1 stars Dissappointment. Even, if we lower the criteria for a band that went pop long time ago, this was nothing but disappointment. Did I ever metioned I hate CD singles? Being the same size as the album, a box a bit thinner, holding a music of length suitable for an EP in vinyl era. Which is not a bad thing per se, but here's an example what happens when there is no thing to fill the supportive area for a single, the thing that used to be called B side back in time. 'Spread Your Wing', 'We Will Rock You', 'We Are The Champions'. Bleah. Enough. Fed up. And a title track, 'Too Much Love Will Kill You' - rearranged ballad already done on Brian May's 'Back To The Light' album, this time sung by Freddie! So, the newest song is 4 years old, and everything else is a dissection of history. Again.

1 stars Single from MADE IN HEAVEN 1996. As good as Queen could be there always seems to be something really really bad to balance it out. For every QUEEN II there is a HOT SPACE. And for every "Bohemian Rhapsody" there is a "Too Much Love Will Kill You". A very sappy and sweet ballad sung by Freddie. Of course, his voice is as amazing as ever, but hearing him sing this pap is painful. And the obligatory Brian May guitar solo near the end. I can almost picture the montage video that probably went with this. Right now I feel like I need to go listen to "Orge Battle" to get the taste of this marshmallow out of my mouth. Almost 1 star.
