Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

Product Description

Deluxe two CD edition including a bonus CD that contains six additional tracks. Digitally remastered edition of the British Pomp Rock band's 1975 album. A Night At The Opera, named after the Marx Bros film, is widely acclaimed as one of the greatest albums of all time. Exceptional on every level, musically, lyrically and artistically, Queen took the strongest elements of their previous two albums to make the ultimate winning combination. The most expensive album ever recorded at that time, it delivered Rock, Opera, Heavy Metal, romance, ballads, Pop, sci-fi Folk, music hall, Trad Jazz and even the National Anthem. The album contains perhaps the most famous Rock song of all time, 'Bohemian Rhapsody', which went on to spend 14 weeks at #1. Queen also recorded the first official Pop promo for 'Bohemian Rhapsody' as they were on tour and could not appear on Top of The Pops and this video paved the way for MTV and VH1. Island.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Masterpiece! June 22 2007
By Martin A Hogan TOP 500 REVIEWER
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars All-time classic Sept. 22 2011
Format:Audio CD
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!)

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic! June 9 2007
Format:DVD Audio
Great audio dynamics! Hearing it on DVD-A is like hearing it again for the first time. Mercury's voice is clear and close, and reminds you of what a great loss his passing is.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Night to Remember Aug. 25 2005
By jay
Format:Audio CD
This is it, folks! Rock has seen no finer! "A Night at The Opera" is an event, not the release of more "product". It showcased exactly what Queen could do with the best of their abilities. Ask yourself what other CD you can get "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "The Prophet's Song" on? Each song on this CD is special in its own way. If you are a serious music fan, this is a must! You're definately NOT a Queen fan if you do not own this. God Save The Queen!
