2 stars I don't think this album is as bad as some people say, but it is correct to mention that "Live at Wembley '86" is better than this one, not only because all the concert was recorded, but also because the editions of the "Live Magic" are poorly done.

It also has another con...with the edition of the concert, they took out some songs that were the climax of the concerts of their tour "A kind of magic", like Love of my life (in which the 72 000 people in the stadium sang with Freddie and without him), Crazy little thing called love (where Freddie played the guitar), Now I'm here (A hit) and Tuttti Frutti (a country song) play by Queen in their tour.

I don't really recommend this album because of the production and because it doesn't have great songs such as the ones above :P, but I highly recommend the Live at Wembley '86, that is the complete concert and it is just awesome...that's why 72 000 people gathered in the Wembley Stadium and not only there, but in other parts of Europe. There is no doubt that Queen concerts were great shows and that Freddie was a genious in the stage, but the edition of this album is very poor. 1 star for the songs that remained complete after the edition :D and another star for the awesome show in stage. :D
