5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely worthwhile June 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This collection is necessary to anybody who likes rock. Queen are the greatest band ever (in my opinion).
Queen are famous for 'We will rock you' and 'we are the champions', but those aren't the best songs on the album. 'Another one bites the dust' and 'Crazy little thing called love' are all-time classics, and they were Queen's first two #1 hits in the US.
'Killer Queen' and 'Somebody to Love' are both brilliant songs. Other notable songs are 'Bicycle Race', 'Now I'm here', 'seven seas of rhye', and 'Don't stop me now.'
There are, however, two minor errors.
1) Bohemian Rhapsody, the best song in the history of the world, is missing. But it's on 'Classic Queen', so now worries.
2) 'I want to break free', although a fantastic song, was released in 1984, when everyhting else was before 1982. Classic Queen is supposed to pick up where this album left off.
Classic Queen MUST be bought with this to do justice. It covers Queen's later works.

3.0 out of 5 stars Title should be "Dude, That's Messed Up"... June 4 2004
By R. Holt
Format:Audio CD
since it deliberately does not include Bohemian Rhapsody and a few other hits, leaving them for the Classic Queen CD. I will readily admit I'm not a big fan of Queen's stuff after Under Pressure (another hit not included on this). I prefer their earlier work. But a solid half of this CD (and the "Classic Queen" CD) is that later-80's-'yeah, this is Queen but I'll always skip these tracks since they're not that good'-stuff.
Presumably, the record company thought they needed to save a few hits for the Classic Queen release, or no one would buy it. That CD (which I got as well) also suffers from too much unknown later crap; if they'd loaded Classic Queen with earlier quality album tracks, I would have been quite happy.
But they didn't, so I'll probably wind up getting Day At The Races and Night At The Opera as well, if not Sheer Heart Attack. To me, THAT stuff is Queen at their best. This, while worthwhile for the hits, is, ummm... messed up.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT Compilation! July 19 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of those rare high quality "greatest hits" compilations that deal a hearty selection of great Queen Songs during their finest hours. If you want only one Queen CD with a solid grouping of Queen's work, this package is the way to go. You not only get their signature songs, but also a great sampling of their best songs that got little radio play like "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy," "Seven Seas of Rhye," and "Now I'm Here."
All of Queen's albums from their debut up until the 1978 release of "Jazz" are, in my opinion, such excellent pieces of work that any could qualify as a "Greatest Hits" collection. In fact, the only reason I would want to steer you away from this CD is because while everything here is very good, there is so much premium Queen music packed into each of their individual albums of that era. "Sheer Heart Attack" is a masterpiece, and "News of the World" is such a strong album that it is almost one big song unto itself.
My only disappointment with this CD is the lack of material from their first two albums. Songs like "Keep Yourself Alive," "King Rat" and "Ogre Battle" would have been great on this collection. Still, this is a minor complaint, since this CD is a much tighter and solid collection than the other two prominent Queen compilations: "Classic Queen" does have "Keep Yourself Alive" but is a hit-&-miss album overall, and the 2 disc "Greatest Hits" is good, but does not let the band's greatness shine like this CD does.
If you are just getting familiar with Queen's work and want to sample a CD to get a feel which tunes grab you, this is a really good place to start.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Live Freddie Mercury Jan. 31 2004
Format:Audio CD
"Greatest Hits" is a compilation of some of Queen's hit singles from 1974-1984. This album was released shortly after Freddie Mercury's unfortunate death. Such combination of tracks wonderfully commemorates his life and the band. The quality on every track proves that Mercury is one of the greatest rock lead singers in music history. His grand octave range and his strong, big voice stands out during their historic run. Every lyric was written and performed with tremendous heart and soul, forcing listeners to feel his words. His piano talents are also wonderful. Queen's combination of hard rock, artistic rock, pop, and opera remains ahead of their time. Behind their flamboyance is a group of highly talented musicians and songwriters. Regardless which genre or genres are capitalized in each individual song, they remain on top of their game. Brian May's lead guitar playing remains unique today, especially his guitar picking. John Deacon's bass and Roger Taylor's drumming are also wonderful, both stated heaviest on "Another One Bites the Dust".
"Greatest Hits" also showcases how they evolved as musicians within those ten years. Whichever genre they introduced themselves to along the way remains stood out in music history. Almost every track has since become more than classic; they've rightfully become anthems. They remain frequently played on many radio stations. Every musical path they've traveled have influenced many musicians who came after them. This can be heard in such acts as Def Leppard, George Michael, and many others. Many have tried copying their style, but none have succeeded. This album is great for all Queen fans. Those wanting to hear more of their historic musical journey should also purchase "Classic Queen", which features more of their hit singles. Such combination makes a beautiful musical experience.
