  • This is just about the single greatest thing I've ever heard. I first heard it only a little over 24 hours ago and now it has a super high amount of plays for a song so long. I've never been so quick to Love a song before.
  • Incredibly underrated song. Probably my favourite of all time. [3]
  • Incredibly underrated song. Probably my favourite of all time. [2]
  • Progressive? Rock? Really?
  • So good. I especially love the canon part with only Freddie's voice. Then Brian's guitar kicks in. Awesome.
