...gut...

Ein swacher CD von Queen, Ende 1980 !
*****
Toller Soundtrack!
***
Eigentlich ist Film wie OST zum vergessen..nicht alles wo Queen draufsteht ist auch königlich..
Ganz klar ihre schlechteste und unnötigste Arbeit, meine 3.66 werden abgerundet, da dies nur anstrengend ist..

Film na ja,aber der dazugehörige Soundtrack hat bewiesen
das " Queen" auch hier im Stande waren aussergewöhnilches zu leisten.Super Soundtrack...
******
Der Film ist in der Tat nicht weiter aufregend. Aber durch die Musik bekommt er fast schon die Qualität einer Parodie. Beides gehört zusammen. Insbesondere fällt das auf beim Flash-Theme und beim Battle-Theme. Und ich weiss nicht, was man über eine Filmmusik besseres sagen soll als dass sie die Optik so ergänzt, dass beides zusammen besser ist als jeder einzelne Bestandteil.
******
Man sollte das Album nicht als reguläres Queen Album ansehen, sondern eher als Soundtrack zu einem Film und da passt es ziemlich gut. Der Film ist natürlich absoluter Trash, aber da können Queen nichts für.
****
Im Gegensatz zu früheren Alben eher enttäuschend - in der Tat sollte man solche Soundtracks/ Trashs nicht vergleichen - aber...
auch ELO haben mit dem Xanadu-Soundtrack zur gleichen Zeit einen Bock geschossen. Und beide Filme, Flash & Xanadu haben bis heute ihr Geld n i c h t eingespielt
****
Mittelmässig!

Kult!!! 6+

Dank Flash Gordon wurde ich QUEEN-Fan.

Den Sci-Fi-Fantasy-Streifen nach Vorlage der Comics von Alex Raymond - ein typischer Dino-de-Laurentiis der frühen 80er, btw - liebe ich auch heute noch, genauso wie die Musik dazu.

Neben dem QUEEN-bekannten Rock von The Hero und dem Titelsong, sowie den hymnenhaften Synthie-Klängen vom Football Fight, beeindruckt hier vor allem The Kiss, samt den Orchestrationen und Freddies unvergleichlicher Stimme.

Damit nicht genug. Das Ming-Thema wirkt passend schön diabolisch. Nur als gelungen kann man auch die hier und da eingeworfenen Dialoge aus dem Film beschreiben und wenn Brian erstmal mit seiner Red Special den Hochzeitsmarsch spielt ...

Ähnlich wie später beim funkigen Hot Space stießen QUEEN mit diesem OST wohl einige Fans vor dem Kopf. Auf der anderen Seite beeindruckt das Album aber auch wiederum Musikbegeisterte, die mit dem restlichen Schaffenswerk der Band eher wenig anfangen können.

Flash Gordon, der Soundtrack, ist eben ein Ausnahmewerk und dennoch QUEEN durch und durch :-)

Ganz okay für einen Soundtrack.

Bueno.
*****
geht so - nicht gerade der Knaller, auch für einen Fan nicht
***
Die instrumentalen Titel des Soundtracks bekommen eine 3.
Als Untermalung des Films ist es ja ok, aber nicht als Musik zum Anhören.

Den Titelsong bekommt man auch anders.
***
... verzichtbar ... lieber den Film besorgen ...

4 stars

War meine erste Vinyl-Platte 1980, und der Beginn meiner Queen-Leidenschaft...
Die LP als solches besteht leider mehrheitlich aus kurzen Instrumentalsongs...
