Weak and over-produced, if this band are our brightest hope for the future, then we are committing rock and roll suicide.
As drew to a close, public reaction to Queen II had been enthusiastic. In , the Post-Tribune ranked Queen II 9th in an article covering "albums that should be in everyone's record collection, but aren't. Combined with Freddie Mercury's underrated keyboard work, Brian May's ringing leads and pristine riffs created a backdrop for songs that were by turns ferocious and elegant. The review observed the album's heaviness and stated "this never feels as fantastical as Genesis or Uriah Heep ", concluding " Queen II is one of the favorites of their hardcore fans".
Queen had so exhausted themselves with the progressive rock style after recording this album that they abandoned the sound entirely for the next one. He wrote: "Stylistically there was nothing here that wasn't on the superior debut, and you can hear the band struggling with the traditional 'difficult second album' problems They had pushed their rock and metal roots as far as they could, and were clearly looking to jump off the train and expand their horizons.
It's probably for this reason that the album lacked the sparkle and bite of Queen and the audacity of the subsequent Sheer Heart Attack. Other rock musicians have praised the album. Rob Halford of Judas Priest cites Queen II as one of his favourite albums, saying it is "nothing but good songs" and stating "Ogre Battle" as a particular favourite.
Whenever their newest record would come out and have all these other kinds of music on it, at first I'd only like this song or that song. But after a period of time listening to it, it would open my mind up to so many different styles. I really appreciate them for that. That's something I've always wanted to be able to achieve". It's so over the top, so many vocal and guitar track overdubs — total Queen overload.
I loved it. I loved the cool, weird, ambiguous songs about Freddie's sexuality and the way it shifts from heavy to beautiful ballads. But we were fascinated with these types of things The most important thing to me was the Queen II album going into the charts — especially satisfying that, since the first one didn't do so well.
It's nice to see some recognition for your work though I don't usually worry too much. Roger tends to worry more about what's happening on that side. When Queen II came out it didn't connect with everyone.
A lot of people thought we'd forsaken rock music. Nowadays people say: "Why don't you play like Queen II? It's not perfect, it has the imperfections of youth and the excesses of youth, but I think that was our biggest single step ever.

Led Zeppelin and The Who are probably in Queen II somewhere, because they were among our favourite groups, but what we are trying to do differently from either of those groups [is] this sort of layered sound.
The Who had the open chord guitar sound I also wanted to build up textures behind the main melody lines. We were trying to push studio techniques to a new limit for rock groups — it was fulfilling all our dreams, because we didn't have much opportunity for that on the first album.
