great, but are sometimes a little rushed as a result.

The singing however is amazing. Freddie's voice seemed to get rougher from 1980 to 1986 (maybe as a result of smoking), but here it is perfect - clear and liquid, yet slightly frayed around the edges.

The highlights are "Let me entertain you" for it's sheer pace and aggression, "Killer Queen" for the variations on the vocal, "Keep Yourself Alive" (which unlike all the other songs is played at something closer to the pace of the original recording), the best rendition of "Love of My Life" that I have heard, and the two tracks from "Flash" (which are missing from the DVD).

The reason for the 4 stars is that despite all the band's efforts, there is so little interaction with the crowd.

You have to remember when listening to this fantastic album that there are only four guys on stage playing absolutely everything themselves here which just doesn't happen these days. That would change from the next tour onwards with the introduction of a keyboard player to allow Freddie more time to run around the stage and interact with his audience. First off, the musicianship is outstanding on this release as is the sound quality. It really does sound like it was recorded yesterday - and what a novelty to have a full live version of Flash and The Hero! But what I have always loved about Queen's visit to Montreal is the sheer power of Freddie Mercury's voice. Too often live artists cop out on the high notes but not here - check out Somebody To Love to see what I mean. Fred really goes for it on these songs (which Brian and Roger even mention in the audio commentary of the DVD). Anyone who doesn't 'get' Queen should buy this disc to see what all the fuss is about. Forget any preconceptions you might have about the band and really listen to this concert. Who else puts on a show like this? This is the last concert Queen played as a foursome, they were at their peak of worldwide popularity with recent number one hits in Britain and the USA and Hot Space had yet to rear its well intentioned though ultimately misguided head. Simply wonderful. Sure Milton Keynes was a terrific gig but you can tell they band are a little frazzled after two years of non stop touring and were ready for a break. So if you really want to see Queen on fire then look no further than Montreal.

I have been waiting for this album for a very long time because I am a big fan of Queen and a bigger fan of Queen live. And Queen Rock Montreal is really worth buying. The sound is fantastic, like it was recorded last week (the drums, in particular, sound amazing). If you buy the album on CD, you'd better buy one of the two DVD versions too.

Doubtless you will be thinking of buying both the CD and the DVD of this gig. Avoid the DVD at all cost! Considering this gig had been properly filmed etc and presumably the audience aware, it's a real disappointment. You sense that both Freddie and Brian get annoyed at the lack of audience participation on a number of occasions. I found it a real drag and a tad embarrasing to watch especially compared to the Milton Keynes gig barely 6 months later in June '82. Fair play, I'm so used to that album and film, but the whole vibe about that really encapsulates Queen with an audience giving all they had! If you are familiar or indeed grown-up on Live Killers, Queen on Fire and Wembley '86 steer clear of Montreal. I would have loved to have had Live Killers re mastered with the full intro section from Montreal. That has always annoyed me. The beginning of a Queen gig was nothing short of trouser wetting for me! Anyway, I digress.... The CD is fine, buy it, you wont be disappointed, but Queen on fire is the one!

Listen, save your money this is possibly a gig too far.. or near Milton Keynes. Lets have something from '77 or '75 next.
