Yeah, I can understand why people wouldn't like their 'fruity' music. But again, that was Queen being Queen.
Comes down to taste I suppose but I really preferred their 80's pop and that can be arguably more fruity, although at least it was more of a signature sound. The Show Must Go On, Radio Ga Ga, A Kind of Magic, These Are the Days of Our Lives etc. will be the songs I'll go back to. As good as Bohemian Rhapsody is I'm seldom in a mood to listen to it.
Nobody will agree but I don't find A Day at / A Night At the Opera albums to be anything amazing either
