4.0 out of 5 stars Queen Rocks, 28 April 2008
By 
Jane Aland (England) - See all my reviews
(VINE VOICE)   
This review is from: Queen Rocks (Audio CD)
OK, so this is a pretty unnecessary compilation album of Queen's heavier side, though it's impossible to argue with the quality of the material on offer.

What makes this really worthwhile for the non-casual fan however are the two new tracks - 'No-One But You' doesn't really fit in with the theme of the album, being more of a ballad, but it's nice to hear Brian and Roger sharing vocals on this tribute to Freddie. There's also a 'retake' of 'I Can't Live With You', which basically seems to involve Brian, Roger and John going back and re-recording some of the guitar, drum and bass parts of the song while (obviously) retaining Freddie's vocals. It's not THAT different from the version on 'Innuendo', but it's still worthwhile hearing a new take.

By it's very nature, this will appeal either to those casual fans who haven't yet decided to take the plunge and buy the bands complete back catalogue, and the hardcore faithful after the 2 new songs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not just their "Greatest Hits" recycled!, 27 Mar 2002

A great rock album demonstrating Queen at their best. If you're still discovering the music of Queen, buy Hits I, II & III first, then maybe "Innuendo", "The Works" or "A Kind of Magic" then try this as an intro to some of their rockier, heavier material.
If you like the sound of "Tie Your Mother Down", "Keep Yourself Alive" or "Stone Cold Crazy" then you're ready to start discovering the early albums, so get a copy of "A Day at the Races" whilst if "Tear it Up", "Put Out the Fire" or "I Can't Live With You" is more your taste then check out their later stuff including "Innuendo" or perhaps "The Game".
A great selection, despite it borrowing heavy from some of the "Hits" collections!

4.0 out of 5 stars Review of "Queen Rocks", 30 Sep 2000
By A Customer
This review is from: Queen Rocks (Audio CD)
If you are an ardent Queen fan you have probably have most of these tracks on other albums. It is still an excellent album in it's own right however. The album's final track "No-one but you" is a touching ballad which breaks up the overall tempo of the album. Some of the old favourites are there along with a few of the less well known tracks certified as classics by the Queen fans. A perefct introduction to Queen music and if you've never heard "Tear it up", that's worth the money alone. Rock music at it's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh come on. It's Queen. Rocking!, 9 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Queen Rocks (Audio CD)
When I was a kid my dad used to take me out on the trucks with him to numerous parts of the UK. He worked for a large motor company and was a huge fan of Queen.
This CD reminds me of being five years to ten years old, singing along with my dad and trucking down the motorway across England while high fiving to Queen. I love it. You should love it too.

It's Queen, and they're rocking out! Go listen to every song on this on the internet, then buy it because it's great!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent compilitaion more for fans, 28 May 2010

This review is from: Queen Rocks (Audio CD)
I'm not so sure this compilation would really appeal to casual Queen fans, or the general public, as it features some of Queens more obscure, less accessible classics. However, the track listing is very generous, and the quality of music is excellent. Paricular highlights are 'Keep Yourself Alive', and 'Sheer Heart Attack'. What also makes this cd stand out from most best ofs is that the songs included on here are the album versions, which usually have extra middle sections, and longer intro's than the single versions you might find on greatest hits 1, 2 and 3.

Queen at their best full of fast paced rock classics with the odd Ballard just to round it off. Excellent
