EDITORS’ NOTES

The pomp-rock giants awake for their brilliant second decade. After a fairly muted start—the pop-funk excellence of 1981 Bowie collaboration “Under Pressure” a highlight—mid-80s standouts “Hammer to Fall” and “One Vision” recapture their harmonic, hard-rocking best. They struck another rich vein of stupidly infectious pop-rock (“I Want To Break Free”, “Radio Ga Ga”) until Freddie Mercury’s deteriorating health prompts the dignified sadness and stoicism of “The Show Must Go On”.
