1 stars i guess i really don't get it.

I bought this album with extremely high hopes, but got nothing i enjoyed (but am always amused by Bohemian Rhapsody)

My parents always said Queen was one of the greatest bands of all time, wrote incredible music, and had some of the best vocal performances. I disagree. The members of Queen are undoubtably creative and imaginary, but i just plain don't like the songs! None of the songs on this album caught my ears. A curse with lots of music is as an album progresses the music starts to repeat itself, talent aside, the same overall sound can get old if not played with enough. Maybe its just me... Freddy Mercury has a ridiculous singing range and really hits those notes, but the material does absolutely nothing for me.

I don't really have too many comments on this album except i can't get behind Queen's sound at all, the tempo changes and operatic vocals don't get to me as much as i thought they would.

I don't regret purchasing it, because i think its important to be aware of standards in music, but i just don't like their sound at all.
