Amoeba Review

10/16/2017

One of the most influential post-punk records of all time, The Queen is Dead, has been remastered for the very first time and reissued in multi-format expanded editions with demos, b-sides & alternative takes. Originally released in 1986, the album has been critically acclaimed since day one, thanks to the enduring strength of album singles "The Boy with the Thorn in His Side," "Bigmouth Strikes Again," and "There Is a Light That Never Goes Out." And those are just the singles -- several other classic tracks can also be found here.

 

The 3-CD/DVD set comes complete with the newly remastered original album, a second disc of additional recordings, including demo versions, alt takes & b-sides, and a third disc called Live In Boston, containing tracks recorded in concert at the Great Woods Center For The Performing Arts on August 5, 1986. The DVD features the 2017 remastered version of the album in 96kHz / 24-bit PCM, plus The Queen Is Dead – A Film By Derek Jarman.
