Unlike that movie, this is a full concert from Montreal and a great example of Queen at their creative peak. Most people these days who claim to be a Queen fan will instantly tell you that Live At Wembley was the best performance that this four piece band ever released. You can't deny that it was a great performance but what that album lacks is good sound and the endless supply of energy that the band had not more than five years before hand.
Queen Rock Montreal is a very fast paced brutal approach to the bands then greatest hits collection. In total, this is a blistering heavy set from Queen and I'm not sure it would appeal to those of only want Queen's Greatest Hits. This is not the pop rock group that these people remember but more like the heavy but flamboyant group from their '70s heyday.
I enjoyed the mix of Freddie, Roger and Brian's vocals, it gave a nice bit of variety between songs and it is nice to hear each band member perform the backing vocals without any help from a backing track, a bit of a rarity these days. But the rest of the record is very solid and definitely worth owning for a long time Queen fan.
In terms of sound, well this one is very nicely produced and has maintained both the big arena atmosphere and the raw power from the bands instruments. Cranking this record to high volume is extremely satisfying and sits toe to toe with Queen's best live albums. If you get the chance to pick up this now overly expensive live album, I suggest you do so.
There is very little to regret. Published by Steven Lornie of Demonszone. This is an aggressive Queen live set with with first 10 or so songs played at breakneck speed. The DVD commentary offers explanations for this the gigs were one-offs, and there was friction between the band and the filming crew. The fast and furious playing is great to hear from a band who are sometimes criticised for being too precise. The guitar playing and drums sound great, but are sometimes a little rushed as a result.
The singing however is amazing. Freddie's voice seemed to get rougher from to maybe as a result of smoking , but here it is perfect - clear and liquid, yet slightly frayed around the edges. The highlights are "Let me entertain you" for it's sheer pace and aggression, "Killer Queen" for the variations on the vocal, "Keep Yourself Alive" which unlike all the other songs is played at something closer to the pace of the original recording , the best rendition of "Love of My Life" that I have heard, and the two tracks from "Flash" which are missing from the DVD.
The reason for the 4 stars is that despite all the band's efforts, there is so little interaction with the crowd. BUY IT. Report abuse. The crowd is a little lame. Wish I could take their place in the front row!!!
This is great quality compared to the original release its dissapointing that 'The Hero' and 'Flash' have been left out on the DVD but remains on the CD and Triple Album Freddie's vocals are in fine form here and the Band play fast and intense I'm not too keen on the Hot Pants on Fred but he's certainly got gutz to wear them Product was great.
Fast shipping. And long live Freddie Mercury!!!Oct 29, · It was released on October 29, as a double CD, Blu-ray, and triple LP vinyl, and did modestly on the charts, reaching the top in several countries. The show was recorded in .
