I've only listened to the last track a few times, but the whole album has kind of a down feel to it. Even upbeat songs like It's A Beautiful Day sound sadder just because you realize what had to happen for the album to be made.

I listen to it! I think it is brilliant! Even as simple as it is! I just have to remember to turn it down at the right times because it gets too loud! Otherwise it is too soft at times!

What is there to listen to Axel? The odd word or laugh from Freddie, but basically it's 23 minutes of silence.

Yo the last track in made in heaven som freaky tingz happening on it!!! man every time I here it I have a mental picture of a very ill Mercury laughing in the studio, I think its trying to capture his joking side during the daunting time... the daunting can be heard by the Indie vibed synths thats going around and every time Freds voice was dubbed on it really haunts da fuck out of me!!
and when I say capture his I mean its the fact that they repeat his laughs, his most humane and basic laughs, unlike the the almighty voice he showed in that album..

one time I put this on fa me ta sleep may be it was last year somtimes and I had a Mercury nightmare which I neva had before!!

IMO it is the same as watching DoRo-style cut-together videoclips of Queen (Show must go on, Innuendo) - The last Song is just a sample-fiddling and has nothing to do with musical arrangement, IMHO (!!!) - and for me, as musician, it is a waste of time to listen to one chord held for x minutes. Sorry for this statement!

but haven't Bri and Roger both said that they didn't know how to end "the final track on the final queen album" - so it kind of went on a bit
they also decided to put all the "heaven atmospherics" in and then fell on the idea of the very final thing you hear on the very final queen album coming from Freddie

Acutally it had the same problems as BoRhap. They were told to cut it down to 3 minutes so they can get airplay and a topselling single, but they refused...

Nah, but I kinda like it. I don't listen to it very much, but it is nice for relaxing, and thus, I don't have to buy a New Age-CD...

Juls can't be much of a musician if he thinks track13 "has nothing to do with musical arrangement."
What's worse is that he compares the track to a DoRo video.

Peace,
Adam.

I haven`t heard "Track 13" because I have a strange version of "Made In Heaven" which ends up with "It`s a Beautiful Day (Reprise)" however I did hear the remix of Track 13 did by Ross Robertson you can d/l it from www.flossfm.com it`s rally worth listening to.

And I`ve got a question (please excuse my ignorance) but what the DoRo shortcut stands for?

DoRo is the acronym for the two directors who did several Queen videos... Hannes DOlezal and Hannes ROssacher.

Doro's videos are much discussed among Queen fans since they oftentimes cut and paste videos together, which gets boring after a while. I personally cannot stand them because their accent sounds sooo disgusting ;).

It's called The Immortal Spirit (I think).

I think it's like a dream..... it's like the "peace" after the AIDS fight...

Brian said that David Richards was just fooling around with the synth and the chords of It's A Beautiful Day and made them loop forever... so Brian and Rog went into the studio and added the voice of Freddie talking through strange echoes and lots of things..... it's like a surreal requiem.....

Ooh, The Immortal Spirit...a decent name for the track. I always thought it would be called A Taste Of Heaven, as it's just that.

I always named it 'The Journey'. How cheesy.
