1.0 out of 5 stars And still it comes......., 10 Sep 2009

This review is from: Absolute Greatest (Audio CD)
When will they learn? The Queen boys, which today means Brian May and Roger Taylor, can't seem to help themselves. Endless, and more pertinently, pointless reissues of their hits, which are surely owned several times over by everyone who cares by now, may help bolster their bank balances but do nothing for enhancing the affection in which they are held by their fans. What makes May and Taylor think that anyone wanted a CD abbreviating Greatest Hits I, II and III into one disc? Clearly May and Taylor are more interested in something that can shift a few units in HMV over Christmas, something designed for the casual listener, something aimed at younger listeners who are only curious about Queen because of their influence on The Feeling or Mika. Yet again, the long-term fans of old are not on the agenda. If they were, May and Taylor would be releasing a box-set of rare Queen material. But this doesn't look like happening. What a shame. Aside from a nice photo on the sleeve, I can't see anything interesting about this at all.

Probably more down to EMI's decision to release this disc which I don't need. Roger/Brian/John probably don't see the sense in this release either. As mentioned it's probably a cash in by EMI. In saying that there is maybe a market among the younger people who are into Muse and these other influenced bands who want a 3 decaded flavour of Queen. Like Porno if you wanna watch it, go ahead if not don't object to it's availability for those who do.

Roger Taylor was on BBC Breakfast this morning promoting it. He seemed to be quite happy to accept more readies coming in, but he can't have much else to do these days.

Well, if he doesn't promote it, it won't sell. And if it doesn't sell, they'll get dropped from the label. The artist really doesn't have much choice when it comes to Best-of collections.
