A nice happy go lucky album put out by Queen. Freddie Mercury's vocals are super once again, especially on "Bohemian Rhapsody" which goes down in my book as the best rock opera ever done by anyone. Freddie's vocals also stands out on bassist's John Deacon's "You're My Best Friend", which is the next best song on the album. Then you got drummer Roger Taylor's heavy metal number, "I'm In Love With My Car", which is yet another winner. This band never had a problem when it came to hard rockin'! Throughout A Night At The Opera is the fine over laying guitar work of Brian May. This album will put a smile on your face every time you give it a spin!
