Unfortunately, many great albums become shadowed by the more popular ones: the albums that define a band. A Night At The Opera had done this with A Day At The Races, and although they're both musical joyrides, A Day At The Races never comes to mind when considering the incredible albums of Queen's music. All 10 songs on the album have something different to offer to the listener, from the edgy "Tie Your Mother Down," to a personal favorite of mine," The Millionaire Waltz" to even, the harmonious masterpiece, "Somebody To Love." the album is an emotional rollercoaster, and I would even claim for A Day At The Races to have the most amount of love songs on a Queen album: "The Millionaire Waltz," "You Take My Breath Away," "You And I," "Somebody To Love," Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy," and "Teo Torriatte" all being those cheesy (yet catchy) love songs we don't typically see of Queen. The album is quite simply a reflection of A Night At The Opera: it's extravagant, catchy and even edgy at times. If you're the type to love glam rock, then this album (along with many others by Queen) will surely be one you enjoy. 5/5 @ShowMeTheMonet! of the Teen Review Board at the Hamilton Public Library
