Freddie - there's brilliance in his solo works but they fall short from Queen's greatness simply because he misses the positive feedback from his band mates. "Guide Me Home / How Can I Go On" are simple, yet wondrous tracks.

Brian - Queen's essential sound lives on through his albums, and then some variety. I wouldn't be surprised if most people who aren't Queen hardcore fans enjoyed that sound above anything else solo. "Last Horizon" is still relevant today.

Roger - I enjoy his albums more than Freddie's and Brian's. More to listen to and more varied. It also helps that he tried something different with The Cross, which gave us a few good songs that might not have happened otherwise.
Just to pick one song that hasn't been mentioned yet, how about "Let's Get Crazy"? Very fun track that pumps me up.

In any case, it is beyond debate that John's solo career is the most consistent of them all. Hats off.

"... they fall short from Queen's greatness simply because he misses the positive feedback from his band mates" is a comment that suits any of them (in fact it suits more to Brian and Roger), I don't understand why do you feel it applies only to Freddie.

The whole point of solo projects is to get rid of the usual sound and band mates (while taking full advantage of the band's reputation when it comes to individually sign with record companies).
Bringing into discussion the solo work as opposed to group work is redundant and leads to nowhere.
