3 stars It's a good debut album even though most of the music produced are still raw but it demonstrates the band's original approach in music making. Overall it's a straight hard rock album. It stats off with an energetic tune "Keep Yourself Alive" (3:47) with Brian May's unique guitar rhythm and solo. It flows nicely to second track "Doing All Right" (4:09) which showcases the roots of Queen sounds. "Great King Rat" (5:43) is kicking with its powerful vocal and raw guitar solo and rhythm. The song is very energetic and it has fast tempo and many breaks / changes. "My Fairy King" (4:08) demonstrates Freddie's high register vocal notes, excellent choirs and nice piano work. Brian May's guitar effects provide good textures for the music. "Liar" (6:25) was my favorite when I first listened to this album because I liked the way the song flew from opening to end. It's really an excellent rock track, I would say. "The Night Comes Down" (4:23) is another excellent track with blues touch and wonderful guitar work. Again, Freddie's voice is high.

From this debut album one can see how the band sounded like at their beginning career. The band really took-off when "A Night At The Opera" album was released.

Gatot | 3/5 |
