I'd take another listen to those albums and revise your list. Anyone who puts Hot Space ahead of Sheer Heart Attack must have the hearing of Beethoven.

if ur aiming to buy all the albums why not buy them in order then you can listen to queens sound change and develop. just a suggestion.

Insulting ppl just beacause they like A Day at the Races better than A Night at the Opera makes no sense, everybody has their own taste..As for me
1. Queen 2
2.A Night at the Opera
3.Innuendo
4.Sheer heart attack
5.The Miracle
6.The Works
7.Queen
8. Jazz
9.A day at the Races...
All these albums are rated excellent in my humble opinion...
A kind of Magic, News of the World and The Game are still very good but not quite uo to the uper ones...Hot Space, well i give Queen lots of credit for having the balls to try something different and the album does show that we are dealing with real musicians but it's just not my taste...Flash Gordon can't be rated as an regular album..As far as Made in Heaven is concerened i always keep it out of those lists because of the special circumstances when it was recorded and it misses some of the harder queen stuff but i love the album because it's simply beautiful...

1 A Night at the Opera
2 Queen II
3 News of the World (somewhat underrated IMO)
4 Innuendo
5 A Day at the Races
6 Sheer Heart Attack
7 The Game
8 Queen
9 The Miracle
10 The Works
11 Jazz (so overrated around here, 2nd half is crap)
12 A Kind of Magic
13 Hot Space (never really listened to it, but "disco-flavored" was all I needed to hear)

....and I didn't bother listening to the Flash Gordon thing and I don't have a copy of Made in Heaven

i spend endless nights pondering your idiocy, for ANATO has bohemian rhapsody, and what does ADATR have, drowse?



Drowse! Yeah!!!

Agree with Peter on Made In Heaven after all the other Queen albums (or all but Hot Space and Flash) as it's really only half an album and some re-worked b-sides and freddie solo tracks

Disagree with ANATR over ANATO. ANATO is IMO a way better listen start to finish...it really creates atmosphere..think the beginning of Death on Two Legs....and In Love With My Car is by no means filler......ANATR is good but loses it in some places....Tie Your Mother Down and White Man are two of the heaviest and best rocking songs they have ever done though....Good Old Fashioned Loverboy is really weak IMO to Seaside Rendezvous and Leroy Brown

My List may be (I think it changes dayly)

Innuendo
A Night At The Opera
The Miracle
The Works
Jazz
Live Killers
Sheer Heart Attack
News Of The World
The Game
Queen 1
A Kind Of Magic
A Day At The Races
Made In Heaven
Hot Space
Flash Gordon

why does it matter what anyones fave queen album is instead of having childish arguments why dont u ask why someone has their opinion and then u may recognise something in queens work that u didnt know before

BoRap is surely the greatest Queen song ever


Personally, I'd take issue with this and say that their greatest song ever was either Great King Rat or Liar, but that's just me I suppose!

A day at the races is more listenable for me. And Bohemian Rhapsody starts to bore me, whcih can't be said about songs like teo torriate, White Man, Long Away, You and I and Millionaire Waltz


Go Hero! Tell it like it is! I have to say that I started to get bored of Bo Rhap about 10-12 years ago, but I could never, ever get bored of the Millionaires Waltz - surely some of the best basswork ever put down on vinyl!
