"Great King Rat" is Freddie Mercury's first song on the album.
The Wise Man
Very good songs and very consistent -- it's an album I can play from beginning to end without wanting to skip a track.
Alan
'Queen I' is one of the twenty, or so, best debut albums of all time.

The boys had officially decided to call themselves Queen (under the forceful persuasion of Freddie Mercury) by 1971, after finally choosing the bassist they wanted (John Deacon), and come 1972, they had completed and recorded most of the tracks to this album (though the album wouldn't initially be released until 1973.) Musically speaking, the unique characteristics of (70s) Queen (a/k/a "The Queen sound") that many came to know (e.g. the opera-rock, the outlandish whimsy, the strange juxtapositions of gender-bending/vaudeville/opera/metal) CAN be heard here, just in rawer, unpolished and underdeveloped terms. But other than that, the album is mostly a smorgasbord of classic heavy metal, psychedelia and progressive rock.
But, despite it being a work in progress (for Queen, anyway), the album is strong and solid on it's own. That's probably one of the most [standard] statements ever made, but for the first time, I'm tempted to apply it here. I really think if Queen were not to evolve or make another album after this, they still would have been recognized as having sophisticated musical talent - whether by critics (puh!) or by other musicians. Ironically, that's one of the few 'gifts' I noticed Queen to possess: not totally reaching their peak in a certain setting, yet what they come up with, seems to be strong in character and golden on it's own. "Keep Yourself Alive" was the 'somewhat' popular track on here, as Brian May in particular is playing some crunchy, yet sophisticated licks on his self-made guitar.

It is far too easy when discussing QUEEN's first LP, to throw tons of adjectives around describing the album's brilliance. I was quite stunned the first time I heard this album. As a rabid metal fan, I was skeptical about Queen. I considered them pompous, glammy, and too commercial. That was BEFORE I listened to the first three Queen albums(Queen, Queen II, and Sheer Heart Attack). It is unfortunate that there are only two or three songs off the first three LP's that really get any steady airplay. I think it is for this reason that many metal heads are unaware of how awesome early Queen was, and particularily, how rad Queen's debut was. Brian May's guitar work on "Queen" (1973) is arguably the most exciting post-Hendrix guitar work of the 70's. May's guitar is layered and blended, infusing classical, jazz, funk, and beautiful acoustic passages, over molten metal fretwork. It is easy to hear May's influence on Tipton and Downing(Judas Priest), Roth(Scorpions), Schenker(UFO), and Y. Malmsteen. Mercury's vocals are equally dynamic and always enthralling, as he weaves complex tales as well as pure rock lyrics. There isn't one weak moment on Queen's debut, thus making it essential for all rock fans. One could spend decades listening to this debut. It offers infinite enjoyment. So if you are a rock fan, take a chance and buy this album. If you are a metal head but do not yet own Queen's debut, get it quick, as you are missing out on probably the SINGLE MOST INFLUENTIAL METAL ALBUM OF ALL TIME, rivaled only by the innovations of early Black Sabbath, Deep Purple, Uriah Heep, and Led Zeppelin!!! So roll a joint, sit back, crank it up, and enjoy some 'modern times rock 'n' roll' !!!!

Queen's first album, and one of their finest. The opening "Keep Yourself Alive" track is absolutely one of the most powerful (and empowering!) tunes I have ever heard; great to wake up to, great to work out to. Of all the songs on this album, "Keep Yourself Alive" seems to have gotten the most radio play on the classic rock stations, and rightfully so.
That is not to say that whole album isn't solid; the entire CD is one of the best debut albums ever. That 70s "progressive rock" aura really shines in songs like "My Fairy King" and "Liar."
Other underrated gems include "King Rat," a thundering cynical ode, yet bearing the same energy as "Keep Yourself Alive," and the instrumental "Seven Seas of Rhye," which is a hint of a more thorough and satisfying version of the tune that winds up on their following album "Queen II."
Queen was such an impressive group that you owe it to yourself not to settle for any of their "Greatest Hits" compilations. Every album up to their 1978 release "Jazz" are excellent. This is a good pick to start the collection.

Sadly, Queen has always been merited by their FM friendly hits rather than by the qualities of their albums. Believe me, there is much more to Queen than what comes out of radio waves or VH 1!
Rather than buying greatest hits compilations you should obtain studio albums that cover various stages of their prolific career. Queen I is in this respect among the essential first.
"Queen" is a heavy metal album, and a defining one at that. Brian May's guitar is brutal throughout. Roger Taylor's drumming is frantic, yet to the point. Freddie Mercury's qualities go without saying and John Deacon's bass is fat and steady in the best John Paul Jones and Entwistle tradition.
The production is of course not as crisp as any of the later albums, but this is not necessarily a drawback. Gives the tunes all the more a rougher, livelier edge. The album has this undefinable energetic, youthful and earnest pulse to it. Makes your blood boil!
The songs: "Keep yourself alive" - catchy hard rock anthem and a stage favorite for years. Addictive guitar riff!!
"Doing Allright" - Angelic voice and piano from Freddie during opening bars serve as ominous "quiet before the storm" passage as Brian May furisously roars in with axe attacks all over the place.
"Great King Rat" - Heavy metal crunch with numerous themes and mother riffs. Heroic Mercury.
"My Fairy King" - Art pop-rock. Dreamy listening sensation as piano sounds, drums and guitars effortlessly seem to melt together towards the end of the track.
"Liar" - This is my favorite Queen song...period. A loud mixture of styles, but with feet solidly planted on heavy metal soil. THIS IS WHAT QUEEN WAS ALL ABOUT!
