I have it and I like it. It's a good alternative to the original. I'll give it some time to fully appreciate it. I wasn't a huge fan of the 1988 album at first (I didn't not like it, either, it just wasn't my thing), but I did come to like it a lot and think it's a jewel in the Queen/Solo catalogue. On the first few listens, I was mostly trying to hear the differences, rather than taking it in as its own album. It's hard to form an deep opinion when every few seconds you think, "Oh, that's new!" I do the same with remixes and live versions, so have to let them sink in after a time.
I just don't get why people are angry at it. The original is still available, so if you don't like the orchestrations, nothing's stopping you from putting the earlier CD on or recommending to friends that they buy 1988 edition and not the new one.
