It is among Queen's greatest albums. I can't find anything wrong with it. Every song was beautifully recorded, very rich, and an elaborate production indeed. It is a shame that Queen didn't take advantage of this anniversary. It would have been nice to have a 'special edition' of some sort released.

Yeah Birthday greetings to NOTW one of my favourite queen albums which gets a airing at least twice a week. It's such a diverse album with varying styles ( punk, latin, rock etc..) and some fantastic ballads namely all dead all dead, that song gets me every time and when brian starts playing the haunting solo i always turn up the volume to the max and it gives me goosebumps just fabulous.

Again echoing the sentiments of a anniversary edition i'm surprised there was no plan in giving this album the accolades it so richely deserves.

Well i'm off now to put on some music and listen to.............. have you guessed what it is yet!.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

till the end of time.

If the idiot who stole the original tapes from the archives gave them back to Brian... *rolls eyes*

Brian had already asked before for them in his website for some projects. Ah well.

yes,this is surely one of the better ones
from queen.
another fact is that this is the last great
queen recordings.
the follow up JAZZ was alot less.
the game sounds a lttle better as jazz.
hot space is awful.
the works is good but that’s it.
too much synthesizers and a short album.
a kind of magic way back on course.
THE MIRACLE is queen at their best in the
80’s.
it almost matches queen in the 70’s.

This is the album that got me hooked on them in 1977 and I've been a huge Queen fan ever since. 30 years of loyalty to the royalty.

I think it's a great song. I don't care about the innuendo. If it said Get Down Make Pie I would like it the same. It's really a wonderful song.
