From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

4 stars Each of this songs are actually GREAT HITS that Queen had during their first years. I find not that surprising that This album has been announced to be the greatest selling album in the UK of all times.. why? because each of this songs are hyper famous.

Now, talking in a more "objective" point of view and considering we're in a prog rock web page, this album is not that good: it has many radio friendly, simplistic songs that even though I love as I'm sure a lot of you guys who are reading this also do, they are not super-innovative or mind blowing music.

This album is definitely an excellent addition to any Prog fan's colletcion, why? Because even though this album does not contain the most "proggressive" Queen songs, this album englobes many sides of this band, the "poppish" cheesy melodies on some songs, and some excellent tracks that demonstrate that this guys really revolutionized the concept of music with mind blowing tracks like the bohemian rhapsody. In other words, this album contains the many sides of Queen as a band and that's what makes it valuable.

Since I love this band so much, and for the value that this album may add to any prog rock collection (for the reasons exposed above) I'm giving this album 4 stars.
