4.0 out of 5 stars Still Great Even Without "Bohemian Rhapsody" April 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD
How do I review what isn't here? Strong Queen fans will know all 17 songs. Most of their biggest hits are here. Most. Not all. Not even one of the biggest songs they've ever had.

Even an American Idol contestant knows "Bohemian Rhapsody" is part of the rock-n-roll canon. What was Hollywood Records thinking to leave out such a great hit?

What is here is mostly good. Freddie Mercury's range and dramatic intonations, paired with guitar maestro Brian May's capacity to ignite a note, and songs like "Killer Queen" go from being interesting to incredible.

Part of the problem was Queen. They had too many good hits gracing more than one genre. Most bands wish they had the difficulty of choosing greatest hits choices.

Questionable choices are obvious: "Seven Seas of Rhye" and "Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy."

"Seven Seas" has a hard rock, guitar-driven sound but does not meet the usual Queen level of quality.

"Good Old" is a nice demonstration of Freddie Mercury's great voice, but lyrically is weak.

The closest economical solution is to buy instead "Queen - Greatest Hits, Vols. 1 & 2" Get all the songs below except "Keep Yourself Alive." 34 songs in all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Some of Queen's Greatest Hits June 9, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Queen released albums from 1973 to 1995. In that time Queen made a lot of music that was "great". Thus, as with most artists that have been around for more than 20 years, it is impossible to capture all of their hits or best music on a single CD. Recently this difficulty was recognized with a boxed set of three CDs that captured a much greater cross section of their music.
I consider this collection of Queen music their popular music. Much of it was mellow or radio friendly, and thus much of it hit the top 10. Given that Queen had a very eclectic repertoire, you'll find quirky songs such as "Fat Bottomed Girls" next to the mellow love song "Somebody to Love". Queen's progressive rock and harder rock songs are only barely represented on this particular collection, though strains of their harder edge show through in songs like "Bicycle Race" and "Another One Bites the Dust".
In many ways Queen was an album group. While most of their albums stop short of being true concept albums, most of their albums did have a theme. Also, their music was organized carefully to provide a presentation of the music that was greater than the sum of the individual songs. Thus, listening to a "greatest" collection does little to express the true scope of this group. I recommend this CD as one that provides a small sampling of Queen, and some of their more mellow music at that. You need to also have "Classic Queen" to additional hits such as "Bohemian Rhapsody". You may also want to consider "The Platinum Collection: Greatest Hits I, II and III", which is perhaps the most comprehensive set short of buying albums.
Though this CD is lacking in its breadth, I still give it 5 stars because Queen was such a great group, and the songs here do represent a small portion of their incredible talent.

I'm starting to get angry at all these compilation CDs that are hitting the shelves. It's not just Queen it's all these bands that have been around for 20 + years. There are "Greatest Hits", "The Best of", "Classics", "Ultimate Collections" etc. ... but if you inspect them you always find 1 or 2 great songs on a different compilation and have to decide, "which songs can I live without?".
I thought I did this when I decided to go with Queen's Greatest Hits. During my inspection I concentrated on some of the minor songs, only to find out later that `Bohemian Rhapsody' was NOT on it. (Yeah my bad but COME ON!) So I thought "Do I return it and get the Platinum Collection?" Well there is a bunch of stuff (on the 3rd CD) that I'd never listen too and it's missing songs off of "Classic Queen" like `Tie Your Mother Down' and some others. So I went out and bought "Queen Classics" along with an empty CD case that holds two CDS. So now I can combine "Queen's Greatest Hits" and "Classic Queen" into my very own custom made "Very Best Greatest Hits Ultimate Collection of Queen".

5.0 out of 5 stars They Have Rocked Us! July 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is essential to all Queen fans. With the exception of the tracks off The Game, the singles Body Language, and I Want to Break Free, this represents the hard rocking Queen complete with the opera-style vocals. It features not only the hits like "We Will Rock You", "We Are the Champions", "Somebody to Love" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love", but more obscure songs like "Don't Stop Me Now", "Now I'm Here", "Save Me" (although a hit in the UK), and "The 7 Seas of Rhye". If you were a fan of early Queen, you must own this. Then grab Classic Queen to appreciate their later efforts!
