combination of witty, inventive, diverse music videos and three
hours of bonus features (interviews, documentaries, concert footage) has completely spoiled me for the dvd's being put out
by other artists!
I didn't watch much MTV growing up, so most of the videos were
completely new to me. In the utterly beguiling and aptly named "A
kind of magic" an elegantly caped magician (Freddie Mercury) takes over a grand old Victorian playhouse and transforms the
three indigent gentlemen (Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon) sheltering within into a rock band. Next up is "I want it all", an insistent, pounding manifesto of impatient entitlement. 1984's(!)"Radio ga-ga" is an ambitious spectacle
that intercuts footage from the classic film "Metropolis" with shots of the guys navigating a futuristic cityscape in a flying
car and leading a large rally in a raised fist, double handclap
salute that was immediately requisitioned by concert attendees
"Las palabras de amour" is Brian's gracious gracias
to Latin America for their unwavering support of Queen from the
earliest days to the present. And the justly celebrated video
for John's exhilaratingly adaptable "I want to break free" offers
the band in deliciously droll drag. Roger accomplishes the nigh
impossible by upstaging Freddie(gasp!) as a schoolgirl Lolita. The middle section has Freddie channeling Nijinsky with some
alarmingly underfed ballet dancers.
Brian's hauntingly beautiful and ethereal paean to undying love,"Who wants to live forever?" becomes a beautiful and
ethereal Queen video. Hundreds of wavering candles give it the look of an invisible cathedral.Read more ›
This DVD is great, with all the classic videos from the 80's and some I have never seen, the amusing "I Want To Break Free" video is priceless (I still can't believe it was Roger's idea and not Freddy's!). The best video has to be "Breakthru" with the band steaming through the countryside on the "Miracle Express". The Scandal video is quite interesting and a very underated track at that from "The Miracle" album!
All the videos and in excellent condition now and the sound quality alone is astonishing, it sounds good just in plain ol' stereo! The transfer has been done well.
One Vision is a gem and the band look like they enjoyed making the song and it's good to see they're not taking themselves too seriously in the video!
The documentaries are good too, giving much insight into the making of "The Works" and "A Kind Of Magic". The "One Vision" documentary is particularly good showing the making of the track.
Also the live material shows Queen proving that they can cut it live as well as in the studio, check out the live performance of "Staying Power"!
In my opinion, Queen really did make a "breakthru" in the 1980's making some of the best, catchiest and well known tracks of their career and these videos capture the essence of this perfectly! This DVD is fantastic value for money and including the second DVD you get a total of 21 Queen videos! WOW that'a bargain in it's self!
If you are a fan, you would do yourself a great dis-service not to get this, and if you're not, check it out, you may be converted!
I haven't purchased the first DVD but after this I will and now it's roll on Queen - Greatest Video Hits 3!
Trust me, i've collected a few duds in my time but that was way before I discovered Amazon and their great customer review system! (I don't work for Amazon, I just like their site).
This latest offering from QUEEN: 'Greatest Hits 2 dvd' is very special, honestly it just blew me away!! I sat with a smile on my face for the rest of the evening, without doubt this is my multi/channel Heaven!!
The DTS 96/24 mix is beautiful, absolutely crystal clear and stunning!!
I honestly felt that I was there with the band in the studio.
Yet again DTS has proven itself to be a far more superior sound format than that of 5.1 Dolby Digital! I genuinely cannot overstate enough how good this disc sounds.
The video transfer is also very good, taking into consideration just how long ago it was produced!
If you like Queen, buy this now! Its your duty! If your not really a big fan, but appreciate great music then I urge you to include this as part of your collection. You won't regret it!
It can also serve as a fantastic demo disc to show off your surround sound system!
Again I take my hat off to the engineers who worked on this fine mix, you have done an awsome job!! Thankyou!!
Hey.. I've only mentioned disc one here, disc two has so many extras, its just fantastic! Too many to mention!
To me, this is, without doubt the best sounding disc that I have ever purchased!
OH! just one last point!Read more ›
