A lovingly thorough dissection of every album and every song ever released by the beloved rock group, Queen All the Songsfollows Freddie, Brian, Roger, and John from their self-titled debut in 1973 through the untimely passing of Freddie, all the way up to their latest releases and the Oscar-winning film, Bohemian Rhapsody.
