Tell me which was your Favourite album and why.

For me, Queen II is phenominal. Althought raw in places (which I like), Queen managed to produce something so new and different, that I think it was the most ambitious album they ever made. The drumming was fantastic the lyrics were incredible and the Guitar playing was awesome.

Your turn..........

I think my 2 favourites are Innuendo and Made In Heaven. I just can't decide which one is better between them! They are both just amazing!

It changes from time to time, with any band. But in general terms I think, in Queen, I`d stick to the first one I bought, which I remember I spent all the bloody night playing over and over because I liked it a lot. Btw this year it`s its 30th birthday


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

My favorite is The Game, it was my first real album and I just love the sound, though some people hate the synths on it.

My fave album is sheer heart attack followed very closely in a tied 2nd place queen2/anato but i think if you play a certain album that you like you think that this album is really good as well.

For instance i played the game this morning(no pun intended) and then i played queen2 and thought wow what a difference,the game has good hits cltcl,aobtd saveme etc but the feel of the album is broken in places where as queen2 especially side2 or for really die hard fans the black side as it was known when released it has a more complete and cohesive feel to it.

Just my opinion but they are all fabulous in thier own way.

I honestly couldn't chose one from the 2nd to 5th albums.

Why? I think they made the best music during that period.

After those belive it or not, I like Flash!!!

Oh Crap.. this again?

Well.. I guess The Game, because it was the one that got me started in my love affair with Queen. but there are a LOT of GREAT albums, except for the POS called THE FLASH GORDON SOUNDTRACK, that one just does not sit with me.

I am always torn between A Night at the Opera and A Day at the Races. I love them both so much because I realllllly like every song on there.

Right now I love News Of the World, it's much more serious than the other albums, which I like.

Today, my choice is:

1) A Day at the Races
2) Innuendo

But I will never forget the days when I discovered Queen II. I've never felt that way again.

It's a 3 way tie between Queen II, A Night At The Opera, and The Game. Queen II has phenomenal music, lyrics, and vocals. ANATO is just a masterpiece, and The Game was, arguably, a "new beginning" for their sound.

i think queen 2, ANATO and innuendo are beyond the rest.
The most boring queen albums to me would be:
a kind of magic: find it damn boring sometimes
the works: this one is just a bit better than the above.
hot space: would be a dissapointment if under perssure and las palabras weren´t included.
flash gordon: well, not really an album.

My favourite album is A night at the Opera.Like "Sgt.Pepper's lonely hearts club band" for The Beatles or "Dark side of the Moon" for Pink Floyd.Perfect songs and perfect setlist,like a classical suite,everything is in the right place.Incerdible performance by the band and Freddie simlpy stratosferic.Is the perfect synthesis:Best band with best album with best song ever,Bohemian Rhapsody...I couldn't ask more from an album!And of course the best ballad ever,Love of my life...


Freddie Mercury.

A wonderful human being and simply the greatest singer,performer and composer of our times.
