Innuendo would turn out to be Queen’s swan song, as it was the last album released during vocalist Freddie Mercury’s lifetime–he passed away several months after the album’s release. Expanding on the successful back-to-basics sound of 1989’s THE MIRACLE, Innuendo was another solid outing. And like it’s predecessor, it contains several tracks with lyrics that are clearly autobiographical for the band and especially Mercury, particularly “These Are the Days of Our Lives” and “The Show Must Go On,” which deal with the topic of mortality. Not all of Innuendo deals with serious topics, however–“I’m Going Slightly Mad” and “Delilah” both contain humorous lyrics and were designed to be taken lightheartedly. The epic title track, which opens the album, is an instant Queen classic on first listen, built similarly in structure to past Queen classics “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “Somebody to Love.” A pair of wonderful hard rockers, “The Hitman” and “Headlong” can be found on Innuendo, as can a couple of lush ballads–“Don’t Try So Hard” and “Bijou.” Looking back, Queen went out on a definite high note with Innuendo.

    This album is amazing. Freddie was at the end of his life and he knew it. The lyrics are haunting but it’s tough to find a bad song here. In my opinion, Freddie went out on top and it makes me truly sad when I think of how much more great music we would have, had he not passed. Every member of the band shines on this album and each song truly portrays the love they had not only for music, but for each other. Do yourself a favor and give this one a listen… then listen again and again.
