Queen's best rated album due to Bo Rap and Your My Best Friend.....but other lesser knowns such as Love of My Life, The Prophet Song, '39 and I'm In Love With My Car make it a classic.

If I were to categorize Queen's musical style into one word, it would be (without the shadow of a doubt,) extravagant. "A Night At The Opera" showcases this talent with perfection and flaunts the band in a way that thrills its audience. Each of the twelve songs on this album brings something new to the table, especially one of the greatest songs of all time - Bohemian Rhapsody, dubbed an orchestral masterpiece nowadays, and a failure when it was first introduced. Though I believe that the fact of people once seeing this song as flawed has only added to its behemoth of popularity, and all for the right reasons. When playing through each of the twelve songs on the album, you can clearly hear the passion and pride that Freddie Mercury introduced to his music; his vindictiveness in "Death On Two Legs," his playfulness in "Lazing On a Sunday Afternoon," and his romance in "Love of My Life." Even those behind the band's front man were incredible; Brian May further added to the kaleidoscope of tones that he already once created with his guitar, Roger Taylor exploring different song types and categories and John Deacon who was quite inventive with the different sounds his bass guitar could offer. " A Night At The Opera" is all the best things about Queen and more; showstopping, emotional and just- brilliant. 5/5. @showmethemonet! of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board
