Queen - The Platinum Collection - Amazing!!!
If you are a Queen fan then this is definitely for you. There are three CD's in the collection which cover all areas of their work.
The first CD is their LP Greatest Hits 1, which is all their earlier work - Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy Little Thing Called Love and We Are The Champions. The second CD is their LP Greatest Hits II, which is covering the later years - Under Pressure, Innuendo and I'm Going Slightly Mad. Finally the 3rd CD - Greatest Hits III has tracks with other singers, such as Elton John and of course Montserrat Caballe; singing with Queen. It also has tracks from individual Queen members - from work they have done on their own.
It really is a must have - even if you aren't a huge Queen fan, you will definitely have heard a lot of the songs before; and it is a great way to own the whole range of Queen from beginning to the very tragic death of Freddie Mercury.
If you are thinking of buying a Queen CD and can't decide which one to get, well I would recommend that you splash out and buy this collection - I really don't think you will regret it for one moment.

One of the greatest albums ever?
How do you go about making a Greatest Hits album when the majority of the songs are hits? This is the problem Queen faced while producing this disc. With fan-favorites such as "We Will Rock You" to classics such as "I Want To Break Free," there is something in store for everybody and this is not being said loosely. Queen covered a multitude of genres. From soft to rocking, you'll find something you will cherish and love for a long time. Every single track is a party favorite. The only questionable is why "Bohemian Rhapsody" isn't present.
The lyrics are fantastic as usual. Nothing too deep and nothing too shallow, just the right kind of tone. Some songs even contain humor (Fat Bottomed Girls). Some bands feature lyrics that don't go well with the song and sometimes, the whole lyrical flow is just lost. Not with Queen, everything blends together in a soothing manner. It's like each of these songs was meant to be. Freddie Mercury is a genius when it comes to tone. He has perfect harmony with every instrument on every single track.
You might say that this could be the best Christmas or Birthday present and you may be right. Whether a person has been listening to Queen since their first album or has never even heard of them, they will be sure to fall in love with them. Queen is the kind of band you have a hard time hating. Each song is different in every sense of the word and variety is the key to their success.

Queen set of 3 cds - well worth the buy
If you are a lover of Queen this is a definite buy. It has all the greatest hits I can remember from my youth (I am 40) such as Crazy Little Thing Called Love, We Will Rock You, Bicycle Race, Bohemian Rhapsody, Don't Stop Me Now, Killer Queen, You're My Best Friend, Somebody To Love and more! The third cd in the set of 3 is more like a tribute to Freddie than his greatest hits but is still worth a listen with songs like The Show Must Go On, Under Pressure and Living on my Own. The set of 3 cds is well worth a buy and will make you wish that Freddie was still alive if you are a Queen fan.
