I agree. I don't listen to Queen as much as I used to but when I do, it brings it all back just how bloody good some of their stuff is.
Come on you Tigers.

Some of the stuff on Queen II irks me slightly if I go out of my to listen to it too often, but when a track just comes up on shuffle or something it can really stun me. TMOTBQ is like a mini-symphony in itself.

Queen II is the most interesting album. Songs range from their most complex, heaviest songs to their best ballads, like White Queen and Nevermore.


March Of The Black Queen. The song is really groovy at the end, and every time I wish it would last a couple of minutes longer, but then it ends.

This is the catchiest part I think:

"Forget your singalongs and your lullabies
Surrender to the city of the fireflies
Dance with the devil in beat with the band
To hell with all you hand-in-hand
But now is the time to be gone - forever... "
That time will come, one day you'll see, when we can all be
friends

Didn't see this thread before, but I've been playing it on repeat the last two days in my car.

Anyone who wants more (or arguably less) from this song might find this fascinating:

Is that just individual tracks from the mixing desk? If so, how come there's so much leakage from the other tracks (and they're all reverb-ed to buggery).


No, that's obtained by playing the stereo tracks together in mono and reversing the phase on one to get the difference between the two. As a result you end up with bits like the reverb of a track which is removed. There's also software (used and sold as karaoke software) which removes anything right in the centre of the stereo image leaving just the extreme right and left of the original file.

As Freddie once said "It's very much the precursor to Bohemian Rhapsody!"

I don't think I'll ever get bored of Queen II, as I think I play it just enough to be blown away by it, and then starve myself of it until I can no longer resist playing it again.

Tip: :idea:

If you take a listen to the Deep Cuts CD, March Of The Black Queen has been given a proper ending, instead of the album version that is connected to Funny How Love Is.

So if you want to download MOTBQ as MP3 to your MP3player, or iPod, I would suggest the Deep Cuts version.

Go check it out :cool:

Kind of you, but I think you'll find few here who don't already know this.

Awesome song and probably best song of Queen II. I remember not long ago while driving my car with some friends, the song Innuendo was in the Cd player, and one friend who had not listened so much Queen said "oh this song has so many tempo changes from fast to slow"... and me and another friend who are die hard fans of Queen thought "well, if you listened to a song called "The march of the black queen" you'd know what are real tempo changes in a song.. ;)

great song!
