By spoilers, I mean tunes that, in your opinion, are completely skipable, and likely have lowered that album in your list of favourites.

E.g. I absolutely adore The Works. A great feel-good, hand-tapping, sing-along album. But there's one tune I - Just - Can't - STAND on it.

Keep Passing The Open Windows.

Something about that tune just irks me.

Ditto for Rain Must Fall on The Miracle. I love that album to bits, but RMF just messes it all up.

What about you guys? Any tunes that ruined your taste for an album?

Absolutely can't stand 'Get Down Make Love', pretty much ok with the rest but I think Brian's 'I'm Scared' must be the worst song ever written, sounds like it was written by a four year old (maybe it was).

What! I love Who Needs You. NOTW was the last album (apart from Jazz, and to a lesser extent Innuendo)which showed the flair, imagination and sheer diversity of Queen. Who else could get away with ending an album with Who Needs You, It's Late and then My Melancholy Blues: three diverse styles sandwiched in about 12 brilliant minutes.

Definitely Dancer for me. And Party. Body Language would be on the list, but I can stand it because it's so hilariously bad.


Resistance is futile. You are now an orb.

I've always loved Dancer... seriously, Dancer is 1000x better to me than ... for example, Keep Yourself Alive.

Wow...I love She Makes Me.
I usually skip All God's People, often skip Sweet Lady, sometimes skip You Don't Fool Me (why oh why is it right after Too Much Love Will Kill You?) depending on my mood and always stop it before track 13 starts. If I listen to Queen (which isn't often) I find Jesus eminently missable, not because it's a bad song exactly, just really annoying and gets stuck in my head really easily. I can feel it coming just from typing about it.
I haven't listened to anything for ages and if I do it's usually when I'm doing something else like ironing so I just let it play most of the time. I don't tend to put on the ones with songs I skip if it's going to be background music.

Queen: Jesus- the one bad song off the first album

Queen II: The Loser in the End- just seems so out of place

Sheer Heart Attack: Dear Friends- drags on for a very boring 2 minutes

A Night at the Opera: Nothing, everything fits

A Day at the Races: Nothing really out of place, but I never liked "You and I"

News of the World: Almost everything about this album is excellent except the schreeching in Sheer Heart Attack and whatever the hell those sci-fi sounds are in Get Down, Make Love

Jazz: the whole damn album seems thrown together

The Game: Rock It and Don't Try Suicide. They both sound like they belong in a bad Broadway musical

Hot Space: I guess Under Pressure because it was originally a bonus track on GHI, and Under Pressure's not crap like the rest of Hot Space

The Works: Machines, gotta be one of Queen's worst

A Kind of Magic: Princes of the Universe, I don't what no Highlander themes in my Queen albums

The Miracle: The whole album sounds like a Queen renaissance until you hit Scandal, which is basically a bad 80s pop song

Innuendo: Headlong, in one of Queen's most lyrically beautiful albums I have to hear "hoop-diddy-do"? God that songs sucks.

Queen: Jesus is the worst, but there's others.

Queen II: Fairy Feller...

News Of The World: Who Needs You. Just doesn't seem to fit, even on that varied album.

Jazz: ...Seven Days. ZZZZZZ.

Hot Space: It's just too disco isn't it. Staying Power especially. Calling All Girls is abit naff too.

AKOM: About 70% of it.

Innuendo: Delilah (although I like the solo).

MIH: track 13 (apart from last 3/4 mins).
