Since Queen was all about the excess, it comes as no surprise that their frontman was the leader in that department.
Freddie Mercury was one of the foremost man-divas in rock, unfortunately, "The Great Pretender" is not the showcase it should be. It's strange how you can be a fan of Queen, a band known for their genre breaking style, yet knock a remix which makes it a bit more techno-like. Queen fans are well known for their dislike of remixes and for the most part, they are misguided for hating this album.
This CD features, for the most part, remixes or complete reworkings of songs off the "Mr. Bad Guy" album. If you've never heard that particular album, you haven't missed much as Freddie, for whatever reason, filled it to the brim with horribly cheesy synths which marks them forever with a bad 80's sound.
In it's original form, it barely made the top 50 on the UK singles chart yet when it was remixed in , it went to 1 and I believe that says something. It was brilliantly done, updating it for the 90's, giving it a faster, techno beat.

Another great example is "Love Kills" which, oddly enough, was a synth dance number in it's original form but now they made a kicking rock song out of it! Let it be known that a good number of other "remixes" on here aren't all that different from the originals like "Time" and "In My Defence" which were taken from a musical.
Tori Amos would love this one. This is the best of Freddie's solo releases and yes, I believe he would've loved the new versions See all 20 reviews. Pages with related products.
