I've been debating for a long time whether or not I should buy this DVD. Any tips or help would be most welcome.

Yeah, excellent video quality and sound. Only problem is that the vocls in some songs are clearly out of sync with freddies mouth. You dont notice it much though.

Buy it anyway. I got mine from Korea for 50p, was worth every penny :)

Queen Rocks is utter shite (and not available on LEGAL dvd ;-)

WWRY is superb! Make sure to get the DTS version - image is stunning and the sound will easily BLOW YOU AWAY! One of the best Queen dvd's out there!

Queen Rocks is just songs you already have, but badly distorted - NOBY is available as a CD single and the only exclusive track is a new version of I Can't Live With You, which again is ruined to due distrotion from over compression. Nice artwork though.

WWRY is by far the best live Queen DVD out there... at the moment, and quite possibly for ever. In terms of picture quality and the audio. The only bad points are that, like the Rainbow footage, they have taken the footage from two different nights so sometimes it doesn't sync up well. At one point, you can also tell they have flown in the vocal track from the other night because when Freddie is adlibbing they have left both vocal tracks on by accident.

Good video and very decent audio mix. However, NEVER listen to the Dolby Digital version on that disc as it's really terrible. The balance is weird as Freddie's vocals and Roger's drums are up higher than everything else. The DTS one is a properly balanced mix. Don't know how they managed to screw the DD version, but they did!

Oh and while the sound is good and nothing to be sniffed at - it will NOT blow you away if you've got the other official Queen dvd releases like the GVHits discs. I listened to the WWRY disc recently and was pretty disappointed. But that's me. I'm sure you'll enjoy it. But it's nowhere near the quality of the official audio dvd discs. But it's got the best video compared to the official releases!

Peace,
Adam.

I wonder if Pioneer will release this on Blu-Ray?
Or did Queen Productions actually buy the rights to this as I heard from rumours recently?

Yeah, the audience is appallingly pathetic but who cares. The version of Somebody To Love is EASILY the best version I've ever heard/seen. The whole freakin' concert is great but that really sticksout for me.

YES. Definitely.

Debate no longer.

Buy it!


ETA: <<prepares to dodge tomatoes>> Actually, one of the reasons I LOVE this is because the audience doesn't sing along in "Love of My Life." It's *just Freddie* - in that beautiful lower key with guitar. Aaaah. Love it.

(Although his and Brian's reaction to them not singing is funny).

great DVD, who really cares about the crowd?...I know I don't. The bands on fire, and freddie is at his best. I'm not sure which is better, MK or WWRY?

For me, MK is far far better. The WWRY one is a bit dry in comparison. The vibe of MK in comparison is much sweeter.

Peace,
Adam.

I care. If I buy live album/video - I want to hear/see live show with 'live' audience, without overdubs etc.
