Brian May said that he “thinks” that the posthumous Queen album “Made In Heaven” (1995) that was made with previous Freddie Mercury recorded vocals is his favorite because of the dept and the meaning of the record.

“It was very weird. It was traumatizing in itself. I spent hours and days and weeks working on little bits of Freddie’s vocals. Listening to Freddie the whole day and the whole night. I’d have moments thinking ‘This is great…this sounds great…Fre…oh you’re not here’.”

“It was quite difficult. You’d have to go away from it sometimes and recover and come back. But I felt this immense pride and joy in squeezing the last drops out of what Freddie left us.”

“I still love that album. I think it’s my favorite Queen album. There are things in there that are so deep. There’s pure gold in there. I love every minute of that album,” Brian May said.

With recordings from 1980, 1991, 1993 and 1995 used, Queen’s fifteenth and final studio album. It debuted at number 1 in the United Kingdom and went quadruple platinum selling 1.2 million copies in the country.
