Product Description

Deluxe two CD edition includes a bonus CD containing five additional tracks. Digitally remastered edition of the British Pomp Rock band's 1974 sophomore album. Queen II is the real beginning of Queen as we know it. It's the first time we hear the multi layered overdubs, the harmonies, the varied musical styles (ballads, Folk, Blues, Metal, Pop and Rock, it's all there). It also includes their first hit single 'Seven Seas of Rhye', which led to the first of many iconic performances on Top of the Pops. The band recorded Queen II in just over a month in 1973 ahead of its release in 1974. The album cover was shot by legendary photographer Mick Rock and inspired by a Marlene Dietrich portrait. The image was later brought to life in the revolutionary 'Bohemian Rhapsody' video. --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

I'd like to think this one, Queen's second album, as their ultimate concept-album, their fantasy-filled Tolkien-esque piece of art.

Because, indeed art this is.
This is one of my absolute favourites by anyone. The whole album is very coherent and stylish. Progrock in it's finest form.

Only song stepping out a bit of their fantasyworld here is Roger's Loser In The End, but this too can be seen as a part of album's story: sons leaving their homes and mothers and going to foreign lands to fulfill their destiny.

Of course everyone looks at this album in their own way, but to me at least this tells a story of a world and lands where generations change and battles have to be fought to keep the peace. In the end all is well again.
Similarities towards to the Lord Of The Rings, as I see it.

My absolute favourite from this album is Nevermore, short and sweet. Very beautiful, and I wish it were at least three minutes longer. So good.

I absolutely recommend this album to everyone who want to take a trip to fantasyland '70s style. And of course to all you fellow-Queen-fans out there.

I'd wish they'd publish a collectors edition of this album. Maybe A Night At the Opera style with a DVD?
Because from what I've heard of the white side (Brian/Roger) and black side (Freddie) in the original vinyl release, I'd like to see the vinyl replica edition of that. They could easily reproduce the disc itself one side white and other black. With extented liner notes, naturally.
Maybe some day, one day...

I have always thought that "A Night at the Opera" is Queen's best album but after hearing this album my opinion has changed. This is definitely Queen's best!!!
The intro "Procession" is a brilliant start for "Father to Son" which is a great track. Mercury sings very good on this track! "White Queen" is also a good although it is a little bit peaceful. "Some Day One Day" is quite a relaxing track. "The Loser in the End" is quite a heavy track to listen to but after listening it many times it really opened to me. "The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke" is a very good also. "Nevermore" is a short track. "Ogre Battle" is a great track, one of teh best tracks ever.
The best is yet to come. "The March of the Black Queen", "Funny How Love Is" and "Seven Seas Of Rhye" are the best tracks in this album. Especially "Funny How Love Is" has hit me very good. It is so a relaxing track.

As a recent discoverer of Queen, I've noticed that one of the greatest things about them is their ability to make albums with such a wide range of sounds. If you like hard rock, soft rock, or just love to sing along, you really can't go wrong here.
I don't agree that this album has any bad songs and I don't agree that there is any part which stands out from any other. As a whole work it's very consistent and the beginning is as good as the end.
As usual, the vocals are just phenomenal here. You get the amazing Freddie Mercury's versatile voice, the band's excellent harmonizing segments and you have "Loser in the End" which sounds like a Pink Floyd song. I actually am not sure which member it is that sings like this, but it's a great rock voice which could have carried a band by itself!
Overall, if you're a Queen fan, a classic rock fan, or just have an open mind with music, this album shouldn't disappoint. Just rememeber, Queen are often a better ALBUM band than they are a SINGLES band. And their singles alone are great to begin with. :-)

i began buying all of queen's albums after my purchase of 1984's brilliant the works album. i now have them all and they are all remastered so the music is even clearer. i do not like to compare albums but if i had to take only 1 queen album with me on holiday away from my stereo at home then queen 2 would be my pick. this album review will be based on the actual music and not who freddie was sleeping with! real queen fans couldn't give a toss who the great man bedded and are more interested with what he and his fellow bandmates got up to in the stereo. this album is a sonic masterpiece so here is what i think of it. procession kicks off proceedings which leads us to father to son which i think is tinged in wartime subject matter. a very heavy track with some trademark brian may guitar. overall a very powerful song at over 6 minutes if i remember rightly. white queen as it began follows which contains vocals at the usual high queen standard. i will miss commenting on some day 1 day and the loser in the end, not because they are poor songs but because i want to get to the triumvarate of brilliance. queen fans will know what i am talking about. ogre battle, the fairy fellers masterstroke and nevermore. no amount of words can express the sheer quality of these 3 tracks, especially the last 2. you have to hear them for yourself. the march of the black queen is next which is yet another powerful 6 minute song. funny how love is and the 7 seas of rhye close the album which is 1 of the best albums i have at home by any artist. a must have for any music lover. 9 stars out of 5 at the very least!
