If their first two albums represented breakthroughs in the U.S. and the U.K., Sheer Heart Attack, Queen’s 3rd lp, was yet another jump up the ladder. An international smash hit, it’s an album that really highlights the band’s pre-eminent credibility in hard rock/heavy metal. Were they not so wildly and successfully eclectic, Queen would still have been known as a first rank hard rock band and Sheer Heart Attack features some of their best. “Killer Queen”, “Stone Cold Crazy”, “In The Lap Of The Gods” “Now I’m Here” songs that remain among the pantheon. The band so loved the album title that they revived it for another of their signature frenetic rockers on the `News of the World’ album, but more on that another time…

List Price: $ 10.25

    I miss Freddie so much. Queen has always stood out as one of my favorite bands, and this is one of their greatest albums (although they are all good).

    5-Star Classic album – NOTE: THIS Edition Does Not Come with 2011 BONUS EP, June 26, 2015

    Has all the beginning elements of what Queen was to ultimately be known for. Consider this the “Today!” or “Summer Days” of The Beach Boys before Brian turned in “Pet Sounds”. Great music all around before it becomes almost too-smooth and perfect, and we get Freddie’s first “music hall” tune – “Bring Back That LeRoy Brown” – doesn’t rock in that garage sense nearly as hard as “Queen” and “Queen II” but also has more melodies and the hit, “Killer Queen” which established their chart-hit onslaught!

    I’ve been a huge fan of the Marx Brother-titled back-to-back album smashes, but I also love the early Queen, the over-the-top beauty and elements of “The Miracle” and even their hodge-podge anthemic and catchy album, “A Kind of Magic”. Get all with the Bonus EPs. Only a few bucks more! I did repurchase the 2-CD edition – and some great stuff on there, including a Freddie vocal/ukulele mix of “Leroy Brown”. GET THE 2-CD EDITION!

    PLEASE NOTE: This exact [Remastered] Edition from 2011 is ONLY the remastered album. For the 2011 remastered album plus the bonus CD (bonus EP CDs came with every other Queen album remaster), THIS EDITION Is not the one to get for the bonus EP. For a few bucks more, it’s worth it. That’s why this gets a 4/5. Amazon Prime does not service the 2-CD edition… yet it services all the other albums. Make sure you get the 2-CD edition on Amazon (from a third party seller) and not this one if buying on CD! 5 extra tracks you need if you are a fan of the album, and if you BECOME a fan of the album, then you’ll curse yourself for not buying the 2-disc. You can get all the rest of the Queen catalogue, remastered by Bob Ludwig (2011) serviced by Amazon Prime. I’m guessing this was a hickup.
