Lyrics — 7
The lyrics on this aren't really what stand out, it's the sound. Various Queen songs have lyrical meanings, and some other classics like "Layla," a song Eric Clapton wrote about someone he knew. But really, the lyrics on this album don't stand out at all.
Overall Impression — 8
This album has some of the greatest rock songs in history. Nobody can deny that. It's definately a must buy for any rock fan. The sound on this varies from soft to hard, meaning that it'd suit most people. It even has some blues on it with the likes of "Johnny B. Goode," a Chuck Berry classic. If I lost this album or it got stolen, I'd definately buy another.
