The QueenTest™ Vol. 2 – The Soaring ’70s

by Peter Wendel
We value your input so please make comments at the end of this post.

The overwhelming consensus of our readers is that we made the first volume of the QueenTest™ too easy. Some have even said, “way too easy!” Go ahead and pat yourselves on the back but don’t get too comfortable. This second volume – focusing on Queen’s stellar output from the ’70s – will prove much more challenging, even for the hardest-core fans.

The debut of the QueenTest™ just dipped a toe into the pool, the second volume throws you right into the deep end. To get a passing grade, you will need to be intimately familiar with the band’s early material – from the debut album, Queen (1973), through Jazz (1978).

Now it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work. Don’t forget to turn up the volume!

Good luck, ladies and gents.
