5 stars O.K. , Innuendo is the last Queen record as an entire band (the last with Freddie alive). Well, the first song, innuendo, is BASICALLY a real queen-ish song with a dark style, it's a return to the early Rock n' roll Queen roots. It can be compared with Bohemian Rhapsody, in some way, because it can be divided in sections, like different mind- blowing guitar solos, vocal parts, chorus and more (it sounds like any prog-rock song). The second song, I'm going slightly mad, it's more like a dark-style ballad with stange keyboard sounds and a kind of elvis-ish vocal by freddie and it has a strange guitar solo by Brian with a slide. The next song, Headlong, in my opinion is the best song of the album together with The Show must go on.It is a fast rock n' roll with a mind-blowing guitar (solos too) and this early chorus by Queen (when it does hoop-diddy-diddy hoop-diddy-doo)and it has this cool reverse final (gnoldaeh-gnoldaeh). I can't live with you is a not so dark-ish song and it's more like a happy rock song,that it's the less attractive but it still is a good song. Don't try so hard is, I think the darkest song. You can hear a kind of orchestra and Freddie singing with a high voice. Ride the wild wind is maybe the strangest. You can hear some voices and echoed drums and keyboards. I would say this is a "Dark-prog- rock song".It's one of the best in this record. All GOD's people features a really powerfull chorus (it seems that there is a whole chorus singing, as in other early Queen songs.) Mike Moran plays keyboards here. These are the days of our lives is a good song with keyboards and percussion, as well as a guitar solo and very well played bass. Delilah is a song that Freddie dedicated to his CAT! The lyrics are a bit silly, but the music is fine, it's got background keyboard that souds amazing. The 10th song that is The Hitman.This song has a heavy-ish style with a heavy guitar, drums and vocals(and bass, of course). Bijou is a song that has a soft love-song style.The lyrics are short and has some good guitar parts. The show must go on has this orchestra beginning and then the bass joins and then the drums. Freddie starts singing in a high voice, but not so high. Later on in the song, the guitar joins with a head-knocking-mind-blowing guitar solo (in my opinion the best of the album).Then the record ends with the last word on an album with Queen (by Freddie)That is this "SHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWWWWW".It's an amazing record and hardcore Queen fans MUST get it now.
