Okay I need to bump this thread since two albums are tied for "best". Take two bloody seconds active members and pick a winner.

My opinion changes all the time, but at the moment, I'd probably rank them as follows:

Queen II
Queen I
A Night at the Opera
Sheer Heart Attack
A Day at the Races
News of the World
The Game
Innuendo
A Kind of Magic
Hot Space
The Works
Jazz
The Miracle

The best 'side' of an album for those old enough to remember them (!) goes to SHA side 1.
As for album its a toss up between SHA ANATO and Q2

I've already voted. But it's still Sheer Heart Attack and The Game. On the outside, News Of The World, Queen, A Night At The Opera. Post 1980 I rate Hot Space and, more and more, The Works.

I see the ADATR/Queen II mob are out in force though. You're all wrong. Come on QOL, get off the sodding fence and get voting down the overblown ballet prancing ADATR and the muddled cod-fairy tale pretentiousness of QII.

We have a 'best Queen album' poll every so often on here and ADATR and Queen II always come out on top and rightly so.

I still don't get the love for Innuendo.

For me it's between ADATR side A and Queen II black side, both perfection IMO.

It's all personal opinion of course, but the one I always come back to is Queen II. I remember it being such a slow burner when I first listened to it, but I persevered and it all slowly started to make sense and worm it's way in. Quite dark, very progressive in places, and drenched in lush vocal and guitar harmonies. Amazing sound for 1974.

Me too, it took a hell of a long time to 'get' Queen II. First reaction after a couple of listens was 'it's shit' but I kept listening. Now it's in my top 2 Queen albums with ADATR.
