Big fan of their second album (see earlier post) - to my taste a beguiling blend of progressive and catchy melodic. This third is not as adventurous, more towards glam rock and pop. Same combination of creativity and beauty, just a little more restraint. So even if another kind of trip, still a joyride. I've seen it been called a spadework to "A Night At The Opera", but that's always in retrospective. For us who were there already before ANATO surfaced this is the true original. That may have a better layout, more meticolous production and flashier outcome, yet the core is here already - the great guitars, vocals and melodic songwirting. For exemple I can't find anything they did later more beautiful than "Killer Queen" or "In The Lap Of The Gods...revisited". Not that I dislike ANATO, just getting a lot more connection here. I'm thinking same relation as "Revolver" to "Sgt Pepper", of which I've always prefered the former. First US on Elektra (7E-1026). Frequently issued and reissued on vinyl, cassette and CD through the years. Premiere UK had label as shown here, fully laminated Garrods & Lofthouse cover with title both on spine and top seam and lyric/credit inner. (QÄN*)
