Although this album did not storm through the charts and was critisized for not being accessible enough, I feel that it was a stepping stone in Queen going on to conquer the world. 'Keep Yourself Alive' is a great tune, unquestionably the best on the album with Brians strumming technique dictating the pace for the rest of the song. 'Doing Alright' is a slow paced biographical song with Brian May describing the life of a typical art student.(Die-Hard Queen fans should note that this is the only song on any official Queen album that is partly written by Tim Staffell, who was in Smile with Roger and Brian). 'Great King Rat' and 'My Fairy King' are songs created by the innovative and imaginative Mercury who writes about 'horses with eagles wings' and 'dragons that fly like sparrows thru the air' etc. 'Liar' is a song in which Freddie(or perhaps a fictional character) is begging for forgiveness and shows how Brian has the makings for a world-class guitar player. Brian then cultures a unique song in 'The Night Comes Down' which is slightly more progressive than the others because very little electric guitar work can be heard on it. Roger's contibution to the album is the 2-minute rocker 'Modern Times Rock'n'Roll' which leads into the heavy 'Son and Daughter' which is very much a twin to 'Sweet Lady' on 'A Night at the Opera'. Freddie shows his interest in religion in 'Jesus' and the album finishes with the original version of 'Seven Seas of Rhye' which is instrumental.
The only criticism of this album is that it only has one truely outstanding song and Freddies vocal range has clearly not developed to it's true potential. However I would highly recommend buying it and any Queen fan who does not own it should be ashamed of themselves!!!!

this album was realeased in 1973 but some songs are from earlier on when they formed in 1971. every song bar jesus and the unfinished 7 seas of rhye are exellent,my personal favorite and the one i cant seem to get out of my head is "the night comes down" with its neck tingling guitars and freddie`s soaring vocals. this album is an absolute must for rock fans out there. if this album came inbeetween say sheer heart attack and night at the opera,no one would have batted an eyelid,but because its a debut it gets top marks.

Before Queen found their feet and decided to be a flambouyant, slightly glam and later a tongue-in-cheek rock band, Queen were churning out well-crafted no-nonsense heavy rock classics.

This album is a mixture of ballads (Doin' Alright) and classy heavy metal (Liar and Great King Rat).

The whole effect is far less pretentious than their later offerings, and a bit unsure of itself but great fun, nasty and loud.

If you have never heard this debut album, you may well be surprised at how raw it sounds compared to other Queen work. Certainly, there is much more band and less producer here. For a debut album, it is very accomplished indeed. No weak songs and no filler.
"Keep Yourself Alive" and "Liar" are my personal favourites but I'll happily listen to every song on this CD over and over again.
The CD shows up some limitations of the original recording in terms of levels of noise but this is not uncommon in recordings from so long ago.

Queen's debut album released on 13th July 1973, exactly twelve years to the day before their triumphant performance at Live Aid. Other titles considered for this album were 'Top Fax, Pix and Info' suggested by Roger Taylor, and 'Deary Me', a favourite phrase of one of the album's producers Roy Thomas Baker.

This album is a hard rock masterpiece which surprisingly did not set the charts alight peaking at number 24 in the UK album charts and 83 in US; however it did stay in the UK charts for 18 weeks and achieved gold status. The opening song was also Queen's first single `Keep Yourself Alive' which opens with an impressive guitar phasing effect before Freddie launches into the opening verse. The old Smile classic `Doing All Right' follows and is credited to May and Staffell on the album. In later years Smile's lead singer Tim Staffell confessed that the song had earned him a considerable amount of royalties over the years. `Great King Rat' and `My Fairy King' are Freddie's first foray into a fantasy world of characters that would not look out of place in a JRR Tolkien novel.

Side 2 (for those who remember LPs) kicks off with what must be Queen's heaviest song to date - `Liar'. With a thrashing aggressive guitar solo and over the top power-drumming that would rival any heavy metal band, this is arguably the best song on the album. However the song was utterly destroyed when released in a poorly edited form in the US for the band's second single there, when it predictably failed to chart. `My Fairy King' is a lighter ballad with delicate lyrics and an early glimpse of the harmonies that would become one of Queen's trademarks.

Several reasons to buy this.
1. There's no representation of this great album on Greatest Hits I, which is only due to the fact that it didn't contain a hit single. This was only due to lack of exposure.
2. It's a rare complement to the rest of the Queen catalogue as they sound like a mixture of themselves, but with Led Zep, Hendrix and maybe a bit of Deep Purple thrown in.

Basically, this album is an overlooked gem. The first 5 tracks are as solid a start as any Queen album. It's fair to say that the last 2 tracks are best forgotten ('Jesus' in particular. . . terrible lyrics especially).
After brief, but enjoyable tracks 'The Night Comes Down' and 'Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll', the listener is treated to 'Son and Daughter', which is a wonderful classic rocker with a riff worthy of Jimi Hendrix himself.

If this Queen album isn't worth 5 stars, I don't know what is. Not as overblown as Queen II, this is a must purchase and a great culmination of 3 years worth of material. Hell, why not buy them both.
