EMI say "Thank Queen it's Christmas",
By A Customer
This review is from: Greatest Hits III (Audio CD)
This blatent attempt to cash in on Queen's unswervingly loyal fan base is just too much. The remaining hits ommitted from Hits 1 & 2 are not ALL included, SOME solo hits unfortunately are and some cover versions/collaborations too. The band and their management have been plagued by long serving fans to release good archive material, live recordings, and previously unreleased audio/video. This, they have yet to do!...Instead they remain intent to fire together "More Product" such as this. While most of the songs on this collection are excellent in themselves the manner in which songs were included/excluded from the collection will cause this CD to rest uneasily along side Hits 1 & 2. With the first two magnificent Greatest Hits albums EMI and Queen's management boasted - "How many bands could release 2 full length CD's and still end up leaving out hits along the way due to lack of space?"....Sadly the same cannot be said for this disaster.
