I realize this is a fairly newbie-ish topic to ask, but are there any websites out there with contemporary Queen album reviews? (In other words, album reviews that appeared in magazines like Rolling Stone, Sounds, Record Mirror, etc. from, say, 1984 about The Works)

Before you yell at me, I tried Google, and came up with a few hits, but nothing that I was particularly interested in. Any help would be appreciated.

There are some reviews on rollingstone.com, although most of them aren't great! Here's the link:

try searching for the "All Music Guide"....I dunno about the internet version, but I have a fairly recent edition of the book....along with an earlier edition........and the reviewer in the later version, one Greg Prato........seems to LOVE Queen......and he gives alot of my other favorite bands good reviews as well!

Anyone else noticed that on the ROlling Stone homepage you can download the Queen 'track' "yeah" from the Made in Heaven album for only 99 cents?

A BARGAIN!
