Trick easily. ADATR is an ok album at most.
It's hard for me to respect Queen, though. Hot Space, The Game and A Kind of Magic feature some of the things I hate the most in music...and the opening of News of the World with two boring and repetitive arena rock stinkers like We Will Rock You and We Are the Champions makes me cringe. A really uneven band with very, very few flashes of brilliance hidden inside a pile of crap.
Two random guys agreed to shake hands. Just Because. They felt like it, you know. It was an agreement of sorts...a random agreement.

Well, I love Queen (in 70's they were great whoever thinks otherwise), but ADATR are IMO a slight regress comparing to the first four albums (have to say I like NOTW a Jazz mote than ADATR). So Genesis gets my vote. If there'd be any from Queen's first four records in this poll, I'd vote Queen for sure.

easily Genesis.  The only Queen album I really like is A Night at the Opera, and it's not as good as ATOTT either

Good God - we agree on something!!!
