Prog Reviewer
1 stars Similar to Rush, Queen wears their Led Zep influence plainly on their sleeves on their debut album. This is basically a hard rock album with artistic touches painted throughout. Already we can hear shades of the trademark vocal harmonies that would soon define the band for decades to come.

The openers for both "sides" are catchy rockers "Keep Yourself Alive" and "Liar". Seven Seas of Rhye provides just a hint toward the art-rock greatness that was soon to come on their follow up album.

If you are a Queen fan or collector, you will certainly get around to adding this album to your collection. As a hard rock album, it contains important markers to point toward the band's further development. As a rock album of its era, this is a "4". But from a Prog perspective, this is more for Queen collectors and completists than it is for general Progressive Rock fans in my estimation, which is in alignment with the PA rating system at a score of "1".
