This collection of the final five Queen albums may not have as many of the "hits" as the first two sets, however, these are some of the finest albums that they produced. Listening to "The Miracle" and "Innuendo" knowing that Freddie was near the end makes his vocal performances even more impressive. Bob Ludwig's remastering really shines, especially on these digitally-recorded albums, which previously sounded somewhat flat. Don't believe the "audiofools" on some forums that complain about these being "too compressed". These albums have never sounded more alive. The extras on the EP's are OK, but still seems like a missed opportunity. And "Made In Heaven" sounds like what it is, a cut and paste job of what was left behind. Still, that aside, these albums are essential and should be in anyone's collection who appreciates great music.

Bought this package as a Chrstmas present for myself. Couldn't resist, especially with the "Lightning Deal" discount.

The package contains Queen's final 5 albums: "The Works", "A Kind of Magic", "The Miracle", "Innuendo", and "Made in Heaven"

While most of these albums weren't very popular in the US when originally released, these albums contain some of Queen's best work. While I love the "heavier" sound of early-mid 1970's Queen, these 5 albums feature a more polished, more mature Queen.

While each of these albums are worth owning on their own merit, what really makes this collection are the bonus EP's.

"The Works" EP:
* "I Go Crazy" - A non-album "B" side, written by Brian May. Great song and a Queen fan fave.
* "I Want To Break Free" - Single remix, over a minute longer than the original album version. GREAT SONG.
* "Hammer to Fall" - UK single remix, which demonstrated Queen could still rock as hard as any heavy metal band.
* "Is This the World We Created" and "It's a Hard Life" - Both recordings here are from Live in Rio, 1985. IMHO, Queen was always a band better appreciated live than on vinyl, as they always gave new interpretations of their songs.
* "Thank God It's Christmas" - Queen's Christmas single, although never featured in any Queen concert, is one of the best originally penned Christmas song from any rock group.

"A Kind of Magic" EP:
* "A Kind of Magic" - This version of Roger Taylor's classic was the version heard on the Highlander movie. Different than the album version. IMHO, a better version!
* "One Vision" - Original single version, perhaps the one many casual Queen fans are more familiar with, as this version accompanied the video.

Well, I agree with most of the reviewers on here who say these are by far the best sounding Queen cd's released to date. Crisp, clear, full, quiet, beautiful best describes the way they sound. Yes they are louder than the 1992 releases, but no stupidly louder and their is an openness about them, i.e. they don't sound like Metallica's last release!

What you wont find here are louded up compressed to hell vintage tunes with no feel or soul to them. The quiet parts are quiet, the loud parts are loud etc. They sound the way the were originally meant to only better.

The second cd is cool, but nothing special. It is however a massive step forward from the 1992 releases. What was with some of those remixes? Were they trying to turn Queen into a dance band? I never understood stood some of those remixes back then and still don't to this day!

Inside the jewel cases you will find the same stuff you found on the albums with a few more pics thrown in here and there for good measure. Overall, all good stuff and well worth the price in my opinion.

As far as tunes go, I like Box set A and C better than box set B. However that's just my take and yours may vary. Box A is killer from start to finish. Box set B has two of my least favorite Queen albums. Both The Game and Flash didn't do much for me back than and still don't today. However I enjoyed Hot Space when much of the population was wondering "what the hell" lol. The first 4 or 5 songs on the game are fantastic, after that it alright. Flash is well Flash, nuff said! Box C also has some great material on it. The only two that again didn't do anything for me were The Works and Made In Heaven. The works has some quality tunes on it, but overall it's lacking in my opinion. Made In Heaven which was put together after Mr.

While this batch finishes off the remasterring of queen's studio album catalog (there are 15 cds in all) it represents the more underrated period of Queen's career. I personally love these albums, but when I would talk to fellow queen fans, they tend to have stopped listening to Queen by this point, aside from A Kind of Magic which had music featured in the film Highlander (I even own the Queen version of that movie as it had a seperate dvd with the queen songs and music videos) But, the Works, A Kind of Magic, the Miracle, Innuendo and Made in Heaven showcases some of the finest music they have ever done. There is "The Invisible Man" a great work of art, showcasing their penchant for artful lyrics, and studio wizadry. You have your anthems like "I want to break free" and "I want it all" you have the heavy hearted, "Too much love will kill you" and the sweeter "I was born to love you" Everything is extremely likable. Innuendo was probably their first album that I had bought without any prior knowledge of it, I didn't even get to hear any singles or samples, but I have loved it ever since. Some criticse Queen as a singles band, but Queen has great album tracks, too many too mention actually. Their singles were defintely strong. But, that doesn't mean that's all there was to them. Queen created masterpieces. Sure they have some of the most popular singles of any band going, sure they have the classics like "We will rock you" and "We are the champions" but if anyone believes queen to be just a singles band and the rest is filler only need to listen to "The Prophet's Song" on " A Night at the Opera". I love the new remasters not just for improved sound but for the extras, the b-sides, the alternate takes etc. These are well crafted and well put together.Read more ›

Amazon is not selling Queen's box set vol. 3?
A few other sites (, list the set as being available June 5, 2012. Maybe it's that Amazon had it as an exclusive before anyone else, and they've run out of that stock and are now waiting to get it June 5 with everyone else... Hope so- I want it too.
