 Queen | View the Music Artists Biography Online | VH1.com
Queen's music was a bizarre yet highly accessible fusion of the macho and the fey.
But vocalist Freddie Mercury brought an extravagant sense of camp to the band, pushing them toward kitschy humor and pseudo-classical arrangements, as epitomized on their best-known song, "Bohemian Rhapsody." Mercury, it must be said, was a flamboyant bisexual who managed to keep his sexuality in the closet until his death from AIDS in 1991.
Queen was more or less a straight metal album and failed to receive much acclaim, but Queen II became an unexpected British breakthrough early in 1974.

 Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Classic Queen   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Classic Queen is a compilation of hits that spans their era of music from the 70's and 80's up to the early 90's.
Queen were one of the most unique, original and talented bands to ever grace the music industry, and their command and mastery of multiple styles in the music world was really something that shouldn't have been taken lightly.
This is not a comprehensive greatest hits collection by any means, and not nearly all the good songs Queen created, but is still a great collection for those not familiar with Queen, who want just a sample to digest, especially Americans who had insufficient exposure to Queen's eighties work.

 The Disclaimer Music Review Archive: Q
Greatest Hits wound up with most of Queen's hit singles- "We Will Rock You," "We are the Champions," "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," et al- but it doesn't contain "Bohemian Rhapsody," which is most people's favorite Queen number, I think it's safe to say.
But it is weak for a greatest hits package, especially coming from such talented and inventive popsters as Queen.
But Queen's Greatest Hits is still a decent collection of many of the band's better moments, including greats like "Killer Queen," "We Are the Champions," "Fat-Bottomed Girls," and "Bicycle Race" (yes, I like that cheesy bicycle song!).

 Amazon.com: Customer Reviews: Queen - Greatest Hits   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
It's not all of the greatest hits, but considering how many this band really had, you can't put them all on one album.

Queen put out several hit songs during their hey day in the seventies and eighties.

Embracing the exaggerated pomp of prog rock and heavy metal, as well as vaudevillian music hall, the British quartet delved deeply into camp and bombast, creating a huge, mock-operatic sound with layered guitars and overdubbed vocals.
But vocalist Freddie Mercury brought an extravagant sense of camp to the band, pushing them toward kitschy humor and pseudo-classical arrangements, as epitomized on their best-known song, "Bohemian Rhapsody."

It wasn't until the 1980's that he scored minor hit's with "Bad Case Of Loving You" and in 1985, his signature song "Addicted To Love", one of the first highlights of the emerging music video scene.
They hit paydirt in 1974 with the million-seller 'Come and Get Your Love.' Lead singers Pat and Lolly Vegas had previously worked under their own names, appearing in the 1965 film It's a Bikini World prior to forming Redbone.
The result was this 1969 release for Elektra, the only Renaissance album to feature the Relfs-the Annie Haslam lineup took over before their next release, Prologue-and one of the more adventuresome albums of the late '60s, here reissued with new liner notes that tell the rather complicated tale of how this album came to be.
