3.0 out of 5 stars Great! (Unless You Already Have Earlier Versions) September 5, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
So, is it time time to trade up, time to get rid of your earlier versions of Greatest Video Hits I & II?

No.

If you don't have your Queen videos then go ahead, have fun discovering what MTV used to be all about before it went "all reality, all the time." For those of you who already have this stuff, you're safe in passing this one by. I mean, sure, if having the "audio remixed for DTS 5.1 Surround Sound" makes you all moist and tingly then, yes, buy these landmark films all over again. But, what about the visuals?

Visually, there's nothing new here at all. "All videos are restored and shown in 16:9 widescreen." Too bad they weren't FILMED that way. The originals were created when televisions were, roughly speaking, square. 4:3 format. Nowadays, widescreen is the standard, so the "restoration team" had four choices:

One: maintain the entire image as it was created, by plunking the original image down "as is," a square in the middle of a rectangle, meaning there's going to be black areas on either side of your widescreen monitor or screen.

Two: stretch the image to fill the screen; this has the unfortunate effect of squishing everything and making things - like musicians and singers - look as if they were filmed on a planet with ten times the gravity of Earth.

Three: chop off the tops and bottoms of the image in a way that destroys its carefully planned look. It's butchery but it WOULD make the square image fit a wide screen.

Four: give viewers the choice to see these films as Queen created them or as stretched/squished/butchered monstrosities.

As in previous releases of Queen's video legacy, the choice was a combination of Option One, Option Two AND Option Three.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant... nothing less than brilliant March 6, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My favorite band has long been STYX, as my favorite musician of any and all genre's has always been Tommy Shaw. Other favorite bands have included the Bill Bruford/ Rick Wakeman incarnations of YES, the Terry Kath era CHICAGO and others. Never, would I have included the band QUEEN among them, although I liked several of their songs.

My perception of what constituted this band, in hindsight, was horribly mistaken. Never had I realized that among such pomposity as BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY, ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST and FAT BOTTOM GIRLS, that the band had incredible depth and intellect that far exceeded "MY BEST FRIEND"... until now.

Listening first to many of the lesser known songs (albeit hits in their own rights), the depth of introspection and spirituality just astonished me. Listening then to the commentaries from Brian May and Roger Taylor opened my eyes to the idealogoes, the myths and the truths about some of their music which garnered my respect.

From their, opening my ears to the later albums, I was truly blown away by the sincerity and intelligence of Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon. It almost seems to me that once they decided to share writing credits, that they finally gelled as a single unit (instead of a band of 4 contrasting musicians) and wrote their best music... indisputably their most heart-felt music.

I can now understand the hullabaloo about QUEEN in the late 70's and 1980's and argue along with most QUEEN fans to beleive that QUEEN was the best rock and roll band of that era. JOURNEY, REO SPEEDWAGON, BAD COMPANY and all others just could not hold a candle to QUEEN. STYX in their best years made for great competition, but STYX' best years were few before the band divided into a group of "contrasting musicians.

Queen was the best group in rock under the showmanship of Freddie Mercury. This video compilation brings Queen to life in all their talented and wonderful glory. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

1.0 out of 5 stars The publisher of this release must hate Queen. July 10, 2014
Format:DVD
Artistically, this collection is excellent. Don't get me wrong, the classic videos themselves especially the older ones, are really tacky and shot with poor quality video, but for those of us who grew up listening to Queen's Greatest Hits, this is just beautiful. It's a piece of nostalgia accompanied by the best music ever. However, when it comes to the technical side, it's absolutely horrible, especially disc 1, which contains the classics from the 70's.

Granted, these were shot in video rather than film, and video in the 70's had very poor quality, added to the fact that the master tapes are probably in bad shape. However, many of the videos have an excessive amount of color noise, and THAT can be fixed. I transferred the DVD to my hard drive, loaded it in Premiere and applied the NeatVideo plugin to certain songs where the color noise was more evident. It was quite an improvement, and it makes me wonder why Eagle Vision didn't do that themselves. They did, however, a pretty good job with the audio, both the PCM and DTS tracks sound very good.

The other thing is the colossal mess that the aspect ratio is set to. I'm not sure about the disc 2 videos because they're newer, but the disc one videos were shot on video, at least most of them. This means that they were shot at 4:3 aspect ratio, and there wasn't anything left on the sides to add and produce a decent 16:9 AR. Yet Eagle Vision decided to cut off a big section at the top and bottom just so it would take up the whole screen, although they might have butchered them in some other way because some of the videos look slightly enlarged horizontally.

Then we get to disc 2, which is a different disaster. While the color noise is not so present, there are huge aspect ratio screw-ups.

I love this: it's got all the best songs and is a flashback to the MTV of the early 80's. It also gave me a different perspective from the live performances.
