One of the most beautiful experience in music. When the Genius of Rock Freddie Mercury meets the Classic Opera singer Monserrat Caballé.
When I bought the LP in 1987 I was 19 yo and I thought he was crazy, after a worlwide success like "Mr. Bad Guy", to release a freak experiment like "Barcelona", but I was sooo wrong!!!
The whole album is a fascinating journey trough a universe of sounds where the two voices run trough and come together in a wonderful ensemble.
Considering that at that time the whole album was recorded using only the synthesizers the result is great, but now with the use of a proper orchestra the sound is completely different and the result is amazing.
Dear Freddie, can you hear now your Timeless Masterpiece sounding like you always ever wanted?I bet you can and now you're absolutely satisfied...it's a pity that you're not here with us to enjoy this.
I hope that next step will be a proper Opera to perform in the theaters, but with all the garbage that is outside pretending to be singers or artists, probably it's much much better that no one touch this Masterpiece!!!
The whole Box Set is a joy for the ears, for the soul and for the mind. Absolutely studied in every minute detail to offer the best experience to the listeners, worth every single cent I spent to buy it!
The highest moments in my opinon, except for the title track that is a classic evergreen, are "How can i go On" that contains a phrase reprise similarly in "The show must go on" 4 years later.
But you can't escape also to the infinite beauty of "Guide me home" or "The golden boy", "The fallen priest", and the lyrics and the music will capture you completely from the beginning to the end.
I truly reccomend the purchase of this Box Set, or at least of the re-edited CD, because it's a real must-have for every good and true music connoisseurs.
Thank you Freddie, God bless you.
