Just wondering if the Violent Femmes ever made it on there. I was looking for the most updated version of the list and it didn't look like it.

Where is the final frozen list?

I don't care what you people say, I know I don't need that Queen album, and I ain't buying it. Other than that, I'll start knocking down what I don't already own on future record store trips.

I felt the same way about Queen for years and years. And then I don't even know what song it was, but I heard something on classic rock radio, and I was just blown away by the sound of it. The thing about Queen (and I'll admit this is pretty geeky) is that everything is recorded so perfectly: perfect guitar tones, awesome sounding drums, cool electirc pianos... Over a period of time when most other mainstream bands' production decisions don't hold up very well, you can go back and listen to Queen albums and they always sound timeless. My two favorite Queen songs are "Killer Queen" and "You're My Best Friend." But I'll always have a soft spot for "Another One Bites the Dust" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love." The Game was actually the first album I bought with my own money.

Well, granted, I actually like the songs you mentioned. But any time I've ever ventured off the Queen path blazed by basic classic rock radio, I've been pretty disappointed with them. Plus, even the stuff I do like isn't great enough for me to go out and get an album. The stuff I don't like makes me gag--just the backup vocals on "Somebody to Love"....ugh. And those vocals turn up all over the place in their songs.

I will admit my previous post had a bit more vitriol than necessary, but I'll still skip the Queen.

For the past four months, I've been going through a Queen phase after liking them as a child and then disowning them when I got older. I'm revisiting them as of late and their albums, including the one on the GloNo list, are pretty spotty. I just made a 20 track comp of their work from "News Of The World" up to "The Game" and it was tough (for me) coming up with 20 cuts that I enjoyed.
But to echo Jake, Queen along with Roy Thomas Baker were masterful in the studio. The songs sound great but sometimes Queen's idiosyncrasies got the best of them with their song selection. At times, a producer not only needs to get a good tone out of the artist their working with, they also need to be able to stand up to an artist and tell them that a song like "Fun It" (from 'Jazz') ain't worth putting on tape.
