    I really like Millionaire's Waltz. It's very prog. Favorite track overall is, predictably......White Man.

    Queen II has held up well! The first as well as the rest up to and including Jazz are quite OK, thanks to Brians guitar and Freddies voice! Innuendo was a some nice bounce back, up in par with the others except II.

    I'm a fan of everything from the debut through The Game, but the delicious center of SHA through NotW is where I will always wind up on this question.

    Queen II
    My favorite & most played Queen track, however, is the Prophet Song. That one ends up on every Prog Mixtape compilation I make.

    You all are wrong. What the hell is with you guys?

    Seriously, how can you put 2 against ANATO? I don't get it. I'm quite flabbergasted at your responses. I so seriously don't get it, but I never got many things so my perspective is a little skewed.

    Dr. Brian May said there's sections of that track where there's 18 tracks of guitar going all at once.

    For me it is still "A Night At The Opera" ... and all the ones before it for not being played to death on the radio
    "Confusion Will Be My Epitaph"

    I only have two Queen albums, the first and Live at the Rainbow ’74, which has to be my favourite. The live album (the deluxe version, that is) is taken from two nights at the Rainbow at either end of 1974. In March, where this track is taken from, the band clearly knows it is destined for the big time. There is an audible sense of self-belief in their performance (Freddie Mercury asks in the middle of Ogre Battle what the audience thinks of the show so far), while in the November concert they return as conquering champions. And then came Bohemian Rhapsody in 1975 and they were confirmed as the biggest band in the land (and, later, the world).
    Their first album was derided by the music press as a clone between Led Zeppelin and David Bowie. Perhaps there was some truth in that, but who cares. For me their music was fresh and exciting. I never got into Queen after their debut, as I considered them too over-produced; Bohemian Rhapsody was completely over the top (although I saw them on the Night of the Opera tour at Hammersmith Odeon in London in 1975). But as a live band back in 1974 they were on fire. (I have posted this track on PE previously, so apologies, but it is good enough for another outing. The sound track here is from the March concert, but not the visuals; there is another version of the track from the November concert that is on YouTube and it has visuals from the show too.)

    II

    But I can find good material on all of the ones from the first to Jazz. As others have stated I feel the same way about Night at the Opera, it’s been overplayed so much it doesn’t matter to me how good it is I just don’t want to hear most of it anymore except for a few songs like Prophet Song.

    A Night At The Opera. The two that proceeded it were pretty good too.

    What can this strange device be? When I touch it, it brings forth a sound.

    The San Francisco Chronicle's rock critic Joel Selvin reviewed a Queen show in March 1977:

    "British rock band Queen, sort of a bush league Led Zeppelin, performed Sunday at the Berkeley Community Theater. Although the show contained more than a few moments of satisfying hard rock, the bulk of the performance never rose above the ordinary."

    I love how he feels he has to explain who Queen are, five albums into their career and a year after "Bohemian Rhapsody" hit the Top 10.
