    3,5 stars I?m not really a Queen fan, but I?ve watched ?Bohemian Rhapsody? recently (and liked it!) and have also seen the Queen musical ?We will rock you? (and liked that one as well!). There are really a lot of great song this band produced. And I vividly remember the...

    Queen: Album by Album by Martin Popoff is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early December. 15 chapters, one for each album, in deep, rich technicolor with track lists and formal production notes, but then steps into the album to learn about the goings-on while it was being made...

    I was recently given the opportunity to read and review three music books. The books are essentially the same, with different artists as the topics. The books cover three bands, album by album. But when I say bands, I?m talking of the some of the biggest bands the music industry has ...

    I've never been a huge Queen fan. I had and liked their Greatest Hits when I was a teenager, but never got much beyond that. Over the years, I've owned other albums by them - The Works inadvertently when I didn't return it to the Colombia Record and Tapes Club on time, and both their f...

    An in-depth look, album-by-album, of Queen's entire discography. Packed with photos of the band, memorabilia, and gig posters, this should be on every Queen fan's TBR. I really enjoyed the group interview style of the writing, and getting to read what famous musicians like Sir ...

    This book is a beautiful compendium of Queen albums, with discussion included by various knowledgable persons, some who knew Queen members and others who are very familiar with their work. Even if you aren?t interested in the details of each song, the gorgeous photos would be enough ...

    Queen - Album by Album by Martin Popoff The reason I requested to review this book was probably due to the new movie that came out about Freddy Mercury. I have always enjoyed the songs I have heard by him but have to admit that I had never heard of most of the songs in the albums di...

    I think Rob Halford, lead legend of Judas Priest, said it best: ?The music that touches you in your youth is magnified as you get older. Each record can be a virtual time machine?all you need to hear is a second or two and you go back to that place and time when you first heard it....

    Looking at the author's CV at the end here, you realise he must hate Queen, for he's written about a thousand books about far inferior bands before now. But you can also count them as dress rehearsals for a very good volume. It doesn't aim to correct the bodged history given by That Fi...

    As I was growing up, my mother taught me all about music, from Mozart to Nirvana. Since I first learned about Queen, it has always fascinated me. Freddie has always been my favorite artist. When I saw this book on Netgalley I immediately wished for it, knowing for sure I was definite...

    I am a huge fan of Queen and have been since I was growing up, which is why I picked this up from the library on a whim in the first place. When I say Queen, I mean the version that existed up until Freddie Mercury passed away at the end of 1991. The lay out and presentation of t...
