It's got to be A Night At The Opera, A Kind of Magic, Innueno and Made in Heaven. If you listen to Innuendo and Heaven, Queen are trying to say something (well, thats what I think). Whilst Magic and Opera are just great. Anyone agree?

It depends on my mood on what album I like the best. Right now it's Queen 2.

Keeping in mind that I don't have The Miracle, Hot Space, or Made In Heaven.

1) A Night at The Opera
2) Queen II
3) A Day at the Races
4) Jazz
5) The Works

I'm not really thrilled with A Kind Of Magic, although I love Who Wants To Live Forever.

To my mind Innuendo is the best one, followed by Magic.
These two records represent all what was Queen about: musical virtouosity and just great lyrics.
On the 3rd place I`d chosen Hot Space :-) simply a great album (different in comparison to other Queen stuff)

Well, it kind of depends on my mood, but here's my list:

1. Innuendo (I agree, they definitely went out in style!!)
2. Queen II
3. A Night at the Opera (Would be higher, but there's a couple of weak songs)
4. The Game
5. Live at Wembley--Great live album (I haven't yet gotten Live at the Bowl, so I don't know which is better)

There's actually not any album I really dislike.

A Day at the Races - I have said it before, I'll say it again. I think this is the best Queen album ever recorded.
After that I think my favourites would be
Queen II
Innuendo (despite Delilah, All God's People and Hitman)
ANATO
AKOM
ahh, it depends on the mood.. Tomorrow the list would be different, but the top spot would remain.

Difficult, the first two in my list I will always consider the pinnacle of Queen's work, the others change from time to time. So this is it right now:

Queen II
Innuendo

News of the World
A day at the races
Queen

Tough question!!

A Day at the Races - brilliant stuff
Innuendo - Deliah tends to grow on you...

Live killers - great too.

For all round enjoyment, I like GH11 - it has everything I need.
