Classic Rock Mag: Tribute to Queen CD

Picked up the January issue of Classic Rock magazine today. It's not a magazine I'd ordinarily be drawn to, but this issue includes a CD full o' Queen covers, and everyone loves Queen! Plus, the "Bohemian Rhapsody" cover features an autoharp played upside down and... well, actually I really dislike that cover. Several of them are pretty cool though.

The magazine itself includes a look back at the making of Queen's A Night At The Opera, a feature on L.A. Guns, interviews, reviews... and... oh no... Classic Rock's list of the best album's of 2005. Just when I thought it was safe to buy another music magazine. Almost February and we're still not done with the best-of lists! Very well... here's a partial list...
