Queen - Sounds Like Queen mp3 album
Queen is the self-titled debut studio album by the British rock band Queen, released on 13 July 1973 by EMI Records in the UK and by Elektra Records in the US. It was recorded at Trident Studios and De Lane Lea Music Centre, London, with production by Roy Thomas Baker, John Anthony and the band members themselves. The album was influenced by heavy metal and progressive rock. The lyrics are based on a variety of topics, including folklore ("My Fairy King") and religion ("Jesus").
Like any patchy but promising debut from a classic rock group, it's often easy to underrate Queen's eponymous 1973 debut, since it has no more than one well-known anthem and plays more like a collection of ideas than a cohesive album. But what ideas! Almost every one of Queen's signatures are already present, from Freddie Mercury's operatic harmonies to Brian May's rich, orchestral guitar overdubs and the suite-like structures of "Great King Ra. That rich, florid feel could be characterized as glam, but even in these early days that appellation didn't.
The lead single could drop within the next two months, says a report. Harry Styles’ upcoming solo album sounds like David Bowie and Queen, according to a new report. Styles has been writing songs with Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid, who is also known for his collaborations with Ed Sheeran. McDaid said last year that the One Direction singer’s solo material will blow the socks off the world

Queen (album) - Queenpedia. com - A comprehensive Queen Discography, Queen Interviews, Queen History. Everything you need to know about Freddie Mercury, Brian May, Roger Taylor, and John Deacon. The history of this album would not be complete unless a little background is given on the formation of Queen. Brian May and Roger Taylor, who had been performing in their own bands in their own hometowns of Middlesex and Truro, respectively, throughout the 1960s, finally crossed paths in 1968 when Roger answered an ad placed by two aspiring musicians, Brian and former bandmate and good friend Tim Staffell.
Queen albums, like the band, were brilliant, flamboyant and preposterous, and the work of a band who lit up the 70s and 80s and remain a juggernaut today. Queen albums weren't really made to be analysed. Much like iconic frontman Freddie Mercury and the band who created them, they're albums to be celebrated rather than picked apart. Always prepared to be adventurous, Queen started with a firm hard rock foundation from which they touched on almost every possible aspect of music. Queen II is arguably the heaviest Queen album. Ogre Battle hit the metal trail, The March Of The Black Queen offered prog-rock retribution, Father To Son was eerily catchy and Nevermore was a prime-cut ballad. Stylistically there was nothing here that wasn’t on the superior debut, and you can hear the band struggling with the traditional ‘difficult second album’ problems.
Queen’s debut album, a mix of progressive rock, heavy metal, and/or hard rock, showcases songs by Freddie Mercury (frontman, primary vocalist and pianist) and Brian May (lead guitarist), with one track by drummer Roger Taylor. After many passed-on bass players, it was John Deacon who finally became Queen’s official bass player in January 1971. After the groundbreaking success of Queen’s fourth album, A Night at the Opera, Queen’s first album gained far more acclaim (and sales). In and of itself, at the time, in mid-1973, very, very few predicted the album as an indicator of what would become legendary, blockbuster rock-god success. Queen Q&A.
