Queen - A Kind of Magic (1986) Part 3
Brian and Sarah are back and ready to wrap up their discussion on Queen's 1986 album "A Kind Of Magic." We've already mentioned that this record is the unofficial soundtrack to the film "Highlander", so we won't bring that up here. Instead, let's move on and see what our hosts have to offer this episode.
Part 3: Track by Track, continued
Alright, there is a lot to keep track of this week: Brian declares one of these songs to be the most beautiful ballad ever written. Sarah shares a URL for a blog which reviews every Queen album track and manages to be awesome and incredibly pretentious at the same time. B&S discuss how the words "Star Wars" have ceased to mean what they really mean and they also reveal which song on this record was hated by both Freddie Mercury and John Deacon.

Part 4: Extra Credit
Part of the reason Brian and Sarah chose to talk about Queen right now is because they recently saw Queen + Adam Lambert in concert. Here they talk briefly about the show and the performances they witnessed that night in Philadelphia, PA.
Part 5: Final Review and Rating
Brian and Sarah have explained how this album, back in 1991, kicked off a love affair with all things Queen and even resulted in them visiting London and a host of Queen-related locations. Now, here in 2017, they are being forced to assign a grade to the record. The pressure is on! How will Queen do?
