  • If you’re new to Queen and you’re planning on getting the Platinum collection, then I can tell you for sure that you won’t be dissapointed… however, it would be a better choice to get the old “Greatest Hits I & II” box set with “Made In Heaven” added. Why??… because “Greatest Hits I & II” has the best of Queen from 1974-1991, and the only album that Queen put out after Freddie Mercury’s death in 1991 was ‘Made In Heaven’ Greatest Hits 3 has the hit tracks from Made In Heaven, plus some good hits that weren’t before included (These Are The Days, No One But You, Princes Of The Universe, Thank God It’s X-mas). The bad thing is that Greatest Hits 3 has a bunch of refills that should have never been included… “Under Pressure (Mix)”, “The Show Must Go On” (w/ Elton John) and a horrible version of “Another One Bites The Dust” by Wyclef Jean that ruins this album just as much as Jar Jar Binks ruined Star Wars: Episode I. What is even more annoying about Greatest Hits 3 is the fact that they left out REAL QUEEN HITS, like… Tie Your Mother Down, Scandal, and Love Of My Life and they had to include a bunch of tracks that aren’t even QUEEN songs. You wouldn’t regret buying ‘The Platinum Collection’ but I can almost guarantee that when you listen the 3rd CD, you’d want to skip tracks 1,2, and especially 14!!.
