''Long before ''Bohemian Rhapsody'' turned them into household names, Queen was a noble hard rock band, drawing upon the pioneering spirit of Led Zeppelin for inspiration on their debut disc. The intricate guitar work of Brian May and the roaring vocals of the late Freddie Mercury help make this Queen's heaviest album ever. While they would go on to create more complex and perhaps more memorable disks, ''Queen'' remains our favorite bang for the buck, pomp metal collection.''

''It always surprises me how many fans say they still like our first album best.'' (Brian) May said. ''I think it was good, but it was still the work of a band searching for its true musical voice, which I believe we did find a few years later.''
