Product Description

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Oh man, THIS is gonna make me unpopular July 4 2004
By Alan
Format:Audio CD
While this album is consistently considered one of Queen's best, I personally don't enjoy much of it -- just my opinion folks, different strokes for different folks. I really enjoy "Ogre Battle", "The Fairy-Feller's Master Stroke" and "Nevermore", and a couple of the other tracks, but this one isn't one of my favorites. My apologies to all of my fellow Queen fans that love this album -- sorry. :( To each his/her own.

3.0 out of 5 stars The start of things to come Dec 20 2013
By Marcus Almighty TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If anyone is following my reviews, you may notice that purchase and listening preference is progressive rock/metal. Queen doesn't really fit that mould but they are a good band and this CD (Queen II) is the closest thing to a prog record in their catalogue. Even in its presentation with one side being the white side and the other being the black side was genius. May wrote the majority of the songs on side A and Mercury wrote all of side B including the hit Seven Seas of Rhyhe. Which put them on the map. The remaster was well done as the record sounds more puncher then the original and the bonus tracks are interesting. Especially the BBC session stuff. While this is not their best album (A night at the Opera is hands down) this should be in serious music collectors shelf's.

5.0 out of 5 stars A musical suite that just works Feb. 6 2012
Format:Audio CD
Though this album ain't the definitive creative statement of the band (A Night at the Opera would probably be), I find its cohesion better and would dare to say that from a musical point of view, wins over all the other Queen albums. The original vinyl B-side (from "Ogre Battle" onwards) is all Freddie Mercury's credited work, and feels like the Beatles' Abbey Road B-side: songs seamlessly merge into one another and create a grandiose tapestry. Though production's straightforwardness is no match for the almost over-engineered "A Night At The Opera", the composition's strengths are just enough to compensate. "The March Of The Black Queen" plants the seed for "Bohemian Rhapsody", with its multi-part structure and delightful vocal harmonies. A-side's "Father To Son" hints at power rock Queen will play later on on "Hammer To Fall", "Stone Cold Crazy" and "Now I'm Here".

Queen may have had radio hits in the eighties, but they really shone with Queen II.

5.0 out of 5 stars Queen Goes Tolkien! Aug. 23 2006
Format:Audio CD
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...

The disk was in relatively good shape. However I was expecting it to be new, and there was evidence that it had been used.

5.0 out of 5 stars The March June 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An album to remember June 10 2004
Format:Audio CD
Queen II is an amazing album of such musicallity, originality and fantasticallity (we are all allowed our own words here) that it could be THE best one- and I am one hell of a Queen fan.
At first it seems a little wierd- I was actually a little disapointed. However, after several listenings I was able to pick up on all that was amazing in this album. It is a fantasy story in music- something that no band could ever match. And to say that this was their second album makes it even more amazing.
I particularly like the Freddie Merqury string of songs, as they flow beatifully and offer something incredible to listen to- no one will ever record anything like 'The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke' again.
If you like to break away from what is conventional, by this album. It is a musical adventure that certainly persuaded me to buy Queen's very first album (aptly named 'Queeen').
Enjoy it
