From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Hello, this is my first review! I am a regular visitor of the site and finaly I have made the decision of write something, so, you have to understand that it has to be a very sepcial one, my favorite album from my favorite band: Queen II. For some people the authentic master piece of the Queen camp, it is one of the Queen albums that could be defined as progressive music, it has a lot of prog elements, the way the music is written, the quality of the compsition, Freddie´s voice is incredible and concept of the white and dark side of Queen is unique. Primitive Queen is what you can find here, "White Queen" and "The March of the Black Queen" are of course the main highlights of the album. The 2011 remaster has a beautiful version of White Queen (As It Brgan) (live at the Hammersmith Odeon in 1975), for me, this is a very nice example of what Queen would become, Brian May´s solo is just incredible and some how reminds me that true guitar heroes are the ones that play the instrument whit passion and feeling the music (David Gilmour is another excellent example).

Queen II is a real Rock Gem, an album that influenced a lot of the most respected musicians in the rock scene (not necessarily main stream) including Billy Corgan (Smashing Pumpkins), Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon), Cristopher Jhonson (Therion) among others. (I choose these because I also love their music). So, if you think Queen is just "Radio Ga Ga"," We are The champions" or "we will rock you" you have to listen to this album and you will find what Queen were capable of during the early 70´s!
