You may have just summed up what Queen is all about. I enjoy The Prophet's Song immensly right after sitting through Pain is So Close To Pleasure (possibly the only Queen song that makes me cringe).

Queen were never afraid to get it all wrong, and if they did they did it royally.
Some may argue they have continued that tradition with Paul Rodgers, but I'm not one of them.

But Innuendo is a very good, classy, refined taste. Not bad taste. ;)

Some people would say that liking Queen AT ALL is poor taste...



You're only 17, eh? That means you have grown up in an era when liking Queen was reasonably OK. You should have been around in the Eighties :-)
In those days if I knew I would be having visitors, I'd hide my Queen-records in the attic!
They day after the first showing of the Break Free video I was afraid to go to work.

Queen appear to be a lot more accepted these days, unfortunately since Freddie died.

Tsc, tsc, now why would you hide your Queen records? You should be proud of your bad taste. Spread it out for all to see! You know why? Because YOU CAN'T HIDE WHAT'S INSIDE.

That may be sound advice NOW but in the Eighties you couldn't just have bad taste, because everyone else already had!

Seriously, Queen have gathered a lot more of so called street credibility since those days. So have bands like Abba and the like. I still resent the fact that Freddie's death was probably the main cause for this.

I like all three of these albums - they all have some great songs on them

Hot Space:

Dancer - cool 80's groove
Life Is Real - Nice sentiment
Las Palabras De Amor - I'm not gay, but the sweetness in Freddie's voice on this one...I woulda let him.
Cool Cat - Freddie falsetto - mahhvelous!
Under Pressure - Great song, plain and simple

The Works - how can anyone say this wasn't a great album??? With the exception of Passing the Open Windows, every song on this album rocks!

The Miracle - Come on! Okay, so My Baby Does Me and Hang On In There were weak, and Chinese Torture is a downright nasty gag, but the rest of this album is first-rate.




Thank you, God bless you, sweet dreams you lot of tarts, Good-bye!
