Strange how you rank Love Kills so low... you were not around in the 80s, were you?  :)

1) Barcelona (the album)

I like it more than any Queen album.

And then in no particular order Time, In my defence, The great pretender, Mr Bad Guy, and many others which I don't like but are incredible vocal performances.

I think Barcelona wins by far.  I like some of the others but they're not worth putting into order.

I could never get any of the solo stuff untill the '90s in America, but I did hear the track BARCELONA after it first came out.

My fave solo Freddie tracks are:
BARCELONA
THE GREAT PRETENDER
THE FALLEN PRIEST
LIVING ON MY OWN

Q fan since I was 4 or 5. Listened to my brother's vinyl albums in the '70s.
