Who here is going to buy it? Or should we all boycott it and make the Queenzone voice heard, all 50 of us.

Here is the link to Hollywood Records press release of "Stone Cold Classics", the smart folks who bought the Queen catalog in 1990.

It's o.k. because it is just a limited edition for the publicity right now here in the states for their showing up on (uuuh) "American Idol" and then they can put it out of print.

Personally I think this is the best single-disc compilation they've put together, and wish this would be the official Greatest Hits (though I do think the endless compilations are silly). They finally got Tie Your Mother Down and Stone Cold Crazy on a single-disc comp, so it's a better balance of all their music. The other compilations had too much '80s pop IMHO. This compilation might make people think of Queen as a *rock* band again rather than a mainstream pop band....

This is not the best of Queen. I don't know what this is. Killer Queen and Now I'm Here would have been nice.

No, this is definitely not the best of Queen. The list features the less-original, less-creative, more conventional Queen songs, rather than those that really define the band.

Well they were taken off of the Greatest Hits 1 & 2 set and the Platinum Collection, and I guess I didn't consider Classic Queen a "greatest hits" disc which is term I should have used (actually I thought that had gone out of print too along with Rocks...oh well). I dunno...seems like as a greatest hits disc it has a good balance of different types of hit singles and a few good album hits...as for hit singles they left off things like Body Language and Flash and Invisible Man finally and replaced them with *rock* songs. Of course I'd rather hear all of Queen II instead but it just seems like the best single CD "greatest hits" comp they've done so far to me.

This album is obviously not aimed at die hard fans. It's for those people watching American Idol.

It smells like the K-tel *Queen Collection* 15 of the Best, from 1984...as for the setlist, I can do that myself, by programming the cd player in my car. without paying for Simon's boots to get polished

Why don't they just re-release Sheer Heart Attack as a free download? That would jump start interest in Queen's music.

So from what i gather reading this so far....no one is going to buy this and support Queen here in the States?

Hmm...seems a little odd. If it's a "limited edition" no one plans on buying then it sounds to me like we have a instant collectible on our hands.

I have to say though that i don't care for the cover.

The cover is brutal; it may be even worse than ROTC and that's saying alot. The font doesn't suit Queen and the layout is terrible... it looks like something you'd spit out at 4:30 on a Friday before a long weekend. I'm surprised the layout "artist" didn't include a smaller PR head!

A simple cover for simple minds. (This does not mean that I approve of this cover!!!)
