5 stars This album is a classic if ever there was one! Queen were ahead of their time! The first four Queen albums were their best, after this masterpiece they gradually got weaker and weaker, going in a horribly commercial direction.

The vocal harmonies on "The Prophet Song" and "Bohemian Rhapsody" are absolutely mindblowing (considering this is 1975) Roger Taylorīs drum sound on this album is fantastic and it is great to listen oh headphones. A very well produced album.

There isnīt one weak track on this album, they are all classics, from the ballad "Love of my life" to the proggy "Bohemian Rhapsody" There isnīt a dull moment because all the songs are so different from each other. "Good Company" is a sad but brilliant song written by Brian May, while "Death on two legs" is an angrier rocker written by Mercury " Then there is the acoustically drivenī39" and the rocking "Iīm in love with my car" All the band members have turns in the songwriting credits.

No real album/CD collection is complete without this CD/album.
