Customer Review

on 14 May 2014
The Freddie Mercury Album, concisely, is a good place to start for those that do not know Mercury's solo work, outside of the Queen canon. However, for those that are aware of his solo material may want to pick it up for the various mixes of several of the tracks on offer.

Nevertheless, this is where things start to get a bit nit-picky. Whilst the majority do not sound like the original recordings from the original albums, some of them sound all right (Let's Turn It On, In My Defence), but a few sound a little inferior to the original versions (Mr Bad Guy). Therefore, newcomers of Mercury's solo work may wish to invest in whatever albums they want first before making their own opinion about the versions present on this album.

Whilst it is an entertaining album, summing up Mercury's most recognisable solo work, the remixes for several of the songs may leave a bitter taste to the purists' mouth. However, for what it is worth, it is an enjoyable addition to anyone's album collection; particularly those that want to explore the solo work from one of the rock's most iconic singers.
