This book contains the lyrics of all Queen songs. There is nothing special about that. Whoever got the albums, has the lyrics already. What's really special in this book after all, is that the book is packed with many amazing photos, art from the albums and hand written lyrics. All from the personal archive of the band. Most of the hand written lyrics were never seen before. The books is perfectly designed and looks very impressive.
The only disappointments I have: 1) The books contains no text besides the lyrics. I would have expected some behind the scenes stories, as how they got the ideas for the lyrics, meaning the lyrics had for the band members (if any), etc. The lyrics on their own are rather redundant, since you can find them in each of the albums. Needless to publish a book specially for it. 2) The book comes in paperback only.
I still rate it 5, because the book is really beautiful, and worth the purchase even without any meaningful text.
The book is an official Queen publication.

Recieved this book today and was totally amazed at the quality of the product. As well as printed and the bands hand written lyrics there is an abundance of superb photographs of the band. If you are a queen fan this should be on your shelf.
The book is marvellous and has a wide variety of information and behind the scenes stuff. But 4 stars because the title is a lie - it is NOT complete, missing both various rarities and b sides and the album track Mustapha!
The book is really beautiful and it's exactly what the title says, it has all the lyrics to Queen album songs with great pictures of the band, art of the albums and some pictures of handwritten lyrics by the members of the band. The quality of the paper is good and the size of the book is bigger than I thought. I'm really satisfied with the purchase, it's a jewel for Queen fans. If you are looking for a book with information about the band though, this is not what you want, because the only text besides the lyrics are little explanations about the pictures, nothing more.
As the title suggests the book contains the lyrics to all Queen songs & besides some one liners on each page for info there is no other text or insights to the lyrics. But if you are a Queen fan i can only recommend you buy this book as every page have pictures on & the whole presentaion is SUPERB. A fantastic purchase.
