From, the ultimate progressive rock music website

5 stars Many people just think that Queen means "Radio Ga-Ga", while instead Queen have explored so much the different variety of music, reaching excellence in everything, from dance to pop, from heavy to mellow, from art rock to progressive, that a lot of over-rated prog-only bands adored here should pay a ticket to them.

This album has clearly influenced all of my music production: it is so surprising, ever-changing, hard and heavy at times, mellow and delicate at others, suddenly passing through opposite emotional states..

"White queen", for example, made me cry lots of time.. me crying? This may sound incredible to who knows me, but it's true.

"The march of the Black Queen", on the opposite, is fantasious and violent, with the imperious Queen commanding and showing her power off to servants.

Every band member has his own spot here: Mercury with "Nevermore", May with "Some day one day", Taylor with "The loser in the end", while Deacon fills all their mates' work with incredible majesty, as he has always done.

Probably thi is the only completely progressive (in the sense of experimental) Queen album, but they kept on pushing the edge until their last album "Innuendo", 18 years after this one, by never splitting, stopping or whatever.

5 stars, and file closed.
