Reviewer Rating. The first attempt at this was to remix his sole solo album, Mr. The irony of all this is that the original Mr. Bad Guy is an excellent pop album to begin with, and better than most solo albums released by mega-rock band singers. Bad Guy: Special Edition Cheap An Nasty - Whitesnake - mp3 so confounding.
His family and heirs are entitled to that. But, what is there to be gained by mildly distorting the original product into a bastard of what it truly is? The sound team here take the original master tapes and process them into crisp, clear versions.
But then, after doing so, instead of maintaining the original integrity of the songs, they proceed to add mild tweaks and changes to the albums which serve no purpose except to make it slightly different than the original release, and in pretty much every case, make it worse and weirder but not weirder in a good way.
Gone are the complex semi-prog stylings of Queen, now replaced with simple, but catchy synth beats, dramatic ballads, and dance rhythms.
Nothing on Bad Guy was especially deep or innovative, but it did show that Freddie could make a pop record with the best of him and his over-the-top personae was Freddie Mercury - Mr. Bad Guy & Remixes suited for a genre that was built on the basis of going over-the-top. Why do this? Extra echo is dropped on random vocal lines throughout why do this? The changes Freddie Mercury - Mr. Bad Guy & Remixes never rise beyond confusing and annoying.
Nothing here is radically different- just random parts are chopped or pinched. The original version is just a great pop album. Why mash it up now? In fact, a few years ago, a Russian bootleg company reissued the album without authorization and appended most of the b-sides tracks as bonuses.
