News > Queen albums ranked based on Song poll

Added on 11-Nov-2002

A 5 week poll of the 50 best Queen songs not on The Platinum Collection was recently held. Albums are ranked below based on songs from this poll plus songs on The Platinum Collection. Please note that I have taken the liberty of dividing the 15 albums into three groups, (Best, Average, Worst - relatively of course), based on the percentage of “Best” songs (songs from The Platinum Collection plus the 50 songs from the above poll.



ALBUM.............. # Songs . # Best . % Best



A Day at the Races .... 10 ..... 9 .... 90 %

A Night at the Opera .. 12......10..... 83 %

Sheer Heart Attack .....13......10..... 77 %

Made in Heaven .........11...... 8..... 73 %



The Game .............. 10 ..... 6 .... 60 %

The Miracle ........... 10 ..... 6 .... 60 %

A Kind of Magic ........ 9 ..... 5 .... 56 %

The Works .............. 9 ..... 5 .... 56 %

News of the World ..... 11 ..... 6 .... 55 %

Queen II .............. 11 ..... 6 .... 55 %

Jazz .................. 13 ..... 7 .... 54 %

Queen ................. 11 ..... 5 .... 45 %

Innuendo .............. 12 ..... 5 .... 42 %



Hot Space ............. 11 ..... 2 .... 18 %

Flash Gordon .......... 18 ..... 1 ..... 6 %



Keep in mind when looking at these album evaluations that the sum of parts is sometimes bigger than the whole: synergism ....
