Absolute Greatest.....what?  Exaggeration and potentially misleading title  I'd have called it "All that your given is what you've been given a 1000 times before"

Pic absolute youngest......I think they should have just used the crest.

I like the picture ... yes, a much better cover than QRM. I would have included something to fill the blank grey space at the left ... yeah, maybe the crest in a big size or something ... anyway, I like it :)

The big grey space on the left is obviously for a sticker. I'd have used a pic from later in their career personally... or maybe they could of had 2 or 3 covers, for early, middle, and later years.

I quite like the cover, but it looks to me (viewing the largest size they have on the QOL site so far) that the picture may be reversed (back to front).  Does it look like that to anyone else??

Lord, once again, they have chosen an ugly album cover, but yes, at least it is the best one of the last 10 years, except for the Live on Fire one.  Too much negative space on the left.


I'm just getting used to my new exposure

I don't think it's too bad.  They could've put the crest in the blank space, though.  At least, it's better than another arched over pic of Freddie. [img=/images/smiley/msn/wink_smile.gif][/img]

With crest...

It looks like one of those cheap compilation cd's you can buy at groceries, pharmacies and huge supermarketchains which include material by famous artists who had a licensing problem at some point in their career (Genesis, Sparks, The Beach Boys etc) so that almost anyone can put out a CD with tracks by them.

Well I'm afraid the cover will be more interesting than the musical content of the CD :-)
