I can't say enough about this album. Though "Bohemian Rhapsody" is perhaps the best known song on the album, some of the other tracks are guitar epics. "The Prophet's Song" is nothing short of amazing. Brian May is a consistently underrated player, not to mention composer and arranger. The range of material is staggering. Keeping in mind the fact that they used no synthesizer and Brian used minimal effects makes it even more incredible. If you are serious about your playing, you owe it to yourself to own this album and listen to it repeatedly.

Yeah, It may not be better than the Marx Brother's movie, but hey, what is. But this is Queen at their best, and their best is really good. With this record they showed their versatility as well as pure musicianship.

I purchased this record when it first hit the shelf without hearing one note. What a spectacular choice !! This record holds so many memories. I practically memorized 80% of the lyrics. Anyway, this record holds so much beauty (Love of my life), pop (You're my best friend), rock (Death on two legs, Sweet Lady), folk ('39), and 2 epics (Bohemian Rhapsody, The Prophet's Song). As strange as this seems, the album starts out with the line, You suck my blood like a leech, and closes with their rendition of 'God Save the Queen'. A must-have CD for any collection. One of the best of the 70's.
