Format: Audio CD
Alongside the larger-than-life A Night At The Opera this Queen's debutalbum was my first album by them.

OK, this had to grow on me. Still, liked Keep Yourself Alive from the word go, for example.

The production of this album is quite raw and rough, but in a good way. From Queen II on their sound will be more polished and the band is perhaps more on the form they are known for.

If this were you're very first exposure to Queen, you might get the wrong idea about thre band, not the whole picture, anyway.

That being said, back in 1973 this was the introduction of Queen to the whole wide world!

If you are a fan of '70s rock and the unpolished sound of it, you should give this a spin whether you're thoughts of Queen might be.

If you want to get seriously into Queen and feel adventerous, you too could add this album in your shoppingcart ASAP.

Because this is a good album. Songs to listen and take note especially are: rocking Keep Yourself Alive, beautiful Doing All Right, interesting My Fairy King (BoRhap-style operatic bits done rough!), fabulous Liar, among others.

You might also want to take note of the early instrumental version of Seven Seas Of Rhye, which closes this piece of early Queen.

Listen to the skills of all the Queen -guys: Freddie's vocals, Brian's guitar, John's bass and Roger's drums (Roger also has lead vocal on one of the songs): excellent!

Recommended, five stars all the way. Queen indeed was very fine right from the start!

It's 1973 and I'm walking into Sam the Record Man ( the now defunct Ontario record store chain ), hearing the first opening riff of "keep Yourself Alive" and immediately wondering'who the hell is this coming through the speakers!!!???'. I bought the LP right then are there.
Queen came out of left field with an albumn that I believe still stands the test of time and is a testament to who they were/are as musicians and where they took their music in the years to come. There is an accurate song-by-song review by another reviewer that is dead on, so I won't repeat.
Now 55 years old and I still get the 'air guitar' out to play along to this one. Regardless of which 'phase' of Queen you prefer, guaranteed you will enjoy the music for what it represented back in 1973. At the time it was thrown in under the "glam rock" category, but to my ears, it just ROCKS period!! Don't hesitate to buy it - you'll be musically richer for it.

there are tracks like "Keep Yourself Alive", "Great King Rat", "My Fairy King", "Liar", and "Jesus". I really like this Queen album because it's so "innocent". This album demonstrate their raw material. If you loved Queen II, you will probably like this one too!

Queen's first album starts the band's catalog off on the right track. Very good songs and very consistent -- it's an album I can play from beginning to end without wanting to skip a track. I haven't actually sat down and rated all of their albums, but I'd guess that this would probably be in my top 5. Recommended.

This, of course, was the first album by Queen. Unlike all of their subsequent albums, this one had no hit songs. The version of "Seven Seas of Rhye" is not the hit version, but rather an earlier instrumental version. The album is good, but leans a bit too much towards prog rock for my taste. "Keep Yourself Alive" is the best song here, but there are some other good ones. As for the bonus tracks, "Mad the Swine" is a previously unreleased song from the same recording sessions. There is an undated different version of "Keep Yourself Alive". And there is a useless remix of "Liar" that hardly sounds different from the normal version. Queen fans will want to get this CD, along with all their other CDs.
