Original UK vinyl cover.

The Miracle is the thirteenth studio album by Queen. It's mostly hard rock and pop rock with a bit of experimental sounds as is typical of the band. It was produced by David Richards and the band and published on 1989-05-22.

Personal

This was one of the later Queen albums I bought. I already knew of I Want It All and The Miracle from compilations, but I was surprised to hear the album versions were markedly different, and, to this day, I prefer the single versions. I knew of Breakthru from a Queen documentary, so I was eager to hear that song, and I really liked it, and Was It All Worth It was a surprise gem. I initially liked the two intro tracks when I first started listening to the album, but I now see them as the low point of the album, and I wasn't that impressed by the other songs. This is my least favorite of Queen's studio albums.

Status

I own a CD of the Hollywood Records release.
