Hi,I don't mean to be a bother, but what do you guys have against 'The Miricle'? I think it is a beautiful album and has some of the most touching songs on it, as well as at least one hard ass rock number.


Down in the city just hoople and me.....

i really really dont like it, side, i want it all and the show, it really makes me cringe sounds like a load of "demos" put together with no 100% thought of the final product, i wish they had kept the songwriting separate, at least we would have had someone fighting to finish their tracks!i mean what the fuck is "party" all about?

I would have said "The Miracle" a year or so ago, but now I think it's "A Kind of Magic."

Ah... that's easier to choose than the topic about the 70's album... Doubtless it's THE MIRACLE. Personally I think that the only music in it which holds the whole album is "I Want it All" (that's one of my favourite songs!!!).
"The Miracle" is also a good music, but it goes better when edited...

Hot Space isn't very good as well, but I like musics as "Under Pressure", "Cool Chat", "Back Chat" and specially "Put Out the Fire". So, it's The Miracle...

I don't love The Miracle. It's got some strong songs (I Want It All, Scandal, Was It All Worth It) but too many weak ones also.

The Miracle is one of the weaker ones in my opinion as well, whats with the African drumming as well?on Rain must Fall I think - it doesnt sound like Queen at all!

Agree with serry on that one live magic is the worst album of the 80's not for the content but the sheer butchering and editing of some of the songs,they could have easily made a double album from the tour if just from 3 gigs.

The miracle i think is great was it all worth it,i want it all, scandal,breakthru,hang on in there,chinese torture etc make it a heavier sounding album than say a kind of magic which i would vote the second worst even though the hits are brilliant some tracks seem very quickly pasted together.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

I Love Every Queen Album, But HOT SPACE Was Definitely The Weakest Of Them All.

I like Hot Space and The Miracle. For me worst 80s album is The Game.
