I wouldve picked it slightly differently, but doesnt everyone say that?

In my opinion, swap 'Jealousy' and 'Action this day' for 'If you cant beat them' and 'All dead, all dead' and it would be a perfect compilation for 77-82. The stand out tracks on this album are 1) It's Late - this is a bit of an epic with a great chorus and Freddie belting out some sensational vocals. 2) Spread your wings - what can I say?! This song is a favourite amongst Queen fans and I always feel sorry for Sammy when I listen to it! One of my favourite ever songs. 3) Put out the fire - classic rock track which contrasted from the other tracks on Hot Space, Brians guitar sounds great on it.
Its hard to believe that this is a selection of tracks that are not greatest hits. I dont think any other band thats existed could release a B-side style album of such high quality (and thats not even including Deep Cuts 1 and 3!) I highly recommend this album to anyone that appreciates good music, particularly rock.
