Limited double vinyl LP in gatefold jacket. Greatest Hits II is a compilation album by British rock band Queen, released in 1991. It reached #1 on the UK Albums Chart, and is the tenth best-selling album in UK Chart history with sales of 3.9 million copies as of 2014, and has sold 19 million copies worldwide. Accumulated sales (Greatest Hits II and Classic Queen for the US and Canada combined) are in excess of 23 million worldwide. The compilation contains most of Queen's European hits from 1981 to 1991. It was released less than a month before the death of lead singer Freddie Mercury and was the last Queen release of any kind while he was still alive.

The second volume of Queen's Greatest Hits appeared a decade after the first; a decade after the group started its slow shift from international superstars toward ruling the world that existed outside of the United States. Apart from "Under Pressure" and "Radio Ga Ga," all of the 17 singles here did not crack the American Top 40, but they're well-known throughout the world, particularly the operatic anthems "A Kind of Magic," "I Want It All," "I Want to Break Free," and "Who Wants to Live Forever." Generally, the songs here favor melodrama to untrammeled rock & roll, which means while there's nothing here that hits as hard as "Tie Your Mother Down"; there's also nothing as light on its feet as "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," either. This is not necessarily a bad thing: nobody scaled the dramatic heights like Queen, and this captures their pomp & circumstance at its most polished. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
