5.0 out of 5 stars Queen Masterpiece in 5.1 surround. May 15, 2002
Format:DVD Audio
This album - originally from 1975 - has been remastered in 96/24Khz 5.1 surround by the original engineers ( Ray Thomas Baker & Brian May ), so obviously they know the music really well. The disc contains DTS 5.1; DVD Audio MLP advanced resolution 5.1; and standard stereo tracks. On screen lyrics are available - either seperately, or as the song is playing - useful if one is a karaoke fan... Also there is a small picture gallery of Queen from the mid 70's. The booklet also includes the song lyrics and a few photos, too. The 'piece de resistance' is the inclusion of the "Bohemian Rhaspody" video in DTS 5.1, which looks pretty good for it's age and sounds wonderful...!!!
The surround makes one feel as if one is sitting in the middle of the actual recording with the central position being taken by Freddie's superlative voice.
I've heard that the members of Queen, their managers, and record company were so impressed by this surround sound mix that all of the Queen albums have been given the go-ahead for surround mixes... Wonderful news!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Title Is Neccesary to Get Your Review Noticed February 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Ah. What could i say where could i begin? So much to say that's been said a thousand times before. The year was 1975. Queen had released 3 previous albums, ranging from good to amazing. They had done everything - classic rock, hard rock, metal, punk-esque, ragtime, caribean, comedic, operetic, poppy, ballady, and quite frankly all of it was extremely experiemental and worked beautifuly. Where did queen have to go with all the expirimentation they had done on previous albums?

somewhere good.

Where Queen found all their creativity I doubt we'll ever know. Freddie mercury was really a genius musician. He excelled at piano and songwriting. The magnitude of his voice goes without saying, as it is in my opinion possibly the greatest voice of all time. He could do anything vocally as this album would prove. One problem that bands with superpowers like Freddie always face is that every other member or the band will be overshadowed or just quite frankly not good. Oh, but that was not Queen. Brian may, while certainly not the greatest guitarist ever, was still amazingly good. Some of the most creative and signature riffs out there. John deacon often gets overlooked but his bass playing is really top notch and his songwriting were also very good. Roger taylor was the glue that held the band together as good a drummer as anyone could hope to meet. He even lent a hand singing every now and then when he felt like it.

Oh. I seem to have drifted off the subject. If you don't feel like it ignore those paragraphs above 'cause they weren't really important. I suppose I'll give the songs on this cd a rating.

1. Death on Two Legs - Freddie sure knew how to open an album.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is more than just "Bohemian Rhapsody" January 3, 2000
By M.M.
Format:Audio CD
Although "Bohemian Rhapsody" is the Queen song that almost every person on the planet knows, the album that it is taken from as a whole offers many other varieties of tracks, each one better than the next. Queen combines classical sounds with a rock n roll inspired outlook, from the fade-in piano of the vicious "Death on Two Legs" to the rockin' "I'm in Love with my Car." It's difficult to see exactly which direction the band is taking with this album; I believe that they were still experimenting with sound at this stage. That would explain why some of the songs (such as "...Rhapsody" and "The Prophet's Song") are so mulitlayered and over the top, while others ("You're My Best Friend," and my favorite, the sweet "Love of My Life") are a little simpler. All in all, a great rock album, one of the first that got me hooked on the Queen sound. It has a little bit of everything for many different musical tastes.

How do you improve on the perfect cd?
Remix it into 5.1 sound.
I've been picking up DVD-A discs for a while now. Some have improved on the original material (anything by Clapton or Fleetwood Mac), and others have been a waste of a disc (Foreigner's 4 is awful). I've never heard a cd that could benefit from a multi channel mix as much as "A Night At The Opera", and it truly lived up to its potential. It seems like most sound engineers really don't know what to do with the rear channels. In the otherwise great "Rumours" by Fleetwood Mac, there are some tracks where you hear nothing but distracting cymbal crashes from behind. Whoever engineered this one made terrific use of all the channels. He truly makes it feel like you're standing in the middle of the band during a performance of "Bohemian Rhapsody", and that, even if nothing else was good here, would make it well worth the purchase price. In the original mix, Roy Thomas Baker stacked Brian May's guitars and layers and layers of harmony vocal tracks on top of each other to make for a thick wall of sound. In the DVD-A mix, those same tracks are spread over all the discrete channels in your surround system to make it even more memorable.
Hot spots-- "Bohemian Rhapsody" (obviously), "The Prophet's Song", "Death On Two Legs", and "Love Of My Life".
Important note: The surround mix will play only in DTS Mode--- Make sure your player or receiver can decode it. As with all DVD-A discs, any Dolby Digital/ DTS capable player can play them, but a special DVD-A player is required to access the special features, such as the groundbreaking "Bohemian Rhapsody" video, included here and remixed into DTS 5.1.
