I really enjoyed this remaster and I am very happy for it.
The album has always sounded a little harsh but to my ears this is the best version I've heard so far.
The bonus disc, however, is a little weak due to lack of interesting material:
1. Now I'm Here - Nice early live version.
2. Flick Of The Wrist - Nice BBC recording which sounds pretty close to the studio version but it is definitely worth having.
3. Tenement Funster - Same as above
4. Bring Back That Leroy Brown - New 2011 acappella mix. Interesting study of the vocals but a track I will only listen to once. If it was suddenly erased from the bonus disc I wouldn't miss it.
5. In The Lap Of The Gods...Revisited - Live At Wembley, July 1986. A complete waste of space as it's been out on the 2CD set from Wembley '86 for ages. Pointless.

The 1970's was undoubtedly Queen's most prolific creative period and the Quadrilogy I refer to is of course virtual - from Sheer Heart Attack, A Night At The Opera, A Day At the Races and News Of The World - although the second and third albums were destined to be closely linked.

Sheer Heart Attack represented a major change in step for Queen - from the highly progressive and experimental Queen and Queen II with their very limited commercially viability in terms of self-promotion (singles).

The change in step still featured an incredibly diverse mix of styles and songs - together with a number of clearly linked songs (Tenement Funster, Flick of The Wrist, Lily Of The Valley) - but with considerably more scope for singles. Queen chose but two - Killer Queen (an obvious and hugely successful choice) and Now I'm Here - but scope remained - with the very catchy John Deacon penned-pop number 'Misfire' Roger Taylor penned and vocalled 'Tenement Funster' and dare I say the pastiche 'Bring Back That Leroy Brown' (had the record companies been ready to take a chance...)
What remains is an album that feels like a worthy predeccessor to Queen's 'Sgt Pepper' - A Night At The Opera. And in terms of success - it marked a major change in step for the next 3 (yes 4 albums in just 3) years output which was of course supported by Queen's highly polished and prolific touring schedule. Again - it defined 'Album' for me - in that it was not merely a collection of singles or songs - but a marvelous emotional journey through a cascade of different flavours - from the hard but very technical Brighton Rock, the classic Killer Queen, warm blues-rock Tenement Funster through the highly futuristic and bizarre In The Lap Of The Gods, the ultra modern (for it's time) Misfire and more Gods(revisited...)with the it's hugely anthemic 'Wo Wo La La La!'

If you are to own only 4 Queen Albums - Sheer Heart Attack should definitely be included.

Musically Queen II was an album of genius, and in terms of hard rock an album Queen would never really better, but apparently sales were not particularly good, so 3rd album Sheer Heart Attack marks something of a commercialisation of the band, (this is only relatively speaking of course, and compared to the bands ‘80’s output there is still a phenomenal amount of intelligent experimental material on display). Where Queen II was mostly all either incredibly hard progressive rock or very gentle ballads however, Sheer Heart Attack sees the band stretching their range to all areas in between, and with touches of opera, calypso and ragtime (to name a few) this marks the first time that Queen would really start genre-hopping. From this album on the one thing you would be guaranteed with every Queen album (at least until they jumped on the synthesizer bandwagon in the early 80’s) was a huge amount of variety. In short, Queen II may be the better rock album, but Sheer Heart Attack is a much more rounded work. Queen would really perfect this template with their next album A Night At The Opera, and it’s very easy to listen to Sheer Heart Attack as an early attempt at this sound.
Taking the songs by author:
Freddie Mercury’s songs are noticeably more commercial this time round, particularly in the playful lead-off single ‘Killer Queen’. ‘Flick of the Wrist’ is a harder rock song, and features a great chorus and some wild swirling Eastern sounding guitar lines from Brian May in the background, while lyrically with it’s railing against the music business this a clear forerunner to A Night At The Opera’s ‘Death On Two Legs’.

In my humble opinion this is the Queen masterpiece that everyone seems to overlook....Here is the template for 'A Night at the Opera' which is often championed as their career defining moment....but I beg to differ...Just look at the variety of music on offer...the originality and inventiveness of a young group finally stretching themselves and realizing their full potential...It is an album that demands to be listened in full...and yet there are classic tracks that stand alone... Brighton Rock...Killer Queen...Lily of the Valley (simply devine)..In the lap of the Gods...and just to reming everyone of how this band can ROCK Stone Cold Crazy...As I have already said a much neglected masterpiece... R.I.P. Freddie and still 'No Synths'...
