Queen made all of this work so well, and all of this is what makes it the tantalizing and spellbinding wonder that it is, and after many years of listening to this album, I'm still discovering subtleties buried underneath it's mysterious surface.
Queen's great popularity is in no doubt due to albums like 'A Night At The Opera' and their greatest hits compilation, but also due the number of great singles they released during their time as a band.
Queen's sound is definitely much more developed with this album; the operatic-like sound is there, the songwriting is better (even if some of the themes are a bit odd) and it is one of those albums you can listen right the way through and fully enjoy, rather than skip tracks.

 Amazon.ca: Books: Queen Elizabeth II: A Woman Who Is Not Amused   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Undaunted, Davies interweaves a standard account of the routine at "Buck House" where the Queen sits at her dispatch boxes or at tea, with graphic depictions of the alleged sexual diversions of almost everyone else in the House of Windsor.
Taste is not high on Davies's agenda: he refers to the 94-year-old Queen Mother in the past tense, as if predicting her demise before publication date; "a substantial portion of palace staff are gay" he tells us for no apparent reason; and he ridicules Princess Anne for wearing cotton underwear.
From the time she became queen at 26 to the present, contends Davies (Death of a Tycoon, 1993), Elizabeth has had one mission: to uphold the monarchy and all its archaic standards and practices.

Although QUEEN II borders on heavy metal (it wasn't until their next release, SHEER HEART ATTACK, that they began experimenting with other musical forms), the songwriting and playing is still top-notch.
Queen was criticized by some in the press upon the release of QUEEN II, since there was simply nothing to compare it to--it encompassed glam, progressive, and metal, with a healthy dose of studio wizardry.
QUEEN II contained the band's first official UK hit--the mystical "Seven Seas of Rhye"--and, as on their debut a year prior, the lesser-known material is just as delightful.
