Quote related to 'The Fairy Feller’s Master-Stroke' from 'Queen II'

We wanted to test the studio to show ourselves how far we could go. There are a couple of tracks - Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke, which isn't the greatest mix, but technically and vocally it's incredibly complex with these massed ranks of harmonies overlapping one another. It was a complex piece of music. The album really came from three years of being forged by hard work of rehearsals, playing together, working together. We all had our various influences, many of which are the same, and with our four personalities that's what came out. Freddie was fairly dominant in his writing at that point. He was the one writing the very complicated stuff. It's just the way his brain worked. He was on fire, really.
