Queen – Sheer Heart Attack Album Review

Queens 3rd album released 8th November 1974. Which meany in a Year Queen had released 3 albums.
If Queen II had created a mythical sound scape the Sheet]r Heart Attack delivers another aspect. That of personality humour and musical diversity.
Th First track Brighton Rock starts with fair ground noises and someone whistles I Do Like To Be Beside The Seaside which links it to the end of Queen II with Seven Seas Of Rhye Ending. The Brian May guitar solo is nothing short of epic and is still played live today.
Killer queen gave them a No2 Hit in uk charts and a spot on Top Of The Pops
Tenement Funster one of Roger Taylor’s finest Queen songs to date.
Flick Of The Wrist was a double A Side with Killer Queen but never for the deserved attention.
Lily of the Valley a short but lovely little ballad
Now I’m Here gave Queen another hit with this rocker which saw Brian May record the guitars while I’ll in hospital.
Side two kicks off the In The Lap Of athe Gods not to be mixed up with the Revisited Version at end of album.
Stone Cold Crazy is a fire cracker of a song actually covered by the mighty Metallica in the 90s.
Dear Friends is a beautiful but sad little tune before going into Misfire which was John Deacons first Queen song
Bring Back Leroy Brown a humourus vaudeville song featuring George Formby Ukulele Banjo
She Makes Me (Stormtrooper In Stilettos) a Brian May song with heavy breathing and police sirens at the end.
Finishes off with In The Lap Of The God’s Revisited And Try Classic which should have been a single and played live throughout Queens live shows
Brilliant album and one of Queens finest

Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer Breakdown – What You Might Have Missed



Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer Breakdown – What You Might Have Missed Live Reaction Video https://youtu.be/2UWZ7e45DNg Sally Reaction Video https://youtu.be/LAMCDO1f0-o The opening starts with the famous Freddie Mercury day-o which is apperently sang for the movie by Marc Martel Of Queen Extravaganza We also see Rami Malek dressed as Freddie through the years from Sheer Heart Attack Tour through The Crazy Tour Of 1979 as well as Live Aid. We don’t however see the yellow jacket era of the 1986 Magic Tour. In the beginning of Queen we see the band Smile in back of van with the Smile logo clearly visible before cutting to scenes from Freddie’s parties. The film also looks at his friendship and relationship with Mary Austen. One thing I had missed first watching the trailer was the scene where Freddie Mercury hands Dj Kenny Everett a copy of Bohemian Rhapsody which Kenny went on to play Everyone has been wondering which part Mike Myers of Wayne’s World fame will play. It’s my guess he’s playing Eric Hall who in the clip says Bohemian Rhapsody is too long

Bohemian Rhapsody Trailer Reaction

On November 2nd The film Bohemian Rhapsody will be released
Check out the official trailer

My overall impression from the trailer is that this is going to be a quality movie. It seems that the film will cover the eras from the beginning of the Queen story through Rainbow 74 Hammersmith 75 Houston 77 The Crazy And Hot Space Tour right up TIL Live Aid In 1985

There was talk from Sacha Baron Cohen that the film would be Freddie dying in the middle of the movie and the rest of the film being about the band carrying on. From the trailer this doesn’t seem to be the case.

A lot of people seem to think the success of the movie can only be if Rami Malek looks identical to Freddie Mercury. Personally it’s more about his skill as an actor and the film telling the compelling story of Queen and the greatest singer in rock music.

It’s a film about Queen it’s gotta be good. And it it isn’t then the soundtrack will be amazing
