4 stars A very nice 80's live album by Queen, recorded July 27th 1986 at the Nepstadion, Budapest, Hungary. The Magic Tour was the last tour the band did as Taylor/May/Deacon/Mercury.

Most live albums by Queen are from the eighties (only recently did they release a couple of 70's live albums), so most of the songs on this album are already on other live albums (Wembley, Montreal etc.). On the other hand this album shows a very playful Queen, especially during the acoustic section (where they play the rock'n'roll medley in acoustic form, and end in pure heavy rock'n'roll).

The rest of the album rocks really nice. The production is very good, Freddy has a powerful voice and the drums/guitar sound amazing. I can highly recommended this live album to all Queen-fans and rock-fans. This is a rock (with rock'n'roll segments) party album, not a progressive rock-album. But eventually a very good live-album.

Eventually it's almost the same as Live at Wembley, but the overall sound is better.

Kingsnake | 4/5 |
