Looking for the cream of Queen? Then look no further...,
This review is from: Absolute Greatest (Audio CD)
Chances are, if you're a big Queen fan and own their albums and/or their earlier 'Greatest Hits' albums you'll pretty much have every brilliant track on offer here. This collection is not an album aimed at you. You have no need to purchase it.
If however, you are new to the musical delights of Queen (and if you are, you are in for a real treat) or are a casual fan who'd like to have all their biggest hits on one compilation, then this collection is for you. This album contains 20 of their all time greatest songs, and there isn't a duff track here. Each one is an absolute classic rock gem.
Yes, Queen fans can, with some justification, complain about record companies cashing in on the back catalogue once again with a compilation that has nothing new to offer, but I really think naysayers are missing the point of this album; it's to get the casual fan or uninitiated interested in one of the most unique, inventive and fun bands ever created.
Thats got to be a good thing isn't it?
