Queen - Sheer Heart Attack.jpg

Sheer Heart Attack is the third studio album by Queen. It was released on 1974-11-01 on vinyl and produced by Queen and Roy Thomas Baker. The album uses strong glam rock and progressive rock themes with an over all hard rock sound. This is the last album to contain Freddie's mythical rock songs, all subsequent albums feature songs with more secular themes.

This is the very first album I ever bought for myself with my own money, and remains one of my favorite albums ever. Every time I hear songs off this album I think of playing the game Diablo and Doom II: Hell On Earth because I would listen to the album while playing those two games. While many of the songs make me think of various areas of each game, two songs in particular remind me of two specific areas of the game. "Now I'm Here" reminds me of level 12 in Doom II and "She Makes Me" reminds me of Tristram in Diablo.
