Just bought this album with the Bohemian Rhapsody video cover and played it without looking at the case. There's no Bohemian Rhapsody!! I like some of this stuff anyways but where is this classic song if not here?

Bohemian Rhapsody is on A Night At The Opera, so that's why you didn't find it on Queen II. They just recreated the Queen II pose for the Bohemian Rhapsody video.

Oh, thanks. I'll get to that one soon. Trying to get the albums in order. One good thing came from this though. I got Seven Seas Of Rye with words now! On the first album it doesn't have any. Next album is Sheer Heart Attack. I can't wait to get that one. It's one of my favorite songs!

Sheer Heart Attack is on News Of The World, though. But the Sheer Heart Attack album is great, one of my favorites.

Don't worry, you made a good purchase. In the minds of many fans (mine included) Queen II is the only album that can rival A Night at the Opera for the title of "best Queen album."

I never realized how difficult it was to purchase Queen CDs in order.

Mainly when you live in Mongolia, lol. You can't say Queenzoners are not helpful to newbies :)


I do not want any google ads here.

Thank you all for your help. I checked the track lists online and got familiarized with them. I can't believe Bicycle Race isn't on A Day At The Races! Man, what kind of mind games were they trying to play anyway?

You should be proud of yourselves. You've passed the newbie test with flying colours!

Though actually it just started as a joke. I'll go back to my usual name now.

Ha! I knew it had to be a joke after the thing about 'Sheer Heart Attack'. Glad I refrained from posting and falling victim to this.

Thanks for the laughs though. So who are you?

I had a feeling this was a joke. Too bad I didn't pay any attention to that feeling! So who are you? :D

That was a really funny post. You might not believe it, but I met those problems when I became a Queen fan.

One of the only songs I knew was Bicycle Race, so I was eager to get the album which had Bicycle on it. I was positive it was on A day at the races. When I got it i was surprised and disappointed. Now I love the album though :)


Basically blind em and deaf em in the first 10 minutes, and while they are recovering from that put in the less good songs

Queen II and ANATO? I thought the best abum is Hot Space...


Yeah funny, but as it happnes, Hot Space actually IS one of my favorite Queen albums. In my top 5. Maybe even top 3.

I don't know if I would put Hot Space as one of my top 5, but I've realized it's not so bad. I love Back Chat, Life Is Real, Las Palabras De Amor and Calling All Girls.

I love them all, especially Dancer and Staying Power. The only exceptions are Body Language and Cool Cat, which are...not so good.

I don't mind Hot Space. Dancer, Life is Real and I am Brian May, the BRAINS OF THIS BAND really do rock.

Generally I like Hot Space a lot, it's groovy :)

But there are some tracks, like Las Palabras and Life Is Real imo that could have been left out..
