I can't believe so many people don't like Good Company. If there is one song that exemplifies the sheer genius of one Brian May, it is this one. Never before or since has there been another guitar orchestra created to sound more beautiful and genuine as this one. But I guess since it's not a pop song, many people still won't like it, anyway.

[

what I did notice is that I have both songs on MP3 and it doesn't sound so good on it... it misses relief if you see what I mean . The diffrent tunes going over, actualy sounds like just one prolanged tune and you misses the details of the diffrent voices (sure for the interacting voices in the prophet song)


...That would be because the mp3 format is shit.
Convenient, but shit.

True, unfortunately... Have you experienced this song in surround?

You keep saying the things that I want to say, thus leaving me with "AMEN!", "true dat, brotha", or "I agree"...

Anyway, I agree. ;)

Personally I think that "Good Company" is one of those type of songs that make Queen,the incredibly diverse band that they are.It's also a pretty thoughtful song.Lyrically quite clever as well."Good Company" along with "Seaside Rendevous" and "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon" are the type of diverse songs that make ANATO the classic that it is.

ANATO is very special to me.
Whenever I listen to it, I always go through from the start to the very end without stopping.
Anyway, I usually enjoy its song order and I think it important as well.
I love almost all of the numbers, but my special favorites are:
Bo Rhap
Death On Two Legs
Love Of My Life
'39
Prophet's Song
Seaside Randevous

PRECISELY! If it contained only songs like "I'm In Love With My Car" or "You're My Best friend" it wouldn't be a classic! What makes it special is the incredible range of styles and emotions on one album. I agree with your comment totally! Anybody find me any other rock group playing vaudeville...

No, I haven't! The DVD-A of ANATO is two feet away from me, but I don't have a 5.1 setup. One day I'll experience it!
