"Let Me In Your Heart Again" is another 'new' track in the album, and although it is the first time I heard the music, Brian May's guitar sound, the vocal harmony and Freddie's voice really make it an instant Queen classic!
The third 'new' track is 'Love Kills - the ballad' which is actually a lot better version than its original 1984 counterpart. The accoustic touch on the ballad version really makes it a killer ballad!
Other songs in this album are taken from various albums, some of which have been a bit redundantly included in several other previous compilation albums but nevertheless it's still, it's an enjoyable compilation.
Other than the first three "new" songs, literally everything on here as been released before, absolutely nothing new to speak of which is a shame as Queen could have made this so much more interesting. The press release promising "new takes on old classics" was an outright lie, a few tracks had been edited here and there but that hardly qualifies.
Thing is, Queen COULD have done just that, used alternate takes of these tracks to make this more exciting (ex: Who Wants to Live Forever from Highlander using Freddie's lead vocals through the whole song.) The deluxe version of "Forever" just adds more of the same and no Queen fan needs to buy the 2 CD set.
I still give the whole thing 4 stars simply because of the quality of the songs and no other reason.
As for the three new songs; "Let Me In Your Heart Again" is almost brilliant. An incredible performance all around and deserves to be a number 1 single. "Love Kills" is a drastically re-worked version of a Freddie solo song and it sounds surprisingly good as a ballad (as opposed to the 80s synth pop it originally was.) "There Must Be More to Life than This" was easily the weakest of the bunch. A maddeningly poor mix done by William Orbit didn't help matters any. Michael Jackson is essentially a cameo anyway, hardly making this the duet Freddie and MJ originally intended.
