It's good in that it contains Queen Songs. If you are new to Queen then it could be an okay introduction but that's about it.

The artwork is rubbish and at the end of the day it is just another compilation cash-in of songs that the majority of established queen fans already have, released around the time Queen appeared on American Idol.

You are probably better off buying the Greatest Hits CDs instead. If you want the tracks with Paul Rodgers buy Return of the Champions instead.

I did buy a copy but only listened to it once, and went back to the standard (non-compilation) albums.

Yeah, I have it. It's only good as an introduction to Queen. The only reason I bought it was because there were a few songs on it that I didn't get on the Platinum 3 disc Greatest Hits Set, but other than that, it's just ok.

Avoid!!! It's toal crap - the cheapest cash-in ever! They (the record company that is) have not even bothered to fade in and out of the Q+PR live tracks!!! The "art"work is so ridiculous it hurts.

I haven't unwrapped it yet. Just like the last 4 greatest hits compilations I've bought. Knowing about the artwork now, I don't think I'll be opening it... just add it to the stack.

It sucks! Any introductory fan should start with "Queen's GReatest Hits." Any more serious fan already has all of the songs anyway.

my moms best friend bought it and she isnt really a hard core fan, but she came with us to the QPR concert, so she enjoys the listen once in a while. She said she liked it alot. I suppose its good for the moderate fans/new comers...

Am I going to buy it? Yah sure, if I win the lottery and I have cash to burn.
