Dost thou havest any general comments about Kweinne? Leave them heare.


Brief album summaries:


Queen (1973)

One of the most entertaining rock and roll bands in the 70s (and of all time, for that matter!) debut. I love the debut! It's way cool. Uhhh.... QUEEN ROOOLS, MAN!

In the Wake of Queen II


Sheer Heart Attack (1974)

This is even better than the last one! Plus, instead of relying so heavily on theatrics, these rock-and-roll royal females concentrate more on HARD ROCK.

A Day at the Races (1976)

The follow-up to A Night at the Opera doesn't quite have the same level of awesomeness, but it really is still FAB-U-LOUS.

News of the World (1977)

Artistic success after artistic success (whether mild or major), Queen finally delivers an album that leaves much to be desired. We are not amused.

Overall Album Score: 7.5 out of 10

Jazz (1978)

Queen quits it with all their stupid crap and starts trying to be CREATIVE. There's no jazz on here, though, so it can't be *that* creative. There's some interesting songs on here, for Queen.

The Works (1984)

Very much a throwback to good old classic Queen ... plus a few good 80s pop songs for good measure. It's not the great Queen album, but as it title suggests, it works.

A Kind of Magic (1986)

The Miracle (1989)

Innuendo (1991)

Ohhh, this is more like it! Freddie Mercury at least stuck around long enough to make a valuable swansong for the band ... this ain't perfect, but at least it's good. And it has a really great song on it, in case you didn't know.

Overall Album Score: 8.5 out of 10

In the Window


Made in Heaven (1995)

It's that album that was released way after Freddie died, but he was working on it during his final days ... The band really messed it up with all those synths drowning everything out, but there are a few moments in here worth mentioning, at least.

Overall Album Score: 6.5 out of 10
