CD REVIEW Freddie Mercury      

Band : Freddie Mercury
Album title : The Great Pretender
Label : Eagle Vision
Distributor : PIAS
Release Date : 24/09/2012
Release : DVD

Queen was a great band, thanks to a brilliant guitarist, and an energizing, charismatic singer.  When Freddie Mercury died, they should have called it a day, because the one album they released afterwards with Paul Rodgers to me was one album too many.

As for the solo work of Freddie it is different from his work with Queen but on the other hand it also has similarities. I personally like some of his solo songs, but not all of them.
This DVD release is something for real fans though.  It contains unseen footage and even a very short part about Freddie’s collaboration with Michael Jackson ‘There Must Be More To Life Than This’, a song that was never released.

Not really something for me though.  I’m not that big a fan of music documentaries.

70/100
