Re: The Miracle Box set

Every release has been promoted live by QAL. It makes sense when the tour restarts they'll release the Miracle Box set, especially as it was very popular in the UK and Europe.

Re: Future boxsets

People can say what they want about other artists, and when a project like that is prudent to release, but one thing they usually have in common, is where they sit in your career trajectory, usually on the downward side of the graph. When you still have Greatest Hits albums on the chart, you've pro...

Re: Live Around The World

I feel that the album is (partly) designed to promote the mega crowd/festival credentials of the band. The mainly very large crowds are highly featured. I think the release achieved its goals, even if a full show is ultimately more desirable. The best quality recording is more likely to come from an...

Re: Did you buy Live Around the World?

I bought it. I like it. It sounds good. The live around the world vibe works better on the video, but I’m enjoying just listening to my favourite tracks off the CD. I’ve seen every QAL tour. They are a great band in and of themselves. The “we miss Freddie” element of the show is not my favourite ele...

Re: The Miracle

I was 11 when the Magic Tour happened and was too young to go. Then the band just vanished off the face of the earth. I figured they’d retired and I slowly collected all their albums. The first time I heard I Want It All on the radio the song wasn’t introduced and I knew after 5 seconds it was Queen...

Re: Announcement Coming...

I'm happy for the release, don't mind the pick n mix vibe, but wish it was a triple album with as much as they could cram in. Unless you've seen them on every freakin continent on every tour you can't have heard say, One Vision and It's Late live. I agree about I Want it All. I bet they haven't even...

Re: A Kind of Magic!

The guitar work on Friends Will Be Friends is very nice. Instrumentally, it’s a good song.

Re: A Kind of Magic!

There’s only one thing Queen did that really lost me, total zone out, and that is: Giving me the horn. By which I mean the sax on One Year Of Love and the horn sections on Hot Space. It is just not Queen. When they were faking this sound for kicks on A Night at the Opera it was wanton genius. The po...

Re: Odd song placements on albums

There’s a difference between not liking songs and thinking they’re in the wrong order on an album. Regarding Party and Kashoggi’s Ship, they work as a unique opening on a Queen album, because they are not designed to shout “Hey, we’re back with a new bigger and bolder album” but more ironically “we’...

Re: Roger at Freddie Tribute

Before the rumour about Chris Thompson, the original rumour was that Roger was going to sing AKOM. I’m not saying that was true, but that was the rumour immediately after the show, that he didn’t do it because the show ran overtime. It would make sense that Roger would sing Old Friends, because Bria...
