Queen Studio Albums from best to worse

A Listmania! list by Amazon Customer "swainward"
 
A Night At The Opera
1.  A Night At The Opera by Queen
The list author says:
  "The centrepiece of the crown jewels. From the spit and snarl of opener Death On Two Legs to the majesty of Bohemain Rhapsody this showcases all that was good about 70s Queen. Favourite Track: Bo Rhap."
£14.99   Used & New from: £1.83
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (183 customer reviews)

Sheer Heart Attack
2.  Sheer Heart Attack by Queen
The list author says:
  "A very varied album, one minute the heavy rock of Stone Cold Crazy, the next a short piano ballard. Works fantastically as a complete album. FT: 'Killer Queen'."
£10.00   Used & New from: £3.64
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (97 customer reviews)

Queen II
3.  Queen II by Queen
The list author says:
  "The most OTT Queen album. Guitar overdubs and vocal harmonies abound before the whole thing ends with a brief chorus of 'I do like to be beside the seaside'. FT: 'March of the Black Queen'."
£16.09   Used & New from: £2.45
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (83 customer reviews)

A Day At The Races
4.  A Day At The Races by Queen
The list author says:
  "Slightly less accomplished sister of 'Opera'. Retains the early Queen trademark sounds and some great individual songs. FT: 'Somebody To Love'."
£20.00   Used & New from: £2.64
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (39 customer reviews)

Queen
5.  Queen by Queen
The list author says:
  "A confident and accomplished debut. Probably the heaviest Queen album. Not without flaws but full of imagination and with enough quality to prove they were special. FT: 'Liar'."
£20.00   Used & New from: £1.93
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (49 customer reviews)

Innuendo
6.  Innuendo by Queen
The list author says:
  "After the disppointments of the 80s, this was a great start to the 90s. Top quality rock and great vocals with only the occasional lapse in taste (Deliah and Slightly Mad). FT: 'Innuendo'."
£8.06   Used & New from: £0.70
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (102 customer reviews) | 3 customer discussions

Made In Heaven
7.  Made In Heaven by Queen
The list author says:
  "A fine swansong. The variety of songs gives a good idea of what Queen was about although it lacks an all out rocker. The piano is more prominent than for many years. FT: 'Let Me Live'."
£11.99   Used & New from: £0.09
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (132 customer reviews)

Jazz
8.  Jazz by Queen
The list author says:
  "Contains some good songs but the band were struggling to live with the brilliance of earlier albums. Fun It and More Of That Jazz should have been strangled at birth. FT: 'Don't Stop Me Now'."
£29.68   Used & New from: £2.83
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (59 customer reviews)

News Of The World
9.  News Of The World by Queen
The list author says:
  "Opens with the stadium favourites of Rock You/Champions but NOTW shows the first signs of the band running out of ideas. Too many mediocre songs. FT: 'It's Late', a forgotten Brian May gem."
£9.74   Used & New from: £3.48
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (65 customer reviews)

The Works
10.  The Works by Queen
The list author says:
  "Best Queen album of the 80s. Combines the early era guitar led bombast with a funkier synth driven sound and gives rare prominence to Deacon and Taylor with 'Ga Ga' & 'Break Free'. FT: 'Open Windows'"
£9.98   Used & New from: £2.30
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (24 customer reviews)

A Kind of Magic
11.  A Kind of Magic by Queen
The list author says:
  "Starts well with One Vision and contains some good songs but has no coherence and is not great to listen to from start to finish. FT: 'One Vision'"
£6.45   Used & New from: £1.18
4.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (46 customer reviews)

The Miracle
12.  The Miracle by Queen
The list author says:
  "Horrible cover and two weak tracks to kick things off. Ultimately the strong tracks (I Want It All, Miracle, Breakthru, Worth It) are swamped by the rubbish around. FT: 'Was It All Worth It'"
£6.98   Used & New from: £0.90
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (40 customer reviews)

The Game
13.  The Game by Queen
The list author says:
  "After NOTW and Jazz, Queen needed to change direction. They did it with a poppier sound and brought in a new set of fans. An important Queen album but too lightweight for my taste. FT: 'Save Me'"
£13.50   Used & New from: £3.40
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (21 customer reviews)

Hot Space
14.  Hot Space by Queen
The list author says:
  "The much maligned 'disco album'. Even the less funky tracks are mostly below par. Partly redeemed by Under Pressure and Life Is Real, a beautiful piano led tribute to John Lennon. FT: 'Life Is Real'"
£12.91   Used & New from: £3.98
3.9 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (28 customer reviews)

Flash Gordon
15.  Flash Gordon by Queen
The list author says:
  "Haven't listened to this in years. Don't remember that it had much to recommend it. A basic film soundtrack lacking proper songs. FT: 'Flash' but even that's nothing special.."
Used & New from: £4.13
4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (11 customer reviews)
