Review:
I bought this CD new from a gohastings.com sale a few months ago and finally had a chance to spin the CD. I have always been a fan of queen. They really had a unique sound and exemplified 70's and 80's british rock.

Music:
As a "greatest hits" cd, there is a nice collection of Queen's music here. There are numerous greatest hits CD's for queen that have been released through the years, Wikipedia article on Queen's Greatest hits releases. There are some tracks that I would have liked to see such as One Vision, Flash, Bohemian Rhapsody, Who Wants to Live Forever, etc... but there is only so much room on the CD. My favorite track on this particular disc was the last one on the disk, "I Want To Break Free." How good was it? Well,... when the significant other comes into to the room to dance around, you know your listening to a good song. :)

Audio Quality:
This was a disc released in 1992. Overall it was a very good sounding disc. I think CD's released around this time sound pretty good as they had mastered digital recording but it was right before they started loudness wars. Great dynamics and the soundstage is nothing short of amazing. Lots of right and left channel effects.

Conclusion:
I would give this a high recommendation and if your a queen fan it's a must own (unless you already own all the material already).
