It's my favorite album by them. A great follow up to "Opera". It contains 4 of my all time favorite songs by them.
Somebody to love
Tie your mother down
Good old fashion lover boy
Long away

Definetely one of my favorite Queen albums. Kind of true when people call it a toned down version of A Night At The Opera. Can't say I like it as much as it's predecessor, but it's got some great songs. Tie You Mother Down is of course a classic, great hard rock song. The Millionaire Waltz is very cool, and the last of those Mercury-composed mini rock-operas unless you want to count Bicycle Race. Somebody To Love is one of the greatest songs ever composed, and Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy has always been a favorite of mine. Teo Torriate is a beautiful closer. All in all, an not quite an "essential" rock album like Opera, but great nonetheless.

A day at the races is my 2nd favourite album after QueenII. I have a lot of memories about my ex when I listen to it.

Furthermore the harmonies on the album are so fanfuckingtastic.
