Probably my fave Queen bar none. We spent a lot of time listening and learning this stuff. A must have for all music fans.

From: Tony Date: April 10, 2002 at 3:47
One of the top 3 albums of all time for me. For Queen this is a perfect album as every song is a classic and they seemd to be at the height of their songwriting here. A "must have" in a cd collection.

From: Desert Rat Date: August 31, 2002 at 19:57
My favorite Queen album. This was a more stripped down hard rock sound for them, where they largely abandoned the opera influences of previous albums, and it worked great. We all know about that song that is still a staple at sports events, but there is also "Fight from the Inside", "Get Down, Make Love", "Sheer Heart Attack", "Sleeping on the Sidewalk". A Queen classic if there ever was one.

we are the champions and we will rock you

From: ALEJANDRO Date: June 6, 2003 at 13:00
Posiblemente el ltimo gran disco de Queen hasta INNUENDO.De aqu en ms llegaran esas experiencias nefastas con la msica disco y comercial que dieron resultados dispares.Cuantas bandas pseudopesadas quisieran tener en sus repertorios temas como IT`S LATE SHEER...? Amn de los dos clsicos,estan las joyas SPREAD..GET DOWN..SLEEPING.. y la gema olvidada de la discografia de la banda: MY MELANCHOLY BLUES. May y Mercury en su mejor momento. INDISPENSABLE. 10/10 carro_martin2000@yahoo.com.ar

From: Blaine Date: February 2, 2004 at 22:44
Definitely, the MOST OVER-RATED BAND on any Vancouver radio station and always MOST OVER-RATED movie soundtrack music. I watch my fair share of movies and I will not watch the movie "MIRACLE". "A KNIGHT'S TALE" was a good movie with an awful soundtrack. Sorry, but at one time, I used to enjoy Queen but not anymore. Through in REM for good measure.

From: sinner Date: March 6, 2004 at 6:39
Spread your Wings, Get Down Make Love----stamp this one a classic!- - REM?-what the hell is that guy on about---he must be posing as a Canadian-deport that S.O.B!!! NOW!!!! Queen Rule.

From: Big Papa K Date: June 27, 2004 at 23:19
Good comeback after stumbling a bit with "A Day At The Races". Once you get past the opening two songs that everyone is probably sick of, you get some of their best album tracks in "It's Late", "Get Down, Make Love" and "Spread Your Wings". 9/10

From: Strander Date: October 31, 2004 at 6:18
Some great tracks on this album but as a whole, not my favorite. In my opinion this one and "Jazz" were the weakest Queen albums in 70s if compared in Album level (not singles).

From: Xenonmusic Date: October 6, 2010 at 20:00
In my Top-Ten-List of the most hated songs there you'll find "We are the champignons" and "We will fu** you"

From: Dramarama Date: August 17, 2015 at 0:40
I got this cassette from my grandparents when I was a kid. I felt like I knew every single song on it already. Absolute masterpiece, possibly the best album of all time and All Dead, All Dead is easily the best song ever written about a dead cat. 🐱

From: rick kerch vzla Date: June 24, 2020 at 22:43
Cool album with major hits of the band that are considered hymns of the music history...in my case "Spread Your Wings" & "Who Needs You" are the ones for me.87/100...a jewel for sure 💎 .87/100
