While on their later records they blanded the theatrical sound perfectly with the hard rock, on this album it sounds like listening to a musical with guitars. Sometimes it even sounds like the guitars act like fucking sound effects. It’s certainly better than some other glam and hard rock acts of the time, but it comes scary close to the “reluctantly banging your head”-sound of AC/DC and Kiss.

From AAL2014
This is one of the best Queen albums. It shows that the band was much better when they took risks. The theatrical progressive rock here blows away any tame classic rock sounds this album has to offer.

Procession is a decent intro, but also aids well in allowing the album to flow with how it seamlessly ties into Father & Son. Both Father & Son and White Queen are highlights, the former showing a bit of Queen's heavier side. From there the next two songs are by far the worst for me. Not at all into Brian May's Some Day One Day, and Roger Taylor's The Loser In The End is highly forgettable to me other than the cool percussive intro. This part of the album just suffers from Lack-of-Freddie-itis.

Ogre Battle picks the album right back up again and begins a string of great and eclectic Queen compositions that doesn't let up until the album is over.

Maybe my 2nd favorite Queen album.

Not bad, but there are some songs that feel like filler.

One of their best. Never been a fan of their 80s and late 70s stuff, but the first several great albums hardly get any recognition...

I love how this album segues from one song to the next multiple times. The fantasy styled themes in the prog rock are also amazing.

Favorite album all-time

From Ben4
Of all the Queen albums, this one is probably the most cohesive from beginning to end, although it doesn't have any of the more well known songs. It's almost like a concept album. The production value is remarkable, and Brian May is one of the most underrated guitarists ever in my opinion. Overall, good but not great. Highlights include Father to Son, Ogre Battle, March of the Black Queen

From TheHutts
II is Queen's most pretentious and self-indulgent effort, but in this case that isn’t an insult – they’re playing to their strengths, and this album captures them at the height of their creativity.

I think this and Sheer Heart Attack are their best albums I lost a little bit of interest after that. Most of their albums are 75/100.

A superb album. The 2011 remaster is the best version out there.
