Raw, powerful and just too good.

well, 73-95 would be the answer(or maybe 97 - No One but you).


But i must say 84-91(including made in heaven sessions and solo albums , from freddie's "Mr.Bad Guy" to Brian's "Back To the Light".)
From the first time that i listened Radio Gaga, to the moment i sang-a-long let me live those were the songs that made me love Queen!

Of course all of us here love all Queen.

But the question is what specific period do you think of when you think of Queen.

My favourite queen is defintely 1973 to 1977 they were simply outstanding full of over the top harmonies epic 8 minute songs or in that vein anyway,queen to news of the world all class albums with varying mixtures of different sounds that only queen could pull off successfully.

CLose second would be 89-91 queen finally back on form after a few dodgy years producing albums that were good and just good not like the masterpieces that had previously been heard.

1973-1977

Queen, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack, A Night at the Opera...

All are classics; Queen II is a masterpiece.

1973 - 1977. All great albums. Sheer Heart Attack (the album) is their best ever!

1973-1977
Because all the albums I prefer (Queen, Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack,ANATO,ADATR and NOTW )were in this period. Ant they had long hairs (Roger was so cute...)!!!!!

But I also like the rest of their career!!!!!

1977-1980 because I grew up listening to them during this period and never looked back. I wish everyone here could have grown up with them when they were in the moment. There was nothing like it back then.

74-76

Why I didn't write 73-77?

Queen I was good, but not brilliant
Queen II - Freddie's half was very interesting, but Brian's one wasn't
NOTW - a solid album, contains a few of my favourite tracks, but as a whole not completely satisfying
