Prog Reviewer
4 stars I listened to this album for the first time in 1976. I wasn`t very impressed, but years later I realized that this is a very good album, maybe one of Queen`s best.

I prefer the songs which were included in the Side One of the old L.P.: "Procession", "Father to Son", "White Queen (As It Began)", "Some Day One Day" (all previous songs composed by Brian May), and "Loser in the End" (composed by Roger Taylor). In all these songs the band played with a lot of energy, particularly Brian May, whose guitars are great. He made them sound even "weird", "heavy", without using synths! I don`t know how he made them sound like that, but his work in these songs, and in all the album tracks, is very good. "Loser in the End" has funny lyrics, IMO .

The songs which were originally included in the Side Two of the old L.P. (composed by Freddie Mercury), "Ogre Battle", "Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke", "Nevermore", "March of the Black Queen", "Funny How Love Is" and "Seven Seas of Rhye", are also very good, but less interesting, IMO, but with very good vocal arrangements.
