"Bay area weirdo-rock trio Major Powers & the Lo-Fi Symphony have carved out a genre that is equal parts stadium rock and roll and operatic concerto. Basically, they've built their entire band around the Queen song "Bohemian Rhapsody." Few bands that came after Queen have been able to blend musical theater and balls-to-the-wall rock and roll with as much authenticity as Queen had. The Lo-Fi Symphony understands where these two worlds overlap—melodrama. They have a lot of it, but it's also passionate and it's tongue-in-cheek. In other words, the Lo-Fi Symphony are ready to pick up where Queen left off and take it to all new musical heights."
