Queen + Greatest Hits Iii

on November 15, 1999

A new entry at number five on the UK album chart this week, (all the best albums go in at five these days, remember 'hours...'?) is a 17-track compilation called 'Queen + Greatest Hits III'. As the more astute among you will have realized this is the third greatest hits album from Queen to date, and in fact the second to include the number one hit song 'Under Pressure'. 'Greatest Hits II' contained a slight edit of the original version, but as I'm sure most of you already know the track has been radically re-mixed for this latest hits compilation, and for a single release in December.

Sensation

on November 15, 1999

We have updated the SENSATION site with a new Matt Collings' critique.

Here is an excerpt:

'Sensation' wasn't known about when I wrote Blimey! I remember the subject coming up just after the book was published in 1997 and thinking how boring it sounded. It would just be the same old faces with the same old gags and the usual old nonsense in the papers.

The same old rhetorics being spouted. Everybody awkwardly occupying positions in an unconvincing way. But then when the show came on at the Royal Academy later that year it was exciting. It was a very uneven grouping.
