It really annoys me. Half the Queen fans I know can't stand The Miracle. Its such a great album and extremely enjoyable to listen to! It also has some of Queen's best production on it (along with Innuendo, MIH, and Works). The majority of its songs are uplifting/uptempo and has some great rockers which, for the life of me, I can not figure out their exclusion from "Queen Rocks". I.E. Was It All Worth It, Khashoggi's Ship, and Hang On in There. These reasons should be good enough for anyone to give it a chance! So someone else please tell me they love The Miracle as much as I Do???!!!???

Hi, Lookin' Divine In Good Ol' '89!
 
I hope you're doing fine. First of all, well, welcome to Queenzone! I hope you enjoy the community.

You don't need to worry, I'm sure a lot of people are going to side with you and express their fondness for the album. Many fans love it. If you read some of the threads about favorite albums and so on, and you happened to stumble upon any of my posts, you might know that "The Miracle" is the album I like the least, which doesn't mean, in any way, that I hate it or dislike it - I just don't enjoy it as much as the other albums!

Have a nice stay here and a great week!

Yara... do you ever get bad moods lol... always so upbeat and friendly. Would be funny seeing you tell someone to "fuck off" lol

ON TOPIC

Miracle is great. But like Yara said, they had much better albums... probably due to some weak forgettable songs like KS, RMF, MBDM, CT, Party, Scandal (imo). The hits make it still a good album though... kinda like most Q albums I suppose. For me only ANATO and ADATR are truly masterpieces in terms of Queen albums which I liked from start to finish.

I don't hate THE MIRACLE. But it's one of the QUEEN-albums I hardly listen to as a complete album, because it has so many (actually the most) of my absolute non-favourite QUEEN-tracks on it (Party, Khashoggis Ship, Rain Must Fall, Scandal, My Baby Does Me, Was It All Worth It, Hang On In There). There are QUEEN-albums which I like to listen to from beginning to end, but this album let's me skip a lot of tracks. For my personal taste (and I can only speak for myself) those "weak" tracks are quite boring and drag the album down. Even the B-sides from those sessions (Stealin', Hijack My Heart, My Life Has Been Saved) fall into the same category, I just can't enjoy them as much as most (or almost all) of the other QUEEN-Tracks.

Omg!!! I LOVE The Miracle! Personally I think its one of their best albums, I really enjoy it but I don't like "party" & "rain must fall" -way to Pop! I love all the other tracks particuallry I want it all & scandal & was it all worth it :)

 Next to Hot Space, the Miracle might be Queen's second worst album.

The Miracle was the first album I bought. It was summer, as it is now - so now I listen to it all the time.

I think it's the best album from the 1980's.

The Invisible Man ain't my favorite either, but I really like My Baby Does Me!

But of course... the first 5 Queen albums are the best - but The Miracle is one of my favorites after them...

Sorry but apart from I want it all, Breakthru and Maybe Hang on in there (criminally left off the original vinyl in favour of My baby does me) I really never listen to it.
I recently documented my least fav. Queen songs in the thread; "oh Freddie you shouldn´t have" -10 queen songs that don´t rock my world. I go into more detail there if you check it out - please don´t be offended - [img=/images/smiley/msn/teeth_smile.gif][/img] it´s all subjective.
