Between 1973 and 1980, one of England's finest-ever groups released a body of work displaying such quality, strength and individuality that such an outpouring of creativity has rarely been equalled in the rock era. The legacy of those classic records has maintained an indelible stamp on the radar of every music fan across the globe, and the band's absolute pinnacle of achievement during this period remains among the world's all-time favourite pieces of music.

The legendary status of Queen as classic rock's most endearing act was accomplished through the enormous talents of all the band members, be it Brian May's classic songwriting and almost inconceivable skills on the guitar, Roger Taylor's reliable yet unique drumming style, John Deacon's solid backbone of bass or the irreplaceable Freddie Mercury's unparalleled ability to delight an audience, making him quite possibly the finest entertainer of all time. Their status increases year after year, but it was during the 1970s that such an accolade was nailed down and became permanent.

Queen Under Review, 1973-1980 features rare live and studio performances of the band, rare and classic Queen interview footage and a host of other features, all interspersed with the independent review and criticism from a panel of esteemed experts including the broadcaster, journalist and long-time friend of Freddie Mercury, Paul Gambaccini; rock author, journalist and Queen expert Malcolm Dome; guitarist and journalist Simon Bradley; contributing editor from Uncut Magazine, Nigel Williamson; ex-Melody Maker writer Chris Welch; and others.
