5th studio album by British hard rock legends. "A Night At The Opera" scored at #1 in Britain and #4 in the USA.

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 LED ZEPPELIN 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. (AMG review)
