I am a young Queen fan, 18 years of age, I really wanted to own the
physical copies of their albums, prefered to wait for these
remasters...I do not wish to buy them on iTunes and wondered if im
really missing out if I were to do so? Do you reckon the songs
themselves are worth it? Could we buy them seperately?

-I apologise in advance if this is not nessessarily in the right place-

Seriously, this is crap. All this wonderful stuff being shown at SiS, and virtually none of the REALLY interesting shit ending up here?

On the other hand, at least we're not bitching about the REALLY interesting material being sold digital-only in heavily compressed DRM'd-to-hell crap format :-9

=============================================================================================

The iTunes route is definitely a waste of time and HDD space!  How the hell can they justify compressing what is supposed to be the cleanest, most enhanced versions of the albums available into MP3 format?  It makes no sense at all.  And the "bonus" content is all readily available elsewhere....there's nothing special about any of it.


It ain't about how hard you can hit, it's about how hard you can get hit: how much you can take and keep moving forward. That's how winning is done!

Just get the Parlophone editions - i expect you can get them cheap 2nd hand for now. The prices will rise as the current stocks become exhausted. Cds are infintely preferable (vinyl better still) - I like to listen to stuff thru my old pioneer amp and turntable, and eltax cd player - not a mp3 player fan!
