With the pier-front echoing finale of ‘Seven Seas Of Rhye’ barely four months old, Queen embarked on recording what would become Sheer Heart Attack. Having laughed off any thoughts of the so-called difficult second album syndrome, the band were moving towards the very top of their game.
Whereas some bands have found their third album an even greater challenge, Queen’s Sheer Heart Attack would herald their arrival as a major musical force. ‘Killer Queen’, the album’s outstanding single, was an instant classic that soared to No.2 in the UK chart and No.12 on the Billboard chart in America – the band’s first foray into the US Top 20. The album would go platinum and was proof that this was a band that was even greater than the sum of their considerable parts.
