A Night at the Opera [30th Anniversary CD/DVD]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Queen were straining at the boundaries of hard rock and heavy metal on Sheer Heart Attack, but they broke down all the barricades on A Night at the Opera, a self-consciously ridiculous and overblown hard rock masterpiece. Using the multi-layered guitars of its predecessor as a foundation, A Night at the Opera encompasses metal "Death on Two Legs," "Sweet Lady", pop the lovely, shimmering "You're My Best Friend", campy British music hall "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon," "Seaside Rendezvous", and mystical prog rock "'39," "The Prophet's Song", eventually bringing it all together on the pseudo-operatic "Bohemian Rhapsody." In short, it's a lot like Queen's own ...

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Queen were straining at the boundaries of hard rock and heavy metal on Sheer Heart Attack, but they broke down all the barricades on A Night at the Opera, a self-consciously ridiculous and overblown hard rock masterpiece. Using the multi-layered guitars of its predecessor as a foundation, A Night at the Opera encompasses metal "Death on Two Legs," "Sweet Lady", pop the lovely, shimmering "You're My Best Friend", campy British music hall "Lazing on a Sunday Afternoon," "Seaside Rendezvous", and mystical prog rock "'39," "The Prophet's Song", eventually bringing it all together on the pseudo-operatic "Bohemian Rhapsody." In short, it's a lot like Queen's own version of Led Zeppelin IV, but where Zep find dark menace in bombast, Queen celebrate their own pomposity. No one in the band takes anything too seriously, otherwise the arrangements wouldn't be as ludicrously exaggerated as they are. But the appeal -- and the influence -- of A Night at the Opera is in its detailed, meticulous productions. It's prog rock with a sense of humor as well as dynamics, and Queen never bettered their approach anywhere else. [In 2005, Hollywood Records released a two-disc, remastered 30th anniversary CD/DVD of A Night at the Opera that included a DVD featuring original and new videos, as well as audio commentary from the band.]
