What do you think about Innuendo as an album and as a song too?
I love it. It's on my Queen top 3 list.

It's a very very interesting album... A lot of hot guitar work and many more sound contamination than in the past... Absolutely my favourite one from the 1982/1991 era!!!

It can't reach my best 3 because these positions are all occuped by the stuff from the seventies:

1 - A Day at the Races
2 - Queen II
3 - A night at the Opera/Sheer Heart Attack

The song is a masterpiece and it would be worth the price of the album all by itself!!! If you add something like "The Show Must Go On", "Headlong" and "Ride the Wild Wind", not buying it would be a crime!!!

Both overrated. Nothing real special. Queen tried to again spread their 70's wings with moderate results. There is no comparison with SHA, aDatR, the 2nd side of aNatO, or the black side of Q2.

I love Innuendo, the song and the album. I think it's a perfect Queen album.. has a little of everything.

I'm currently listening to an EP I produced.. "Innuendo Instrumental", with 7 tracks from the album in instrumental form from karaoke & 'The Eye' mixes. Great album instrumentally too :)

1. I'm Going Slightly Mad (Greatest Karaoke Hits) 4:22
2. Headlong (The Eye) 4:42
3. I Can't Live With You (The Eye) 4:38
4. Ride The Wild Wind (The Eye) 4:41
5. These Are The Days Of Our Lives (Greatest Karaoke Hits DVD plus restored outro) 4:14
6. The Hitman (the two tracks from The Eye edited together) 3:29
7. The Show Must Go On (Greatest Karaoke Hits plus restored outro) 4:29
(30:39)

I've been around since December. Not sure how many posts til you get to the next level.. maybe 50 or 100? I can't remember.

But concentrating on your post count will generally annoy people around here. I'd recommend just taking it easy and reply only when you have something real to say :)

I was just remastering it on my PC shortly before the power supply died :(

And shame too, as the sound was much improved on my version :(

What do you mean by, "remastering?"

Innuendo, the song, is my favourite Queen track, closely tailed by Play The Game.

I love the album - it's in my top 6 or 7 but it still doesn't reach the creative heights of the early album. With Freddie being sick though, it's an amazing effort.

I can't stand the Made In Heaven album though - with the exceptions of It's A Beautiful Day, Mother Love, A Winter's Tale and Track 13 - 'filler' is the word to best describe it. The version of 'Heaven For Everyone' is not a patch on the original Freddie/The Cross version.


Brian May, I should say

I love Innuendo, both the album and the song. The album is one of my favorites from Queen's later period. It might be a bit overrated, but it is a strong album.

I like them both. Innuendo reminds me so much of Bohemian Rhapsody though. Innuendo had been done before. Instead of an operatic section there was a Spanish Guitar section with claps. Not implying that Bohemian Rhapsody is a bad song.

Yet.

Well, with Freddie gone and an absence of decent new material, I'm enjoying what I call "Queen -"
(Minus rather than plus) LOL

You're too sensitive about terms like that. Sure, it's consumer level stuff, but who cares? If a person has a CD that's kind of old and they think they can improve the sound a bit, so they copy the tracks, enhance them and make a new CD, that's remastering.

Considering that there's some bad sounding 'professional' remasters, why is a consumer version any worse? "Innuendo" is actually a fine example. The digital master as it was was copied to consumer discs. So if we have a copy of the original CD, there's probably not much different than a pro using the digital master, adjusting the EQ and calling it remastered.. which in this case (2001) actually made some songs sound much worse, so a consumer might be able to get better results suited to his own tastes. Thus, a personal remaster. :)

You probably wouldn't like me calling CD-RWs "test pressings" either eh? :-P

My 2nd favourite after Queen II.

I love the song Innuendo, it's so powerful and deep.
I love These Are The Days Of Our Lives...
Mind you, I even love Delilah!!

I think Innuendo is Queen's most personal album, let alone The Show Must Go On. Always gets me.

Innuendo is a great way Queen, and Freddie himself, said goodbye.

I was just wondering what Inu was doing. It's always interesting to hear what people consider home mastering.

Peace,
