BTW, am sorry to hear that the Queen remastered vinyls did not come out well. Is that an opinion that is held by a lot of others who purchased them? It's really too bad - Queen deserves much more than that.....
It is yes, the general opinion seems to be that the whole release was botched badly.

What is even more galling is that they apparently took the 1998 remasters they did for CD and just plonked them onto vinyl, in 2010. And then in 2011, they remastered all the albums again for a brand new CD release, which makes me wonder why they didn't wait and do a proper vinyl master at the same time.

Anyway, I have not bought the 2011 remasters because I am tired of them rereleasing the same stuff over and over again. I would rather they just did some new music, solo albums, whatever. Just something new instead of trading off their legacy.

BTW, did you get the Jeff Ament solo album yet? I am eyeing the vinyl in the PJ shop, I haven't even heard the album yet, but will be picking it up soon.
