Such a shame that when you look at the customer reviews of this product they almost all relate to the earlier CD release of Queen's second greatest hits package and not the 2011 remastered versions. After all, how are potential purchasers of this product really meant to know what they are paying for when the reviews do not fit the product?

Hopefully, this review will re-dress the balance slightly. After receiving my copies of Greatest Hits I and II earlier this week I can safely say that whatever you may think of the songs on the CD, and let's be fair there is a bit of mixture ranging from the outstanding (The Show Must Go On, I Want It All, Innuendo and Who Wants To Live Forever) to the somewhat more pedestrian (The Invisible Man, Friends Will Be Friends, The Miracle and Breakthru'), the sound quality of these re-masters more than make the money paid for these CD's worth it.

Never before has the band's music sounded so clear and be of such high quality that you really feel you were there in the studio as the band were recording them (if only!). Of course, these releases mark the first of a whole year of re-releases to mark Queen's 40th anniversary and their move to Island Records and all I can say is that if the rest of the year's releases sound as good as this then the money being spent by Queen fans on re-buying their albums will be more than worth it. Add into the mix many of the albums are likely to feature never before released tracks and rare single b-sides 2011 is going to be a good year for Queen fans to say the least.

However, back to Greatest Hits II...and the music. Whatever anyone thinks of Queen's 80's and 90's albums really depends on when they got into the band.

Not much new that one can add about Queen and their enduring music. I probably prefer the Volume 1 to this one, simply because their music became a bit too poppy and commercial during this stage of their career. That being said, most of these are classics in their own right. The sound from the latest 2011 remaster is what sets this collection (and Vol.1) apart from any previous editions, including the DTS96/24 & LPCM DVD version of the early 2,000's. The sound has depth, warmth and clarity and covers a wide frequency range which is so different to both the original transfers and the terribly sounding high flat frequency CD's & DVD's issued at the turn of the millennia. This is as close to the ol' vinyl sound that you will get (for now). Play it on a proper hi-fi with proper speakers though. A MP3 player just won't do it justice...

Queen's 2nd Greatest Hits package is a solid collection of material gleaned mostly from the 1980s with the brilliant 'Under Pressure' (featuring David Bowie), 'It's A Hard Life', 'Who Wants To Live Forever' and the gorgeous 'Innuendo' standing out as my favourite tracks. Throw into the mix superb anthems such as 'I Want It All', 'I Want To Break Free', 'Radio Ga Ga', 'A Kind Of Magic' and 'One Vision' and you have a very potent brew albeit one that lacks the sheer brilliance of 'Greatest Hits I'. My main gripe is the fact that the lovely 'Las Palabras De Amor' has been sidelined here and could easily have replaced one of several rather dull songs which actually charted much lower. Anyway, this album is well worth buying just to remind you how good the band were in the period leading up to the untimely demise of Freddie Mercury.

Wow, what can I say, five stars isn't enough. This compilation proves that Queen were one of the best rock bands ever to grace this planet. From the disco sound of 'A kind of magic' to the pulsating hard rock force of 'one vision': from the silly foolishness of 'I'm going slightly mad' to the deep phylisophical lyrics of 'Who wants to live forever', there is a song for everyone on this album.
Queen ventured through so many musical styles throughout their career it's hard to believe they got away with it. But then again, that's what I like about Queen, they didn't care whether their songs were commercially successful or not. They wrote their own style of music and just hoped that it pleased their fans. Although songs like 'Who wants to live forver' and 'The show must go on' didn't get much chart sucess for their times, they are now more well known than most number ones from a few years ago! This alone proves what a great band they were, and they won't be forgotten for a long time yet.
To people who are starting out with Queen and are not sure which album to buy, all can say is that if you are looking for the more famous Queen songs with a typical Queen sound, then get Greatset Hits 1. To those who want to jump ahead to the more evolved side of Queen, get this CD.

Released shortly before Freddie's death in 1991, Greatest Hits 2 is a fitting tribute to one of (if not THE) greatest bands of all time. The album covers queen's highlights from the early 80's to the early 90's, and arguably surpasses the first Greatest Hits collection. Whilst none of the tracks here may not match the likes of 'Bohemian Rhapsody' or 'We Are The Champions', we are left with a much more consistent compilation.

The album kicks off with 'A Kind Of Magic', a soaring pop hit. The other more mainstream hits include 'Radio Ga Ga' and 'I Want To Break Free'. 'Who Wants To Live Forever' and 'The Show Must Go On' are two of the most moving ballads Queen ever produced.

What sets this compilation apart from the first though, are the harder, rockier songs. Queen's stadium rock songs seemed to rock harder than ever before. This may explain why this album isn't as universally appreciated as the first. 'I Want It All', 'Breakthrough', 'Hammer To Fall' and 'One Vision' still get my adrenaline rushing every time I hear them. And 'The Miracle' and 'Innuendo' proves that Queen still had that 'Bohemian Rhapsody' style in them.

This is an album no Queen fan should be without, even if you are not as familiar with these hits than those of the first collection, please take the risk and get this album - you won't be dissapointed.
