Is it really worth to buying it?

It's definitely worth streaming on spotify . Its free, give it a listen.
I like the new material. 20th century fox fanfare is fun, but not something you'll play often I imagine.
Doing All Right is quite decent.
Don't stop me now is pointless if you already have the guitar version... possibly pointless if you don't tbf.
The live aid tracks sound fabulous, but you heard them before and the lack of crazy little thing is annoying.

FOG live is actually pretty good.

Is it worth buying? I put it on my Amazon wish list with the hope that someone gets it me for Christmas.
So I think it's worth someone else buying it.

only for a couple of unreleased live tracks on cd no.
the revisited versions are crap, what sense does it have to record some parts in 2018 with sounds that don't center anything with the original ones of the time?

For those kids who're getting into Queen or people who only half know their stuff, I think it'd be a great, fun album.

For hardcore Queen fans, it might only be worth getting if you're a completest really.

For newbies I'd genuinely recommend Live Killers and GH1 and 2 if you genuinely don't have anything else.

No.

The revisits are all crap, Doing All Right makes more sense in the movie.

The WWRY movie mix doesn't work on CD.

Live Aid is not complete and a missed opportunity (yes, I know it's not complete in the movie!).

Fat Bottomed Girls is awesome and makes me want a full Paris release.

The Fox fanfare makes me smile, but its 40 seconds long.

Everything else is recycled.

Did I buy it? Yes.
