    Not necessarily asking which is the better album, but which of the two you prefer listening to. Mrs Hermit prefers 1 as that's the Queen she grew up with, while I'd much rather listen to 2.


    So which is it?

    Wildcard choice here: 3

    Driven by You is a work of musical genius adored by Ford drivers everywhere.


    Seriously though: 1

    2 for me too.
    Live in Wembley 86 is my favourite though.

    1, but there are a few songs on 2 which I'd be missing out on.

    None of them have Death on Two Legs, Prophet's Song or Love of my Life on them.

    So just listen to A Night at the Opera.

    Queen started going downhill when Freddie grew his ‘tache, not a coincidence IMO

    Whichever album has 'Under Pressure' is automatically the best.

    Seven Seas of Rhye and Now I'm Here are their best tunes IMO, so I. Innuendo is top too though.

    Probably 1 however Show must go on, Who wants to live forever and Innuendo are all AAA tracks.

    Both excellent but 1 has Killer Queen and Don't Stop Me Now on it, so that.

    Which is funny because they tacked it onto the end of Hot Space, and album so unredeemingly shit Under Pressure - one of the best songs ever written - doesn't even save it.
    Yeah that album is *profoundly* shit. Everything else they've done is leagues ahead of it. Was there something going on then? It's just so much worse than all they're other albums it's actually baffling. We're they trying to get out of an album contract or something?

    And the correct answer to OP is every single album in chronological order from Queen II to Kind of Magic, inclusive. But miss out Hot Space, obv
