- "Funny Aneurysm" Moment: "I'm Going Slightly Mad" is a silly song, full of weird metaphors, but once you learn it was written reflecting Freddie's real-life AIDS dementia...
- One-Scene Wonder: Steve Howe plays a few seconds of flamenco guitar on the title track, but that's one of the most famous parts of the song and album.
- Tear Jerker: This album was Freddie Mercury saying goodbye...
- Tough Act to Follow: As the album was so well-received by the fans and the public in general, a lot of what they have done since is usually measured up against it. That includes their solo careers.
YMMV / Innuendo
