UK, 1975, hard rock / art rock

QueenA Night at the Opera: More like Night at the Variety Show. This album’s got show tunes, operettas, folk rock, piano ballads, and, of course, hard rock bangers. And they end it like proper Englishmen, by playing “God Save the Queen”. Yep, definitely a variety show. By the way, this is the album with “Bohemian Rhapsody”, and in the context of this album, it’s not a standalone track but is the natural consequence of the whole wonderful program that ran before it.
