TOP 500 REVIEWERon 18 August 2017
This special edition of the album 'Barcelona' was released in 2012, and is a pop, opera, cross over album, the original was recorded in around 1988 by the late Freddie Mercury front-man of the British rock band Queen and the legendary operatic soprano Montserrat Caballe, who Freddie idolized. This special edition album features a live 80-piece symphonic orchestra and percussion rather than synthesizers and drum machines, which I’m sure Freddie would have loved, with all the sweeping cascading musical drama! Sadly this was Freddie’s final solo album back in the day away from Queen and he said that Barcelona was one of his proudest moments. It all started in the late 80's with creating a song for the 1992 Olympic Games held in the Spanish city Barcelona – Monsterrat’s birthplace. The pair then worked separately on songs for the full album and it all turned out really rather well with pitch-perfect soaring vocals and beautiful harmonies.

Essential part of Freddy's legacy......had not listened to it all til this year which is a crying shame because Im a big Queen fan....... Really good record which takes you back - angelic and unique even though it admittedly sits more comfortably in the pop world than it does in the classical
