Haven't listen to those guys for at least 10 years...They were a great band. They had both an awesome singer and an awesome guitarist, which is rather rare.

The fabolous Queen. My first great love in the world of music. I kinda didn't know where to go from there because they are so incredibly unique that no one sounds like them. And I mean no one. Not even close. You can find something for everyone in their discography since they are very diverse and love to try many different styles.
Even though they are probaly more a singles than an albums band, their albums from the 70's are still very strong and even in the 80's when the albums weren't as consistent you could also find a couple of great songs on each album.

While the group’s style didn’t evolve too much over the years, apart from to remain in step with prevailing trends, they always presented a fair bit of diversity; of the two dominant writers, Mercury tended towards show tunes and May tended towards hard rock, while Deacon and Taylor had less distinctive styles and wrote in more of a pop/rock vein. This approach to writing meant that the group’s albums tended to be incoherent; most of the time it feels like they’re writing to have something to write music to, rather than communicating anything particularly heartfelt or profound. Because of the range of writers, lyrical subjects and styles, none of their albums hang together perfectly. But that’s the negative side; the writers all had a good sense of melody and a distinctive palette of sounds to work with, and their albums almost always have a handful of really good songs – few other groups with a twenty year tenure have such an even distribution of radio hits throughout their discography, as radio listeners are just as likely to be acquainted with ‘Killer Queen’ from 1974 or ‘Bicycle Race’ from 1978 as they are with ‘A Kind of Magic’ from 1986 or ‘The Show Must Go On’ from 1991. And their albums strike a nice balance between innovation and accessibility; even though some of their material could be categorised as progressive rock or metal, they’re not difficult for casual music listeners to grasp.

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.

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.
