Great example of Queen's classic rock sound. The use of pianos on this album is very smart. I recommend The Fairy Teller's Master-Stroke and Ogre Battle for some great songs to listen to anytime.
One of Queens Best Albums
I love this album. Actually Queen sounded amazing from their first effort, Liar is a favorite. This album is more progressive rock, lots of Brian’s guitar, which I’m certain he loves, versus some of their ‘80s efforts. Freddie’s voice sounds amazingly strong. I’ve read professional reviews that claim his voice isn’t strong enough, I totally disagree. Father to Son I like. I love March of the Black Queen. Nevermore I've always liked. I LOVE Seven Seas of Rye. I always wondered where Freddie came up with such interesting lyrics and I go back to his journeys from Zanzibar to boarding school in India-a two month trip by ship at age 7 by himself. He revisits some similar lyrics in one of my favorite tracks “Lilies of the Valley” I think on Sheer Heart Attack”.
It’s hard to pick a favorite album, I have my favorite songs starting with Queen I all the way to Innuendo and Made in Heaven. But for a second album it’s great. Highly recommend.

Didn't like this one Not so much as the other albums just because this one is too polished. It sounds like queen overdosed on overdub

This album is, in my opinion, Queen's best work! Almost every song on this album is excellent. Notice how I said almost, since the song Loser in the End is, in my opinion, a very weak song. But masterpieces like The March of the Black Queen, The Fairy-Feller's Master Stroke, Father to Son, and many more make up for it. With an amazing mix of progressive rock and hard rock, this album is a masterpiece.

Seven seas of rye is the only good one. I have never heard something so foul sounding in my entire life. Come one queen, you could have done better. I recommend a day at the races. In that album u have some good music
March of the Black Queen is by far one of Queen's best songs, and this is one of their best albums!
Queen's Best Work!!
Although not critically acclaimed I consider this Queen's best work! First heard this album back in 1974 in my biology class where our very hip teacher let students bring in albums to play during our dissection labs (I heard Jethro Tull's Aqualung for the first time there too). It was played on an old dinky mono record player but sounded great! Saw them live in 1976 at the Santa Monica Auditorium and it was one of the best concerts I've ever attended. Freddy Mercury was at his full "glam" best with 4 costume changes and encores. This album defined progressive rock for me!
Few good ones
This is not queen's best albums but a few good songs

This album is incredibly groundbreaking, was my favorite album back when I first bought it, and remains my favorite to this day. Incredibly touching and powerful. To me one of the best albums of all time. The overdubs are meticulous and the band sounds beautiful. Just exquisite. And this is coming from a fourteen year old girl who dreams of a rock career. yeah. But it. Inspirational.
