Queen album covers where always unique in some strange and entertaning ways.
My favorite are;

-Innuendo (strangely good cover,love the font!)
-Hot space (Disapointing album,brilliant cover!)
-The miracle (Weird but a very symbolic cover)

i agree but 'A kind of magic' is one of the best!

The Works is also 5 star! But they only ever originally did 9 songs for both the works and a kind of magic. Albums usually have at least 11/12 songs... so they had to add "re-mixed" visions.

I don't know if you would call this a real Queen "album" but the cover of "Queen Rocks" is my favorite.

All Queen album covers have something particular...

My favourite cover of ALL time has to be Queen II though.

But I also love the cover of Queen, Sheer Heart Attack, News of the World, Hot Space, The Works, A Kind Of Magic (so funny:) ) The Miracle (love the symbolic) and Made In Heaven (so beautiful !!!).

As for the cover of Innuendo... I don't hate it, it's just that I don't get it, I think. I'm not sure to understand what it is. How do you guy see it ?




yes it was plain to see, yes it was meant to be...

News of the world definatly

fav covers:

I loved Queen I, had grandeur in it

The Works seemed very calm & essential

Made in Heaven touches my heart deeply

The cover for innuendo seems almost scary when considering the state of mind Freddie Mercury was in.
The definition of Innuendo is a reference to something sick or disturbing(Freddies AIDS)
and the artwork compared to other album covers (The works,the game.covers which show the band)
makes it seem as if queen where trying to hide something.

By the way,the only few decent songs on hot space are "under pressure" and "the words of love"(I dont no how to spell it) and maybe "body language" but when albums like "The Game" and "A night at the opera" had about 5 top 10 hits it made hot space look very bad.
