The first two Queen Albums (Queen I and Queen II) are my favorites. These albums personify the early progressive and classic rock origins of the band and are enjoyable as raw, energetic rock and roll music. Following these albums Queen released Sheer Heart Attack which was infused with high production effects and began steering the band to a more pop/radio appeal. They certainly increased their fan base, but like other progressive rock bands of the same era, I feel they turned away from the artistic voice that set them apart from the rest. I’m not sure if it was a decision by the band or music executives that led them to turn down the bass and turn up the treble, but I wish they’d have stayed less successful and more original.
