Product Description

Amazon.com

Though at first glance a third Queen hits collection might seem to stretch the bounds of credibility, upon reflection this collection may well be the most revealing and compelling of the lot. Gathered from disparate late-career band and solo projects as well as Freddie Mercury tributes with guest vocalists filling the shoes of the band's late singer (Elton John dramatically on "The Show Must Go On," George Michael playfully over-the-top on "Somebody to Love"), it's a collection that coalesces into a thematically and musically satisfying whole. Though oft criticized for their unapologetic excesses, Queen's brash infusion of rock and blues with operatic drama and scale (deliciously exemplified here by "Barcelona," Mercury's duet with diva Montserrat Caballe) was unique. III isn't so much a collection of hits as a well-paced, lovingly compiled homage to Freddie Mercury and his distinctly arch artistic vision. --Jerry McCulley

"Another One Bites The Dust" is remixed with added vocals from Wyclef Jean.

Once again, Hollywood records demonstrates their GREAT common sense by releasing yet another Queen compilation that at first glance, appears to be totally unneccesary. First, this isn't even a 'hits' collection, the only true hit here is Queen+ George Michael's 'Somebody to Love', so the name 'Greatest Hits' is misleading, even with the 'Queen+' moniker tacked on.
However, this collection definitley grows on the Queen fan. It's an odds and ends collection of Queen with guests (Elton John with a great, and very recent performance of 'The Show Must Go On', and a rather unneccesary rap mix of Another One Bites the Dust), a remix here and there (the 'Rah Mix' of Under Pressure is simply outstanding, blows the original away), long-forgotten album track-treasures(Las Palabras del Amor, Princes of the Universe) and the best of the solo projects Freddie and Brian had done (but no Roger.. why?), a couple of the best cuts from Made in Heaven, plus the new song that was sorely misplaced on Queen Rocks(No one but You).
This collection is great for people who are interested in getting some of Queen's loose ends. Brian May's solo work was great at best but quite uneven, and Freddie's original (and excellent) Mr. Bad Guy LP is long gone, replaced by a bastardized 'the Great Pretender', thank you again, Hollywood Records. It's also worth picking up because 'Princes of the Universe' and 'Las Palabras del Amor' aren't available elsewhere save on the original albums (and save yourself the pain of buying Hot Space).
This collection will definitley grow on you, but it's definitley not 'Greatest Hits', so if you're expecting a continuation of the other compilations, you're going to be sorely disappointed.

Even though all of us Queen fans would be more interested in having some new stuff from some Freddie's unreleased tunes, or new recordings from the other three guys, it's always great to have some Queen material on the charts again. GH3 presents a collection of Freddie's ecclectic singing style (The Great Pretender, Living On My Own, Barcelona and Princes of Universe) that is reasonable to include in this CD to introduce him to new fans. For the old fans like me, The Show Must Go On version with Elton is very poignant and strong. Under Pressure (Queen+Bowie) surely is much better than the original recording (thanks Brian and Roger), and I have to mention that Somebody To Love with George Michael sounds really great. This CD has also a handful of songs from "Made in Heaven", that I consider one of the best Queen's work.

Does this collection of songs deserve to be sold under the title of "Greatest Hits"? I'm still not sure about that, but I do know that there are several incredible songs on this album, which make it a must-buy.
There are two live tracks with guest vocalists filling in for Freddie Mercury - George Michael on "Somebody To Love" (recorded at the tribute concert in 1992) and Elton John on "The Show Must Go On". Both are done well, although I prefer the originals.
Next come remixes. "Another One Bites The Dust" is remixed with added vocals from Wyclef Jean. The one song I skip over every time I play this CD, and one which was sensibly left off the video counterpart to the album. On the other hand, the remix of "Under Pressure" is surprisingly good and - dare I say - perhaps better than the original.
The difference between this and other Queen albums is that solo work is included. You have Freddie Mercury's Olympic anthem "Barcelona" (with Montserrat Caballe), the 1993 remix of his fabulous "Living On My Own" and of course his cover of the song he related to so well, "The Great Pretender". Brian May's "Driven By You" is also featured on the album, a song that made me want to go out and buy all of his solo work. Great song.
There's only one non-Freddie Queen song - "No One But You (Only The Good Die Young)" is an absolutely stunning, heartbreaking piece about those who have died too soon - inspired by the premature deaths of Princess Diana and of course Freddie himself.
Finally, the 'real' stuff, the fresh, never-before-on-a-greatest-hits-CD Queen tracks. There are eight of these, comprising almost half the album. "Heaven For Everyone" and "Princes of the Universe" are spectacular, the type of song you keep on replaying over and over again.

The title is a misnomer. This is not a Greatest Hits album but rather is a musical scrap bin. I'm not complaining, since Queen didn't need a third GR album anyway. Face it, most of these cuts never saw the light of day on US radio stations. GR albums are for people who like a band but don't really love the band. They act as a conduit to those who may come to find that they really do have a taste for the group, and wind up wanting more. This is not such an album. What non-Queen lover would look at the track listing, and say 'Hey, I know these songs! I should buy this.'? The album was made to bleed more dollars out of true Queen fans hungry for good material.
What I'd like to see, as would apparently most other Queen fans from what I read, is a collection of Queen rarities and NOT remixes and re-releases of songs we already have.
I've been a serious fan of Queen since the summer of 1980 and am quite familiar with their music- both as a group and solo. I have all the original releases: Star Fleet, Mr. Bad Guy, Barcelona (basically ALL that there is to have).
What I'd like to see if for the repackaging to end, and for the record company to start listening to the requests of serious fans. Wouldn't you like to see a multi-CD set of original-form, hard-to-find songs, particularly the 'lost' B-sides. How about a digital release of Taylor's solo single from 1977! That's about the one Queen-related cut I've never heard! How about the cut-to-the-chase 7-inch single version of Star Fleet (radio edit)? What do you think, Mr or Ms Queen lover?
Hey Hollywood Records! Listen to serious Queen fans for a change. We're tired of buying rehashed releases!
