Swan Song

Freddie's imenent death was getting closer and you here and feel in this incredible final album. This is extremely underrated.

Queen at their absolute best.

In my opinion, Queen is the best band of all time. They can play any genre whether it’s hard rock, heavy metal, pop, or opera. But none of Queen’s albums was as good as Innuendo. When this album was being made, Freddie Mercury was dying of AIDS. Few would record an album when they have AIDS, but Mercury did just that. And the result is Queen at their absolute best. Creative and complex songs that all seem to connect to the theme of imminent death and carrying on no matter what. All the songs have a great meaning to it with lots of talent from all four band members. The epic title track, Innuendo is about people living in greed and madness. I’m Going Slightly Mad is about doing as many things as possible before you die with a great slide guitar solo by Brian May. These are the Days of Our Lives is a great and soothing song featuring an awesome solo by May. Bijou, though lacking in lyrics, displays Brian May’s guitar skills at his best. And the album’s climax, The Show Must Go On is a superb goodbye from Freddie Mercury to all his fans with May’s typical virtuoso guitar playing. Overall, I think this is Queen’s best album with Mercury singing his absolute best despite his illness, and I’d recommend this to any Queen and/or classic rock fan out there.

Perhaps their very best.

Innuendo is both underrated an album and as it's title track. Queen had never made a braver statement, condemning religions and superstition as mere means of submission and control, while reminding humanity that it has the power to affect its own change through the belief of itself.
Freddie is missed. In the narcissistic- selfie-look at me everyone age that we have ludicrously found ourselves in, what's missing most in all of it is what Queen epitomized: professionalism, talent and a true generosity of spirit.
