Objectively speaking:
Was it Freddie's (Example: Mr. Bad Guy/Barcelona)?
Brian's (Example: Back to the Light/Furia/Another World)?
Roger's (Example: Strange Frontier/Electric Fire)?
....Forgive me if I am omitting some releases.

Whose was the best and why in your opinion?

Roger...
because he had a solid foundation, great voice, drums, guitar, talent...he was absolutely great!!! and he made the most solo albums! He also had his own band...The Cross...which is very impressive!
His songs ROCK!

So very close and so very hard to pick one berst, but if I absolutely had to, I'd go with 'Made In Heaven' because it just had so many classics on it, 'Made In Heaven', 'You're My Kind of Lover', 'Man Made Paradise', 'I Was Born To Love You', 'Living on my Own' and 'Love Me Like There's No Tomorrow'. That's just too much to be denied. 'The Great Preteder', 'Strange Frontier' and 'Another World are all pretty damned close.

For me Roger (Happiness?)

Edit: because it has a great and emotional atmosphere around it. And I prefer Roger's voice above Brian's


Absolutely in according!



Yup. Plus, it's the most political solo-album, meaning Roger airs very personal thoughts.

I was listening to Another World last night, and realised how cobbled together it seems. The first few tracks are pretty good and all work together, but then we start to get a re-make of a song written as a TV show theme, a song written as a video game theme, and three cover versions. It just doesn't flow together as a cohesive album.

Accordingly, Roger wins (with one of his 90's albums), followed by Freddie (purely based on Barcelona. Mr Bad Guy is not one of my favourites), then Brian.

I think Back To The Light is the BEST solo album, but the rest of Brian's solo albums aren't that good.

Roger, on the other hand, has quite many good solo albums (EF, Happiness?, and MBADTK & Blue Rock with The Cross). So, overall I like Roger's stuff better, but BTTL is still my favourite solo album.

1. Freddie's "Barcelona"
2. Brian's "Back to the Light"
3. Roger's "Strange Frontier"

But overall I like Brian's stuff the best.

Rank-wise, in my opinion

1. Freddie - Mr.Bad Guy, Solo Collection
2. Roggie - "Fun in Space" and the rest of them
3. Bri's "Back To The Light", Another World, bla blah

Truthfully, i think all of them ROCK!!!!
