I've been a fan of Queen for over a year now and so far, I've only got six Queen albums [A Night At The Opera, The Game, A Kind of Magic, The Miracle, Innuendo and Made In Heaven], Brian May's Back To The Light album and the We Will Rock You musical CD.

I was just woundering what you lot think of the other Queen albums, Brian's albums, Roger's albums, Freddie's albums, The Cross albums etc and which album I should get next.

Kind Regards

queen II blows EVERYTHING else away - honestly - if you don't buy another queen album buy queen II

you can listen to fairy-feller/nevermore/march of the black queen and hear the origins of Bo Rhap

and when you've played queen II to death - because once you get it you will, get Queen I - liar, doin alright, night comes down GKR and jesus are great songs

Just buy EVERYTHING!

My personal favourites are Queen II, A Day At The Races, Jazz, The Works, The Miracle, and Innuendo.

Also there's The Queen Symphony by Tolga Kashif and Barcelona... Mr Bad Guy is really good.

As I said, get them all :-)

Queen II
It's by far the most interresting to listen to.

For Queen albums, definitely get Sheer Heart Attack and A Day At The Races. Queen II is amazing, too, but it takes a bit to warm up to, since it's so unique. Queen and Jazz are good, The Works isn't bad although it's too short, and I'd save Hot Space for last.

If you liked Back To The Light from Brian, definitely get Another World. It's just as good, and I've found that his albums stay closest to the Queen sound. As for Roger, Fun In Space is my favorite, but Electric Fire is probably second. Happiness? is kind of hit-or-miss and I've never liked Strange Frontier. For Freddie, Mr. Bad Guy honestly isn't wonderful, save for a few strong tracks, but Barcelona is much better. I'm generally not a big fan of opera, but I love this album.

After Queen II and ADATR, my favourite Queen related album is Barcelona. some of the music on there is sublime. Just listen to 'Guide Me Home/How Can I Go On' and I defy you not to be moved. Forget 'Days Of Our Lives' and other later saccharine coated ballads, those two songs together hark back to the glory days of the likes of 'You Take My Breath Away' and 'Nevermore'.

GET THEM ALL thier all great especially queen2 SHA ADATR NOWS JAZZ QUEEN THE MIRACLE INNUENDO.

As for the others brian's albums give you more of a queen sound than roger's but roger's work is diverse and orignal so get fun in space first then strange frontier and so on.Freddie's stuff well if u want to hear one of the best voices around get his stuff particularly Mr bad guy which i think is really good but not if u are looking to hear a "queen sound" on it cause apart from about 3 or 4 tracks the rest is dance and soul music.


Yes we'll keep on tryin

we'll tread that fine line

oh oh we'll keep on tryin

till the end of time

even Queen admit to how much they loved queen II

roger is quoted somewhere as saying that they got into the studio with Roy Thomas Baker and because they weren't working in down-time like on queen I, they decided to "throw everything including the kitchen sink at it"

and boy does it show - it's just a glorious fusion of wildly creative ideas and extraordinary sound ....it's 31 years old and still sounds bloody fantastic turned up loud

Try independent record stores / online stores such as Eil.com, Amazon.co.uk

1st advice - get them all ! :)

If you cant get them all - get The Works - thats a wonderful album. For live - Live At Wembley definitely - it is amazing. And for solo - Mr. Bad Guy is very good.


That time will come, 1 day youll see, when we can all be friends

I'd have to go with News of the World and Brian's Live at Brixton.

I agree with Brenski. Queen II is their most ambitious project for a follow-up album. Once they got a little experience with the studio for their demos and then finishing up all the tracks for the first album, they went crazy second time around for this album. Highly recommended.

News of the World is one of my favourites. ADATR is simply (at least in my opinion) the best album. I'd recommend Queen II for Nevermore alone before you even begin to list the amazing tracks on there. Sheer Heart Attack is also a great rock album and blows anything out today out of the water.

The "Mr.Bad Guy" album/cassett/cd is "Brillant"! to say the least. And I mean that in a very loving way. It would be right up there with my top 10 favorite albums/cassett/cd. I would highly reccommend it. On MY scale of 1-10 I give it a 10. On My scale of STAR rating from *-*****, It of course recieves *****. Thank you very much for the question. It was "Brillant"!
as well.

All right, it's Queen II for Queen and Mr. Bad Guy for the solo albums.

Can I ask, how shit is Hot Space?
