Alright maybe this question has been asked before, I'm not sure.
Anyway we all have tracks on Queen albums we like less then others. Some even hate certain tracks but I personnaly dont't. So my question to you is, is there a Queen album that you think is just perfect or close to perfection?

I'd say Queen II. It has everything you'd expect from a Queen album, still I'm not too keen on the song Funny How Love Is, so that's pretty much the only reason I don't rate it as perfect.

A Night At The Opera stands as a close second but again one song just doesn't do it for me, whitch is Good Company.

A suprise maybe but one album that I actually regard more as a perfect album is Queen first debut album. I love every track! I think it's one of their greatest album yet somehow I can't really rate it perfect, maybe because it's their first album or because the album lacks audio quality.

Now of course all these albums are still classics in my eyes but I just wanted to know if people really think there's such a thing as a perfect album. Please share your thoughts or discuss.

A Day At The Races (my fave one is Innuendo, but most perfect album is ADATR, IMHO).

I think that A Day At The Races or Queen II are the closest ones I think

a night at the opera,a bands perfect album need not be your favorite just the most realized. like kiss, alive/ yes, fragile/ genesis, selling england by the pound/ rainbow, long live rock n roll/ chris deburgh, at the end of a perfect day/ rush, 2112/ angel, on earth as it is in heaven/ beatles, sgt. pepper, and the list goes on, and on, and on........keep good company!

I'm elated to read that there are at least a few other Queen fans that rank ADATR right at the top. I bought it in 1979 -- when I was 10! -- and it has always been a special album for me. It is a glass of fine red wine resting on a piano. Queen's most (and perhaps only) romantic album. Only Innuendo or Made In Heaven may be more emotive.

A perfect Queen album?
Yes, it is called Sheer Heart Attack, I believe.


This can't end well.

There isn't a better album!

SHA, ANATO and ADATR are the other favorites of mine.

Queen II is my favorite, but it doesn't show their musical diversity like other albums. I'd say ANATO is the perfect one IMHO though it's the obvious one....

I think Sheer Heart Attack is pretty much perfect, it's got all the different aspects of Queen on one album.

Queen 2 definitely, ANATO almost, SHA almost, MIH almost. Innuendo is almost almost, as are ADATR, NOTW, and Queen 1! :-D
Then The Game and Jazz are very good, followed by The Works, then The Miracle, then Flash, then Hot Space

In my opinion!

Sorry I strayed off topic lol, Queen 2 is perfect

As for the original poster regarding Funny How Love Is... as a standalone song, it isn't very good, but to me it bridges the gap between MOTBQ and SSOR ever so well.
