Has anyone else got this DVD? Bought it a couple of weeks ago alongside ROTC DVD and thought it was alright, it's got no proper interviews with the band, but it does go into detail about their albums, also got some guy showing you how to play like brian may,

all in all, not bad for about £11

I have not actually bought 'Magic Moments' as of yet. So what makes it so bad?

What makes it so bad is that there is absolutely no input from the lads at all. All this DVD is a bunch of z list "celebs" regaling the same old tired stories, based on a brief encounter years ago. A yawnfest from start to finish. Under Review, on the other hand, does include a partual clip of a Freddie interview. Other highlights are live clips from both Hammersmith Christmas gig from 1975 and Budapest.

Music Video Distributors has just released QUEEN's "Queen: Under Review 1973-1980" DVD.

Between 1973 and 1980, one of England's finest-ever groups released a body of work displaying such quality, strength and individuality, that such an outpouring of creativity has rarely been equalled in the rock era. The legacy of those classic records has maintained an indelible stamp on the radar of every music fan across the globe, and the band's absolute pinnacle of achievement during this period remains among the world’s all time favorite pieces of music.

"Queen: Under Review 1973 - 1980" features rare live and studio performances of the band playing some of their best known hits; rare and classic QUEEN interview footage, and a host of other features, all interspersed with the independent review and criticism from a panel of esteemed experts. These include; the broadcaster, journalist and longtime friend of Freddie Mercury, Paul Gambaccini; rock author, journalist and QUEEN expert Malcolm Dome; guitarist and journalist Simon Bradley; contributing editor from Uncut magazine Nigel Williamson; ex-Melody Maker features editor Chris Welch, among many others contributors. And with plenty of DVD "extras" and superb slipcase packaging this is the ultimate DVD set for the band's millions of fans.

"Keep Yourself Alive" (Recorded Live In London during the early 1970s)
"Seven Seas Of Rhye" (recorded in Hungary during the 1980s)
"Killer Queen" (from a very rare "Top of the Pops" appearance)

I got that DVD same price as you got yours 11.99 from Virgin. I just picked it up and said to my mate "Wow, whats this?" Read the back and thought i'm gonna buy it! The guy playing the burns special is wicked at it. I would give it 8/10 seeing as it doesnt have any proper interviews with Queen.

How much music is in there?

Or is it nearly all talk?
