i ordered this cd on amazon a while ago, and i finally got it
i can go ahead and tell you its my favorite so far
some of my favorites:
2. Khashoggi's Ship
5. Was It All Worth It
what are some of you guys favorites?
This album is something special for me also, it has so much positive power and brilliant melodies.
And even 16 years after its release it doesn't sound out of date like lots of other 80's records.
Queen always were ahead of their time...and something unique.
I remember talking to the bass player of the german band 4lyn and he told me that sometimes he sits down in his room, listens to the album "The Miracle" and just could cry because its so great.
The lyrics are so optimistic and the overall sound so positive in comparison to "Innuendo", which I also love.
And I think "Breakthru" , "The Miracle" and "Scandal" have just brilliant videos, could watch them over and over again! *hehe*
funny you got this, I heard the album the other day (after about 18 months).
Some good tracks on there, one above all is the 12" version of Scandal (incl. in the US 1991 Remasters).
It is better than Hot Space...
One though I always had was that "You don't fool me" was also written around this time. But sources say it's during HS.
What do you think? Does YDFM have that Miracle sound?
You know, I love Scandal too, but if you've listened to the commentary of GHV2, Roger explains that he had never cared for the song, and loathed the video shoot. Almost broke my heart.
invisible man (another rog song)
was it all worth it
on the B side.....too much keyboard percussion
i luv the whole album, i think one of the best albums they did, totally unrated. My favourites are: -
I Want it All
Was it All Worth it? (Should of been a single)

The Breakthru video is one of their best clips, I think.
The song itself is one of their best too.
well thats your opinion and it angers me because i cant understand how anyone could think that because i love it so much, but thats why the words opinion and different exist because people are different.

Is that orchestra part in Was It All Worth It
real or just synths?
Yeah it's a synth, darling. Kind of like I think John said, one of the reasons they started using synths is because they developed passed the klunky monophonic moog synth heard in like 70's progressive rock, I think it was Brian who may have said the quote now lol, anyway he was like they were used just to make an odd sound or whatever and he figured he could just get whatever sound he made out of his guitar instead of using something just to make a strange sound (paraphrasing) anyway then he said they started using synths because they could sound like an entire orchestra within a keyborad. Now I think about it again, I think John may have said the quote I'm thinking about, I don't knwo lol
