4 stars Queen's first is a strange album. "Keep Yourself Alive" was their first single and is a great song. "Great King Rat" is also good as well as "Modern Times Rock'n'Roll" and "Son and Daughter". "The Night Comes Down" has great vocals by Freddie and "Liar" sounds like early versions of "March of the Black Queen" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" although it falls far short of both. The early version of "Seven Seas of Rhye" which is a minute long instrumental is also pretty good.

The main problem with this album is that it doesn't sound much like Queen. Just the next year with "Queen II" their sound would change hugely. Very few songs ("The Night Comes Down", parts of "Liar") show what an amazing singer Freddie Mercury is. This is a great album, but don't get it expecting something sounding like "A Night at the Opera" or "A Day at the Races".
