I bought Sheer Heart Attack and A Day At The Races at Best Buy yesterday. $14 each, but it's worth it!

Both have very good tracks, and i've grown to enjoy You Take My Breath Away. It's very underestimated and definitely fits in with the other songs.

My faves on SHA are Brighton Rock, Flick Of The Wrist/Lily Of The Valley, and Killer Queen.
My faves on ADATR are YTMBA, White Man, and Teo Torriate (another underestimated Queen jewel)

I'm guessing a lot of you fans have these albums (or one of them). What do you think?


We can only grow the way the wind blows

On a bare and weathered shore

We can only bow to the here and now

In our elemental war

- Rush, "The Way The Wind Blows"

Those two are my favs! I loooovvee YTMBA! It's so haunting, yet, so beautiful..
On SHA we have all the same favs! It's like the perfect album, the perfect mix of hard rocking songs, with piano ballads. ahh.. so good. :D
Teo Torriate is haunting as well, in it's lyrics. When Freddie sings "though I'm gone, still think of me the way you've come to think of me.." I get the shivers every time..
Not that fond of White Man though.. the drum thing at the end makes me jump every time!

Anybody else out there with 2 cents to throw in?



That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be friends...

On a more random note, I think that "but by every god's name, say a prayer for your race" may be the best lyric in the Queen catalogue. I love White Man. Its quintessential classic rock.
