2 stars Innuendo ? 1991 (2/5) a solid 2 for once! 8 ? Best Song: Innuendo

As with all returns to the salts of the earth, indebted to the more open minded nature of the 1990's, we arrive back where we began. I'm typing here, and it's inessential. My thoughts and feelings on popular music are fairly inconsequential. It doesn't matter if I like Innuendo more than A Kind of Magic or Miracle, but still think all three suck far too much to be actually worth listening to. They took the last gasp of life in Freddie Mercury and released the most serious and 'important' album fo their entire careers, which is to say hardly meaningful at all. They tackle racism like it were a Hispanic mother calling an African American batter the 'N' word at a major league baseball game ? like some silly hallucination we've been experiencing for a few weeks and it'll all go away once the lawsuits and media coverage stops to a halt.

At the very least they're giving May a bigger hand in things, leading to a few good moments on the album that don't totally piss me off. In all, though, the title track is possibly the angriest thing Queen has ever been responsible. The rest of the songs take the aesthetic facets to Queen and apply them to more modern techniques, just like every other era of Queen. 'I Can't Live With You' is plaintively saddening. This is what they've become, a melodically derailed pop rock band without any damned vision? It's painfully generic, and I can't fucking stand the boring loop groove of 'Delilah'. Take it from me and leave the legacy back before 1981. It's diverse, and 'Hitman' rocks like a beast, but being diverse at this stage is just layman's terms for 'sucking in multiple ways'.

Alitare | 2/5 |
