Queen II is the second studio album by the British rock band Queen. It was released on 8 March 1974 by EMI Records at midnight in the UK and by Elektra Records in the US. It was recorded at Trident Studios and Langham 1 Studios, London, in August 1973 with co-producers Roy Thomas Baker and Robin Geoffrey Cable, and engineered by Mike Stone

When the Queen II album came out in 1974, those who heard it were impressed and spiritually uplifted. Queen had arrived in style and Freddie could give up his weekend job and concentrate on the great times that lay ahead. Published on. March 8, 2019. What became Queen II was done and dusted in that hot month. Realising that as songwriters Mercury and May had radically different lyrical agendas – Brian the guitarist preferring a personal or emotional slant, while Freddie the singer liked to operate in realms of the phantasmagorical – it was decided to give the record a loose concept, splitting the material into ‘White’ and ‘Black’ sides to match the light and shade of the songs.

Queen is the debut studio album by the British rock band Queen, released on 13 July 1973 by EMI Records in the UK and by Elektra Records in the US. It was recorded at Trident Studios and De Lane Lea Music Centre, London, with production by Roy Thomas Baker, John Anthony and the band members themselves. The album was influenced by heavy metal and progressive rock. The lyrics are based on a variety of topics, including folklore ("My Fairy King") and religion ("Jesus").

In one regard, Queen II does indeed provide more of the same thing as on the band's debut. Certainly, of all the other albums in Queen's catalog it bears the closest resemblance to its immediate predecessor, particularly in its lean, hard attack and in how it has only one song that is well-known to listeners outside of their hardcore cult: in this case, it's "Seven Seas of Rhye," which is itself more elliptical than "Keep Yourself Alive," the. big song from the debut.

As soon as sessions for Queen finished in March 1973, the band took a brief break before jumping back into the studios to work on their follow-up. The creatively fertile band, bursting with ideas, entered Trident Studios in August to lay down songs that would become their second album, unimaginatively titled Queen II. (Brian later admitted that the band considered calling it Over The Top, but this idea was discarded.
