Best: Opera, Jazz, Races, Innuendo, Sheer (possibly in that order)
Worst: Works, Magic, Hot Space, Flash and Miracle

I don't count MIH as I consider it a compilation rather than an album. And I don't count TCR since IMO it's not a Queen album.

Best:

1. Innuendo
Queen finally returned to its roots.  Plenty of heartwrenching melodies and impressive musicianship.  A solid album. 

2. A Day at the Races
A pure classic which is the culmination of the more "artsy" side of Queen.  Sadly overlooked by many.

3. Queen II
Loaded with drama -- tense, cohesive, and, at times, metalicious.  A powerful album from start to finish.

4. A Night at the Opera
Their masterpiece.  Enough said.

5. Sheer Heart Attack
Queen finally found their  classic sound.  One of Queen's finest works.

Worst:

1. Jazz
Fantastic songs.  Terrible production and track order.  Great album, but it could have been superb!  Kind of a let down, which is why it's number 1 on my list.

2. The Game
Brilliant singles and production, but as an album it's sort of stale and not as amazing as its predecessors.

3.  The Works
Again, brilliant singles.  But the album as a whole = blah.

4. A Kind of Magic
Perhaps it should have been a full fledged soundtrack.  The album seems lacking!

5. Hot Space
Hey, I love this album.  I think side 1 an interesting take on funk and disco and side 2 is still in touch with the hard rock side of Queen.  Extremely underrated, but still, it did a great disservice to Queen's reputation at the time.  So it had to be on my list.

They are not albums. And even then, calling an album with BoRhap, Somebody To Love, Killer Queen and other great tracks on it one of the worst albums is just plain nonsense.

Hello I want to tell you what I think about the Queen. The Queen is the best music band. Roger, John, Brian and Freddie created great songs in history of rock music . I don't like U2, Rolling stones, Let Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Rihanna,Nirvana, The doors and Elvis Presley, because they created rubbish. Queen had style. Freddie had heaven vocal, he was handsome and he was greatest showman. Modern music is horrible. I still don't know how many songs recorded from 1988 to 1991. They created much more music. Minimally 100 songs , Maximally 200 songs. You can tell, that I am idiot and funny newbie, but I thing, that members of Queen had songs with vocal of Freddie Mercury. Part of this songs came from solo albums released later by Roger Taylor and Brian May. Fun in space (1981),Strange frontier(1984), Shove it (the cross 1988), Mad, bad and dangerous you know(1990), Blue rock (1991), Happiness (1994), Back to the light (1992). Most this songs was composed (created ) before the death of Freddie Mercury. Ill leader of Queen wanted to record much more music before his death. Freddie was infected in 1984 or in 1985. He had HIV in this time.
