    Queen
    Ive been around the music block four thousand times and never stopped by the house of Queen. Sure, Ive heard it, but I never bought it. Then, this weekend, my job brought me in contact with the band (both major papers shredded their performance) and I thought maybe Id go for a copy of A Night At The Opera. I dont want to hear a greatest hits package as theyve been FMd to death and I know ANATO is considered their best work. I see also theyve got a 5.1 remix version which tickles my techno follicles. I never really liked Queen but I have a rule that when I meet a musician/band I put aside my prejudices and try to listen with fresh ears--hey, it worked with Barry Manilow. I did, however, gayly discharge this mandate when I saw the pretty petunia Neil Sedaka.

    How does BM,NS and Queen even get in the same sentence? There's plenty of good stuff on the greatest hits that didnt get much FM play.

    If you want to here some real queen before the all out comercialism, please give a listen to Queen, Queen II, and Sheer Heart Attack. You may find the majority of these albums more enjoyable.

    It would be on the same lines as early Genesis vs latter and solo Phil Collins.

    You haven't lived until you've heard "Death on Two Legs" and "The Prophet Song".

    Those are two of my favourites also. Imagine a great 5.1 mix of The Prophet Song. Wouldn't that be the bomb!

    Well, there is a DVD-A of their (contrary to our buddy HyFi) best album with a 5.1 mix. Don't know if the mix is great or not, but Sloshy has reported on it in the past.

    What's funny is, I have the DVD-A, and I have a DVD-A player, but I have no surround system no mo', so I do have to imagine it.

    I've got that disk. It's pretty good. Definately, it's worth $5!
