4.0 out of 5 stars QUEEN'S LIVE N LITE COMPILATION January 8, 2005
By G. YEO
Format:Audio CD
This disc was the 2nd live offering from Queen after QUEEN LIVE KILLERS was made in the late seventies.

I like it a lot and prefer this to Live at Wembley and even the recent On Fire, all of which are double sets.

Here's why - although it's edited - the performances are sterling. Versions of One Vision, Tie Your Mother Down and Radio Gaga are great.

No disagreements that Bohemian sounds butchered but the album moves along at a nice pace. It feels tighter. Worth getting for the songs unless you must have a complete double set of Queen in concert.

I will say that the definitive live Queen set is probably still in the vaults waiting to be released...

2.0 out of 5 stars Live Magic is for the completionist ONLY!!! October 15, 2009
Format:MP3 Music
While this album isn't a miserable failure, it certainly begs one to wonder, "How is this still in print?" You have to remember that had Freddie Mercury not died of AIDS, LIVE MAGIC would probably be the only live material released from the Kind of Magic tour of 1985/86'. But after Mercury's death, the band released LIVE AT WEMBLEY STADIUM - a greatly improved live presentation of the KIND OF MAGIC tour. Upon it's release , LIVE AT WEMBLEY was seen as a fitting tribute to Mercury's brilliant songwriting, equally brilliant voice, heroic charisma and unbelievable crowd control. Since WEMBLEY was considered the perfect swan song to Mercury's career, the "Tour highlights" CD package known as LIVE MAGIC quickly became unimportant.

..... here are a few reasons why LIVE AT WEMBLEY is the wise purchase over LIVE MAGIC :::::

1 Every song on Live Magic is chopped into shorter versions (except for 3 songs).
2 The sound quality is not as good as LIVE AT WEMBLEY
3 LIVE AT WEMBLEY features several extra tracks, such as a fun little acoustic/50's section in the show. Also, the newest version of WEMBLEY contains Tavaski Szel Vizet Araszt - another emotional live moment in Queen's history. Where are the emotional moments on LIVE MAGIC? There are none.
4 The running times of these shortened versions are ridiculous.... "Friends will be Friends" is barely over a minute long. Same thing with "Is This The World We Created?".
5 Another query: Where in the blue hell is "Who Wants To Live Forever"?!??!...... as Freddie would say, "Darling, please!"
6 And most importantly.... there is NOTHING MAGIC about the live performances. Most shows take place on different nights - so the ebb and flow of a real rock show is lacking. So many issues....

2.0 out of 5 stars The Magic is not here October 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Looking back at the 1970s and 1980s, sometimes many forget how big the band Queen was. If it weren't for Freddie Mercury's death in 1992, we might still be talking about Queen being as big a band as the Beatles. Even as Queen moved into the 1980s, while their popularity did slightly decline in the United States, it continued to be very high in Europe. As good a band as Queen was, it was their live performances that really were something special. Their performance at Live Aid is widely considered one of the greatest of all-time and their subsequent "Magic" tour is considered one of the all-time greatest concert tours. At the height of that magic tour were legendary concerts at Wembley Stadium and Knebworth Park that would wrap up the "Magic" tour. Queen would release CD and DVDs version of one of the Wembley Stadium shows. The CD would be called "Live at Wembley '86" and the DVD would be simply called "Live at Wembley" Both the CD and DVD versions would capture the true "magic" of a Queen live performance. Queen would also release another CD from the "Magic" Tour simply entitled "Live Magic". This would feature not only performances from the Wembley show, but also from Knebworth and Budapest. While this CD would have its moments, it would prove to pale in comparison with the "Live at Wembley" collections.

Queen is an example of the sum of the parts actually being greater than the whole. However, if you take each of the four members of Queen, they easily stand on their own as a top musician in their profession. Freddie Mercury is easily known to be the emotional and flamboyant lead vocalist of Queen who indeed has a legendary voice. Brian May is the legendary lead guitarist and probably the second most popular member of the band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magic live June 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I admit that »Queen Live Killers« is an even better live album than »Live Magic«. But I don't understand why everybody dislikes »Live Magic« 'cause it is another great live album. Like only Queen made'em!
Especially the close-to-medley in the second half of the recording. 6 or 7 great songs linked together in one Queen epic. Euphoric! The best performance of'em all is shown on »Hammer To Fall«.
This is pure Queen live power from the first tune to the last. Cheers!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not bad... even worse October 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
this is the worst live album Queen ever released, believe me

I love Queen but this album was a total disappointment... cuts, bad performances (Bohemian rhapsody is a disaster), bad recording quality...

buy Live at Wembley, THAT is a GREAT live album, this is just crap

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrible August 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
The songs on Live Magic have been heavilly edited. Much better versions can be found on Live At Wembley the album to get instead of this one.
