From a die hard Queen fan (I’m 53) I still consider this their best album. The songs are blended together in spots to make it just like a story. Father to Son is definitely my favorite for sure!! They just don’t make beautiful music like this in the rock world anymore. R.I.P. Freddie.
Critical to the Rock genre
Without this unique and different take on rock it wouldn’t of shaped into what it is now. From its beautiful lyrics to its emotional performance that the band delivers its truly something worth a listen.
Best Queen Album of All Time!
I first heard this as a 14 year old kid when my brother purchased it on cassette in 1974. That's when I fell in love with Queen. This album is a masterpiece! I love every song on this album, The Fairy Feller's Master Stroke was my favorite as a kid and it still gives me a thrill when I hear it. This was Queen at its best all the way through!

Great example of Queen's classic rock sound. The use of pianos on this album is very smart. I recommend The Fairy Teller's Master-Stroke and Ogre Battle for some great songs to listen to anytime.
One of Queens Best Albums
I love this album. Actually Queen sounded amazing from their first effort, Liar is a favorite. This album is more progressive rock, lots of Brian’s guitar, which I’m certain he loves, versus some of their ‘80s efforts. Freddie’s voice sounds amazingly strong. I’ve read professional reviews that claim his voice isn’t strong enough, I totally disagree. Father to Son I like. I love March of the Black Queen. Nevermore I've always liked. I LOVE Seven Seas of Rye. I always wondered where Freddie came up with such interesting lyrics and I go back to his journeys from Zanzibar to boarding school in India-a two month trip by ship at age 7 by himself. He revisits some similar lyrics in one of my favorite tracks “Lilies of the Valley” I think on Sheer Heart Attack”.
It’s hard to pick a favorite album, I have my favorite songs starting with Queen I all the way to Innuendo and Made in Heaven. But for a second album it’s great. Highly recommend.

Didn't like this one Not so much as the other albums just because this one is too polished. It sounds like queen overdosed on overdub
By Bruh I tell the truth
Seven seas of rye is the only good one. I have never heard something so foul sounding in my entire life. Come one queen, you could have done better. I recommend a day at the races. In that album u have some good music
March of the Black Queen is by far one of Queen's best songs, and this is one of their best albums!
Queen's Best Work!!
Although not critically acclaimed I consider this Queen's best work! First heard this album back in 1974 in my biology class where our very hip teacher let students bring in albums to play during our dissection labs (I heard Jethro Tull's Aqualung for the first time there too). It was played on an old dinky mono record player but sounded great! Saw them live in 1976 at the Santa Monica Auditorium and it was one of the best concerts I've ever attended. Freddy Mercury was at his full "glam" best with 4 costume changes and encores. This album defined progressive rock for me!
Few good ones
This is not queen's best albums but a few good songs
