I wouldn't go that far...
There are some real improvements on there as well...and as far as I have heard yet, the first two albums sound incredibly good. So does 'I wanna testify'.

Will listen again properly over the weekend, today's focus was mainly on the new album... ;)

So those first two albums been remastered again since the original cd issues? Does the booklet confirm this?

I guess so. They sound much richer and clearer now, esp. Fun in Space. Track lengths are different to the ones from the 1996 CDs as well (I think 'My Country' is even about 3 or 4 secs longer...)
Will check in detail this weekend.

Jeeeez the mistakes listed so far are quite embarassing...especially the "mix" problems. How is it possible??

On the other hand i'm happy that they remASTERED the tracks to improve the sound experience.

edit thanks to RonB ;)

Remixed or remastered? That is a big difference..

Received The Lot today (well, yesterday...) and just finished watching the DVD. I have to check it tomorrow with a different DVD player but it seems that my DVD has some sort of mastering error. Whenever there are some fast movements (waving hands, drumming) then the film stutters or flickers. Has anybody else the same problem with that DVD?

That's because he didn't want Queen songs on the set (setting aside for a moment 'HFE', since that was released by The Cross first, before anyone gets argumentative here), as odd as it sounds.

I can hardly believe that this is the case because it would mean it's intended to be that way. Anyone with half a brain who saw what I saw when I was watching the DVD must have come to the conclusion that it's impossible to release such a product. That is not a minor mistake it ruins the whole DVD. I can only hope the problem is either somewhere else (settings, Player, TV) or only with my DVD, so the problem can be solved. But I never had something like this in the past.

Anyone else watched the DVD so far?

^ Try a different player, the one in your PC perhaps?
That might be the key.
