5.0 out of 5 stars A missed opportunity, 23 Nov 2014
This review is from: Forever (Audio CD)
Five stars for the music...

...However it is a rather weak cash-in program.
A single CD edition plus a two CD set. That's it. Nothing more than that. Hmm.

A missed opportunity to create what could have made this a real cash-in program for Christmas:
- a Limited Edition 4xLP box set signed by the (remaining) band members.
- a Super Deluxe Edition 3xCD set (including more previously released tracks).
- an Ultimate Deluxe Edition including 3xCD + Interview DVD + T-shirt + Poster + Marbles + Tote bag + Mug.
- 17 variations of the 1-disc set, each with a slightly different track selection for various countries.
- a Blu-ray Pure Audio.

What a pity.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable... bootleg., 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
As previous reviewers mentioned, this is a welcome reissue to any PSB fan.
Nevertheless, this is not an official Japanese release... but a bootleg.
Keep it in mind if you are about to purchase this set!

5.0 out of 5 stars For both the casual listener and the dedicated fan, 18 Feb 2014
On the one hand, this is a perfect introduction to the label to newcomers. Great selection of tracks. Intelligent split between the hits on disc one and the less familiar, yet excellent, tracks on disc two.

On the other hand, amongst the majority of previously released tracks, this also offers a few rarities for the label's dedicated fan. For instance a new version of 'When Your Heart Runs Out of Time' by Glenn Gregory & Claudia Brücken, or the previously unreleased 7" version of 'Sleepwalking' by Instinct.

Overall this compilation is a pleasure to listen to – the sequencing works well – and is a more effective introduction to the label's varied catalogue than the 3xCD+DVD box set released some years ago.

3.0 out of 5 stars A rather pointless release..., 22 Sep 2013
This review is from: Icon (Audio CD)
Five stars for the music...but only one star for the relevance of the release.

This doesn't fill any gap in Queen's catalogue. Previously released compilations already perfectly introduce Queen's hits (See "Greatest Hits" series and "Absolute Greatest") and album tracks (See " Deep Cuts" series).

There are gaps in Queen's catalogue, e.g. no B-sides compilation, no 12inch versions compilation; but unfortunately that's not what this new release is about...

1.0 out of 5 stars WARNING... MISPRESSED!, 22 Sep 2013
This review is from: The Best Of Propaganda (Audio CD)
I just acquired this 2CD set, and was really happy listening to CD1... and very disappointed listening to CD2.
Both discs, although carrying their individual proper artwork and individual matrix number, contain the tracks originally planned for CD1!

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an original album of new recordings by Paul Hardcastle..., 25 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
...not a 'Various' collection as wrongly listed by Amazon!

Paul Hardcastle delivers here an excellent house album, an unusual style for him, traditionally known for his electro and smooth jazz works.
The second disc contains the album remixed by Nacho Marco, and is as good as the original album on the first disc.

Last but not least... both discs are continuous DJ mixes, to keep you dancing!
