Great

Some tracks are completely outstanding, while others are somewhat annoying. The outstanding tracks well make this album go higher in its score. Much more experimental than ‘A Day at the Opera’, you can tell that they’re still drawing reference from those influences.

Color: Red
FAV TRACKS: Tie Your Mother Down, Teo Torriatte (Let Us Cling Together), Somebody to Love, The Millionaire Waltz, White Man
LEAST FAV: Long Away

Se for olhar este álbum como "O Lado B de A Night At The Opera", talvez a decepção não seja tão grande. "Somebody To Love" está num outro patamar, instrumentalmente e vocalmente falando.
Destaco também "You Take My Breath Away" e a espetacular "White Man".
