IMO, they had cheesy editing combing songs and archive footage, but some of the videos weren't so bad.

The way that they edit things together drives me nuts. The worst example is Rare Live.

Playing devil's advocate...

They had some very nice videos like Days Of Our Lives, I'm Going Slightly Mad (probably the best video they did with Freddie), and some of the Miracle videos (Invisible Man and Breakthru especially) were pretty good too. It was only once Freddie became ill and wouldn't/couldn't do any videos anymore that they had limited resources. As much as I love The Show Must Go On, the video spoils the song for me.

As for compilation videos... ugh.

Personally, I wish Queen had stuck with David Mallet, because most of his videos were terrific, but the band weren't ever ones to stick with the same director/producer for too long. Hopefully, if QPR decide to do videos for the new album, they'll go with someone besides DoRo.

I nearly puked at the way how they edited 'Freddie Mercury - The Untold Story' with 'Mustapha playing in the background.

The worst for me has to be the archive clip editing on 'One Year Of Love'.

I find "In My Defence" to be very manipulative, and misrepresentative.

The way some of the footage "matches" with the lyrics is extremely tacky in other videos. Best (or should I say *worst*) example of this is in "Too Much Love Will Kill You," on the line "bleed and scream and crawl."


And how many times do we want to see that clip of Roger from "I Want to Be Free." Okay, maybe don't answer that, LOL - but it seems to be used way too frequently.

I just wish they'd bite the bullet and make a video with Freddie - Gollum style.

Head replacement technology is pretty good these days, just go for broke. I'm sick and tired of them using the same 2 second clips of Freddie for every music video that comes along!!

I think they made some great videos. I don't like some of the fast cutting but it probably hepled conceal Fred's illness. I think breakthru IGSM, The Miracle and headlong are memorable and I love In my Defence- it really shows who Freddie was- magnificent.

I like the video to In my Defense - i think it's great...to be honest videos don't really matter to me.

Being honest is the video for AOBTD any good?

I have to agree that they make very good video editing for songs with the resources they have, but they have no sense on what to do with documentaries. It´s boring to watch!!

With Queen they never try to appeal the old fans, they only want to bring more new fans, that´s why they use the same footage. Don´t forget, it´s only old footage for us! : ))

Take care

"Your opinions on DoRo"

After consulting my lawyer, I have decided against stating my opinion. It would be a violation of public obscenity laws worthy of a life-sentence, according to him.

Their concept videos arnt bad, those are some of my favourites (breakthru, days of our lives, etc..) but ..the editing together is sort of...done. No more. PLEASE!! Too much..

On the other hand, this guy did an awesome job with no-one but you http://youtube.com/watch?v=E7VlU-9ZUV0 <<2003 edit

DoRo did good work...when they were not doing work with Queen. Their Falco-videos are good, for instance. They just didn't do their editing properly when with Queen. And I don't just mean their collage-videos.

I think I will leave the Queen - DoRo comments aside, just this once... but I have to say I appeciate their 'Get Up, Stand Up' series... pretty good work...

Under Pressure '99 is pretty good, if on the hits 3 dvd it should be "tidied up" though to make it more cohesive.

like the clothing changes for the band and the colouring of the wembley sky to make it night
