5.0 out of 5 stars Queen's best?, 23 May 2011
This review is from: Queen II (2011 Remaster Deluxe 2CD Edition) (Audio CD)
Has there ever been another album so loved by any bands die hard fans yet almost overlooked by the greater majority of the mainstream fans?.For me this is not only Queen's greatest disc,its simply one of the best heavy rock albums of all time,consistently overlooked when compiling those best rock albums ever lists!!

Like the groups debut,this has been enhanced by the 2011 remaster,i've had this on Cassette,Vinyl,CD,Remastered cd and now this version,finally a sound quality to match the grandiose style that the band envisaged all those years ago.

That the disc contains so many classic tracks(on only their 2nd disc) is a testament to the musicianship and talent they had in abundance, from the(almost) prog rock of 'Father to Son/...White Queen../...Black Queen. thru heavy rock standards 'Ogre Battle/Seven Seas Of Rye while the strutting 'Loser In The End' makes a case for being the albums best track while 'Nevermore/The Fairyfellers Masterstroke are simply delightful and yet has there ever been a more beautiful track than 'Funny How Love Is'?.

These tracks were fantastic before,this edition merely emphasizes the fact,a superb disc from a superb band.

The bonus ep is mish mash of tracks which will not be listened to on a regular basis,they are a side issue,the original album is the star here,a classic to be rediscovered.

Absolutely agree with all you have written. The best Queen album and better than Led Zep IV or any Purple, Sabbath or Who album. Never gets a look in with the critics (at Mojo or Uncut) except the unpretentious ones at Classic Rock!

Hello,Thank you,it could be argued its in the top ten of UK rock albums,certainly from the 70's.

You could be right, I'm no great fan of the band but I quite like this album.
