Please list your favorite to least favorite Queen album. Yes, they are all good, and even my least favorite Queen album is better than every other bands best album.

Maybe tell us why your top choice is your favorite, and why you chose what you did as your least favorite.

Lord a'mighty, this is going to change every five minutes or so, I can't give you a reliable list! Ah well, here's the standings as they are now.

I'm going to include only albums made while Freddie was still alive, and no Flash Gordon - that was made with a distinct purpose and can't be judged against albums made purely for music.

1) News of the World
Symmetry is regarded by the geometric-minded as what makes something beautiful. That certainly applies to music, and I've never heard a more symmetric album than NOTW. Everything is in a perfect balance - there are no infinite guitar solos, no mixing overloads, and only just the right amount of vocal harmonies. Based purely on listening pleasure, not on technical precision or stickin' it to da man, I think this is the closest anyone's ever come to a perfect album.

2) The Miracle
3) Sheer Heart Attack
4) Hot Space
5) Innuendo
6) The Game
7) The Works
8) A Kind of Magic
9) Jazz
10) ANATO
11) ADATR
12) Queen II

13) Queen
What do you expect? It's the first damn album. They're still a bunch of kids who need to eat and are still trying to figure out what the hell they are doing. It's not a bad album, it's just kind of lost.


God wants you to send me some money.

1. Queen II
2. A Day At The Races
3. Innuendo

The rest is too hard choose.


You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life. Like going up to heaven and then coming back alive.

1. The Works (only hits, hits, hits!)
2. A Night At The Opera (Bo.Rap!)
3. The Game (I love this new Queen sound)
4. A Day At The Races (together with One Vision, is TYMD the best cd-opener)
5. The Miracle (the Miracle, I Want It All, Breakthru, Invincible Man and Was IT All Worth it are awesome! .. but it also has tracks like My Baby Does Me that are só terrible, no words for it)
6. Jazz (some of Queens best 'feel good' songs; FBG, DSMN, BR)
7. Queen (I love Keep Yourself Alive, Liar and Doin Alright .. but I don't really care about the rest)
8. News of the World (some really ass kicking tracks like WWRY, WATC and Spread Your Wings .. wonderfull cd!)
9. Innuendo (this cd has the best Queen track ever; Innuendo and of course TSMGO is also awesome.. but is also has too much songs that aren't realy Queeny like Ride The Wild Wind)
10. A Kind of Magic (One Vision, AKoM, FWBF and WWTLF are wonderfull .. Pain is so Close and Gimme The Prize and Don't Lose Your Head are painfull)
11. Made In Heaven (some wonderfull tracks like Heaven For Everyone .. but it's a little too emotional for listening all the time, and it's just not new.. but it has some great stuff!)
12. Hot Space (well .. I kinda like Action, UP and Staying Power .. it's something totally different and it show that the guys had some courage)
13. Queen II (hmm .. not many favo songs, except for tracks 9 and 11!)
14. Flash Gordon (Flash Theme and Hero kick ass .. all the other ones aren't really listenable)
15. Sheer Heart Attack (except for Killer Queen and Now I'm Here .. not many favo songs. In The Lap of the Gods only works live IMHO. Although Lily and She Makes Me are also very beautifull)

Same here! Haven't listened to this in ages. Not really a Queen album but an out and out soundtrack album. Least 3 favourite album have to be:

Hot Space.....surprise, surprise
Queen
Jazz



We all of us deeply apologise for this god forsaken shit heap of a building...but we will make it rock.
