I bought the Album on first Day of Release and I would like to get an idea of the popularity of the album, and also say If the album is really good or does it miss out on some tracks. (Forget about the article of the album #18 in Australia, I found that out of Wiki Queen Discography though I read on an article that AG reached #9 in Ireland).

I pre-ordered 2 of the regular cd's from  Best Buy and I've just checked the shipment status and I should be receiving them tomorrow. I thought for sure they would be back ordered for several weeks. Needless to say, I'm happy they're shipping as soon as they were released.


and on, and on........till the end of time.

Not me.  No point in buying the plain cd from Best Buy.  Should be getting a copy of the book version from the UK soon..

I still haven't opened mine.  I got the Space Oddity CD stuck in my player right now and I don't feel like taking it out.

Sorry to hear about your loss, Erin.  Save your receipt.

With the amount of people whose actually got unreleased material on this site,would you blame them for not releasing a box set.

Whats the point of buying it if you already have it.

Didn't know so many people like buying the same songs over and over. I went to Best Buy the other day picked up this album, held it turned it over looked at the track list and sat it right back down. I have all 3 Greatest Hits compilations and certainly don't need this, especially a compilation that would not have Fat Bottomed Girls or Innuendo on it....Even though they are my favorite band of all time, I can't help but feel annoyed at this continual remarketing and rehashing of their Hits. I don't know if its Brian and Roger or the record company but the reading on the "Greed Scale" is beginning to steadily rising...I guess they'll release another "Magic Tour" or 80's concert DVD next!

I was like you Lyricalassasin.  Picked it up, turned it over, thought it looked lame and put it back.

I also thought it was lame that they're putting big red stickers on to cover the blank space on the the front of the sleeve.

I'll admit I'm surprised it's at no. 3 in the UK.
