5 stars Queen was the first band that REALLY made myself get interested in music. As soon as I started to listen to their songs I wanted to be Brian May so bad.

One particular day I went to the Big Rock Gallery in São Paulo, Brazil with my cousin and started to look for their oldest album available. It was a tough task, all the stores had only their greatest hits, but eventually I found out Queen II (1974), I had to pay a higher price for it, but, it was worth it! II (1974) turned out to be one of my favorite albums of the band. It was so bold, especially compared with their first album. It was also more Proggy, full of concepts, stories and GREAT musicianship. The band was aiming high by that time and all of them were in their primes. Indeed II (1974) was the only 'Prog' album Queen ever recorded (though they have influences in every single album). Towards the end of the same year they released Sheer Heart Attack (1974) that was going away from the Prog scene. And that's one more thing that makes this album so great and unique!
