I love the whole album. Even You Don't Fool me has grown on me. And although the final two tracks aren't the most interesting to listen to, it's nice to know that it was a send-off for Freddie.

Doesnt make me sad, Mother Love is a superb song. Its not the best album by a long shot, I think most fans thought they were gonna get ALL new vocals and not just a lot of re-working. I heard HFE on the Shove it LP. Give me Hot Space any day of the week.

Oh, I still Brought it on Cassette, CD and White LP though!!

i think My life has been saved was recorded years earlier (someone will post soon to tell us exactly when)

Mother Love - a beautiful song and a winters Tale are my favourites.

My Life Has Been Saved (written by John) was the B-side to Scandal, so it was from 1989.

The best song is IMO Let Me Live. I think also it's the best song in the Queen catalog : the symbol of the 3 singers, a lot of Queen trademarks, very emotional and with a superb solo. Great.

BTW, MIH is my favorite album, alongside with SHA.

I think "A Winters Tale". That song really does something for me.

It's such a fantastic album! It's #2 on my list of favorite albums... Right behind Innuendo. :P

The reworked IWBTLY is infectious!! And finally seeing a Queen video to support it was fantastic.
I also liked the IABD reprise. I always turn it up loud when Roger's drums kick in, and love the "heavenly" way Freddie sings, "Yeah..."!

Totally agree.

Goes to show that Queen worked way much better as a band, rather than by the original ideas of individuals.

You Don't Fool Me is my fav.

Can't understand why some people diss that tune. It's an excellent song and probably one of Queen's best/

Why don't play Queen (Roger and Brian) anything from this album live(except for TMLWKY but that's Brian's solo version), for example at the 46664 concert?

There are some great songs on the album to play live, i.e. IWBTLY and MIH...

Made In Heaven is the best song. But the whole album is brilliant.

If it's possible, I feel closest to Freddie, quite eerily so, during It's A Beautiful Day. I LOVE IT, LOVE IT, LOVE IT! I suspect that, given 2 contrasting versions of that song on the same CD, that they are both there to paint the 2 very different sides of Freddie's personality, which we all (and his bandmates, especially, no doubt) miss dearly.

During IABD, I literally get chills all over my arms & neck along with a great big inexplicable grin on my face (chirping birds? come on! it's HILARIOUS!!!). I feel like I can open my eyes and see him there grinning back at me from the piano, and for that, I feel there's no other song like it. Undeniably a masterpiece. I'd even go so far as to say they'd never have released a "swansong" CD like MIH without that track. That's the one that's indispensible on MIH, in my opinion. Thank god & the other regal three for it.
