AllMusic / Stephen Erlewine said: ‘No one in the band takes anything too seriously, otherwise the arrangements wouldn’t be as ludicrously exaggerated as they are. But the
appeal, and the influence, of A Night at the Opera is in its detailed, meticulous productions.
It’s prog rock with a sense of humor as well as dynamics, and Queen never bettered their approach anywhere else.’
Full review here. Score: 5/5.

Brian May: “We were just a four-piece, but we made a lot of noise. I’m quite shocked at
how good it was. We were incredibly tight and, at the same time – because we knew each
other so well – very loose in terms of improvisation.”

Turn Up The Volume: Theatrical, melodramatic and superbly orchestrated tour
de force with one of the best entertainers ever in rock, in the middle of all attention.
