Editorial Reviews

Queen achieved many things in their recordings with Freddie Mercury, but they reached new heights with the last album recorded and released while he was alive. Innuendo is an ambitious, epic lp with heartfelt, mature lyrics which took on new meaning when Freddie passed away immediately after its' release. This is the first U.S. release of Innuendo on vinyl lp and features the original 1991 edits made by the band for the vinyl release A platinum smash in its original and CD releases, now restored to glorious analog 180 gram jet-black vinyl lp. Yes it's Phase II of Queen on Vinyl Collector's Edition re-issue program - every Queen studio album is to be released on vinyl lps over the next two years. The original albums are being re-issued correct in every detail to the original releases, including inner sleeves, packaging and bonuses.

Customer Reviews

This is by far one of the best Queen albums to date!!!!
Stephen V. Waters Jr.
He left this world after he and his bandmates released an album of the most incredible music they could ever do.
BGFN8
This album is the last that Queen did while Freddie Mercury was alive, and it is one of their best.

There is no word in the English dictionary that accurately describes this work of genius. It is absolutely amazing, unbelieveable, incredible. I have almost every Queen album, this was the first one I purchased aside from the greatest hits, and it still reigns supreme over all the other Queen albums.
"Innuendo" (the song) is my favorite Queen song, it is amazing. It opens with a drum roll which makes you jump upon first listen. Freddie Mercury sounds better than ever before. The highlight of the track is the "wandering minstrel" guitar interlude beginning at 3:16, it starts out in 5/4 time, then goes into 6/4 after a couple of choruses. Absolutely amazing. "I'm Going Slightly Mad" is a humorous track, which is somewhat Noel Coward-ish. "Headlong" is an excellent rocker, will please metalheads everywhere with its heavily distorted guitar riffs and excellent solos. "I Can't Live With You" is a fantastic song, with great lyrics and instrumentation. "Don't Try So Hard" features one of Freddie Mercury's ultimate vocal performances, absolutely beautiful, will bring tears to some eyes, no joke. Roger Taylor must have been the primary force behind "Ride The Wild Wind," as his drums really stand out on this fast, heart-pumping track. "All God's People" is classic Freddie Mercury, with its complex, multilayered vocals ala "Somebody To Love" or "Bohemian Rhapsody." Next is the haunting track "These Are The Days Of Our Lives," a song about looking back on childhood and enjoying life as an adult. This song was also the last music video filmed by Queen as a foursome with Freddie. "Delilah" is a cute, little ditty about Freddie's favorite cat of the same name.

It's hard to believe that this is the last album Queen released as a foursome. Released in 1991, not too long before Freddie's death, this truly shows Queen at their finest. It's one of those albums you can listen to all the way through. Starting with the six-minute epic "Innuendo", and ending with the powerful "The Show Must Go On," this album is a must have for any Queen fan, or any rock fan for that matter.

1. Innuendo (10/10)

2. I'm Going slightly Mad (10/10)

3. Headlong (8/10)

4. I Can't Live with You (7.5/10)

5. Don't Try So Hard (9/10)

6. Ride the Wild Wind (8/10)

7. All God's People (7.5/10)

8. These Are the Days of Our Lives (10/10)

9. Delilah (8/10)

10. The Hitman (8.5/10)

11. Bijou (9.5/10)

12. The Show Must Go On (10+)

The last song on the CD is, in my opinion, one of the best Queen songs ever. As you listen to Freddie sing, it's not apparent in any way he was ill. His voice was still as beautiful as ever, and he went out at the top. It pains me to listen to the song, because it seems like a song Freddie wrote about his battle with his illness. "The Days of our Lives" seems like Freddie's farewell song. When he says at the end, "I still love you," I tear up. Freddie Mercury was the best songwriter/singer/performer that I have ever known, and I will remember him forever!

Forget everything you know about Queen and Freddie Mercury. Buy this CD for the brilliant music alone...

This is simply rock music at the highest level - a great band probably playing at its peak. Every song is a masterpiece, pure and simple.

And then remember Queen and Freddie Mercury. They knew this CD would probably be their last as Queen. And they, as a group, gave it their all. Music, lyrics, performance -its all here.

Listen to the CD again. And then you can cry for what we have lost.

PREAMBLE RAMBLE

You will know I love many eclectic styles of music when I say that my current CD changer is occupied by Astrud Gilberto, Hank Williams, Louis Prima, Brothers Johnson, Johnny Cash, and Queen. And while these may seem to be hopelessly disconnected, I realized with a start today that the Cash and Queen CDs actually did share one bittersweet connection: both are sad but stirring farewells from artists of unparalelled excellence.

Of course, the particular Queen CD occupying my CD changer at this time is INNUENDO, and it has ranked as my favorite Queen CD during the past 15 years. Though it may not be as consistent as, say, NIGHT AT THE OPERA, it does hit several high points that continue to be deeply moving and revelatory in their brilliance.

THE SONGS

This CD does really hold together strongly thematically, as Freddie Mercury ponders the most profound issues of life and death, and does so with a determined--even hopeful--gleam in his eye. The Zepplin-esque leadoff title track is as epic and powerful as anything the band has ever done, Mercury's vocals soaring on waves of sonic blasts courtesy of Brian May's guitar symphonics and guest guitarist Steve Howe's Spanish-style picking.

"I'm Going Slightly Mad" is somewhat chilling in light of reality, but Mercury infuses it with his usual tongue-in-cheek defiant humor, and "Headlong" is a pleasingly crunchy rocker highlighted by Queen's groovy rhythm section of Taylor and Deacon. Other highlights include the exhilirating "Ride the Wild Wind" and the beautifully lilting "These Are the Days of Our Lives" (one of the band's finest ballads, and one that is not maudlin in any way).
