Really good album. Freddie's vocals and Brian's guitar playing make every song worthwhile.

Aqui o Queen resumiu todas as suas características principais. A voz de Fred, a guitarra progressiva e toda a dramaticidade.

There were a couple of hints on the first two albums of how great Queen was going to be. Namely "Keep yourself Alive" and "Nevermore" When The Sheer Heart Attack album came out it was Queen finally mastering their style and sound. From heavy to campy, theres not a bad song on the record. My favorite release by them.

From Brad1770 03/18/2018 09:01
I've always dismissed Queen as nothing more than an FM Radio singles band and as such this was my 1st listen to an actual Queen album ( two listens actually ) and it was pretty good ...enough to definitely change my Queen perception

What I liked ?
Brighton Rock , Killer Queen , Stone Cold Crazy , She Makes Me and In The Lap Of The Gods Revisited

What I didn't dig ?
Bring Back Leroy Brown , Flick of The Wrist & Now I'm Here

And I can now understand 100% The Muse / Queen comparisons

It makes me so sad that this album is not in the top 500! Probably one of my favourite albums of all time. Queen is like Zeppelin if they had a sense of humour.

Highly underrated album. Brighton Rock has one of the best guitar solos ever, Killer Queen has THE best guitar tone ever, and the other songs are very good. Especially the little medley near the beginning.

Indulgent guitar work from Brian May on Brighton Rock, some great guitar diving. Killer Queen is my favourite track on the album. Recently bought the lp new on red vinyl, excellent on good audio kit. Could never understand why Queen were so against synths on their early albums as they used effects to process their guitars, drums, vocals and keyboard parts.
