1 stars 1.5 stars really!!

Before I even begin to rate this, get one thing straight: I am not a huge Queen fan. I like to listen to an occasional song or two from them, but I struggle to listen to an entire album of theirs. Nothing really stands out on this album especially. I book this album as the weakest Queen album I've heard, and none of the songs are progressive either.

The album starts with We Will Rock you, which is one of the most overplayed, overrated, and worst songs ever. It's repetitive, an awful guitar solo, and has no depth. Thank God they followed this with We Are The Champions, which is an incredible shorter song. There are a couple other really lousy tracks, most are just okay, and the only other great song is Spread Your Wings.

This album, like I've said earlier, isn't proggy at all. If you're expecting Queen I or II, you won't get that here either. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, but then again I don't love Queen.

Final Score: 1.5/5

J-Man | 1/5 |
