I am a huge Queen fan like everyone is here BUT some clown who goes by the name of Your Worst Nightmare disrespects Queen in a eral offensive way. He previously went by the name Cranky Reviewer before I filed enough emails to Amazon to ban the guy but he keeps coming back supposedly he saves his reviews and I wish I could find his email address and send him a virus! This fool thinks Duran Duran were the originators of rock. Duran Duran to me were a poor David Bowie meets Roxy Music facsimile. He writes counter reviews to every album I positively review and this war with this guy has been going on for almost two years! Here are the Queen reviews that the demented Your Worst Nightmare wrote, beware some are offensive taking shots at the great Freddie!

here was his review for the first Queen album:
Queen aren't rock and roll royalty; Duran Duran is, November 23, 2004
It is delusional to suggest that Queen is the roaylty of rock. That would be an insult to legends Duran Duran, who have sold 70 million albums worldwide and were Princess Diana's favorite group. Queen is so bad, that they can't even find a new lead singer after Freddie Mercury passed away. AC/DC did it, so why can't these bozos? Anyway, it's bad. One star.

Sheer Heart Attack:
Freddie the bucktoothed dragon, November 25, 2004
Reviewer: Your Worst Nightmare "A Classic Rock Lover's Worst Nightmare" - See all my reviews

Freddie Mercury was a bucktoothed wanker with ZERO talent and NO shame. In the 1980s, Queen performed in then-apartheid South Africa. That shows what little concern they had for the social turmoil that country was going through. But what's more, Freddie Mercury was a total bore. He had a hideous overbite; oversang every word of every lyric; and got booed off the stage at Wembley so many times. This CD is atrocious. Who, in 2004, likes Queen? Nobody! Avoid.

ANATO:
Another album from the socially irresponsible Queen, November 26, 2004
Queen is fronted by an ugly bucktoothed freak Freddie Mercury, who had enough lovers to make Elizabeth Taylor look chaste. This CD is a nightmare of rock and roll cliches and other forms of stupidity. This may offend Queen fans, but it's the truth. And the truth hurts. Deal with it.

The Game:
"Game" over, November 23, 2004
Lame album from a lame band. One song is called "Don't Try Suicide," which you might end up doing if you listen to even five minutes of this gutter trash.

FG Sdtk:
No!, November 25, 2004
Flop album from a flop movie. Both the band and the movie are 1980s artifacts. Pass.

Greatest Hits:
Lame album from a band that got rich on apartheid dollars, November 26, 2004
Queen, in a gross display of insensitivity, performed in then-aparthied South Africa in 1984. Blood was being shed and lives were lost while these bozos performed their "hits" on a stage. It was the most disgraceful rock and roll scandal of the 1980s. Do you really want to support a band that got rich off aparthied dollars? Do you want to reward a band that's indifferent about the social turmoil that took place in South Africa? For the love of all that is decent, I beg you NOT to get this or any other album by Queen.

HS:
Rightfully neglected Queen album, November 23, 2004
The hit single off this dud is "Body Language," which steals the title from Kylie's 2004 multiplatinum smash album. That song isn't as good as anything by Kylie, and it's painful to listem to. Face it: Queen is so marginally talented, that they couldn't get a new lead singer after Freddie Mercury passed away (tragically). AC/DC had NO problem getting Brian Johnson when Bon Scott passed away, so why can't Queen? Because Queen is overrated. Truth hurts.

The Works:
Yawn, November 25, 2004
"I want to break free" from Queen and their music. Lots of production but no substance. One star.

AKoM:
Atrocious, November 25, 2004
More garbage from that bucktoothed freak Freddie Me

Well, we can think he is an ignorant twat all we want....because he is. But then again....

He is just another person with another view and another stance that differs from ours. I mean, I think Queen were musical geniuses, as do all of the people here. But you can't expect all people to like them, regardless of their lame, immature backlashes that make no sense.

I understand you....
But not all people can be understood.
Cheers.

LadyMoonshineDown said it perfectly. Even if this reviewer has taken a completely ignorant stance to reviewing the albums, it's his loss, not ours. But it's amazing what kind of pathetic insults that guy can come up with. I mean, even if you don't like Queen, it's impossible to say that they didn't have talent, especially for reasons like they stole the title of Body Language from Kylie Minogue or that Freddie was bucktoothed.

The man likes Britney Spears, I think that alone is a sign that he hasn't any taste, and that every word out of his mouth will probably be utter garbage.

That's true. Britney Spears has been beyond defense for years now!

I know that but his asinine reviews are going too far by disrespecting me and making fun of my name. My name is Terrence, not Terri. I am a male who won't back down from losers like that guy so I created three alter egos(read my reviews as Even Worst Nightmare From Hell, Baddest MF and Stone Coldest) to banish him from Amazon. He counters my reviews because people love my reviews!

Hm! Amazon.com should watch for things of that nature and edit the responses because if a novice to Queen's music read some of those reviews, they could take them to heart and not buy the CDs -- and go somewhere else and buy them! (I tend not to read reviews on things when I buy them, I use my own judgement!)

People can't help how their teeth form. Also, Queen's Body Language came out in 1982. Kylie's in 2004. Kylie had only two hit albums here in America whilst the skank from Australia only had two US singles/albums that sold!

i think the reviewer has a sense of humour - a warped one - but humour nonetheless, i think "a little oversensitivity" - reserved previously almost exclusively for Electric 6, has been part of our problem here....it looks like a joke

and none of it is different to Fatty's jokes...except this guy may not be a queen fan...so what - it's funny in places - live n let live people

Read my reviews as Terrence J Reardon(my real name) and I give recommendations to alot of stuff as I have had listened to and/or owned the albums I reviewed!

The joke has gone too far! Once was funny but then he started making fun of me which is not cool, it is downright COLD. Once that happened, I went to war. I didn't start it but I sure as Hell will FINISH IT!

Us Americans didn't see the Pepsi commercial Thank Goodness! Also, we didn't see the commercial where they used Great Gig in the Sky for a British version of Tylenol called Neurofen.

Forget him.
If he wishes to be an asshole of many sorts, then let him. Obviously if people love your reviews, then there is no sense in trying to rid of one stupid cunt who likes opposition. And to be childish about it and make fun of someones name obviously gives way to his lack of intelligence.
So forget him and don't worry about it. He's probably some 40 year old fat/bald guy who lives in his parents basement and stays on the computer all day trying to think up of good snappy remarks to make himself forget how much of a loser he is in the real world. I wouldn't worry about it.

*And to gunpowder gelatine: That pepsi commercial makes me want to puke. In fact, I'd rather swallow up my own vommit then watch that commercial, lol.*

Terri, have you tried leaving the house & getting a job, life or girlfriend/boyfriend?

Cos I really couldn't give a monkey's chuff what two window licking obsessives do on the entirely subjective reviews bit of Amazon. If you can't rise above his apparently short-sighted views, try the off button on your PC.

I'm American, too, and somehow I ended up watching it! I think it may have aired once. We did get the joy of watching the commercial for Viagra using We Are The Champions, though! ;)

Oh god....

I remember seeing that Viagra commercial and almost spitting out my drink because I was laughing way too hard. I guess I could have been offended....and at the start, I was. I mean, how dare they use a Queen song to promote a drug to turn limpdick idiots into big "macho men." But then I laughed because well....it was just too funny to get upset over.
cheers.

My name is Terrence, thank you! For your information man, I am autistic(I have a form of it called Aspergers Syndrome(read about it at www.aane.org)) and I can't work because I am being paid what they called Social Supplementary Income by the United States government due to my disability which I have had since I was 3 when it was just called Autism(Aspergers Syndrome was not a known type of Autism until 1997, I was re-diagnosed with Aspergers in 1999 when I was 23). If I were working and collecting Social Supplementary Income simultaneously, I would be arrested and put in jail(trust me on this one, OK)! It is illegal to work a paying job and collect Social Supplementary Income at the same time, in other words I'd be in prison for years! Also, I haven't had a girlfriend since I was 13 because I got turned down due to music taste, being in school band and lived a clean living life! Ease up!
