My Favourite Queen Albums from the 70s has to be Queen I, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack and A Night at the Opera. News of the World I like too and A Day at the Races is good too and i find it hard to credit Jazz as the worst of the 70s. It just has to be done by personal choice but my Least favourite is Jazz despite the album contains some of my favourite Queen numbers.
Queen I: 10/10
Queen II: 10 Stars is not enough
Sheer Hear Attack: 10/10
A Night at the Opera: 10/10

A Day at the Races: 7/10
News of the World: 7/10
Jazz: 7/10

Well, thank you for this valuable information.

So the first three albums are 10/10, but the ones that really broke them through are only 7s?

Thanks, big fan.  I will mark my albums accordingly as everyone else should do... right now.

Good topic
All the albus have their strengths but, in terms of songwriting and production, Jazz must be the weakest

FAVORITE Queen album has got to be The Works since the topic got changed, through several posts, in to what you think of each album. I love the sound on The Works. It's '80s and whatnot but it doesnt sound like shit which is more than I can say about some other albums from 1983/84. I hate Flash Gordon. It is the only album I own ive never fully listened to. Maybe if i play it while watching the film???

Queen I always seemed like a band trying to find itself. It holds a special place to Queen fans, but it hasn't held up well.

Best 70's album? There's a hell of a lot of good ones, so personal taste rules. It's a tossup of II, SHA, ANATO, and DATR for me. All wonderful and unique.

Queen I - 3/10
Queen II - 6/10
SHA - 7/10
ANATO - 8/10
ADATR - 6/10 (good songs, but too derivative and formulaic already)
NOTW - 8/10 (saved the band from becoming an eternal copy of itself)
Jazz - 6/10
The Game - 6/10
-------------------> End of the band I relate to the most --------
Hot Space - 2/10
Flash Gordon - 1/10
The Works - 2/10
Kind of Magic - 3/10
Miracle - 1/10
Innuendo - 3/10
------->
TCR - 0.5/10

PS: 6 being a very good note and meaning that the album is still above the average.
