Progrography

Queen
You can't spell grandiloquent without grand and most of eloquent, so maybe critics have been praising Queen all along. The band's first two albums were remarkably ambitious if not entirely effective. Sheer Heart Attack gave the band their first big Transatlantic hit, "Killer Queen," and A Night At The Opera followed with "Bohemian Rhapsody" and "You're My Best Friend." The rest, as they say, is history. The Game signalled a shift from operatic excess to disco (where the new divas were being made), a trend that continued until Freddie Mercury's death in 1991. Brian May, Mercury and Roger Taylor have all released solo albums, though none have approached the music of Queen in terms of popularity.
