Great

Okay what’s with the hate on this one? This album is an entire bop and a solid pop rock record! Certainly very underrated, the track list is concise and parallel to itself in the sense that every song goes with itself.

Color: Orange
FAV TRACKS: Who Wants to Live Forever, Pain is So Close to Pleasure, A Kind of Magic, One Year of Love, Friends Will Be Friends, Princes of the Universe
LEAST FAV: Gimme the Prize (Kurgan’s Theme)

This is a lot better then people give it credit for. There are a few slogish tracks here and there but for the most part it's a rather collective, if not incoherent collection of tracks, with some even battling for the crown of 'best' Queen track (i'm looking at you Who Want to Live Forever you beautiful bastard). Give it a shot, it may surprise you.

Favorite Jams: Who Wants to Live Forever, Gimme the Prize (Kurgan's Theme), A Kind of Magic

Lest Favorite: Pain Is So Close to Pleasure

Álbum menos inspirado da banda e com pouca sinceridade. Apenas Who Wants to Live Forever e One Vision trazem um pouco de entrega verdadeira. O resto é resto mesmo.
