4 stars I didn't know where to put this album, so I put in the compilation- section.

This album is the o.s.t. of the forthcoming movie about Queen and Freddie Mercury, focussing on the life of Freddy upto their legendary famous concert at Live Aid (widely regarded as the best live performance ever by any rockband/artist). The release of this album also coincides with Freddy's 72nd birthday!

The songlist looks like a greatest hits collection but is so much more than that.

The 20th century fox theme is a newly recorded song and Keep Yourself Alive is newly recorded by a reformed Smile. Also Don't Stop Me Now features newly recorded guitarparts.

We Will Rock You is a nicely remixed mix of the studio and liveversion.

On top of that: the livesongs of Live Aid were never before made available on an official release before. A real treat. The other livesongs are previously released on various live-albums.

I'm really looking forward to seeing this film an although some songs on this album are played to death and available on a million- and-one albums, the revisited and live-songs make this album so much more than just another Queen-compilation.

Highly recommended to any Queen-fan and rockfan in general.
