Unacceptable surface noise for a new sealed record. The sound quality is excellent (much better than cd), but the constantly present pops and scratches totally ruin the experience. Yes, I cleaned the record using a vacuum record cleaning machine two times, and played it on two of my turntables (a VPI TNT and a Denon-DP60l), with different cartridges and phono preamps. I just can't believe that this album sounds more scratched than 30-year-old LPs that I play regularly. As an ardent Queen fan, I am disappointed.
Assuming that this was just a one-off issue, I ordered a replacement, but this was even worse. The pops and scratches were the same (they are clearly in the vinyl itself) but this time the spindle hole was off center leading to an eccentric rotational movement.
Not sure where Hollywood records presses these records but the quality is by far the worst I have experienced. Shame on you Hollywood records.
The European half-speed mastered pressing are top notch with no surface noise (I have their Miracle LP and the Studio Collection Box Set). Costs more, but definitely worth it.
OK, first; the record arrived in what appeared to be perfect condition, that is until I removed the record from the sleeve. Right away I noticed a scratch that runs the full length of side 2. There's no way this happened in transit or while stored somewhere, this was on the record before it was placed in the sleeve at the factory. Then it gets worse... side one of the record is pressed so far off center (The needle travels about 1/4 inch left-right) that any long playing note sounds absolutely horrid. And finally the sound of the record itself is very lifeless and dull. Long time ago I had the original release on vinyl, and currently I own the 2011 remaster on CD, and while the CD has it's own issues both of those sound much better that this Hollywood Records pressing of this album. Very disappointing purchase. Innuendo [Vinyl ]
the rest of the album, i don't change the tracks - to me that is a sign of good music. (i am a compulsive track changer, if the song gets on my nerves.)
as a cat owner, delilah made me laugh. as did I'm going slightly mad.
three tracks on the album make me weep. the show must go on, don't try so hard, and Brian Taylor's these are the days of our lives.
may's headlong is just good rock and roll.
i think it is queen's best work.

Anyway, instinct from me was four stars for this album, as it is not a favourite of mine really, compared to Jazz or Queen II - but for the latter day Queen it is the best they did in a decade. It has a couple of real standouts in These are the Days...and Show Must Go on. The rest are all strong, no fillers, I'm Going slightly mad - whimsical, and a song dedicated by Mercury to his cat - eccentric! It is a very interesting album, thelast full and proper Queen album - it gets a five as they have provided me with much pleasure over the years & this closes the curtain in style.
