Nothing succeeds like excess--at least that's the case with Queen's breakthrough classic, A Night at the Opera. On one level, the title is a reference to the band's operatic pretensions, best in evidence here on the classic "Bohemian Rhapsody," which was championed by headbangers a generation before being revived by the Wayne's World set. Of course, A Night at the Opera was also the title of a Marx Brothers movie, and the reference isn't lost on Queen, who seldom scaled the heights of pomprock without a knowing wink. The album is remembered for its meticulously produced bombast, but the truth is that there's a wide variety of material here, from the gorgeous piano-based "You're My Best Friend" and the McCartneyesque "39" to the music-hall-style "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon" and the pedal-to-the-metal rockers "Death on Two Legs" and "I'm in Love with My Car." A Night at the Opera is viewed by most as the quintessential Queen album, and justifiably so. --Daniel Durchholz

Format: Audio CD
It's been well over thirty years since this album came out and I finally bought it. I've been missing out on a lot of fantastic music. This album is extraordinary in its own merit, and I finally understand what "Queen" really was all about - the entire experience! Sure, "You're My Best Friend" was a really nice song and "Bohemian Rhapsody" defined an entire generation, but hearing it as it was pieced together in one collage of a musical experience and you'll understand what the big fuss is all about. Freddie Mercury's vocals are astounding. There simply is no `best' song on this album. Every song is its own masterpiece, but I am partial to the anthemic, "'39". God Save the Queen!

From start to finish, this is one of those all-time classics in rock history. Most people will know at least "Bohemian Rhapsody" but there is so much more to Queen than that song. "Death on Two Legs" has to be their angriest song of all time .. yet still contains the trademark Queen melodies and vocals. Immediately following is the old-time flavourings of "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon". You can almost imagine Freddie prancing around in tux, tails, and top hat while performing. It also contains the hit "You're My Best Friend", and the sci-fi folk song "'39". "The Prophet" is a long song (I believe it is their longest ever), containing a rather long a cappella section with many echo effects and multi-layered vocals. Of course the classic "Bohemian Rhapsody" is there in all its splendour. The album closes with Brian May's excellent guitar work on "God Save the Queen" (which they used to close their concerts from '76 onwards). A great album, and one that you should add to your collection!

(The sound quality of the 2011 remastered version definitely adds to your enjoyment!)

Queen's fourth album A Night at the Opera was released in December of 1975. The album was the band's sink or swim album, if it flopped it would have been the end of Queen. Here is a track-by-track summary of the album. Death on Two Legs(Dedicated to...) kicks off the album in a hard rocking manner which was frontman Freddie Mercury's ode to an ex-management company whom treated the band like dirt. The vaudevillian sounding Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon follows and is great with its 1930s-ish sound and harmonized heavy metal guitar solo at the end is amazing. Drummer Roger Taylor's ode to the automobile I'm In Love With My Car follows and is a kick-ass rocker sung by Roger. The ballad You're My Best Friend follows and is a nice song written by bassist John Deacon for his wife Veronica(whom he is still married to today) and was a US Top 20 hit in the summer of 1976 peaking at #16. I love the melodies and harmony parts. Guitarist Brian May's '39 is a great skiffle (folk) song with Brian singing. The song is Queen's sci-fi song about a man who goes time travelling for a hundred years but comes back one year older. Musically sounds like an outtake from either The Beatles' Rubber Soul or a Kingston Trio album. Brian writes the next track, the rocker Sweet Lady which is a great hard rock track. Freddie's vaudevillian sounding Seaside Rendezvous ends the first half. Got to love those voice orhestrations from Roger and Freddie imitating horns. Brian's epic The Prophet's Song kicks off the second half in epic style and all I can say is WOW! The song was written while Brian was sick with the curable form of hepatitis and an ulcer. It's a great epic, superb vocals. Especially with Freddie's vocal solo which was pure genius. Freddie's Love of My Life follows and is a great song about a breakup.Read more ›
