Sheer Heart Attack (1974)

Sheer Heart Attack is the third album by the British rock group Queen, released in November 1974. It was produced by Queen and Roy Thomas Baker and distributed by EMI in the United Kingdom, and Elektra in the United States.

The album launched the band to mainstream popularity both in the United Kingdom and internationally: the first single, “Killer Queen” reached No. 2 in the British charts and provided Queen with their first Top 20 hit in the United States, peaking at No. 12 on the Billboard singles chart. Sheer Heart Attack was also the first Queen album to hit the US Top 20, peaking at No. 12 in 1975. Digressing from the progressive themes featured on their first two albums, Sheer Heart Attack featured more conventional rock tracks and marked a step towards the classic Queen sound. In recent years, it has been listed by multiple publications as one of the band’s best works.
