Wasn't expecting to enjoy almost every song on here, as most reviews say that it's a forgettable group of tracks, even for a debut. What I enjoyed so much about this album was its use of mood throughout, as the key of each song seems very close in relation with each other. Really enjoyed myself with this one.

Color: Purple
FAV TRACKS: Son and Daughter, Keep Yourself Alive, Doing Alright, My Fairy King, Liar
LEAST FAV: Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll
Queen's first self titled album is a pretty good debut and overall is an entertaining album, but I can't really say that I care for it. It's clearly nothing compared to what they ended up creating in further projects, and there really isn't anything truly amazing on here. This is just a fun and inoffensive album.

Favourite Tracks: Liar; Keep Yourself Alive; Jesus; Great King Rat

Least Favourite Track: Seven Seas Of Rhye
Apesar desse álbum ter passado despercebido na sua época de lançamento, ele continua sendo um grande trabalho da banda. Bem mais hard rock do que seriam seus trabalhos futuros o Queen vem com grandes letras e instrumentais marcantes, "Liar", "My Fairy king" e "Jesus" são as grandes estrelas desse trabalho e tinham tudo para se tornar hits da banda.

Queen's debut shows their linearity and leaning into the more progressive rock wave of the early 70's. But it fails to be any memorable or impress for a debut project, it's not bad but it kinda falls on expectations, it still doesn't have a fully implemented personality sounding kind of generic after all, they really got better with time and fame, plus the intrumentals aren't that good just like the mixing and the mastering here. It can be enjoyable but i left uninpressed
More stale moments than intriguing ones, but nonetheless, Queen's debut leaves a memorable taste in your mouth. Tracks like "Keep Yourself Alive" and "Doing All Right" have stood the test of time and are still very listenable today.
