Forever

This new offering from one of the greatest classic rock bands of all time features three previously unreleased NEW Queen tracks with late singer Freddie Mercury spearheading this exciting new Queen album, QUEEN FOREVER.

The tracks include a long anticipated song from Queen and Michael Jackson, ‘There Must Be More to Life Than This,’ a previously unfinished Mercury-Queen track ‘Let Me In Your Heart Again’ originating from the band’s THE WORKS album recording sessions, and a new stripped-down ballad version of Mercury’s first solo hit, his Giorgio Moroder collaboration, ‘Love Kills.’

The rest of the package brings together Queen hits, classic tracks, and new takes on well-known songs, matched with band recordings Brian May describes as ‘things that we have collected together that are representative of our growth rather than the big hits’ in a collection immaculately assembled by May and Roger Taylor themselves. The tracks are all linked to represent a definitive collection of Queen’s timeless love songs.

This extended 36-track, two-CD set celebrates the extraordinary musical path of one of the world’s greatest rock bands.

List Price: $ 19.99

    Since I own all Queen’s albums (and way too many of their greatest hits compilations), I simply bought this for the 3 unreleased songs. ‘Let Me In Your Heart Again’ is a great track, playful and straight-forward and spot on, it’s my favorite of the 3. ‘Love Kills’ is a nicely interpreted. I like it just as much as Freddie’s original version. ‘There Must Be More to Life Than This’ is undeniably overproduced but still very enjoyable. You can hear the unfinished, raw version off of You Tube with the synthesizer backing to really hear Freddie’s and Michael Jackson’s voices more clearly. I still am a big fan of Freddie’s original version off of ‘Mr. Bad Guy’ as it blended the right amount of piano, synthesizers, and Freddie’s passionate voice.
    The 2-CD compilation offers a great dive into their album cuts. There isn’t a bad track on here. If you are new Queen fan, purchase this over the single CD Greatest Hits, you’ll be glad you did. Each song sounds like a greatest hits anyway and at 36 tracks, this 2-CD will keep you interested enough until you start purchasing the individual albums.

    Queen Will Live Forever!, November 11, 2014

    Hearing a unreleased track in 2014 is so refreshing. The second you press play on the Queen “Forever” album you get a unreleased song called “Let Me In Your Heart Again.” Written by guitarist Brian May and recorded in L.A. 1983 during The Works session. It never made the light of day on The Works, but it did in the late 80′s with actress Anita Dobson on her solo album. The minute I heard Freddie Mercury’s voice singing a song I never heard him do before made my mind fill with nostalgia of why I fell in love with Queen. Freddie’s vocal performance is in his prime with flawless grace and power. Throughout beginning to end the song is set in a high range. It might be the highest range I’ve heard Freddie sing in a medium ballad other than “Made In Heaven” I can see why this song did not make it on The Works. It’s because the lyrics and style did not fit the project. The second track is “Love Kills.” A electronic/dance song that Freddie Mercury co-written with Giorgio Moroder(producer of Donna Summers). Another song recorded by Queen during The Works period. It was finally released for a 1928 reworked movie called Metropolis. I also have have heard a hard rock version on Freddie’s solo album. I was unaware that Queen also made a ballad version of this song during the time of The Works. Quite frankly when I saw “Love Kills-The Ballad” on the playlist I was not excited. I never liked that song. I am here to tell you that the newly reworked ballad version with Brain May and the drummer Roger Taylor is the best version. It should have been in a ballad format all along. It has taken a new life. It has an acoustic intro, Brianesque guitar solo, and a distinguishable Queen arrangement. Now I hear “Love Kills” in a different light. The third track on this album is called “There Must Be More To Life Than This” This is truly an awaited gem by Queen fans that has been in the vault. Most die hard Queen fans are aware of Freddie’s demos. Although this song was on his “Mr Bad Guy” album, in the album it’s special because it’s a duet with Michael Jackson. Eventually ,the MJ version surfaced on the web, but this new duet version is done by Queen and produced by William Orbit. In the original version the piano is the dominant instrument, and In the reworked version it’s the guitar. Brian May once again lavishes us with nice layered guitars and a solo that screams Queen. You’ll hear a young King of Pop singing effortlessly and with a beautiful unadulterated tone. For those who never heard this duet you will realize you are officially hearing two of the greatest performers singing together. It has to be mentioned that we lost Freddie and Michael too soon. I like how this version ends as well. The whole production has a Beatles flavor. The vocal production on this track was not up to par like the last two songs. They doubled their lead voices at certain parts of the song that didn’t seem agreeable to my ears. In the end you have Freddie and Michael singing in unison. I am very forgiving with this recording, because it was a demo that was resurrected for our pleasure. The reason I spent so much time on these first three songs, is because that it’s the only new material on this compilation album. The rest are re-mastered songs that already exist on previous albums. Usually I do not give a high rating for compilation albums, and especially when the record company is repackaging to get our money again. This compilation album is different in that fact it’s not a greatest hits. It’s a compilation of mostly ballads that define Queens career. Out of all the decades it’s mostly comprised of the 80′s. Songs like ” “It’s a Hard Life”, “Don’t Try So Hard”, “A Winter’s Tale” are in “Forever.” If you happen to buy the deluxe Forever version you will have extra 16 songs such as “Jealousy”, “One Year Of Love”, and “Is This The World That We Created… ?” This must be a collection of songs that is Queen approved. I am delighted, cause I have always agreed that each song that is on “Forever” were the better Queen songs. So personally it’s fitted for me, and I hope that is fitted to your taste as well. Another thing before I close my review. For you people who are unfamiliar with Queen let me tell you this. Most rock singers can sing fast songs, but are horrible at ballads. When you slow the tempo you can hear the singers’ tone quality. These slower songs show the strength of Freddie Mercury as a singer. For you first-timers that buy this album I hope that it will lead you to be Queen fans forever.
