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.

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.

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.

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...

Quuen 2 is perhaps one of the greatest rock albums of its day. Prog fans take note: before the operatic playful tunes, before the commercialism, Queen flat out astounded with grandiose rock laden with stunning instrumentalism, layered vocals and guitars, heavy riffs, and simply wonderful songwriting displays. This is an album for the ages. It will astound on the first listen as much as on the 100th. The songs are heavy, they are grandiose, layered with the most perfect allotment of instruments suiting each piece perfectly.
The album opens up with Procession, and multi-layered guitar orchestration from Brian May that sounds as though we're about to embark on a mystical, musical journey. 2 minutes later, we're riding the heavy guitar riffs of Father To Son, as Freddie tells us a story suitable for any Fantasy-Adventure. White Queen, Some Day-One Day, and Loser In The End round out 'Side White' with a mellow acoustic guitar driven track, a moody hard rock piece, and an all-out guitar-let-loose rocker with Roger Taylor on vocal.
Side Black tells us another epic adventure of Ogres, Fairies, Queens, Kings, Love, and the Seven Seas Of Rhye. Ogre Battle is a hard-rocking prog-like tune that is simply the best heavy metal of its day. The Fairy-Feller's Master Stroke is perhaps the best song on the album, and the most original and adventurous song you're likely to hear in your lifetime. Trust me on this. March of the Black Queen is a 7-minute operatic piece that is really a Bohemian Rhapsody in the making (only better, if you ask this reveiwer). Funny How Love Is takes the listener into more acoustic driven delight, and then, the Seven Seas Of Rhye finishes what began on the first Queen album.
Did I mention that I like the music on this CD? Oh yeah, it's a must have for anyone that appreciates talent, and great songs. Queen made some amazing music in ther days. This might very well be their best.
