Regular visitors to PoP will be more than acquainted with the fact that Queen is one of my favorite rock bands of all time. Music videos have always played a significant role in Queen’s success and finally almost all of the band’s promotional videos have been compiled and collected into one 2-DVD set for fans to savour. All the videos are restored and shown in 16:9 widescreen and audio has been remixed for DTS 5.1 Surround Sound. Also includes audio commentary from Brian May and Roger Taylor (even snippets of interviews with Freddie Mercury as well).
If you’re a Queen fan, I don’t really need to sell it to you, do I?
Well okay. Suffice for me to say that Queen is one of the most successful rock bands ever, both commercially and critically, and remains a powerful influence on modern pop culture to this day. Eg. Lady Gaga. Nuff said. For me the most of the best tunes on Disc One viz. “Bohemian Rhapsody”, “Killer Queen”, “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, “Play the Game”, “Somebody to Love”, “We Will Rock You” and “We Are the Champions”.
Disc Two does not quite match the first disc but there are still hits of quality like “Radio Ga Ga”, “Under Pressure”, “A Kind of Magic”, “I Want To Break Free” and “One Vision” to keep the Queen fan suitably entertained.
