How do you feel about the last Queen DVD and CD releases ?

Good :
Greatest Video Hits 1 ; Great sound and some nice extra's as WWRY fast from the houston concert and Nom I'm here from the Rainbow + the Bohemian Rhapsody section which was just nice.
***
Greatest Video Hits 2 ; great sound and lots of extras like the one vision documentairy, karaoke version of UP, IWTBF, FWBF and TM. Also lots of nice interviews and the performances in Montreux.
*****
Live at Wembley DVD (+CD):
The sound is OK but not very good. The drums and the basguitar are unclear with no depth. But this DVD has got a very good filmed concert with a good picture quality. This is one of best performances of the band. The DVD has got a lot of extra's like the documentary "Beautiful day", Queen cam, rehearsels and a part of the Friday concert + a new interview about the concert with Brian and Roger.
*****
Queen on fire (+CD)
Again a very nice dvd. The sound is much better than Wembley but this one has not been filmed as well as Wembley. It has got a very variated setlist, much better than wembley. The extras are great. Some nice interviews and some part of the concert in Vienna and Japan. I would have been even more great if this was also in DTS 5.1 but I don't know if this was possible.

Bad :
Queen greatest hits III. This is just a release cause of financial reasons. Common Greatest hits 3 ?????? They gave us some remixes and stuff like that. I don't like this, this could have been much better.

This is the way I feel about it. Sure, I most have forgotten something... We are always complaining about the stuff they release but I think it's not that bad gheghe. I like all the DVD's. It would be really nice to have a concert of the seventies in Dolby surround or DTS 5.1. Let's see what happens with the ANATO 30th anniversary. Maybe, maybe we might get some really nice suprises. I also saw some small parts of the Sheffield DVD and this looks really fantastic.

How do you feel about the latest Queen product releases ?

I agree with you. They were all good except Greatest Hits III.
