You gotta get this,
This review is from: Queen, The DVD Collection: Greatest Video Hits 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Well, I feel it's always best to get the minus points out of the way in a review. There's only one so let's get it over with. I found with this DVD that the re-mastering of the soundtrack to DTS 5.1, although superb, often left poor old freddie's voice rather faded in the background. Perhaps this was a fault with my set up and I would be interested to hear other peoples comments. I found it particularly noticeable in the closing part of Bohemian Rhapsody, "so you think you can stop me etc". Anyway, other than that what a fantastic DVD set this is. Overall the re-mastering of the soundtrack does the music justice bringing out the background vocals and riffs to the full. I have owned this collection on video and cd and I was suprised to hear things which I never knew existed. The picture quality is fine but not excellent. Most of this is older stuff and in some videos it does tend to show. There's more than enough on the two discs on the value for money front and I cannot wait for the second collection to come out in November. Finally, congratulations to David Mallet for finding some of the unused footage for the Bicycle Race video. What a fine collection of frames, (ooh er missus). The bikes ain't bad either! Buy it yesterday.
