I found this book the other day, I'm pretty sure it was the Rolling Stone complete album guide or something to that effect, and when I got to Queen, I was disgusted to find that out of all the Queen albums rated (all except GH3 and Made in Heaven) none of them got higher than 3 1/2 stars, and there were only 2 of them that got rated that 'highly'. The rest were either poor or even disasterous! Adding insult to injury, Bohemian Rhapsody was made to sound as if it was 5.55 mins of utter nonsense and Freddie was a pompus git AND an album by Queen Latifa got 5 stars!
I've never actually red a rolling stone magazine, (I prefer Rip It Up) so can I ask, have they got a thing against Queen or are they all just a bunch of tone-deaf weirdos who wouldn't know a good song even if it bit them on the arse?

the reason they hate queen so much is because John and Roger went over to the editor in chiefs house one night back in late 76 and did the old paper bag with poop trick and lit it on fire as a joke.

When it comes to Satisfaction (I Cant Get No), I have to say I prefer Devo's version to biglips and friends

Rolling Stone is one of the worst magazines I have ever read. Aside from providing the worst reviews in the worst possible taste in music, they also endlessly spew pseudo-liberal bullshit to appeal to the masses of ignorant teens in the country.

I agree with you that "Rolling Stone" sucks. What a dumb magazine. You make a good point about Queen Latifa, or whatever her name is. "Rolling Stone" has to be politically correct and pretend like a black woman artist is really great when her songs are so unoriginal. What a joke!
