I wouldn't say they "suck," and I do like "Ringtone," but I think this is a pretty fair complaint and a rare case of Al not perfecting a style parody. When Queen did epics--and they did them fairly often, especially in the 70s--they went all out in every department. Even when it was just Freddie Mercury, Brian May and Roger Taylor singing the harmonies, the way it was produced managed to turn it into what sounded like a massive operatic choir. The harmonies on "Ringtone"...are obviously just one voice and it sounds triple-tracked at most, if not just slathered in some sort of vocal effect. Al really should've gone bigger in this department.
