What can I say? Another classic album. Freddie’s solo is total music from beginning to end. Once again, difficult changes and he makes music out of them instead of just running the changes—this solo is so lyrical and melodic, it could be vocalesed by someone. Plus, Freddie is just ‘digging into the time’ like he’s carrying a shovel with him.
