I think it's nice to see what other queenfans think about the various albums so here are my thoughts on 'Sheer heart attack'I will also rate the songs with stars, from 1 to 5.

Brighton Rock: I really love this songs.Great vocals and of course fantastic guitarwork(brian his typical sounds,great!).Roger's drumming sounds great aswell!!It's really fantastic.5 stars

Killer queen: This is one of my alltime favourits!!It has everything a typical freddiesongs has.Great harmonies,freddie's voice is perfect with a lot of emotion(as always)It's catchy though it does have a complicated structure.There are great sounds in it(drumsound,guitar etc.)One of the essential songs for brian too.His typical guitarwork is very prominent here aswell.Great lyrics too. 5 stars

Tenement Funster: one of my most loved Roger-sung songs!!He does a great job,also with the guitar.Truly in love with his voice!!!He is a fantastic singer. He has such a unique timbre and sings with lots of emotion.TATDOOL is a good example of that(during this tour)3,5 stars

Flick of the wrist: What a song.Another great freddie-song.He could write any style he wanted,i think.It's not only a great compostion, it sounds great aswell(like the whole album).In terms of production the eighties were a lot worse for Queen.Great lyrics!! 5 songs

Lily of the valley: I really like the way Flick of the wrist segues into this great song. This is another example of freddie's unique songwriting(nevermore,...)His lyrics on this album are all outstanding!!This song is no exception. His vocal interpretation is top!
4 stars

Now I'm here : Great use of stereo with the echo's burt there are live-versions that I prefer.It is an important queensong and live it's one of my absolute highlights(especially the fast'79 versions)3,5 stars

In the lap of the gods: Not too much too say about this one.i like it.Great roger falsetto's and great intro!!Very touching(the vocal effects are great) 3 stars.

Stone cold crazy: Great hardrocker!!Nice addition to the queencatalogue.Freddie does an amazing job! 4 stars

Dear friends: A sad song with a lot of hope in it aswell.Like the lyrics and like the sentiment.3,5stars

Misfire: I like john's writing and he does a fine job here.Like the way this song sounds.
3,5 stars

Bring back that leroy brown: Phenomenal song with great sounds and very funny.Freddie Mercury:what a genius!!:-)5 stars

She makes me :I don't like this song very much. I can stand it but nothing more.I like the sentence:And if I'm very slow,she makes me so:-)
1,5 stars

In the lap of the gods...: Freddie was absolutely outstanding on this album.Another great freddie-song.Lots of emotion in it.5 stars:-)

Hey folks,this is my favourite album.I think it's an essential queenalbum and everyone should buy it:-)Queen only gets credit(from the press)for ANATO but this is for me as good as ANATO.
