Episode 92 - Queen - A Day at the Races

August 26th, 2017

Today we close out August with our third foray into Queen's discography, this time discussing their fifth studio album, 1976's "A Day at the Races". Sandwiched between two mega-selling albums, "A Day at the Races", while still going platinum, could be seen as a bit of a disappointment when compared to "A Night at the Opera" and "News of the World". But what of this album? Was it an under-appreciated gem (or as under-appreciated as a platinum album could be), or was it a rushed effort and a misstep? Tune in to find out.

Was it an art rock masterpiece or was it the over-produced dregs of glam rock? Tune in to find out. We also discuss our favorite moments from episodes thirty-one to forty.
