Default Queen's Very Underrated Progressive Music

Queen, famous for its many hits, over-the-top live performances, and of course the beloved frontman Freddie Mercury, and one of the most successful acts of all time, composed a significant amount of progressive material that is often overshadowed by their bigger hits.

Examples of this include (chronologically)

Queen II
(Nearly all of the album Queen II)

Shear Heart Attack
Now I'm Here

A Night at the Opera
Death on Two Legs (Dedicated To...)
The Prophet's Song

News of the World
Get Down, Make Love

A Kind of Magic
Princes of the Universe

And so on.

I find the Prophet's song to be the best of these. Take a look.
