Gazza here .... also known as Bowling King! Poozer crowbarred has let me graciously !$^*%#^ (whatever) write about the one and only supergrup QUEEN. Frag the Led Heads and their one and only reunion concert. Lucky them, its not if we can dig up ole Freddy Mercury and plonk his bones on Wembly Stadium and perform isit? One would imagine in a coupla hundred years they can DNA Mercury and grow a new one in a test tube. Hmmm .... sort of like a Thermometer!
Killer Queen is a killer track although personally i prefer "Tie Ya Mother Down" now theres a knees up. By the way, here are some facts for crowbarred to stick in his pipe since he loves rubbing his precious Beatles in my ^&%*&^$$ face ..... Queen was voted in 2007 by the BBC as being the "Best British Band Of All Time". Also in 1999 by Music Of The Millennium "The band was voted the greatest band in music history" and lastly, in 2005 - The band's performance at Live Aid is voted two times by a large selection of musicians and critics to be the greatest live show of all time by Queen!

There's a genuine excitement in hearing all the elements to Queen's sound fall into place here, as the music grows grander and catchier without sacrificing their brutal, hard attack. One of the great strengths of the album is how all four members find their voice as songwriters, penning hooks that are big, bold, and insistent and crafting them in songs that work as cohesive entities instead of flourishes of ideas. This is evident not just in "Killer Queen" - the first, best flourishing of Freddie Mercury's vaudevillian camp - but also on the pummeling "Stone Cold Crazy," a frenzied piece of jagged metal that's all the more exciting because it has a real melodic hook. Those hooks are threaded throughout the record, on both the ballads and the other rockers, but it isn't just that this is poppier, it's that they're able to execute their drama with flair and style.
