5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT START, 23 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Queen [2011 Remaster Deluxe 2CD Edition] (Audio CD)
Listening to this as the first album remaster of Queen was a pleasant surprise, because I found the quality of the Greatest Hits a bit hit-and-miss. The big test on this LP is 'Liar'. The sound is simply colossal, with massed guitars, thumping drums and suspicious bass. The rough, assertive vocals intrude in an almost ugly way. You can even hear Mercury or Taylor yell out 'RIGHT' during the second intro.

This album has not all of a sudden gained supreme sonic beauty. There's still a bunch of crazy edits and tape strain going on, but that's how the original album sounded and that's what we Queen fans want to hear-- the band striving to fill every available space on the sound spectrum.

The heaviness has been emphasized and that's a good thing. Perhaps this will lead to many people discovering this wildly adventurous debut for the first time.
