Review

Queens 'A Night at the Opera', is consistently listed in tose 'Top Albums of All time' style polls which you often see, and for good reason too - its an excellent album. It ranked #43 in Q Magazines Top Albums poll of 1993 and Mojo Magazine said it was 'An imperial extravaganza, a cornucopia'.

One of the most obvious things about the album is that there are so many different styles of song throughout the album, everything from hard rock to piano based ballad.The Album opens with 'Death on Two Legs (Dedicated To...)' , which was an attack on a previous manager, Norman Sheffield, who did not leave on good terms. He even tried to sue the band over the song - but was unsuccessful.

The album contains some classic hits, the most popular being 'Bohemian Rhapsody', but this epic pales in comparison with the eight minute twenty second 'Prophets Song' which is also a good listen, and typical 70's solid-rock. Freddie also has the classic concert piece, 'Love of My Life', on piano this time, but from here on you will hear thousands of fans sing along with it at Queen concerts from Rio to Rotterdam.

Other hits of note on the album include Brians, year of '39' and John Deacons, 'You're My Best Friend', for which John had to go learn to play piano, as Freddie wouldn't play electric piano, especially when there was a perfectly good grand piano available.
