    We have this 1 album, 1 band, from 1 era rule in our HS reunion site. Last year we went full Van Halen by the way.

    I'm sure some if not most of you have listened to Queen before.

    So I'd like to know which Album would be the best to play for our highschool reunion.

    We are only to choose 1 from Queen's list of albums though, unfortunately. It's like 1 album per band per era. Don't ask me why, that's just the rules.

    I personally much prefer their early less commercial, less poppy stuff, so their best albums I’d say are Sheer Heart Attack, and Queen II, for me both truly great ‘rock’ albums, Queen II especially is just a massively under-rated record, with all its mysterious fantasy stuff going on, it’s like rock ‘ n roll Tolkien! But for a school reunion I think I’d just pick an album from the era when you guys were all at school together, and so they’d recognize the tracks, and so it would remind them of their school days, which I assume is the whole point, there’s really not much point picking an album from, say, 1974, if you all graduated in 1994, or vice-versa – though the best Queen party album for any occasion is The Platinum Collection, which is a 3-disc blockbuster, with many of their great singles they released from 1972 right up to their last album, thing plays for almost 4 hours without once repeating a track, so perfect for a party/reunion dinner or whatever.

    Most of my old college friends back in the early 1980’s as I recall unfortunately were heavily into stuff like Soft Cell, Spandau Ballet, Duran Duran, and Boy George, with me just about the sole guy in class wandering around every day in tatty old Lynyrd Skynyrd and Allman Brothers t-shirts, so if I ever get invited to a reunion, I seriously need to blow them off, that thing could easily turn into some cross-dressing/grown-men-in-lip-stick musical night from hell.

    Not my favourite Queen album, but the title track is my all-time favourite Queen song.

    As for a favourite album, it's really hard to choose, but I'm gonna have to go with "A Night at the Opera".

    A Night At the Opera, a shade ahead of Sheer Heart Attack (the first Queen album I got into).
