Best Queen release the later years

Postby TheHero » Sat Oct 01, 2016 5:59 pm

What do you think is the best product from the latest releases..? Think of tracklist, overall quality, layout/artwork, bonus material and value for the money.

i'm just going with the main content, not the bells and whistles or artwork.

then my favorite is hungarian rhapsody, blu ray. absolutely stunning video from the peak of their career.

it's my favorite Queen live product, wembley comes second because of low res quality
And the streets don't change, but baby the names...

Rainbow

Studio Collection was also great, but for a studio collection, it lost a bonus disc for the B sides.

Live At The Rainbow without a doubt. It still had a few problems, but was streets ahead of the rest.

Surprisingly enough, I also went for the Rainbow show.

The release did have it's flaws, but it still was worth the £10 to get the blu-ray.

I'm not even that huge on Queen's early work, but Rainbow is definitely the best thing they've put out recently, if only because the others are largely rehashes of stuff we've had before.

Rainbow is my favourite. The could have just released one show and thrown in a few tracks from the other as a bonus. But they didn't. Both concerts in full. And even though it was the same venue in the same year, enough time had passed for the shows to be different. And at that particular time they were probably at their most creative and hungry. And we had had very little before from that time period (the VHS edition in a bigger boxset I think being the only thing...?). They even managed a half decent cover for once.

So it was new stuff during an exciting period of their career and a nice 'full' release. Can't really fault it.

Studies Collection was great too and was exactly what it should have been but nothing we hadn't heard before, really, so that slides into second for me.

Can't really judge On Air yet but can't see me feeling its a better release than Rainbow

I went for the Studio Collection, if only for the fact that I'd been campaigning for it to be released that way for about fifteen years, and it was pretty much exactly as I wanted it to be.

That aside, Rainbow was a benchmark for how live stuff "should" be released. Shame Queen can't seem to live up to their standard on subsequent live product.

Rainbow for me as it's utterly mesmerizing. The Blu-Ray is great, as is the 2 CD set.
Best Queen song = Brighton Rock

Interesting fact that their first concert released, 1974, is considered the best among their live albums.
This was even before Bohemian Rhapsody, We Are The Champions and all their hits. :!:

IMO, Rainbow proved to me what promise they had as a live act. As much as I love Bohemian Rhapsody( literally my favorite song ever by anyone ) it was/is very good to see them before the major breakthroughs they had.

Is it? That's not what this poll's asking.

Personally, I still prefer Wembley '86, but I'm definitely biased because it was the first live album I ever bought.
