Absolute Greatest

Charting over 20 years of making people rock, Absolute Greatest is a reminder of just what fine, and smart, rock and pop writers and musicians Messrs Deacon, May, Mercury and Taylor were and are.

The album features twenty of Queen's most iconic hits ranging from jaunty ditties such as Crazy Little Thing Called Love, to moving ballads like Who Wants To Live Forever.

And of course no Queen collection would be complete without the stadium stirring anthems We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.

Absolute Greatest is available in very personalized versions in which band members Brian May and Roger Taylor share their own memories about the tracks chosen for this collection.

In a limited-edition book version, the Queen photo archives are opened up with 52 pages of unseen and rare photos, and handwritten song lyrics by each member of the band (including corrections and rewrites).
