Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this collection from the pomp Rock legends, previously unreleased in the U.S. From the effortless pop of 'I Want To Break Free' to the symphonic grandeur of the epic 'Innuendo', this release captures the band at their most far- reaching, creatively. Among the other hits included are 'Radio Ga Ga', 'A Kind Of Magic' and the David Bowie collaboration 'Under Pressure'. Throughout, the flamboyance and verve of the band's performances shines, highlighting exactly why they remain one of the most popular acts in the world.

Format:Audio CD
Queen's second greatest hits album entitled Greatest Hits II was originally released in October, 1991 in most of the world except for the US and Canada as Queen were on a different record label for the US and Canada as opposed to the rest of the world where the band was (until 2010) with EMI.
By the time of Queen's second compilation, the band (which comprised of lead singer Freddie Mercury, guitarist Brian May, bass player John Deacon and drummer Roger Taylor) were huge through most of the world but sadly had lost their popularity in the US and in Canada due to a few ill-advised detours and videos that drove the fans from the US' "Dust Bowl" and "Bible Belt" away. I think it's a real shame because the band released three great albums (1984's The Works, 1989's The Miracle and 1991's superb Innuendo) in that period and two good albums (1982's Hot Space and 1986's A Kind of Magic). Greatest Hits II would be issued in the US and Canada with a modified tracklist as Classic Queen as I'll explain later.
Greatest Hits II contains two US Pop Top 40 hits which were "Under Pressure" (which hit #29 Pop and Top 10 Mainstream Rock in the US in late 1981) and "Radio Ga Ga" (which hit #16 Pop in the US in 1984) plus "The Show Must Go On" (which eventually peaked at #2 when released in the US in 1992 as double A-side with "Bohemian Rhapsody"'s re-release).

4.0 out of 5 stars Queen To The End December 28, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
It is hard to believe that it has been 20 years ago that Freddie Mercury lost his life because of AIDS. Nevertheless, his legacy, and the legacy of Queen is still as empowering and invigornant today, as it was when Queen burst onto the music scene in the 70's. They still light a incredible fire musically with their classic stadium anthems like We Are The Champions that still showcase a empowering message that stands taller than acts of today have shown in music and message alone. While Queen will never be able to duplicate what they have done with their music, it still stands deeply tall as you can imagine. But for those whom are just became Queen fans, this is one hits collections that is worth its effort.

Queen Greatest Hits II, is a reflection of Queen's big hits passed their 70's prime, to 80's grooves. While their popularity did dim a spell, Freddie, John, Roger, and Brian still showcased a infectious cavalcade of great songs that kept them still relevant in the 80's and early 90's. The collection of songs have been remastered brilliantly, and still are a joy to listen to for anyone whom really wants to rock. There are many great songs and anthems here including the infectious Radio Ga Ga, to the empowering and overshadowed Innuendo, to The Show Must Go On, all the way to I Want It All, and lesser-known hidden gems like The Invisible Man and Who Wants To Live Forever. It is definitely a deep reminder of how potent Queen has made for those who want to rock, stand deeply tall.

All in all, Queen Greatest Hits II definitely handles well as a great buy for new Queen fans, as well as anyone whom has been a Queen fan, but never owned one of their albums before.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation!!! September 1, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a fabulous CD!!!!! I love it so much!!!! Unfortunately, I missed out on all the Queen greatness during their heyday (not exactly my musical taste back in the day), but I am absolutely enraptured by them now. My favorite track is "Hammer to Fall", but all of the songs are masterpieces created by musical geniuses. From the steady, driving vocals provided primarily by the late GREAT Freddie Mercury, to the guitar riffs of Brian May, the driving beat of Roger Taylor's drums, and the perfectly executed bass line by John Deacon, this CD is an absolutely phenomenal representation of Queen's best works!!! If you are a longtime fan of the group, or a new fan like myself, you will be exceedingly pleased by this compilation!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Awesome, but..... August 3, 2013
By cjh
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
At least 3 of the tracks were edited on this."One Vision" and "I'm Going Slightly Mad", and "Under Pressure",which was a disappointment. Other than that, phenomenal. Heard "Innuendo" for the first time, and to think Freddie was dying during the making of that album, literally, is absolutely amazing. He sounds as great as he did in the 70's. I have 5 Queen compilations, a few of their albums. I'm a huge fan, and this was nice because it was all remastered, and sounded perfect. I just wish some of the songs weren't edited. Other than that, two thumbs way up.
