I'm building storage shelves in the basement and have had this, Wish You Were Here, and The Kinks are the Village Green... on constant rotation (they just seem to set the mood I need to not hate the work). I'm not even that big of a Queen fan, but just really love this album. Factoid, I work at a place that ran the New Horizons mission to Pluto. Brian May had been named as a "scientific collaborator" and visited along with a visit(s) to NASA. I could have met him but didn't know he was part of the event and passed on attending. I would have bothered him to sign my original issue LP but just really wish I had got to meet him. One of my favorites no doubt.

That's all awesome! I wish you could've met him as well! ANATO is just such a perfect album to my ears. It has everything I didn't even know I wanted in an album. It's outlandish and completely un-self-aware, but totally confident in every move it makes and so passionately executed!

"A Night at the Opera" was in my top three..."Destroyer" edged it by a hair for the simple fact that "Destroyer" was an epic musical moment in my life. "Sheer Heart Attack" was in my top three as well and the Queen albums just kind of cancelled each other out, simply because I couldn't decide between the two. (Although, I've come to believe over the years that "Sheer Heart Attack" is the better of the two).

Destroyer is excellent, I don't listen to it enough really. And I love SHA as well, but there's always been something about ANATO that just seemed a little more picture perfect to my ears. Awesome top 3! Not sure I could make one...

I think AFTK might be number two...maybe.

No way I can do it. I've got a zillion albums and there's a zillion ways to die, and the numbers are similar and if I try to change that number into one single digit...I die right now! :blaze:

It’s not  “favorite single album,” though, either.

The Who- Who's Next

I have thought this for a number of years- ever since I noticed that I kept returning to it over and over. . . . for many many years!  A Night at the Opera is another one, though- that and Born to Run would be close seconds.
