Night at the Opera marked the first major transition into epic spectacle overproduction. Way too many falsetto vocal backdrops and guitar overlays for my taste: tune up the bass! Not that I don’t love it, I do, it’s just not my favorite.

Surprising factoid: Brian May used a shilling as a guitar pick on many Sheer Heart Attack tracks — the scratchy picky sound you hear …

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
