Hey it's my last album review (sigh). Once again I'll rate each song out of 10 and explain the rating. Afterward I'll rate the album as a whole. Enjoy!

1. Procession - An instumental kicks off the album. Not much to say about this one. It's not bad. 7/10

2. Father To Son - Personally, I don't like most of the "white side" of this album. This one just doesn't do anything for me. 5/10

3. White Queen (As It Began) - The shining star of the "white side". Great vocals by Freddie, very captivating song, especially live. 9/10

4. Some Day One Day - Brian's first two vocals on Queen's albums aren't the greatest when compared to the later ones (Sail Away Sweet Sister, '39, Long Away, and others). This one's a skipper in my view. 5/10

5. The Loser In The End - My personal favorite of Roger's vocals. I think it's his best vocal perfomance on any Queen album except for maybe Rock It on The Game. Good song. 8/10

6. Ogre Battle - Great opening to the track with the guitar followed by the "ah ah ah ah ah" part. Great vocals again by Freddie. Also great live. 9/10

7. The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke - Interesting lyrics by Freddie. Catchy song. Great lead into the two best songs on the album coming up. 8/10

8. Nevermore - One of Freddie's best vocals. Unfortunately the song is only a minute or so long. Fantastic song. 10/10

9. The March Of The Black Queen - The gem of the album. This was their Bohemian Rhapsody before the song came out. Great harmony and vocals on this one. Love the part where Roger sings a couple lines as well. Awesome song. 10/10

10. Funny How Love Is - Could have better a good song, however it gets very old very fast. If it only said the word funny a hundred times instead of a thousand it would have been better. Mediocre song. 5/10

11. Seven Seas Of Rhye - Queen's first hit in their career and you can see why. The lyrics are great the vocal is great. Everything about it is great. 10/10

Rating the album as a whole it's a good album that flows well together. But rating the individual songs give the album a lower rating. I know some fans will hate my review because they adore this album. Sorry guys. For me this album is good but there are at least 3 or 4 better ones (The Miracle, Innuendo, ANATO, ADATR). 7/10


How can I go on from day to day? Who can make me strong in every way?

this review is not even worth responding, To say the miracle is in the league as queen2 is sad, but i don't want to kill you too much for your opinion. I'll just say that I have a different opinion than yours. The album is an A+ and "loser in the end" is possibly my least favorite queen song ever.

The fact that you rate an album by taking the average of the songs' individual scores makes it very clear that you do not understand music at all.

The value of an album is more than the sum of the parts.


Yeah, that's the problem these days. People only want to hear individual songs (hit singles, three minutes of fun) not cohesive albums. Good solid rock albums have become a rare species.

I said the album was good overall. I like the album but it's not one of my favorites
