It's been 40 years since some of these songs were released and they still sound so amazing

well....yeah

70's Queen imo, was much edgier,raw,undecided.

mid eighties Queen became too polished for my taste

perhaps I should have titled it, early Queen Music

I bought Sheer Heart Attack the week it was released when I was in the Army. We then proceeded to wear the grooves out in the barracks on a daily basis.

Death on Two Legs
Sheer Heart Attack (the song)

Supposedly SHA was an attempt by Taylor to show the punks how easy it is, and how it's done. That's the limey urban legend, anyway.

I think they fooled you, brah. Listen to "Stone Cold Crazy" arguably their "rawest" and "edgiest" song - it seems edgier, raw, undecided, as you say - and it is arguably the first speed metal song ever recorded.

However, much like all of that stuff, if you listen closely - there's nothing raw or "unpolished" to it. That sound was built upon by some later acts, the NWOBHM, particularly cite glam acts and Queen (as well as the usual suspects, Led Zeppelin) as powerful influences, and that, in turn, led to the entire hair metal scene of the 1980s. Virtually everything audible on any Queen recording was deliberate - Mercury and May, particularly, were extremely meticuluous and did not leave much to chance, even in their early 20s. Deacon and Taylor are in the running for most underrated rhythm section in rock history.

I meant their ideas were raw as was their musical direction. Never said they weren't masters in the studio or were shitty musicians that got better over time. I'm well aware of Brian Mays prowess with a guitar even in Smile.

sorry brah

I'm tracking. My favorite band, Def Leppard, cites Queen, along with T-Rex, Mott the Hoople, David Bowie and Led Zeppelin as their key influences (and all of these groups, especially the Brits don't have to say, "And of course, the Beatles"). Queen's sound would be reflected in the subequent waves, particularly NWOBHM (and hair metal, as I suggested) and AOR of the mid-to-late 70s.
