I love it - especially the guitar-solo. Somewhere I read that Brian mixed his guitar-part with the sound of bag-pipes. Absolutely amazing.


I´ll eat them whole before I´m done!

I think it's all just the red special. Think of "Good company" - a whole Dixieband just one guitar !

I think Gimme the prize is also an underrated song, it's same thunderous as "princess of the Universe" but what's your opinion? Thanks buddies


Refresh my memory: is there any song called PRINCESS of the universe? Wow, never heard of it...


I LOVE QUEEN!

Aha, it's recently found song and very very rare one for the collectors at the moment

Don't like it- there is some great guitar work here, but I can't stand the production- it's too busy, it's just... The melody is almost lost because everything else is pretty flat- heavy, but flat... Just like the rest (with 2-3 exceptions) of AKOM album... I agree though- solo is great...

I really love them both and I love when Freddie goes heavy singing too.I'd die to hear a version of Gimme the Prize by my second all time favourite singer,Rob Halford of Judas Priest.
It fit perfectly his vocal range and would sound awesome IMHO.


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.

It would have made an amazing opener for the shows.

GTP is definitely underrated ... that's an awesome song. Great stuff.

which of the AKOM songs are your favourite? My opinion Gimme The Prize are also just to busy, but it's thunderous and that's what I like, like also I Want It All
POTU is an awesome track. One Vision is a great track but a bit ruined by production... And WWTLF... That's about it- I don't listen to the rest, unless I want to punish myself (the biggest punishment is always Pain/Pleasure...)

Pain is so close to pleasure is AWFUL. Much like near everything on that CRAPPY album. I hate the 80s for Queen.


Why did the 80s have to happen?

Indeed:

First all kind of weird sounds and thunder. And then Freddie waits on the 'balcony' above the drumkit: Spotlight on Freddie:

Here I am!!! *Voice breaks*

Some guy of the crew: "Sorry guys we have to cancel the tour because Freddie fucked up his voice"

It would have been awsome!

A live version of the song coud have been great!

But...let me tell you that POTU is much better than Gimme the prize.

I agree Gimme The Prize is underrated but i think a perfect song to a start a Queen concert would be Princes Of The Universe. It would blow the roof off the stadium 'if it had one'.
