What's your favorite album cover i was looking at the collection and i stumbled upon A kind of magic and thought wow what a great cover for an album, i remember when i was about 12 and in school being very proud of being a queen fan and that this cover was like no other around and also it made wearing the t-shirts more noticeable too.

Queen have always been very inventive with their album covers haven't they what's your fave and why.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

till the end of time.

My favorite is Innuendo, followed closely by Queen II. The first suits the album so well, while the second is purely iconic.

Queen has never had particularly great album covers. My favorite is "News of the World." That's a pretty neat cover.

I've always loved Hot Space, but Queen II and A Night At The Opera are just iconic, like Lester said. I'm not a huge fan of The Miracle, though. It's inventive, but it's kind of creepy!

Races, or Opera.


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.

as far as straight design/artwork goes, I give all my votes to Jazz. Thats a hypnoticly baddass cover, and the tiny deatails of the pink naked bicycling chicks around the edges is hot shit. i want a gigantic Jazz poster.

News of the World. I bought it in '77 and played it to death and always loved the cover. So much so that I sent my Astounding Science Fiction magazine to Kelly Freas to autograph it. RIP Kelly.

I like the ANATO and ADATR covers pretty much at the moment, but the others are great too.. its hard to decide..

my favorite is News of the World

I think the worst has to be A Kind of Magic. The artwork is awful.
