Queen: A Symphonic Spectacular - Another Kind of Magic

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Jason Birchmeier
Queen: A Symphonic Spectacular - Another Kind of Magic features Martin Yates performing a hefty number of Queen's better-known songs in a symphonic style. This album spans two discs with a total of 24 songs, though none of the songs are especially epic like you might expect considering this album's symphonic emphasis. All the favorites are here: "We Are the Champions," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "We Will Rock You," "Innuendo," and many more. If you're a Queen loyalist, you can't help but marvel at these interpretations, even if you're not an admirer of symphonic music. If you're not particularly a big Queen fan, you probably won't find much...
