Here's the deal: I have Queen, Sheer Heart-Attack, ANATO, ADATR, News of the World, Live Killers, and Greatest Hits I+II. What should I buy. I'm considering Made in Heaven, Queen II, or The Game. Tell me what you think.

Made in heaven : Emotional album with alot of great tracks some of them are remakes by the band and Freddies versions of his/others solo material.

Song Highlights: Made in heaven, Mother love(Freddies last song), You don't fool me, I was born to love you.

Queen II : To me it has a gothic and dark feeling to it similar to Queen "the 1st album" in the songs style but ALOT better and an awesome album in all.

Song Highlights: White queen, Ogre battle, Nevermore, March of the black queen.

The game: A rocky album with great tracks, includes 2 of their major hits in it and it's also the first album for Queen to use synths in it and the result turned out to be excellent.

Song Highlights: Play the game, Need your loving tonight, Save me, Crazy little thing called love, Dragon attack.

Conclusion: if you really want my opinion BUY THEM ALL AT ONCE :D but if you want to go one step at a time then start with Queen II then The game then MIH. They are all worth it and I now you're gonna buy them all sooner or later !!but you should start in that respective 'cause these albums are like a story i dont think when you read one you start from the last chapter then move the beginning.......u get my point.

I know I've babbled alot but i hope i was a bit helpful !!

take care




that's enough about me, now, what do you think of me ?

Queen II or Hot Space...

Actually, I suggest Jazz.

I would save Made In Heaven for last, sort of to finish all the albums. I would get Queen II, but The Game is good. It's not as solid as some of the other albums, but it's still a great album.

Yeah have to agree, MIH I would personally purchase last as good as it is, it's not really a FULL Queen album.


Hot Space wasn't all THAT bad - was it?

Brandon - In my book MIH is better than Q2. In my survey a while back (based on individual songs, only the FG, HS, tM, Q and J rated lower (see below link) than Q2.

http://home.comcast.net/~vantricers/Song_by_author_album_era_synth.doc

Why? In my opinion, it is because the White side of Q2 is mediocre (for Queen).

Don't get me wrong, Q2 is a very good album (and the Black side is a classic).

Zeni, I like the way you think. And normally, I'd say that too, But, I see Queen, ..., Sheer Heart Attack, and I want that person to fill the gap. ;)

Yes, YES, like I said before... Queen II. I mean, you CANNOT beat "Ogre Battle":

"the great big-a fight is over" -- listen for it. :D

According to David Richards (if my memory is right) the last song Freddie recorded was 'A Winter's Tale', if anyone can confirm it please.


An interview? Oh, don't be ridiculous...

A Winter's Tale was the last one Freddie wrote, but Mother Love was the last one he sang.
