My favorite album is Queen II

I was in my friend's house doing a homework when I saw the sleeve of the Queen II album, and I heared.
The curious thing, is that the songs names was in spanish.I loved all the sleeve: Queen in Black and White, Freddie Mercury with the crossed hands, the Queen logo... etc.
My favorite song of this album is Nevermore.
I have another that is Ogre Battle.

Queen II...or Sheer Heart Attack, or A Day At The Races, I only just realized how often I actually do listen to it.

Oooooooooohhhhhh, so, so hard...

Well, I have a slight dialema. I have recentley realised that Innuendo is an albulm that I absoloutley adore.I listened to A Kind Of Magic first, and I really enjoyed that. There is ofcourse a Night At The Opera, and Queen, which I love as well. Also, Made in Heaven is the most emotional Queen albulm, so I love that one to. I have ten out of their fifteen albulms (not including greatest hist 2). Hmmm, it's between AKOM and Innuendo. AKOM for sentimental reasons, and Innuendo because, it (for me) is even with ANATO, but then ANATO has my favortie song on it! AHHHHHHHH!!! I can't choose! Um, oh, not a clue, how to you decide between those three...you ask a tough question my good sir!! I shall have to ponder that one...

My favorite Queen albums are

A Day At The Races and Queen II

I can never decide which is best.



But I listen to A Day at the Races EVERY night when I go to bed.. I usually fall asleep before Somebody to Love...

But it's really hard to decide which is the best of all of them. Queen (1) and Sheer Heart Attack are also really great!!

But if I have to choose right now, it's A Day at the Races or Queen II. The album feeling are really great on both of them. With the powerful intro's (and outro on ADATR).

...but I think A Night at the Opera is really overated. Not that it is not good, but it's not often I listen to it. Everybody are talking about Bohemian Rhapsody. And because of that I'm really tired of the song. I never put it on. But of course The Prophet's Song, Death on Two Legs and Seaside Rendezvous are great!

I don't know why I mentioned it, I'm just so tired of all the talking about Bohemian Rhapsody. It's only ONE song! And by the way, The March of the Black Queen is much much better!

Anyway.. It's really hard to decide which album is the best!

I have 3 favorite albums...*cough cough cough*


Jazz...Hot Space and Queen II...


Jazz - because ALL of the songs are so great, both vocally and instrumentally...In my opinion...there are no flaws on that album.

Hot Space - I <3333333333333333333 Hot Space because of it's awesome fast-paced songs and the fact that Queen wasn't afraid to experiment with different genres. And yes, people...Go ahead an kill me. But I <3333333 Hot Space :D And I'm DAMN PROUD, LOVES. ;D

Queen II - AMAZING vocals. SO magical....SO powerful...SO great. O-M-G. I am speechless. ALL of the songs are WONDERFUL. It's perfection, I tell you.


Damn straight, love ;P

A Night At The Opera is my favorite Queen album. Truely an example of something greater than the sum of it's parts. I wouldn't change one thing about it. It's so diverse, yet has a sense of unity. Obviously the band weren't taking themselves too seriously, yet the result is very grand, it feels the entire way through like this huge, operatic masterpiece. I personally feel that it is the greatest rock album ever created, and the greatest piece of music ever recorded. I believe that it belongs in the same pantheon of rock albums as The Dark Side Of The Moon, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, and Led Zeppelin IV. I would have to say that the ONLY thing keeping it down is a couple of songs. Sweet Lady (although I think its great and it fits in perfectly) is perceived as a weak attempt for Brian May, and I don't think anyone ready to crown Good Company as one of their best. But hey, they're both still very good songs, and when you consider the rest of the album, I don't think you can call it anything other than great.

Not too long ago, I might have said that Queen II is right up there. No thinking of it, yes, it's an incredible album and no doubt their 2nd best outing. That said, Some Day One Day and The Loser In The End really drag that album down. You never (at least I don't, and never heard anyone do) skip a track on Opera. Personally, there is no reason to listen to SDOD and TLITE unfortunately. I always skip from the BRILLIANT White Queen (hey, I said I loved this album) right to Ogre Battle.
