Queen biography
Founded in London, UK in 1971 - Still active as of 2017

QUEEN are a four piece English Art rock band, formerly fronted by the flamboyant Freddie Mercury on vocals and piano, Brian May on guitar, Roger-Meddows-Taylor on drums and John Deacon on bass-guitar. Despite numerous rumours about Queen splitting up over the years, they never actually did, and the four remained together until the untimely death of Freddie Mercury on November 24th of 1991.

He had attended several gigs of Smile, being both a friend of Tim Staffel and Roger Taylor, and was interested in joining the band. Freddie already had a vision for the direction Smile had to take, introducing flamboyance, bombast, glamour and visual presentation to their music and live shows.

QUEEN

Shortly after becoming a member Freddie proposed the new name for the band which would remain with them. He also decided to change his surname to something more becoming of a rock star. Mercury, being the winged messenger of the gods was an audacious name to take, but it suited Freddie fine. After the search for a bass player came to an end with John Deacon, Queen was ready for success, but it still took them 2 years before they could create their debut album.

The 1970s were a time for excess, especially in rock music, and few bands came quite as close to epitomising this excess as Queen. Queen intended to be a larger than life rock group, the music ...

2 stars The things that always attracted me to Queens music was the variety and the originality of it all. No one could do all of the different genres like Queen could do, with Brian May's amazing guitar and Freddie Mercury's bombastic vocals. This was glam rock at it's best and everything that Queen tried to do was pure gold. Things started to slip a little on "The Game" but it was still salvageable. Then there was the big downturn in their sound in the synth heavy "Hot Space". "The Works" was supposed to be a return to form, and at this point, I would have been happy if they even approached the feeling of "The Game". But this album just doesn't quite reach even that status. The sound here is just too poppy for my taste.

There were two hits from this album; "Radio Ga Ga" which is famous only because it's easy to sing along with and the catchy guitar hook, and "I Want to Break Free" which I think is the closest they come to their true sound of their pre-"Game" sound. I do love the instrumental break, it's original and fresh, but that is the only place on this album that is a slight step above the mediocrity of this album. "Keep Passing the Open Windows" is also decent and could have squeaked by on one of their better albums. But overall, the album just doesn't have the spirit, the originality of those previous albums.

It doesn't make sense to do a track by track analysis of this album. There are a few rock anthems, a show tune or two, a few songs that sound like they are trying to copy previous songs, but there is a complete lack of originality. The variety that I used to love from this band is completely washed-out by trying to give each song a pop edge and staying away from the true feeling of each style of music. There are plenty of other genres of music they could have tried and there are plenty of ways they could have even built on the older styles they had in the past, but everything is weighed down by trying to make things accessible and radio friendly and trying in vain to recreate past successes.

No doubt that the members of this band are extremely talented. But, unfortunately, they were continuing to miss the mark by trying to be too accessible. It's just too much of a disappointment hearing mediocrity from a band that was capable of so much more.

Review by Luqueasaur

4 stars A masterpiece, but not for prog: 8/10

QUEEN debuted with an operatic glam-rock album, distinctively shifting the style on its successor to a much more eclectic presentation (while still retaining their unique style), but even with this commendable artistic juggling, it was only after SHEER HEART ATTACK the band reached stardom. It features the fierce return of glam rock fused with top notch hard rock and more focus on guitar and Freddie Mercury's lower vocal range (I find the latter sad; I LOVED Mercury's beautiful falsetto singing). In a certain way it's arguable that many of their musical inputs here are innovative enough to claim that even though they aren't de jure progressive, they are de facto; that is, although it doesn't sound progressive, contextually, it is. One who is faithful to prog only won't find this very dandy, even though SHEER HEART ATTACK is one of QUEEN's finest releases. But for anyone else who wants to listen to good music - and uses progressive rock as a general rule of thumb, but not as a strict Bushido code - this is an unavoidable gem. Not only it is a beacon of fine music, but also an important puzzle piece of QUEEN's transition from "progressive beasts" to "radio darlings".

So much so I find this to be QUEEN's tastiest release. You can find a lot of diversity throughout the tracks (there's some to acclaim on their libertine composition method, where each musician write their own stuff and then everyone just goes and plays it), which is a characteristic that really stands out.

Some featured tracks include the banquet of glamorous guitar distortion that Brian May feeds us on Brighton Rock; Killer Queen, world's dearest "sleazy Parisian" glam-pop (words of Paul Fowles, rock historian); the aggressive and sluggish Flick of the Wrist; the speed metal precursor Stone Cold Crazy; Misfire, which by the way is one of the few compositions by John Deacon; and the rockabilly-ish Bring Back that Leroy Brown.

Brian May is an astounding musician: not only he's truly creative but also one of the few that possesses a superb mastery of guitar distortion and harmonics, and a distinctive style - there's just an archetypical guitar pitch that makes everyone say, "hey, that's Brian May!". I love how he always finds a spot to put a small harmonics solo, which most of the time pairs with Mercury's singing. Roger Taylor is undervalued, assuming his spot-on quality drumming (and spectacular tenor backing vocals) gets few honorable mentions. Freddie Mercury's legendary proficiency as singer dismisses comments, his vocal diversity was and still is unpaired.

You know what's funny, by the way? SHEER HEART ATTACK's namesake song isn't featured here, but on NEWS OF THE WORLD, released about four years later, and it is - rather ironically - an allegory of its eponymous album. An Innuendo that QUEEN kept their roots and style quite firm throughout the years.

Review by The Jester

5 stars Queen's A Night at the Opera, took its name from the Marx Brothers movie with the same title. It was released on November 1975 and it was the most expensive album ever made. (At the time). It became an immediate success, reaching No.1 at the UK album charts, and stayed there for 4 weeks, while in the States reached at No.4. The musical media praised the album on many occasions, but because the style of this album was not clear, they categorized it from Heavy Metal up to Progressive Rock. Of course, the truth - as usual - lies in the middle? The band was at its best form in this album, with Brian May's guitar leading many songs, or just 'painting' small melodies and solos in others. Roger Taylor and John Deacon hold the background very tight, while Freddie Mercury gives some of the best performances of his career. The album's opens with a three-song medley, including the "noizy" Death on two legs followed by the operatic Lazing on a Sunday afternoon, and closing with the Hard Rock-like, Im in love with my car. The lead vocals on Lazing on a Sunday afternoon, was sung in the studio, and reproduced through headphones in a tin bucket elsewhere in the studio. A microphone picked up the sound from the bucket, which gives that hollow "megaphone" sound. The A-side - of the vinyl edition of course - continues with You're my best friend and 39, both mellow and melodic songs. Sweet Lady, is a Hard Rock-like, distortion-driven song, written by Brian May. Roger Taylor remembers it as the most difficult drumming part he ever recorded. The A-Side closes with Seaside Rendezvous, which was Freddie Mercury's compostion, but although it is a rather unique song, it doesn't add something more to the album. The B-Side opens with the 8-minute-long The Prophet's song, writen by Brian May. It is a heavy Love of my life, writen by Freddie Mercury for his girlfriend at the time. It is one of Queen's most covered songs and one of the most popular songs in their live shows. Good Company that comes next, is a May's composition, but is nothing special. And right after that, comes the album's highlight, which is not other than the extremely famous Bohemian Rhapsody. When it was released as a single climbed at No.1 of the UK singles chart, stayed there for 9 weeks, and within a year sold over 1.000.000 copies. After Freddie Mercury's death in 1991 it climbed again at No.1 and stayed there for another 5 weeks. It is considered to be one of the best songs of the 20th century. and dark track, with a strong Progressive Rock influence and challenging lead vocals. At over eight minutes in length, it was the longest song Queen ever recorded. Next, comes the sweet and mellow The album's closing track is a "rock" cover version of God save the Queen, the Brittish national anthem. Concluding this, the only thing I want to say is that, in my opinion, A Night at the Opera is a must- have for any Rock music fan's discography. 4.5 stars from me

3 stars Queen. A classic band with so many huge hits. I never wanted to buy an album. I saw a photo once of Edward Van Halen and Brian May together and I thought, "Why does Eddie like May so much?" Queen and Brain May to me were "Radio Ga-Ga", "Killer Queen", "Another One Bites the Dust", "We Are the Champions", etc. The music could be said to have power but there was nothing in the guitar playing that attracted my ears. Even after I learned that Queen were on PA, I still wasn't convinced.

Two things finally bent my curiosity. The first was the Wikipedia article on thrash metal that mentioned Queen's "Stone Cold Crazy" as an early example of speed metal. The second was a mention in the book "Lifting Shadows: The Authorized Biography of Dream Theater" of DT playing three songs from "Sheer Heart Attack" and Brian May being very impressed. I ordered the album!

"Killer Queen" and the rocker "Now I'm Here" are the only tracks I know, but it's the guitar exhibition of the opening track "Brighton Rock" - a song that sounds like a live version recorded in studio - that instantly justifies any adulation of Brian May's guitar skills. It's easy to understand how Eddie Van Halen was inspired, but also I can't help thinking that "Brighton Rock" must have also inspired Rik Emmett of Triumph when they recorded their second album "Rock and Roll Machine" because the guitar solo in the title track could easily have been an effort to pay tribute to May's work.

I find the rest of "Sheer Heart Attack" to be a mixed bag of tracks that clearly exhibit creative musical thinking and others that exhibit pure genius. Wikipedia states that the early Queen albums were a combination of prog and metal influences, and I don't doubt that much though I do agree with the "Sheer Heart Attack" Wiki article that says the band were heading more into conventional rock tracks. Some tracks feature heavy riffs and searing solos while others seem to have been inspired by musicals. Though all the tracks are short, there is no shortage of creativity. One of my favourites is the incredible "Bring Back that Leroy Brown". A quick-paced 1920's stomper, the song features ukulele-banjo, jangle piano and double bass and some great drum work by Roger Taylor, not to mention the fantastic vocal work. Easily a terrific entertaining number!

If there's any one big criticism it's the production. As this is their third album, it might not be a surprise to hear a weak production that doesn't justly bring out the sound of the music that the band obviously worked hard to record. But still I had imagined better sound quality.

Not all songs impress so deeply, but I am impressed enough that I am now eyeballing two more albums: "Queen II" and "A Night at the Opera". I expect these three will make a good trilogy.

Review by Kingsnake

5 stars This is a treat for Queen fans big and small, young and old.

We already had Queen at the Beeb for a few decades, wich combined two shows, the band recorded for BBC. Now finally Queen Productions collected and remastered all the songs they did for BBC (sans Mach of the Black Queen).

It's a wonderful collection of songs, where there are a few songs very rare (We Will Rock You (fast) and What a Fool I've Been). Mostly the band plays over the same backing tracks used for the studio-albums. So in fact some songs sound more like a different studio-version, than an actual live version.

The latter songs from (Queen II up to News at the World) sound more live, and have alternate versions of well known songs. All in all, this is a must-have. The 2cd and 3lp version contain all the BBC-recordings, whereas the boxset contains radio-interviews and some live-shows.

Thanks fo releasing this, and a must have for any Queen fan and a musthave for any serious rockfan.

3 stars The eighties also made QUEEN change their musical style. Maybe their musical style started to change with their "The Game" album from 1980, becoming more simple, less elaborated, and less influenced by Progressive Rock music.

For the other part, I never have been a fan of DAVID BOWIE's music. I never have liked Glam Rock bands or "Theatrical music" very much. BOWIE was a "musical chameleon", as many people considers him. He played a lot of musical styles in his life, but for me his "personal and musical essence" was always very present, even with the constant changes of looks. So, he has a lot of fans. Not me, but I have to say that he had a very good voice and he was a very good singer. He also was an innovator in the kind of music that he liked, and I think that he was a very big influence in the development and in the music of a lot of artists like BRYAN FERRY, ROXY MUSIC, ALICE COOPER (maybe there were mutual influences), PETER GABRIEL, and others on which the visual and theatrical elements were brought to their music. The influences of looks and visual elements. How to impress audiences with visual elements and looks during the concerts. I'm not a fan of all these things. Maybe they are important for some people, but I prefer music, not theatre or looks or fashions.

I listened to the "Under Pressure" song several times through the years. I even watched to the video of the song a lot of time ago. I like the song and the video. I think that it was very good collaboration between BOWIE and QUEEN, with a very good arrangement, lyrics and interpretation. BOWIE and FREDDIE MERCURY really worked very well as singers, with their voices sounding very well together. The song also has a very characteristic bass riff which has been sampled or used by some Rap music artists."Under Pressure" is a very good song which still is played in the radio.

The Side "B" of this single has a song called "Soul Brother", also maybe recorded during the recording sessions for their "Hot Space" album from 1982. It really sounds like a Soul music / Blues song, with even Mercury sounding a bit like trying to imitate some Soul singers. It is also a good song, which was included as a bonus track in the re-issued "Hot Space" album some years ago.

Review by Glubluk

3 stars I don't know why really, but the other day I felt a pressing need to re-listen and re-view this album. As much as I do often have a stance on a particular album that differs from the common consensus to a greater or lesser extent, in the case of 'Hot Space' I won't try to hail it as a masterpiece. No, I generally agree that this is one of the lowest points in Queen's career (followed by 'Flash Gordon' and 'A Kind of Magic'), but the reasons might lie in places other than those usually quoted.

Let's try an untypical review format here, a track-by-track analysis of what is wrong with each of them:

1. Staying Power ' strangely enough, nothing much is wrong. The track achieves its objective perfectly: it's a funk-inspired, horn-heavy bouncer that honestly is quite effective. Of course, the lyrics are dumb, the drum machines artificial, and Brian May's guitar an afterthought, but as there is the live version from 'Queen on Fire' that serves as an excellent alternative for those who wish this song to rock (and it does), it's easier to accept is in its actual form. 2. Dancer ' the most un-May track ever of those he penned. What does not work here is the unexciting vocal melody and the arrangement that cannot decide whether to rock or to groove. As it is, it does neither, sounding rather clumsy ad overlong (a problem that befalls most tracks here). 3. Back Chat ' of all the dance/funk experiments by Queen (including Another One Bites the Dust), this one is by far the best in my opinion (Dragon Attack being almost as good). Everything here just clicks and all the non-rock elements, like the synths and the hi-hat, actually enhance the song. 4. Body Language ' the favourite object of derision, mainly for its explicitly sexual nature. Well, remember Get Down, Make Love? The same kind of stuff, so I never understood the general confusion, but Body Language is actually the better one for the simple reason that it has an absolutely killer (synth) bass line. Of course the lyrics and the vocal delivery are dumb beyond belief, but think of it: Queen always put those off-beat, quirky tracks on their albums, and Body Language is nothing but yet another Seaside Randezvous or Bring Back That Leroy Brown, only intentionally dumbed-down and too long (and this time they flirt headlong with a genre not generally considered worthy). 5. Action This Day ' well, this is where the real problem with 'Hot Space' starts. I actually prefer well-done 'black' tunes than clumsy, strangely plodding 'rockers'. Let's face it, the chorus is all right, but the verses are plain awful. The arrangement is also too unfocused to work. 6. Put Out the Fire ' an average guitar-based track (comparable to Sweet Lady). Not Queen's greatest song, but I enjoy it. 7. Life Is Real (Song for Lennon) ' my favourite 'Hot Space' song. Aside from the oddness of the very idea of Mercury's tribute to Lennon, this is a a beautiful, well-sung ballad. 8. Calling All Girls ' see Action This Day, exactly the same issues here. Mr Taylor, whose songs on Queen albums I usually find enjoyable, misses the mark completely on 'Hot Space' 9. Las Palabras de Amor (The Words of Love) ' second best song on the album. I really like it, but still there are two problems: the title sung in different languages (I don't know, maybe it's just me, but I find this idea dumber even than Body Language lyrics). Second, some synth embellishments don't work for me. All in all, these are minor issues, and the song is among Queen's best ballads. 10. Cool Cat ' I used to hate this track. Not anymore, as somehow I started to really appreciate the laid-back atmosphere and the understated arrangement. The falsetto vocals still grate a bit, but I guess they just fit the mood. 11. Under Pressure ' a good song that never resonated with me. Nothing particular to fault, though.

So what's the verdict? In my very personal opinion the public focused so much on the flirt with disco that they overlooked the fact that the problem lies mostly with how ineffective the other facet of the album is: there are hardly any good rock ideas here. The dance tracks are hit or miss, but can work surprisingly well, and the ballads are excellent. Plus Mercury is at the peak of his vocal powers and the synths are a generation behind the truly offensive kinds that would appear later in the 80's (and on 'The Works'). Apparently, Queen could delve into a variety of genres, provided they were of the respectable kind ' this combined with 'No Synthesizers' backfiring doomed a perfectly enjoyable album.

4 stars Sheer Heart Attack is a strong album in a great band's library that shows has all the right combination of Queen's sound: rousing guitar work by May, memorable vocals by Freddie Mercury, creative song writing, and lots of variety to enjoy. It's not a prog album like it's predecessor, though it is more creative than consistently enjoyable than some of the albums that follow. It moves along at a brisk pace, cranking out a steady of rotation of driving hard rock, playful pop, and lush balladry. Sheer Heart Attack doesn't have any of the band's truly iconic songs ("Killer Queen" almost being an exception, but it doesn't pack the punch of, say, "Bohemian Rhapsody"), but the album remains great from start to finish, and is a perfect way to check out the band's library beyond their greatest hits.

3 stars In reading the reviews of Queen's well-regarded Night at the Opera one can see many different opinions on whether this album is "prog," vaudeville, classic rock, or '70's pop-rock. The answer is that the album is a little bit of all of those. It's an enjoyable blend of Queen's bouncy throwbacks, hard hitting arena-rock, artistic extravagance, and flamboyant style. While I think the album is very over rated here on Prog Archives, Night at the Opera has some real gems that rightfully help it stand out among the rest of Queen's offerings, even if the album as a whole isn't really a master piece.

"Death on Two Legs" is a creative and noisy hard rock opener with lots of style that makes it easy to imagine Mercury strutting around in a neckerchief and phallic microphone baton singing his heart out. Same goes for "Sweet Lady," one of the forgotten Queen gems that sounds great but won't make it into the Greatest Hits. "I'm in Love with My Car" has appealing instrumentals but eye-rolling lyrics, making it a mixed bag. These are the only classic-rock songs to be heard, and the band plays them well and energetically.

Scattered throughout this album are four (!) playful and folksy songs that end up being homages to vintage sounds of earlier days (think barbershop). They're well produced, often with layers of vocal overdubs and a variety of guitar sounds; however, with the notable exception of "'39" they're little more than diversions that'll get your toe-tapping for two minutes while you're waiting for something more interesting to come up. Bouncy, fun, and forgettable.

"'39" is deserves talking about though. This is a warm acoustic ballad with an irresistible feel and lead vocals by May, whose voice fits very well here. The story and lyrics are beautiful, as is the lush production of the song. A standout track.

"The Prophet's Song" is the other big song here. It's a heavy, plodding, and dramatic song that, although qualifying as prog in the sense that its: A) long, B) weird, and C) ambitious, isn't all it's cracked up to be. It feels like an experiment that sort of misfires. The 2.5 minutes of experimental vocal overdubs haven't aged well, and May's guitar soloing doesn't impress. It's not bad, just not amazing.

What is amazing, however, is "Bohemian Rhapsody." It's a rare example of artistic excess that has all the right elements to make it a mega-hit and classic-rock staple. This song is over played and well known, and deserves it.

So in the end a very enjoyable experience. Certainly recommended for fans of the band or those thinking about exploring Queen beyond "Greatest Hits". I'm close to giving Night at the Opera 4-stars, but it's inconsistency in instrumental work and song writing makes it fit better as a good but not essential release. However, those who purchased this album just for "Bohemian Rhapsody" should find plenty more to enjoy.

3 stars I had never heard Hot Space on its entirely until recently. See, I always liked Queen, but Queen was never a favorite band. Hot Space got such bad reception when it was released I never bothered to listen to it at the time. Besides, the video Body Language did get showed on TV and I didnt´like it at all, so why bother? However, upon reading Queen´s biography. Mark Blake´s Is This The Real Life, the Untold Story of..., I got curious. When I heard it I was surprised of how different it was and at the same how good some of the tracks really were. I can understand the hatred it caused on several fans, even today. That was not the same band their audience was expecting to find. The opener Straying Power, with its disco beats and funk brass arrangements sounds almost like the band was really provoking their fans. However, as much as you can criticize the style they embraced, there is some good stuff to find here (if you´re open minded, of course).

Actually Hot Space was ahead of its time. The mixture of rock, funk and disco was something rarely, if ever, heard of until then. It´s little surprise that Michael Jackson, a big fan of Queen, always credit HS as a major influence on his classic Thriller album he released almost an year later. In a way, this is Queen´s most experimental and bold move ever, and, in a way, quite progressive on its own. If the move was a good one it´s another story entirely. But in hindsight I can enjoy much of the tracks here: Back Chat is a fine funk tune with great guitar lines, the more traditional Las Palabras de Amor is a good homage to their latin american fans, while Life Is Real is one of the best tributes to John Lennon. Hot Space was remarkable also in terms of instrumentation: the first when all for members played synthesizers and the first to feature electronic drums on some tracks. In fact I found something to enjoy in almost every song here. Of course, this was a safe listening because I knew they would eventually drop the disco/funk bits from the next album on. They even give some nods to the new wave movement in Europe (Roger Taylors Action This Day is the obvious example).

So, in the end, Hot Space is an interesting experiment. And, as much as it got their worst reviews and sales in a long time, it has its good side. I the words of Brian May (who was the least appreciative of the new direction) : Hot Space wasn´t easy, but I´ll stand by it. It got us out of a rut and into a new place".

Definitely HS is mot one of Queen´s best works, but it has its merits. It´s an interesting and daring move. Few band would risk as much. And fewer still would come back as gloriously as they did on their follow up. You have to accept it: Queen was talented and unique. Love them or hate them. And Hot Space, with all its faults still shines in places after all those years. My remastered edition has a couple of bonus live version tracks recorded during the tour promoting the album. They sound much heavier and powerful than on record. Nice addition. Rating: good, but non-essential. Three stars.

Thanks to Proglover for the artist addition. and to Quinino for the last updates
