I am absolutely mad for two things: Queen and the “Highlander” movie. Put the two togehter, and you have one great concept. This album was born out of the songwriting sessions for the “Highlander” film, although you can’t exactly say that the album is a soundtrack album. The music definitely stands on its own. I know that in the 1980’s Queen was not that popular, but the fact that this album was overlooked is next to unforgivable. The beautiful “Who Wants to Live Forever” is one of the best songs ever written. The wonderful ballads combined with greats such as “Princes of the Universe” and the title track add up to one of the most essential 80’s Queen albums. I only wish I could have seen these songs performed live.
