During Queens 20 reign as the most dominant british band since the beatles,they style of music changed accordingly with the decade.

Here are the eras of queen;

1973-1980:Typical british glam rock.
1980-1988:British pop music which WASNT chessy.
1988-1991:respectable British rock band.
1992-present:Queen remakes are SH*T,WWRY musical still going since 2002 and Brian May + Roger Taylor still KICK ASS!

I'm really obsessed with '73-'80s Queen. They were really good dressers. And I love their fantasy-filled lyrics.

Having been around for all era's, I have to say that my favorite is 73-80. That being said, I love watching them evolve, even to this day. It's been quite a ride.

i can't decide.
They had some song in the 70's that werent greatand the same in the 80's.
I think there later albums are really underated.
innuendo is a brilliant album and should be recognised more.

thanks

70's Queen contains the foundation the 80's Queen built upon

1973-1980 was great because of enthusiasm they put in it...

They came up all sorts of things, it was very experimental.

1980-86 was not too great in my opinion. Though there were great hits like WWTLF, AOBTD, AKOM, etc...

There were some very bad numbers like Back Chat, Body Language... it was simply not their style...

after 86 Freddie put a completely new touch & made extremely numbers till his demise.

You could see the perfection on Innuendo & The Miracle.

Seventies Queen, no doubt about it.

To be honest: 1971-1982.

Early 70s is my favourite Queen period. IMHO their music was at it's best at that time. I guess my favourite Queen period was 73-76 but to be honest i love all of Queens music, so give me Queen from any period and i'd love them.

Adore all "eras" but I'm mostly seduced by 70s Rock style, Freddie's composing was just superb. ;)
Only that I didn't like too much their heterogeneous dressing style,not uniform or standardized at all, but LOL, that kept on in the eighties(maybe in the final years they were more in consonance with each other:))

Typical british glam rock? You mean like Gary Glitter or T Rex? Not a chance. They may have dressed the part, but there is much more depth to their music at this time to dismiss it as typical glam.
