Started the year with "Jazz" as my first spin.

Can't believe it's been nearly 40 years...

...sounds as great today as it did then.

Trying to argue that a circle is not round is the same as arguing that Sheer Heart Attack and Hot Space are not Queen's best albums. It is a fact. ReRushed has spoken.

Stevie Wonder could do it, :P https://en.wikipedia...n_Square_Circle

It is difficult to argue though, lol. I always appreciate enthusiasm for Queen's most unfairly hated record.
People hate Sheer Heart Attack?!?

As for that fairly hated album...  :P

No one will ever replace Freddie, but I'm actually getting used to Adam Lambert being in this band. He's very talented.  He really killed it in his PLL cameo.

He SLAYS WWTLF live, like...almost better than Freddie did.

Just that one song though, but he's amazing nonetheless.

Okay here's a mini topic: your favorite (maybe even like top 5 or top 10) performance by any or all of the members of the band.

For me, I'm Going Slightly Mad has to be one of Freddie's greatest achievements as a vocalist. And of course Somebody To Love and a bunch of other stuff, but I want to draw attention to the nuance on that Innuendo track. Incredible.

Mercury on Don't Try So Hard gets me every time.

Love Taylor's drum fill in Dead on Time

Deacon on Millionaire's Waltz

May on . . . geez, just about anything . . . but probably Prophet's Song most of all.

As I went through my chronological collection of all of Queen's studio albums, I was always amazed how Mercury managed to surprise me with yet another unique and incredible vocal at least once on each album. For Innuendo that moment was Don't Try So Hard. Here I'd thought he'd lost that ability to sound so clean and smooth in full voice so high up, and yet not only did he still have it, but he laid down arguably the best showcase of that part of his voice on that song! Incredible!

Also Deacy on Millionaire Waltz makes the song. But then he kinda makes the entire ADATR album...and then if you're listening closely he honestly kinda makes most of Queen's catalogue. They don't have a lot of songs that wouldn't lose a lot of their effect and charisma with a different bassist. People always underestimate Deacy.

Mercury on Love of my life.  Just the way he vocalizes and harmonizzes with himself is breathtaking.

Deacon i agree on Millionaire Walz

Taylor...wow he's great on lots.  Liar, Keep yourself Alive, I'm in love with My car.  the ENTIRE Queen II album.

May.  Brighton Rock, Liar, Prophet' song and......my fav.....the astounding Good Company.  i mean.......that song.......DAMN.

It's too easy to forget Love Of My Life being surrounded by so much other incredible material on ANATO, but that's easily one of Mercury's most beautiful vocals, agreed. Taylor in the 70s is so overlooked in favor of Bonzo, Keith, Peart, Collins, and the other regulars. Liar is an incredible example. Also, I know it's one of his simplest parts, but I actually love his work on Hammer To Fall, lol.

And of course May's guitar wizardry never ceases to amaze.

I always found that little drum intro with the echo/delay on it before Loser in the End to be incredibly catchy.
And the drumming on Death on Two Legs is full of good business.

Deacon is like the glue that holds everything together with that big fat tone. Slick bass player, smart musician. Some of his fills in Dragon Attack are pretty sweet.
Freddie always gets me in Under Pressure, the “why can’t we give ourselves one more chance” bit. Every f***in time.
May’s an excellent arranger and has awesome hair. :P

His work on Jazz is quite interesting. The rhythm he uses in More of That Jazz is pretty tasty.

Ya know it's no secret that i prefer 70's Queen to 80's by a large margin.  but i LOVE Hammer to Fall.  that's a great song with a Fantastic hook.

Oh yeah! Loser In The End is one of Roger's most overlooked tunes for sure. That little xylophone in the beat cracks me up, but it's great. And Freddie just slays Under Pressure. Smart is a great way to describe John's playing.

And May's hair...ah yes, May's hair, :lol: I love it.

More Of That Jazz and Fun It have awesome grooves. Easy to see how they got to Another One Bites The Dust and Dragon Attack on the next album.
