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.

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...

Excellent of course. I bought to replace a disc that was missing from my set of three. Great for all occasions, housework and driving allow me to sing my heart out with Freddie
