Queen are a band known by everyone and their mother. But they’re often known more for their hit singles than for their albums.
A Night at the Opera is Queen’s fourth and arguably best album. Also the only Queen record I own, but hopefully that will be remedied in the near future.
Seriously a classic album. Of course, most people will know it as the album with Bohemian Rhapsody on it…
… but the album has so much more to offer! The hit You’re My Best Friend is also on it. So is I’m In Love With My Car, a pretty unique track, even as far as Queen goes. The entire album is listenable, from front to back.
My favourite song on the album though, outside the obvious hits, has got to be ’39, a crazy sci-fi narrative written by Brian May.
