From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

3 stars Fabulous compilation album, it came in different guises over the years, some releases had a slightly different trak list (I know of one release where Under Pressure was added as 18th song, and there even is a version (Hollywood records I believe) that left out Bohemian Rhapsody in favour of the totally unsuited I Want Too Break Free, which has nothing to do with the covered time period.) But the track list as presented here is the one that I consider to be original (which of course it is).

The title of the album is Greatest Hits, and don't expect anything else, no album tracks involved, only top 10 chart successes are incorporated. Unfortunatly that leaves out the for us most interesting aspects and period of Queen's music. The songs however are great, and provides for a pleasant listening.

On a compilation scale I would rate it 5/5 for it really is one of the best 'Greatest Hits' albums of all time. This however is a progressive rock site, and progressive is not the first word that springs to mind when listening to this album (3-4 prog songs and some progressive elements is not enough).

I refrase. A Brilliant pop/rock gem, but for us the original albums are far more interesting, 5 stars on a song based analysis, 2 on the progressive scale, thus averages between 3 and four. I'll leave it at three stars.

tuxon | 3/5 |
