I rediscovered Queen at 60
Reviewed in the United States on December 17, 2018
I always liked Queen back in the seventies. I wasn't a huge fan but I always appreciated their music. That enjoyment lasted through the eighties and early nineties. I was excited to hear that a movie about Freddie and the band was coming out this past November and that Rami Malek would play Freddie. As the weeks that led up to the movie's debut went by, I wanted to hear more and more music by Queen. I spoiled myself by listening to everything I could on Amazon Music. Their music was quickly becoming a part of me and I couldn't let it go. Watching the news depressed me, but hearing their fabulous harmonies, music and lyrics uplifted me. The songs transported me to a much better place. I'm so happy that I bought The Platinum Collection. The songs are brilliant! I bought it as an early Christmas present to myself. There are days when I become sad that Freddie is no longer with us, but then I think how fortunate I was to be a teen when he first started creating music. I didn't expect to rediscover Queen at my age, but I can't think of anything I've enjoyed listening to more since I hit the Big 6-0!
