I thought having Queen II in your top 5 would be a given for anyone on here.

Excluding Innuendo is understandable; I feel that is a very overrated album. A Day at the Races I could see just barely missing the top 5. But Queen II...definately top 5 material there.

Nope, you are wrong. It sounds strange, but he didn't like the album at all! His favourite is The Game.

I would.

I'm sure most of my reasoning is nostalgia -- it was the first Queen album I bought off the shelves. My family bought Game and Live Killers, but this was the first I got with my hard-earned allowance cash.

Hot Space gets a bad rap, but I'd blame most not on the songs themselves, but on production. What's up with the drum sound?

Calling All Girls is one of my favorite Queen tracks of all time. Put Out The Fire, Life is Real, great songs. Give me Staying Power over One Year Of Love, ya know?

I have a review in Cream magazine that gave Hot Space an actual good review. To me, this album shows what could have happened with Queen if they kept experimenting. Hot Space gets a bad rap because it broke some of their confidence, but that only shows up in AKOM, Miracle. Again IMHO.

If you think Innuendo is overrated then you need your ears and brains tested, in my view.

It is my favorite more often that the others.
To me, you have to sit and listed to things like QII and Innuendo.
I listen to Hot Space almost every weekend while getting ready to go out. It just puts me in a great mood. It is simple enough that I can 'ignore' it but still hear everything that's going on.
It isn't distracting while getting ready.

Overated??? Innuendo Overated??
I think not.

You know what is overated at Queenzone.com??

Queen 2.

Seriously.... I think the 2 albums that came before (Queen 1) and after (Sheer Heart AttacK) ....absolutely, without question, blow Queen 2 out of the water.

Had Queen put out 10 albums of Queen 2 sounding stuff..... I would not be on this website, because I wouldn't be that big of a fan.
