Its probably the most neglected album I have in my collection and I have all of them. It is a very strong album however. Very Led Zeppelinish with alot of the workings of the songs. I like most of all the songs on this album but the main 3 I like the most in order are 1.) THE NIGHT COMES DOWN....2.) GREAT KING RAT.....3.) JESUS

When I bought Queen, I didn't know much about the band, and so as I realised it was their first albulm, I wasn't sure what it was going to be like, but when I heard it, I was amazed. Keep Yourself Alive was the best way to start it, sets the mood for the rest of the albulm. And then, the main Queen trait came out, doing something with the music no one expects. Going from a fast rocker like Keep Yourself Alive, to Doin' Alright, Great King Rat, and then to one of my favoirtes, My Fairy King (although out of all the Queen songs, Doin' Alright has remained a favoirte. I have always liked liar and The Night Comes Down, and I love Rogers vocals so Modern Times Rock'n'Roll is for me one of the albulms best songs. Son and Daughter is a song that fits well within the albulm but again lyrically is in contrast to My Fairy King or Liar, and yet it still worls perfectly within the albulm, quite good for a band working with, from what I've read, quite a useless producer. Jesus is a song that I can never decide how I feel about it, I will have to listen to it again....And yes, Seven Seas of Ryhe was dissapointing, but not so dissapointing on Queen II! And, is that the last track on the albulm? I am totaly confused now since returning to this site. There was a post about the albulms and someone said something about a track called 'Mad The Swine'. Is this on the Queen albulm or another albulm?

Thanks,

M.H

i would most probably say that keep Yourslef Alive because the guiter riff and Seven Seas Of Rhye because of the piano intro

it must of taken Freddie quite a long time to get that right for the track :)

Liar was the best song on this album! I can relate to the lyrics and song.
Keep Yourself Alive was also mentioning......

'Mad the Swine' was previously unreleased until the Hollywood Records release of 'Queen' in 1991. I believe it was recorded in 1972 and composed by our very own Freddie Mercury.

Rumor has it Freddie Mercury didn't feel the song to be adequate enough for the 'Queen' album, which is sad actually. If it were to be on the album I think it would have come right after 'Great King Rat,' remember that drum roll? That was supposed to lead into 'Mad the Swine.'

good average album, very good if we consider it has been recorded in a fool way: starting sessions from 2.00 AM and stopping when Mr.Bowie & CO. went into studio for their daily sessions.... really absurd!
I have to say that the lack of support in producing Queen, gave the boost to the band in explore the board giving to the light awesome arrangements in the next periods: no producer might enginerize that sounds at the time.
there are a lot of zepelinian contaminations among it but some songs are masterpiece:
Keep yourself alive, Great King Rat, Doin' alright, My fairy king.... wow !

I absoultely looove the first album. My favorites? hmmm...Liar because it has great music to it and blends well with the voice Freddie had in the 70s! Also, I loove the Night Comes Down-very mellow and has this great 70s feel to it! Perfect!! Jesus is awesome! A very powerful and detailed song!! Great King Rat and Son and Daughter-very kick ass rock songs!! Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll always makes me wanna sing along-Roger just has that power! :P and My Fairy King is very mellow, but with that great Queen sound!! Along with Keep Yourself Alive-all around great song!! It's a really good album. I liek the whole thing! :)

To the topic starter...
I know this is off topic, but I can't see how some people here trust others so much as to put their first and last name in plain view of anyone and everyone in the forum and on the internet. It amazes me.Don't people nowadays know that all an insane axe murderer has to do is type your name in Yahoo people search and boom! There's your address and phone number...? I mean, I was afraid for weeks when I accidentally sent someone a picture of my cat because her tag had my family's last name and phone number on it, and you could see it in the picture. This guy's got his first and last name up here.
Aren't people cautious anymore?

Carry on. -_-

Man.... if they're gonna get you, they're gonna get you... why agonise? Personally I am still waiting to meet kenny8, but I'm not at all intimidated by the prospect. He'd probably be too busy wetting his pants with excitement to do anything untoward. I'd just bless him and then move along.

See I have the re-released CD! But no Mad The Swine to be seen or heard, maybe I can find it on LimeWire, I saw it their once...

And thanks for the info about Freddie's thoughts on the song, very intersting!
