The case of the disc is poor again,no jewel case like the UK version of the 2 disc 2011 Remaster,which is more eye appealing and a lot easier to remove the inner booklet. On the inner booklet it also states that five of the songs have come from the original Master half inch tape,whereas the others have come from the Master Digital source. There is a quality difference that can be heard,mainly in the lack of depth,when compared to the others....Tracks 1,2,5,8, and 11 are from the tapes. The audio on this album is very nice indeed, the regular CD version has always left me feeling that the album had a very under produced feel to it - (due to Freddie's health), but when listening to the album as a whole,each song actually feels quite full and complete. I guess that must be the difference between to the two sound qualities. CD's sound very hollow compared to SACD's. Innuendo starts off and judging by the song no one would have ever guessed Freddie was ill or dying,the vocals are very clear and strong. Rogers drums stand out more on basically every track on this album, as does Johns Bass,again down to the quality that these discs allow. I'm going slightly mad sounds a lot more richer than before, I've always thought that the vocals sounded as if Fred was drunk, but no. They are very full and deep. Headlong comes in sounding not as powerful as it could have been due to the way it was recorded, the whole album was recorded digitally straight in PCM, but five songs where at the same time recorded onto the regular half inch tapes they always used, they must have wanted to compare quality. The tape versions were used for this release for the five songs, which makes them stand out. Pity that. This means Don't Try So Hard actually has more depth and power to it than Headlong? Basically the whole album sounds fantastic with standout moments from each song, but not the best in the Queen Series for quality,a sort of hit and miss.
