What you guys think about Queen II album?? I think it is awesome, one of their greatest works (especially the intro "Procession"). Many people find it too epic and complicated...

Quite simply breathtaking! I didn't understand it when I first heard it, but after a few listens it became possibly my favourite Queen album (along with MIH). Now you've reminded me of how good it is I think I'll put it on in the car on my way out now. Those early Queen albums were magnificent!

Queen II is without a doubt the most strange and mystic album. I love it made me dream several times about its history. I can asure you that those dreams were awesome, like a film with the ost of Queen II. I even drawed the map and the thigs that appear on my dreams!! :D:D:D

1. Procession - I skip all instrumental songs.
2. Fatre To Son - Good songs, but gets boring pretty fast.
3. White Queen - Great piece of music!
4. Some Day One Day - Boring!
5. The Loser In The End - Avarage Roger Song.
6. Ogre Batlle - Quit powerful. Good song.
7. The Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke - Silly, but still nice to listen to.
8. Nevermore - Boring!
9. The March Of The Black Queen - Some good parts, but overall terrible!
10. Funny How Love Is - Bad song
11. Seven Seas Of Rhye - Great song!
(12.) See What A Fool I've Been - The worst Queen song ever!

I guess I'm in the minority of 5% of Queen fans with my opinion.


Not those are losers who fall, but those who don't stand up.

Queen II is Queen's finest work....White Queen, Father to Son, Procession, Fairy Feller, MOTBQ....all masterpieces...i listen to most of these songs daily..and have been for about the past 10 yrs now :) those first 3 albums defined queen...i couldn't imagine the queen catalogue without them!

It's a beauty! And the person who described 'Nevermore' as 'boring' should be taken outside and shot. Then slapped about a bit. Then stretched. Actually no - shot last. That will learn them.

So, you would happily torture someone simply because they don't like a record as much as you do?

You'll go a long way kid.

I went through a period where ALL I would listen to would be Queen II. I think it's a truly amazing album... it's just so perfect, especially "White Queen" and "The March of the Black Queen". :)

Fairy and March are absolute masterpieces, but the rest are undistinguished Queen - IMHO.
