4 stars This is my personal favorite from Queen. Here they deliver fun, complexity and freshness all in the right measure. I wouldn't call this "prog" in a strict sense, I'd rather call it "art hard- rock", or hard rock with a twist, if you like. And at the same time calling this hard rock is so restrictive...damn, they're just impossible to categorize!!! Anyway, in this album I like pretty much everything: Brighton Rock with its lenghty solo and surprise finale, Killer Queen with its pomp and melody, but pretty complex in structure (you wouldn't say by just listening, but try and play it...), Stone Cold Crazy which is a metal song (yes I said METAL), In the lap of the Gods which is an incredible leap into the operatic world with incredible vocal performances, Bring back that Leroy brown, another leap this time into early jazz world (charleston) and In the lap of the Gods revisited, possibly one of the greatest ballads ever by Mercury. The rest is so good but I won't bother you with descriptions. This album flows incredibly well, there is a variety of styles that's simply amazing, there's tons of irony, there's tons of melody, there is a very good production. Could you ask for more?...oh yes, if you would like to hear an incredible singer and an amazing guitar player, well, you have them.

Go buy it NOW!!!!
