Re: Formula 1

Hamilton didn't get away scott-free. He got a penalty. And then got incredibly lucky with the way things played out. Sometimes that's just the way it goes. For what it's worth, I thought the penalty in that instance was about right. He was predominantly at fault, but it wasn't all him. I expect if V...

Re: Restructuring A Kind of Magic

However, that isn't quite the spirit of the thread - would you want a Highlander soundtrack AND the AKOM we got released in the same year? Surely that'd have been a bit of a rip off? No, but that's probably why it never happened at the time. Brian expressed a desire to do it about 20 years ago. Sad...

Re: Restructuring A Kind of Magic

But I could see the logic in the other songs getting an EP release so they're not lost completely. Even if they are mostly filler. The beauty of doing a proper Highlander soundtrack is A Kind of Magic isn't going anywhere, so all the other songs and album versions will still be available. By a High...

Re: Your latest Queen buys Part 2

It might not be the best song the band ever put out, but I firmly believe it's got the best guitar solo Brian May's ever recorded.

Re: Formula 1

After Abu Dhabi I saw a lot of people on social media vowing never to watch F1 again. As mad as I was at what happened, I thought that was a bit of an over-the-top knee jerk reaction. That said, I’ve barely checked out what’s been going on in the sport since. Normally I’d be on the F1 app every othe...

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

As far as other live recordings; I really hope they can dig out the Albert Hall video. I simply don't believe that the footage is lost. We're not talking about a box of reels from the 70s. We're talking about a video from the late 90s. I'm sure Doro has it, if it remains unreleased, there has to be...

Re: BM solo re-releases: "We're working on a plan"

Yeah, spring according to his latest post. I feel like there's at least a chance we might get something more interesting on the bonus disc for this one, because there simply weren't as many extra tracks put out at the time. You've got four B-sides - "Maybe Baby", "F.B.I.", "Only Make Believe" and "H...

Re: Restructuring A Kind of Magic

Forget restructuring A Kind of Magic (to significantly improve it you'd have to drop all the filler, and by that point you wouldn't be left with enough for an album). Just release a proper Highlander soundtrack album. WWTLF needs the freddie version. No it doesn't. The switch from Brian to Freddie a...

Re: The Miracle Box set

I just wonder how you all will react when the Miracle boxset will finally be revealed and will be quite below your expectations...sure, I hope not, but I can't get too excited about this project before I see a tracklist, that's why I have no problem waiting here. Oh I fully expect it to be thorough...

Re: The Miracle Box set

That joke wasn't funny the first dozen times I saw it mentioned on these forums.

Plus, you know, The Miracle actually exists.
