5 stars A rock masterpiece, a prog masterpiece, and musical masterpiece.

For a band that never really took themselves seriously, they put out some seriously good music. This is the pinnacle of their career.

Maybe the most diverse rock album ever recorded, A Night At The Opera takes you on a trip to every side of the rock spectrum. There's biting hard rock (Death On Two Legs; I'm In Love With My Car; Sweet Lady), extremely well-written pop-rock (You're My Best Friend; Good Company), two excellent slices of vaudeville (Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon; Seaside Rendezvous), the beautiful Love Of My Life, and three brilliant progressive pieces that belong on the list of great prog works ('39; The Prophet's Song; Bohemian Rhapsody).

Throughout all this genre-swapping, the quality never diminishes, everything here is great, most of it is downright brilliant.

A must-listen.
