Yeah, it's hard to beat Hammer to Fall for rock adrenaline, but Invisible Man is a cool song. I had never seen the full video until I got GVH2, and I thought it was gonna be cheesy, but it surprised me: it showed the boys having fun together, at a time when they really needed it. Nice cowboy hat, John!

I like it...I love Brian's guitar solo and the video is great. Especially Roger's comments on how John was pre-dating The Edge with his cowboy hat. I think he may have been wrong, but awesome video nonetheless.

It is too similar to "Ghostbusters". A part from this, it's fun both the song and the video

Normally I love it. Very fun song. At times it annoys me though. I suffer from mood swings :-P

danm straight - although the guitar solo in the middle of Invisible Man has to be one of my favourites...

I don't really like it. I think it's an OK song. Wish they released Whas It All Worth It as a single.

I dig TIM. The video is nothing short of fine Cheddar, but in a good, funny way.
And the tune is pretty catchy itself.

I agree with Fenderek to an extent with this one.

I don't dislike the song. It is catchy and does have a good beat to it. Excellent guitar by Mr. May as well but one of their best???!!! Come on, let's be fair.

Don't get me wrong, I like the song but for me, it would not get in my top 50 Queen songs.

Again, not dissing the song but when you look at what they could have released off 'The Miracle' album instead of 'The Invisible Man', the mighty 'Was It All Worth It', it kind of puts things in perspective a little!

I only hear a vague resemblance myself, but if you say it's like Ghostbusters, then the song traces back to "I Want A New Drug" by Huey Lewis & The News, which Ray Parker Jr. ripped off in a much more obvious way for "Ghostbusters"

So thank Huey for The Invisible Man :-P

The Invisible man is one of my favourite songs(number 4 to me) and my 2nd favourite ROger's song(after THES ARE THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES).I adore Queen's experimental songs,especially the few that have electronic motive.

Good song..has anybody ever heard the Scatman John cover of it?


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?
