4.0 out of 5 stars Unfashionably Brilliant Queen 25 July 2000
By Joe
Format:Audio CD
Jazz came out during the peak of punk, and showed that Queen had lost none of the pomp and bombast of their early days. This album saw them once again ploughing their uniqie furrow across a broad range of styles from hard rock through jazz and rock'n'roll to acoustic ballads. Opening with the ludicrous but oddly wonderful Mustapha, it is Freddie who dominates, his vocals soaring over all the album's best moments such as the stunning single Don't Stop Me Now and the cheeky (no pun intended) Fat Bottomed Girls. Throughout he is ably assisted by guitarist Brian May, whose liquid playing on the heavier Dead on Time and Let Me Entertain You are also high points. This album has often been overlooked by the public, perhaps overshadowed by the punk phenomenon - but also maybe because the production sounds slightly tinny compared with other, fuller Queen releases. That doesn't, however, disguise the quality of songs such as In Only Seven days and Leaving Home Ain't Easy - the latter being one of May's best, more poignant Queen moments. It's fair to say that drummer Roger Taylor's contributions towards the end of the album are not his best, and thus a star deducted. But this is still a record to come back to time and time again for sheer variety, slick musicianship - and breathtaking confidence! Great fun, and for all budding musos out there - the best inner sleeve ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Poster 18 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
I recall buying this on vinyl when i was 11 and opening up the poster than came with it...ahhh happy days indeed.

But im not rating the poster, im rating the album!

So, firstly, Mustapha....what a great opening track, totally bonkers, but i love it. Dont Stop Me Now is the best Queen track ever written (IMO) and any alnum with it on must be half decent.

Like most Queen albums (like most albums by anyone) there is some filler. Im not that keen on More of that Jazz or Fun It...but the harder tracks (If You Cant Beat Em and Dead On Time) are good, if not classics. Again i think Brians Leaving Home is a weak track and you could take a lot of his songs from the late 70s and stick them on a Brian solo album rather than on a Queen album and it wouldnt have impacted the Queen album

Seven Days and Jealousy are both good, simple tracks from Freddie.

So probably not as strong as NOTW and Queen needed to change something as the 80s approached, which they managed with ease with The Game. Id give this 3.5 stars, but as i cant, benefit of the doubt gives it a 4 rather than a 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Queen's late seventies european romp 27 Jun 2011
By delta
Format:Audio CD
Queen teetering on rock mountain at the end of the 70's before their leap towards the pop drenched 80s. Its got some fantastic moments; Dead On Time is one of May's greatest riffs and Jealousy is a bona fide Mercury classic. Mustapha is quite literally mad..... the song that has benefited most from this overhaul and infinitely better than the 1994 cd release. Of course it has the singles Don't Stop Me Now, Bicycle race and Fat Bottomed Girls... all three showing Queen at their most playful.The extras are OK but as with the other releases it suggests that there isn't that much left in the old Queen volts......

5.0 out of 5 stars The last great Queen album! 19 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
I love this album! Has to be THE most overlooked Queen album! Remember when Queen albums sounded like they'd spent ages writing 'em and the songs weren't just bashed out on a synth? This is the last one! The ensuing 'Game' with its hollow sounding production (even 'Save Me' sounded washed-out compared to the single mix!)was for me, a massive let-down after Jazz and its predecessor, the titanic News of the World...
Anyway! What has Jazz got?-the lot! Great songs, great production (Roy Thomas Baker!) and the classic Queen quirkiness. 'Mustapha' starts off sounding like a 'Game' song, then Brian's gorgeous guitar comes crashing in and all fears are banished! Fat Bottomed Girls has extended May riffery transforming the track from its single incarnation to a self-respecting rocker. 'Jealousy' is a bit of vintage Mercury (RIP)swoonery..what a gorgeous song! At this point I must mention Deacon's 'In Only Seven Days'...surely the best and most poignant holiday romance song ever penned! Absolute perfection; rather than using synths, May orchestrates away in the background, Fred laments for all he is worth, and the final, 'Oh so sad, alone' lyric leaves you imagining the bereft vacationer's plight!A classic!
May is on form...'Dead on Time' Rocks! And this is the album with the seminal and wonderful 'Don't Stop Me Now'. Another classic.
'If You Can't Beat Them' is a melodic multi-layered Deacon-penned rocker with a brilliant phase-shifted outro section. 'Let Me Entertain You' is here too! Not to mention others such as the wistful 'Leaving Home Ain't Easy', a May corker with vintage lush-sounding Queen vocal harmonies. Wow. If you like Queen get this classic! I never could understand why this album has been so overlooked!

3.0 out of 5 stars The good, the bland and the funky 9 Oct 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For some reason, this is the Queen album that seems to divide opinion the most; I don't know why as it is certainly no worse than any of the other albums released during the band's golden era. But then, its not completely brilliant either. As ever Queen stretch themselves over a variety of styles, which, as usual, makes for an ambitious if inconsistent record.

So what has Mr Fusspot deemed good? Well, for a kick off we have Queen's best ever song, and i do mean best: 'Dead on Time'. Never heard of it? No, it wasn't a hit, and as far as i know, never (or only rarely) played live. Shame, as it rocks like a swear word. Never has Brian May's guitar sounded quite this angry, and even his words are fairly aggressive. Topped off with a thunderclap at the end (courtesy of God, apparently) this really is an undiscovered classic. I know the heavier stuff isn't for everyone, but hey, Queen are usually referred to as a rock band so I am assuming that a potential buyer has some interest in the genre. Anyway, 'Fat Bottomed Girls' is a goodun, a more laid back slab of rock; 'Bicycle Race' is a clever pop type song that gives Freddie Mercury a chance to list all the things he doesn't like; 'Leaving Home aint Easy' is a ballad style song full of May's typically earnest musings. The album closer, 'More of that Jazz' is a reasonable Roger Taylor sung rocker with a catchy stuttering drum motif. The last in the good batch, 'Let Me Entertain You', is a rare Freddie up tempo guitar led song, but it highlights my main gripe with this album; its too quiet. This song in particular has always sounded muffled and the remastering has done little to alter that, but maybe its just my ears that are faulty.

As for the bad...
