Album Review

The eight-CD Queen box set The Crown Jewels boasts remastered versions of the band's first eight studio albums (from 1973-1980) and a booklet that contains an essay by MTV VJ Matt Pinfield and images from the original record inserts. Each of the CD jewel cases have been made to look like replicas of the original records (with cardboard embossed covers), and the set itself comes in a blue velvet carrying case. There's no debating that the music included in The Crown Jewels is some of the finest rock music ever recorded (90 songs are included in all, such as "We Will Rock You," "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Another One Bites the Dust," etc.).
