next saturday 18th june - late show
Planet Rock (DAB radio) or via sky digital tv
or online streaming

for those that still don't believe

Queen II is the classic album - a good sample of tracks will be aired - so for those of you who haven't shelled out for this cd yet, give this a listen and convert to early 70s queen - it;s the path of righteousness and true enlightenment ;-)

80's Queen were much, much better - more rock n roll. Heck, everything about the eighties was better.

there are a few of us in QZ who think this way - it does (imo) blow everything else away. i can't get the purists who hail ANATO as THE ONE - i just don't get it - II is much better, and queen I is close behind
i love the energy, the production, the whymsical songwriting and the absolute overblown creative exploration - side black of queen II is (IMO) the finest side of ANY ALBUM anywhere

The only thing I like about Queen II was the cover. I dont like any of the songs.


Well here's my counter-offer... do I have to kill you? What if I were just to kick the ever loving shit out of you?

For me its ANATO with Queen II closely behind.

If Queen II makes it to DVD-A I may be forced to change my opinions though....

do you have the album/have you listened to it?

the reason i ask is you must also hate bo-rhap too!
fairy feller/nevermore/march of the black queen are the conception and embryo of bo-rhap

add to that seven seas of rhye - classic pomp queen
and the staple live numbers - March/ogre battle/father to son/white queen

my guess is you must hate 70s queen and love 80s queen

Queen II has one of the best song arcs in the Queen arsenal in Ogre Battle - Fairy Feller - Nevermore - March of the Black Queen - Funny How Love Is.
I also dig Someday One Day, but I don't think Q2 is the best album of Queen's.
I think that honour is best bestowed on NotW or Jazz.

I'm far from 16, but I must admit that Queen II is not my favorite. I much prefer ANATO/ADATR/NOTW to Queen II.

I gotta agree, those three albums really solidified Queen's reputation as the best damn act out there.
BUT for a singular album, I'd say NotW

It is very strange to hear a Queen fan say that he didn't even like a single song from Queen II.

IMHO, I much prefer SHA or ADATR to Q2. The only exceptional songs off of Q2 are FFMS & TMOTBQ. The rest of Q2 is not nearly as good as the following songs from SHA or ADATR:

SHA - BR, KQ, FOTW, ITLOTG, SCC, BBTLB

ADATR - TYMD, YTMBA, TMW, STL, TT


Roger: I like it. If you don't. Sod you!

It's not that I don't like _any_ songs on the album. I've always liked Orge Battle, but most of the other songs range from just _okay_ to rather dull. I have to be in the right mood to listen to Queen II; otherwise, I'm likely to pop in ADATR or NOTW.

Queen II is mega.

But, I guess only if you like the more rock/metal side of Queens sound. It is also not the most instant album and I guess some people have not given it the time to get to know (and love) it.
