Don't bother with it unless you want a 'Queen annual' like the Beano etc!

Has a few handwritten lyrics but that's about it.  Not up to the usal Queen book standard.

Just buy the CD instead

I disagree ... but it´s a matter of taste, of course.

Got it yesterday and thought it was a nice piece from QPL, at last.  Some really nice pics in there, too. A bonus disc with 3 or 4 live rarities from the streaming videos at QOL would make it perfect. I prefer having this book instead of the standard single CD or double CD a trillion times.

If it was released without the book - like if all you could get was just the cd on its own, which i know you can, i wouldn't bother, as i have them all loads of times anyway.

But the book...the book makes it so worth getting.

I for one love it, I think the book looks fantastic. What a great looking format, the A4 size is a great idea, much better that a 5" booklet in the regular CD.
Queen should be BIG in every way. The use of the 'new' old photos from 1974 really span the years from the beginning til the end and compliment them all together.
