5.0 out of 5 stars Queen at their very best 31 Dec 2011
By markr TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
When Queen II was released the band were just begining to break big. This album appeared before, but not long before, Killer Queen, Bohemian Rhapsody, or Somebody to Love were album tracks or the massive and iconic single hits they became.

It was clear then from Queen II, and it is absolutely obvious now, that Queen were going to be huge. The album was split into the White side, beautiful and lyrical; and the Black side, still beautiful, but harder rock. It contains some of the most fantastic music Queen, and i would argue, anyone, ever made. White Queen from the White side is a song of true beauty - for me their best ever.

For many Queen fans this is their best album - and despite some truly great albums to come, this one is certainly hard to beat

The remastering is excellent.

Buy this - you won't regret it

5.0 out of 5 stars Richer and Fuller Sound 14 Jan 2012
By Mr. Ross Maynard VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
To be honest I didn't expect a big difference in sound between this 2011 remaster and the "original" CD version. In fact the difference is quite surprising. This 2011 remaster gives a richer fuller sound with clearer vocals, making an already fantastic album even better. Queen II is one of the group's best albums and, with "Queen" and "Sheer Heart Attack", forms a triptych of their early (and best) music. Indeed, "Queen II" and "Sheer Heart Attack", although issued several months apart in 1974, form a sort of double album. "I do like to be beside the seaside" forms the playout groove of "Queen II" and plays us into the brilliant "Brighton Rock at the start of "Sheer Heart Attack".

Queen II is glam rock at its most amazing. Wildly over the top, and yet full of emotion and poetry. If you think "Bohemian Rhapsody" is Queen at their best (it appeared on a later album), then you'll find the operatic vocals, the heavy rock solos, the changes of tempo, and the moving ballads done much better on Queen II.

I bought the double CD version of the 2011 remaster though, overall, I would recommend the single CD version. The five tracks on the bonus CD are really not worth an extra 7. The BBC version of "Nevermore" is great - perhaps better than the album version - but the other tracks are also-rans strictly for the enthusiast.

So a brilliant remaster of one of their best albums, but stick to the single CD unless you are a real hardcore fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars His songs and the group will not be forgotten. 15 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can one say about QUEEN they were the best, Freddy Mercury was a sensational showman and dominated the stage in his live shows. It is a very sad loss, he should have taken more care in those days, he must have aware of Aids, as it was rampant at that time amongst the Gay Community.
