1-Love the guitar throughout this first song and the structure of the song is very unique which I like a lot. 2- Clearly a jokey filler song but I didn't need to skip it. 3- Ok song with good instrumentation prefer it when Freddie takes the lead vocals. 4- Just a nice happy and vibey song, love the bassline to this too. 5- Country/folk song with some strange vocal breaks. This is probably my least favourite song so far. 6- Really disliked the chorus on this and found the whole song quite lackluster with no progression at all until the very end. 7- This song definitely does at it says, it really reminds me of going to the seaside. I wouldn't choose to listen to it on its own but its an enjoyable song in the context of the album. 8- Love the introduction to this song, and the rest of it. It feels very mysterious and dramatic, which is the style I love from queen. This song could definitely fit into a stage show or film. I think the acapella section in the middle of the song ruins it's listenability for me though. 9- A very iconic and beautiful piano ballad, I don't know what else I can say really apart from the Brian May's guitar in this song is just perfect. 10- This songs seems like it could just as easily have been written and performed by The Beatles. 11- One of if not the most iconic and amazing songs of all time, every part of it is perfect. 12- A nice closer to the album, which summarises the the themes pretty well.
Good album that I will keep mind of when I need background or study music, the songs are all quite similar though so I would get bored listening to it in other circumstances. Personally I wouldn't say it is a must listen album. Favourite song: Chunga's revenge
Never got round to listening to this album but I love it and regret not listening to it sooner. Would love to listen to this late at night at a party.
