Kind of interesting.
Here is a link to the artists site where you can get the album in bittorrent or just download each song.

http://www.kleptones.com/pages/downloads_hiphopera.html
(that is the artists page so this is completely legal)

the tracklist doesnt make sense because they are all just one word.

enjoy:)

pretty interesting how they incorporated the original songs into their songs..

I ended up downloading the zipfile from the site becuase the torrent had no seeds or peers on it at all.

i've had this a while now...and am just getting back into it...

question for the musical experts....is SSOR intro backwards...or is it just tinkered with?

there are some interesting songs used. and some of the raps are cool

all in all - one of the better efforts

I downloaded this a while ago and even though I can't stand hip-hop I thought this mix album to be quite brilliant! All of the acappella hip-hop samples match the timing so perfectly you'd swear the artists had collaborated with Queen on each track. Check out Don't Stop Me Now and I'm Going Slightly Mad...amazing! A lot of hard work went into making this and it's a free download so it's really not worth complaining about. Enjoy it for a laugh, if anything.

I personally fell in love with this album.
The mixes are classy, with Queen providing perfect instrumentation for these fellows.
The best attribute of this over, say, Q-Unit or the Grey Album (Jay-Z vs. Beatles) is that there is more than one artist, so you don't really get tired of one.
IMO, I thought Eminem was a good fit for Bicycle Race.

To answer above questions:
The Seven Seas of Rhye intro is sped up, with a little bit of Misfire guitar sprinkled in.
And "Ridicule" is a quicker version of the Queen Talks track from an Innuendo single.

As a "bonus track", try to find "Bo" from the Kleptones. All the different versions of Bohemian Rhapsody smooshed into one song.

No worse a disgrace than Queen collaborating with Robbie Williams, Wynonna or the We Will Rock You stage play.
