Such a shame that when you look at the customer reviews of this product they almost all relate to the earlier CD release of Queen's second greatest hits package and not the 2011 remastered versions. After all, how are potential purchasers of this product really meant to know what they are paying for when the reviews do not fit the product?

Hopefully, this review will re-dress the balance slightly. After receiving my copies of Greatest Hits I and II earlier this week I can safely say that whatever you may think of the songs on the CD, and let's be fair there is a bit of mixture ranging from the outstanding (The Show Must Go On, I Want It All, Innuendo and Who Wants To Live Forever) to the somewhat more pedestrian (The Invisible Man, Friends Will Be Friends, The Miracle and Breakthru'), the sound quality of these re-masters more than make the money paid for these CD's worth it.

Never before has the band's music sounded so clear and be of such high quality that you really feel you were there in the studio as the band were recording them (if only!). Of course, these releases mark the first of a whole year of re-releases to mark Queen's 40th anniversary and their move to Island Records and all I can say is that if the rest of the year's releases sound as good as this then the money being spent by Queen fans on re-buying their albums will be more than worth it. Add into the mix many of the albums are likely to feature never before released tracks and rare single b-sides 2011 is going to be a good year for Queen fans to say the least.

However, back to Greatest Hits II...and the music. Whatever anyone thinks of Queen's 80's and 90's albums really depends on when they got into the band.

Not much new that one can add about Queen and their enduring music. I probably prefer the Volume 1 to this one, simply because their music became a bit too poppy and commercial during this stage of their career. That being said, most of these are classics in their own right. The sound from the latest 2011 remaster is what sets this collection (and Vol.1) apart from any previous editions, including the DTS96/24 & LPCM DVD version of the early 2,000's. The sound has depth, warmth and clarity and covers a wide frequency range which is so different to both the original transfers and the terribly sounding high flat frequency CD's & DVD's issued at the turn of the millennia. This is as close to the ol' vinyl sound that you will get (for now). Play it on a proper hi-fi with proper speakers though. A MP3 player just won't do it justice...

Wow, what can I say, five stars isn't enough. This compilation proves that Queen were one of the best rock bands ever to grace this planet. From the disco sound of 'A kind of magic' to the pulsating hard rock force of 'one vision': from the silly foolishness of 'I'm going slightly mad' to the deep phylisophical lyrics of 'Who wants to live forever', there is a song for everyone on this album.
Queen ventured through so many musical styles throughout their career it's hard to believe they got away with it. But then again, that's what I like about Queen, they didn't care whether their songs were commercially successful or not. They wrote their own style of music and just hoped that it pleased their fans. Although songs like 'Who wants to live forver' and 'The show must go on' didn't get much chart sucess for their times, they are now more well known than most number ones from a few years ago! This alone proves what a great band they were, and they won't be forgotten for a long time yet.
To people who are starting out with Queen and are not sure which album to buy, all can say is that if you are looking for the more famous Queen songs with a typical Queen sound, then get Greatset Hits 1. To those who want to jump ahead to the more evolved side of Queen, get this CD.

Firstly my review is for the original CD release. I have heard the re-mastered version as well and it certainly convinced me that the initial release is certainly the best. As is often the case re-mastering the original tapes can make the sound far too clinical and rather sterile. Either way this CD saved me as I have never been a massive fan but liked all the later singles and had no intention of buying the studio albums to get them as I often felt that Queen often tended to try to be just a bit too clever. And finally, that man Freddie - Without doubt THE best frontman that has ever lived, bar none! Don't play this very often but always enjoy it when I do.

With this 2011 edition of the follow-up to the biggest selling album of all time in the UK, you are able to hear the later hits of one of our most iconic rock bands in all their digitally remastered glory.

'Greatest Hits II' was originally released in 1991, ten years after the first volume, and carries on the Queen story from 1981 to the start of a new decade, in which time they had chalked up a further stream of hit singles, and most of these highlights are captured on here.

With such stone-cold classics as 'A Kind of Magic', 'I Want to Break Free', 'Radio Ga Ga', and 'I Want it All' all on the one disc, this is an excellent instant showcase of the later work of Freddie Mercury and his men, and deserves it's place in any self-respecting British rock fan's CD collection. As well as the very famous anthems, there were plenty of lesser played hits that were new to me.

The album's booklet contains detailed information about each track, with the singles' cover sleeve printed next to it, as well as some excellent colour pictures of the four boys throughout. See also: Greatest Hits, and if you buy the first volume in this series, the biggest selling album UK history, you'll have instant access to all the classics, and virtually every Queen song you're likely to hear played on the radio.
