My all time favourite Queen album. There almost isn't a weak moment to be found on there. I love the variations of styles, the building up guitar chords that open and close the album, and I get tears in my eyes every time I hear Freddie's vocals being accompanied by the piano in You Take My Breath Away. The album tracks overshadow the singles, definitely

Another example of perfection! Queen has the ultimate mating of pure emotion/passion with musical excellence (in other words, they've got the skills to get their point across!)

White man doesn't fit the album, although it has a quality in common with all other songs on this album; emotion, and that's why i love it so much.
I think queen were at their best on this album.
Production-wise they had mastered themselves with the previous one so it left room for a far more emotional aproach. Even Roger was able to write a personal and emotional song -his best i think- and what to say about teo torriate, you take my breath away, or you and I. Heartfelt, brilliant songs. And somebody to love is simply spectacular -i never understood the videoclip though-

The songs are as good as ANATO, because they were created at the same time, this is not a ANATO reprise... why people say ANATO is the best album? listen other queen works...

In my opinion the best album Queen ever made!
all songs are very good. and the harmonies and the guitar work are incredible. also deacons bass playing in for example The Millionaire Waltz are very nice to listen too.
I think this is some kind of an "twin album" to ANATO. Simply a stunning album

I love all of the individual songs (except for drowse) but the album as a whole is boring. only tie your mother down breaks the mold of an album dedicated to freddie mercury piano ballads.

The songs on this album were easy to choose..best and worst, Drowse ...well read Sheer Heart Attack for that one (psst its a roger song :D) and Millionaire Waltz..read Queen II overview :P...an album I feel trying to match up to A Night At The Opera ... but not quite reaching its level...still a very good album though :D

Mmmm.... Let's think about this one. No track is weaker than the other, and no track stands out as the strongest, but the album is not on the same level as the others, it's lower...but I still love it. After hearing Brian's full story for Tie Your Mother Down, you can't help but laugh. Roger and John have their strongest songs on this album. I don't have much to say actually. It's good, everyone should love Drowse.

It feels a little disjointed at times, but it's still A Day At The Races, they don't make them like that anymore...grumble grumble. I love Drowse though, sorry everyone but Drowse rocks! Hard to choose a strongest track, easier however to choose a weakest one ;-)

More of the opera queen! And just as great! Lots of experimentation, wit, and inspiration. Millionaire Waltz and a few others deserve to be true first-rate queen classics. You'll gasp at the absolutely stunninguse of backing vocals and guitar layers, hit single somebody to love, with the band being overdubbed again and again into a gospel choir, being the most well-known example but good old fashioned lover boy, and millionaire waltz are equally stunnning. lacks somewhat in the songwriting to its predecessor but it gains just as much back in continuity and even bttter production. My favorite queen album

Very difficult to follow up a massive album like "A Night at the Opera", but this album does pretty well.

I've heard a theory that each song on this album has a "sister" song on Opera. It could well be true, and it's certainly quite interesting!

Another of my favorite albums of all time. I put this one step higher in comparison to "A Night at the Opera" because it was the soundtrack of a very beautiful period of my life but, if you consider that Freddie is at his best here and everything sounds absolutely perfect, I think it can't be just a personal opinion... Teo Torriate, YTMBA, The Millionaire Waltz, You and I, Somebody, White man and Good old-fashioned lover boy are astonishing!!! Queen confirm they are the best band ever!!!

Hermoso de principio a fin. Uno de los pocos CD´s que no salteo ningún tema. Las baladas de este cd son hermosas. También los temas rockeros. Otra vez Freddie se zarpa con la voz y el piano. Para destacar el muuuuy buen bajo de John, con esos files grosos en You and I, The Millionaire, Teo Torriate. Muy bien John ahí. Su mejor album para mi.

Just listen to the hard rock of Tie Your Mother Down, the romantic fantastic You Take My Breath Away, the ultra-classic Somebody To Love, the metal of White Man, the message of Teo Torriate and the great variations, the piano, the bass guitar, the drums, the guitar, and you'll see that The Millionaire Waltz is one of the best Queen songs, and A Day At The Races one on the best albums

I think You take..., The millionaire..., good-old fashioned.., you and I are great love songs. Then, Long Away and White Man, are two of Brian´s bests, and Somebody to love and TYMD are spectaculars!!!

This album is not like A night at the opera, maybe only because in A night there was one Bohemian Rhapsody, or maybe not... I don't know.
But I don't like A day like A night, although there are beautiful songs: Tie your mother down, Somebody to love, Drowse and Teo Torriatte.
Is also very good You and I, evidence that John writes good songs.

A great album, as good as A night at the opera to me.
This album is very similar, in the way Queen faced it, to A night.
It has a great job by Freddie in piano, and in vocals. But Roger's performance isn't as good as in A night. Brian does a great job in some tracks, like Tie your mother down, The millionaire waltz, somebody to love. But he isn't as good as in A night... John's job is much better than in A night..., because of his playing in the millionaire waltz, or in You and I. So I think the level of these Cd is as good as 'A night at the opera', because of John and Freddie's improvement.
