5 star album gets 2 star treatment
on 13 April 2011
Let me preface my review by saying that Sheer Heart Attack is a fantastic album.
My problem is with the "Remaster". Its lovely but.....Maybe its my ageing ears but to me their is no noticeable improvement on the 1991 Remasters.
Also the bonus tracks, while pristine are flawed in their selection. The first 3 bonus tracks are welcome because they are of the time period covered by the album. The latter recordings are a 2011 remix and a 1986 live recording which is available among queen already available catalogue.
Its a shame the band are milking fans with their new label with the new releases with little care or content control. A full Live Concert recording from either Hammersmith Odeon or The Rainbow or indeed a full BBC sessions double CD release would be far more welcome.
