Queen were one of those bands that were totally unique, they never sounded like anyone else but themselves. They had incredible songs, especially the singles, but there were some fantastic album tracks too. Bohemian rhapsody, Killer queen, Another one bites the dust, and, somebody to love, are all classic singles, but there's also, '39, Get down, make love, Jealousy, It's late, and, I'm in love with my car, all great album tracks. Queen never took themselves too seriously and their relationship with their fans was always very important. All four members contributed great songs to their records and their videos, especially in the eighties, were always a lot of fun. Queen were one of those very few bands that crossed over into all genres, everyone likes at least one Queen song. They may not be thought of as cool, and they may have veered a little too close to commerciality in the second half of their career, but they were always entertaining and superb live as their amazing show at Live Aid shows us. There will never be another band quite so brilliant, unique, and bizarre again. A great band.

Ah, Queen. What a group. What a bunch of talent. Totally unique.
Some here have said they're a singles group, but I disagree. Sure, they had excellent singles (Queen's Greatest Hits has to be thee best greatest hits album ever), but to say they were a singles group is a serious oversight. Their 70s albums (in particular their initial run of albums), many artists would've given their right arm to have come up with albums that great - from the debut through to A Day At The Races, all of which were consistently brilliant (Especially Queen II, Sheer Heart Attack and A Night At The Opera). And after the initial run, there's some fine (and fun) albums, News Of The World, Jazz, The Game, The Works, and Innuendo spring to mind.
In north America, their popularity dipped off in the early to mid 80s due to the luke-warm reception to Hot Space, Freddie not wanting to tour there, and the payola issues which meant their new material wasn't getting airplay (radio airplay was vital if you wanted to sell a single in the 80s). Globally (outside North America) Queen remained huge and went from strength to strength - something which a lot of the major 70s acts didn't manage to do.
All in all, Queen were a superb group, deserving of their place in music history as one of the all time greats.

They had two great talented guys, wrote a fair amount of classic tunes and were a great live act.
But they were pompous and a bit kitsch when it comes to arrangements.

IMO -unless you're a diehard fan- Queen essential is covered by having one or two greatest hits albums and some live concert of your preference.

From Strangel 07/20/2016 12:47
Queen were a band driven by enormous talent that seemed to only lift their art to great heights sporadically. There are no albums that are consistently brilliant like the truly great albums released by talented bands. Freddie had the charisma that drew you in like great bands had with your Morrisons, Lennons, Jaggers, Bonos, Yorkes, Plants etc. His voice was probably better than any from the great bands. Brian May was a genius in the class of Page, Clapton, Harrison, Greenwood, Richard etc. But, despite this immense talent I feel that they never really put it all together as well as their potential promised. They still had many classic songs pulled here and there from various albums which probably makes them a great compilations band. I'm sure they were great live too. Just too much rubbish amongst the gold.

Weak albums and a limited back catalogue outside of their most famous songs, but as far as live performances and sheer power go, Queen are very hard to top.

First 5 albums were amazing - singles band after that, but good singles. Innuendo is a hugely underrated album, and The Prophet's Song is probably better than Bohemian Rhapsody. Consistently an AMAZING live act. Huge talent in all four members. Probably the best overall band of all time from an objective perspective.

A bit overrated,seeing as they're pretty much a good pop/rock band with a really amazing vocalist. They have a few stand outs and probably one of the best songs ever in their discography,but still.

They're more of a singles band, and not an albums band. There's nothing wrong with that, but I'm just saying it's probably a better use of money to buy two Greatest Hits albums than like seven albums where you only like two songs on each album. They're still legends though. Bohemian Rhapsody is one of the best songs ever written.
