Yeah, I don't really like that one. I sometimes skip over it because I don't have the patience to wait for the next!

I mean, I like it, but I wouldn't consider it THE best.

Not the best one but a very good one.
and unfortunately a very short one, too. and that's the bad thing about it....it is too good to be that short.

I love that song. It's the same with Lily Of The Valley and Dear Friends; they should be longer, because they're so good.

Nice song (but I like Lilly Of The Valley more), but not the best track ever. Or, better to say, not for me.

Nevermore isn't bad..but it's certainly not one that I would consider the best.

Taking the lead from Lord Blackadder, here goes album by album;

Queen - Doin' alright
Queen II - Nevermore
Shear heart attack - Lily of the valley
A night at the opera - Love of my life
A day at the races - Toe torriate
News of the world - Who needs you / It's late
Jazz - In only seven days
The Game - Need your lonin' tonight
Flash Gordon - The hero
Hot Space - Calling all girls
The Works - Keep passing the open windows
A Kind of magic - One vision
The Miracle - Breakthru
Innuendo - These are the days of our lives
Made in Heaven - Made in Heaven

However, these do have a tendancy to change over the years!!!

It's a very Good song but I don't think it's THE best album track in the world ever.

But I love It

I think it's great. I wouldn't call it the best song I've ever heard - but it's up there. Really fun to sing, I might add. Queen II is an absolute masterpiece and Freddie wrote some of what could be argued his best. I'm more of a 'Fairy Feller's Master-Stroke' if you want my favourite song from the album.

I liked that album so much, it's really hard to pick one (as is the case with most Queen albums, actually). However, if I had to pick my favorite, it would probably be "White Queen (As It Began)".

I think it has charm because it's so short and poignant. If it was longer, maybe it would have become boring or something like that.

Totally agree. Brian once said that a good song shouldn't be longer than 3:10 minutes... So a wonderful one might be even shorter!!!!

Nevermore is one of my fav's his voice in that is so amazing such quality and range but i think it is a hard thing to really say what is the best album track, I mean there is Bo Rap witch i think hands down is still the best song ever, but also, love of my life, again such a good recording, and doing alright oooooo and of corse lilly of the valley such wonderful vocals I dont think any one can compare.
