The first volume in Queen's 40 collection includes the band's first five studio albums, Queen, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera, and A Day at the Races. Remastered and stocked with bonus cuts, most of which are demos, the occasional B-side, alternate and isolated vocal takes, and live tracks, these deluxe reissues, which sound infinitely better than the ones that appeared in the late '90s, were released to coincide with the group's 40th anniversary. ~ James Christopher Monger
