I own their Greatest Hits I&II and love most of the tracks there, but I think The Works is the only album that I've actually listened to(I own it and News Of The World on vinyl, but I'm not sure if I've ever listened to the latter all the way through).

You just don't hear people talking about their albums with the same reverence they do about the albums of so many other bands.

Their singles are killer for the most part, though.

Also, Mercury is absolutely a top five frontman of all time.

Everything up until The Game was pretty decent. Their older albums have some good deep cuts. Night Comes Down from the first album is pretty.

Innuendo is better than people give credit for - The Show Must Go On is such a great song.

Every album has songs to skip, but every album also has deep cuts that are amazing.

Queen

Because of this thread I finally got around to listening to Jazz.

It's pretty underrated, honestly. The ballads are lovely (It's Only Seven Days, Leaving Home Ain't Easy) and there's an exciting streak of experimentation running through the album. You've got to be a real dickhead to not like Don't Stop Me Now. Queen also gets major points for writing Fat Bottomed Girls years before songs about girls with huge asses were a thing. Queen and Sir Mix-a-Lot both deserve credit for forming our modern sensibilities.

Unfortunately, there are always skips on their albums. Mustapha and Fun It are awful.

The 80s were an odd time for the band I guess. I only remember hearing Radio GaGa and I Want to Break Free on the radio a lot as a kid in the mid 80s and also the duet with Bowie.

Queen

It always seemed to me like the 80s were an odd, often awkward time for any band that existed prior to that decade. Way too many weirdly used synths.

I've always had more of an appreciation or respect for Queen than ever considered them a band I like to listen to. Musically, you can't shit on them. And they had one of the top 5 greatest frontmen ever. I've tried, I've listened to the majority of the albums because I thought maybe like the Stones, I'd find that they had amazing songs that were overshadowed by the mega hit overplayed singles. I didn't find that, though.

The irony of this is that on the Queen albums before the 80s, they always had a "No synths!" notation on the back of the album cover.

Really? I can't see it on my Sheer Heart Attack CD. Maybe cos it's a 91 re-issue.

Anyway, just bumping this cos I'm gonna get into Queen. Sheer Heart Attack kicked my ass. It's so good.

You gotta get News Of The World if you haven't already.

After the two big songs We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions is some really solid stuff. It's Late is maybe my favorite song by them.

Thumbs Up

When Queen's music made a comeback in 1990-1992 due to Vanilla Ice/ Innuendo/Freddy's death/Greatest Hit Sales/Wayne's World, my friend played the shit out them constantly in his apartment and car. They owned Wembley when they performed at Live Aid. When the crowd did all the Radio Gaga shit, it was mind blowing. Watching the video of that gave me goosebumps. I definitely grew an appreciation for them.
