Breakthru is my absolute favourite on the album and one of Queens best singles.
Hamish Gavin
It sounds almost as if the band felt they had nothing to prove anymore and with the pressure off, they could relax and make an album for themselves.
Frederick Baptist
The best songs on this album are The Miracle, I Want It All, Breakthru, and Scandal.

As always, a Queen recording has something for everyone. Not so much as always, 1989's "The Miracle" begins the revelation (subtle at the time) that days are numbered and getting darker. The tours were over, Freddie's image was more gaunt, and much was done (including more facial hair than usual) to obscure the real person behind it all. Not a word was spoken about it, and otherwise, everyone acted the same as always.
Which is even more of a chilling thought. The unknown is always more provoking than the black and white. This was where Freddie's tragic (UNBELIEVABLY tragic) bout with AIDS started to really come into play. The next album, "Innuendo," would take all of this, including the depth of the music, to an even HIGHER level, though barely even thought possible. That does nothing to take away from the fact that atleast one "70's band," albeit for the worst reasons, flexed its biggest muscles in future decades.
"The Miracle" is epic. Plenty of music for all moods, from the obligatory party songs in the beginning (such as "Party"), to the confused confrontations with the idea of death ("Was it All Worth It"), and everything in between. Queen already had established themselves as a band that showcases emotion of the highest levels, and now that special talent would be put into overdrive. "Breakthru" starts with a wonderful trademark "Freddie Choir" but quickly breaks into a rushing, impatient, pressed song of just wishing that one thing would happen to make life seem worth living. Excellently written. "I Want It All" says the same message, but more blatantly. In retrospect, it's easy to see from this music, that Freddie felt short on time. That's just too depressing to dwell on.

By this time, Freddie Mercury had already taken sick and the band stopped touring and so decided to put all their energies into a great studio album and this was the result. Very polished with a lot more production elements than you usually get from a Queen album but the result is in hindsight a very good album indeed. Very different from say "A Night At the Opera" or even "The Game" but still a very good album in any case. They seem to have completely regained their confidence lost since "Hot Space" and slowly regaining it in "The Works" and the "Highlander" soundtrack aka "Kind of Magic" albums. It sounds almost as if the band felt they had nothing to prove anymore and with the pressure off, they could relax and make an album for themselves. It almost sounds like they intended this to be their swansong with "Was it All Worth It". Many strong tracks and the album is very smooth flowing. The sound quality is quite good and the bonus tracks are a nice touch. Highly recommended.

Throughout most of this album (with the exception of 2 songs "Rain Must Fall" and "My Baby Does Me"), all members of Queen shine brightly. Freddie Mercury's health was deteriorating at the time but still wished Queen to go on, albiet without touring. If you notice in the videos, he's grown a beard to hide his gaunt appearance. Also, the lyrics are a lot more personal than before. All of the members got credit for each song ("We made a decision," commented Brian May, "that perhaps we should've made on previous albums"). You can skip the remixes, nothing amazing about them. However, 2 bonus songs are quite interesting. "Hang On In There" is a positive song exhorting the listener to not give up and promises "Your wish will be granted." "Chinese Torture" is a moody instrumental with a synthesized orchestra and Brian's expressive guitar. "Party" and "Khashoggi's Ship" are both reminiscent of "We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions." Though 2 separate songs, it's hard to imagine one without the other. "Party" seems to say the party is over while "Khashoggi" seems to say the party is not over (this is probably in reference to the rumours that Queen was breaking up at the time). "The Miracle" is a 5 minute epic (the video for this song was entertaining, with 4 youngsters filling in for the band). It features positive lyrics ("The one thing we're all looking for is peace on earth, and an end to war. It's a miracle we need!") and a fun little jam at the end before they sing "The time will come one day, you'll see, when we can all be friends." Following that is the hard rocking "I Want It All." This is reminscent of the early 1970's Queen. "The Invisible Man" is one of those songs you'll either find catchy or grating. Each member of the band is introduced.Read more ›

For a band that long prided itself on 'no synthesizers', it was sometimes painful to hear their work on albums such as The Works and A Kind of Magic. The electronic gadgetry is still here, but so is a return to highlighting the great work of guitarist Brian May on tracks such as I Want it All and Party. Invisible Man is a neat mix of the old and new Queen sound. For me, this is the band's best album of the 1980s. They'd truly return to impressive form with Innuendo in 1991.

Queen's fourteenth album (not counting compilations) The Miracle was released in May of 1989 in the US.
The Miracle saw Queen going back slowly to the sound that made them famous in the 1970s.
Guitarist Brian May, drummer Roger Taylor, bass player John Deacon and lead singer Freddie Mercury took some time off after The Magic Tour of 1986 to work on other projects but went in the studio in 1988 to record Queen's strongest album since 1980's The Game. Also, the band switched co-producers to David Richards for a change. Lastly, the band would co-write all of the songs TOGETHER as a UNIT. Would this change be good or bad, read on.
We begin The Miracle album with "Party" and "Khashoggi's Ship", two good partying songs. Party is a short but good opening track which gets the mood of the album off on the right foot. We follow with the rocker Khashoggi's Ship which is a killer rocker. Each time I hear the fast section at the end, I want to speed down the highway doing 90, it rocks! The Miracle's title cut is next and is a beautiful number. This number is a great uplifting song when things look down (its video was priceless as it depicted four young kids playing the Queen members and executing the movements of the four Queen-men well). Next is the rocker "I Want It All" which is classic stadium rock Queen at its best. Sad that Queen never got the chance to play this live despite the fact, the band made a performance clip for the track. This track gave Queen their first American rock radio hit since Under Pressure in 1981 hitting #3 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock charts and the song just rocks. The version on the Hollywood Records version of the album is a different mix to the one on the EMI and Capitol versions of the album.
