Chapter 107: Come Sail Away

Classic rock epics

Is it a bit audacious or even disrespectful to string these ten epic masterworks together, even putting two perennial Greatest-Song-Of-All-Time contenders back to back? (“Rhapsody” and “Hotel,” if you’re wondering.) Each track here is a self-contained journey filled with peaks and valleys, from Freddie Mercury's emotional unburdening on “Somebody To Love” to the sci-fi keyboard trip of “Fly Like An Eagle.” You could live inside any of these songs, which makes it strange to hear them all in succession...just pretend they’re ten separate mini-chapters.
