EDITORS’ NOTES

Upon its 1975 release, A Night at the Opera was, reportedly, the most expensive album ever recorded. Fortunately, Queen got their money's worth—and then some. Their crowning achievement, this fearlessly eclectic album takes equal inspiration from heavy metal and '20s music hall on tracks like "I'm in Love with My Car" and "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon,” respectively. And that's before the staggering hard rock operetta "Bohemian Rhapsody," a cracked masterpiece that no other band could’ve pulled off.

Great Album

This album brought us Bohemian Rhapsody, a classic definitely but there are also some criminally underrated songs on this album, such as Death On Two Legs, '39, Seaside Rendezvous and The Prophet Song. Overall one of Queen's best albums.

Greatest Album Of All Time.

This album consists of some very good songs, but the standout is Bohemian Rhapsody. It is undoubtedly the greatest song of all time, and nothing will ever come close to it.
Thank you Queen.

Queen's Sgt Pepper

Every band has a Sgt Pepper in them, The Who with Tommy, The Stones with Beggar's Banquet, Zep IV and Queen's A Night At the Opera. Queen keeps up what Sheer Heart Attack started, making an eclectic album, covering more styles of music than your typical rock band. Here Queen takes it up to 1000. The song writing, the production and the performaces are breath taking. They keep their foot in the hard rock/prog rock camp with the Prophet's Song, Death on Two Legs, and the glam rock with styles of Sweet Lady, I'm In Love With My Car, but then the flip things with 39, Seaside Rondevuz, Good Company etc... and what can be said about You're my Best Firend and Bohemian Rhapsody. Casual fans should get this album and dig into the albums and look beyond the GHs.
