Sheer Heart Attack is the third vinyl record by British rock band Queen, released in November 1975, and reissued in September of 2015. The LP is played at half speed to ensure the top sound quality possible.. The album launched Queen to mainstream popularity both in the UK and internationally: the first single, “Killer Queen” reached No. 2 in the British charts and provided them with their first top 20 hit in the US, peaking at No. 12 on the Billboard singles chart. Sheer Heart Attack was also the first Queen album to hit the US top 20, peaking at No. 12 in 1975. Digressing from the progressive themes featured on their first two albums, this album featured more conventional rock tracks and marked a step towards the classic Queen sound. In recent years, it has been listed by multiple publications as one of the band’s best works.
