Both good albums, but I'd go for The Great Pretender.

Tough decision.

I find Mr. Bad Guy to be a bit more consistently good, but at the same time the stronger songs are primarily on The Great Pretender album, save my favorite, 'Man Made Paradise'. I prefer the MBG versions of 'Mr. Bad Guy' and 'You're My Kind of Lover', but the others I prefer on TGP.

I call it a perfect tie between the two.

Well when was The GP relased? I thought it was only a single in 1987, not an album. Could someone please correct my ignorance? Much appreciated.

In 1992 THE GREAT PRETENDER woz released in the US and in Europe THE FREDDIE MERCURY ALBUM.

THE FREDDIE MERCURY ALBUM

The Great Pretender
Foolin' Around (remix by Steve Brown)
Time (remix by Nile Rodgers)
Your Kind Of Lover (remix by Steve Brown)
Exercises In Free Love
In My Defence (remix by Ron Nevison)
Mr. Bad Guy (remixed by Brian Malouf)
Let's Turn It On (remixed by Jeff Lord-Alge)
Living On My Own
Love Kills
Barcelona

The American version (called "The Great Pretender") has the following differences
The Great Pretender (remixed by Brian Malouf) instead of normal version
Love Kills (remixed by Richard Wolf) instead of normal version
My Love Is Dangerous (remixed by Jeff Lord-Alge) instead of Barcelona
a remix (3:25) of Living On My Own is included as a 12th track on some copies of the CD (in addition to the normal version)
----
I prefer the Love Kills and My Love Is Dangerous remixes to the original versions actually!

Thank you. The tracklist shows to me that Queen, as early as 1992 were already definite on using I Was Born To Love You and Made In Heaven for the posthumous album even though they were singles off Mr Bad Guy.
