Yesterday I've bought the last album to complete my CD collection. To be honest, I don't like the soundtracks at all but as a real fan, you want your collection to be complete.

While listening to the CD I heard a lot of non Queen-instrumental sounds, like synthesisers etc. Did Queen make these sounds by themselves? Or had they support from other sound engineers.

Had anybody ever saw the film? I consider to watch it soon. Let me now if it's worth to spend my time with watching the movie.



I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

heh, it's a laugh. I liked it but because of it's very comical effects..and Max von Sydow too.

But it's good to hear Queen...and one of the Hawkmen says 'Who wants to live forever!?' so it's all good. :)

Maybe if it´s not ´your´ album, just play it and do something else (at the same time, but in the same room!:P) Maybe the songs are to much the same for you... (You have to admid that that wedding march is cool?)

I think the whole album is by Queen. can't remember if there is any incidental music in the film not by them. I remember some clips of Brian saying that they recorded at least some of it while watching the movie on a big screen in the "old fashioned way".

I like the album as you can listen to it and actually visualise the movie as you go (once you've seen it of course!!!). I like the film too, although it's obviously dated etc.

Check out Brian's soundtrack to a film called Furia. Haven't seen the film. it's by a French director and I think it's only been released over there. It's a shame because the music's good and Brian has said he loved the film (which is why he did the soundtrack). Here's a link to amazon.com: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004XQMM/qid=1079443193/sr=1-13/ref=sr_1_13/102-8650555-6754549?v=glance&s=music.
Hope that came out ok.

99.9% sure Queen recorded the whole album

The Hero is one of my fave Queen Songs ever - it rocks

Some great instrumentals on that album

Goes to show the boys can do that side of things and not jut the songs (lyrics and all)

Just like Furia - some great stuff on that

Some stuff is good (The Hero, Wedding March, Battle Theme, Vultan's Theme, Football Fight), some stuff is absolutely great (The Kiss) and the rest... I don't really like... Sorry, but can't honestly stand something like The Ring, just can't...

I am obviously not a real fan then.

It's great! The Kiss - a real Freddie song! And the rockers Battle Theme and The Hero are fantastic. And a REAL Brian classic with The Wedding March. Who else could play that?

I thank you all for your answers. Well, maybe I have to listen to it a few times more to see beauty of it. I will surely listen to The Hero, yesterday I don't came so far (it's the last track, isn't it?).

Bob The Shrek.. You may not own all the albums, but you've posted more than 2000 messages more than I did, so to me you're a real fan!!

I like the album! "Football Fight" and "The Hero" are awesome.

I recommend you to watch the movie. It's part of your education. :)

funny that because flash gorden is all i need to complete my collection and i have been debating wether or not it's worth it (yes all Queen songs/albums etc should be worth it i know)...and it sounds like there's some good stuff on there so i will probably buy it in the near future ;D

This was the first Queen album I ever had back in 1986. I love 'The Hero' and when taken in context it's a brilliant piece of work. You can see the others got bored and left Brian too it though! I might even go and put it on now, I haven't heard it in ages!

Oh I thought this was about that bad porn film 'Flesh Gordon'.

And no, no Queen songs in that film. Although it would've been interesting none of the less.

"The movie is really good for some laughs, too. ;^)"

What are your top 3 funny moments in that flick?

Here are mine:
1.Every time Vultan says "DIIIIIIVE!!!"
2.Flash getting hit in the head with the steel ball thingy.
3.Tim Dalton's costume. ;)
