5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 6 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a truly fantastic album, the 1977 follow up of "A Day at the Races". Whether you're a Queen fan or not, you'll know at least two of these songs as the album opens with Brian's "We Will Rock You" and Freddie's "We Are The Champions". So if you've never bought any Queen before, this is a good place to start! Personally, my favourite tracks are "Spread Your Wings", the epic and emotional "It's Late" and "My Melancholy Blues", a spectacular and powerful blues-style masterpiece. As I was brought up on Queen, I love this album, there isn't a single track on it I don't like but I think anyone would think this, life long fan or not! I highly recommend it to anyone, young or old! I'm only 17 but still think it's fantastic, Queen still have, (and always will have!) that special something, whether it's in Brain's outstanding talents, Freddie's beautiful voice or just the combination of the right people at the right time. So if you're young, I still recommend you buy this - you won't regret it, they're fantastic!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stripped Down. Well, Almost... 19 Nov 2003
Format:Audio CD
After the everything-including-the-kitchen-sink production of "A Night At The Opera" and its follow-up "A Day At The Races", where on Earth could Queen go? Somewhere completely different is the answer this album provides.
Despite opening with two of Queen's most famous anthems (the second of which, "We Are The Champions", is possibly their most classically Queen-sounding single alongside "Bohemian Rhapsody"), this album is largely free of the bombastic, grandiloquent production which had become their trademark. This was 1977, the year of punk, and this album seems to represent Queen acknowledging the shift in public tastes to embrace a more stripped down, fuzzier, dirtier sound. Their equivalent of recording in the garage, perhaps - albeit a garage decorated with Persian rugs, chandeliers, marble cherubs, and fountains spewing champagne.
"Sheer Heart Attack" is the most prominent example of this. Fast, energetic and intense (and a staple encore in their live set for a few years subsequently), this is Queen letting off steam in a way most unusual for them on record.
The tender and melancholy "All Dead, All Dead", written and sung by Brian May, immediately switches the mood, and is one of only three songs containing his marque complex multitracked guitar work.
John Deacon's "Spread Your Wings" is simply beautiful; a narrative lyric about an unhappy young man's resolve to escape the confines of his small-town existence, dead-end job under a sneering boss and "leave his dead life behind". The sparse production adds an extra dimension to the song - I could be a little over-analytical here and suggest that it emphasises the emptiness of the protagonist's life and the desperation of his plight, but that would be a bit pretentious. Oh well, I've done it now anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars A massive return to form 20 Feb 2006
By Jane Aland VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
In many ways Queen’s 6th studio album News Of The World represents a bridge between the earlier more operatic flamboyant Queen and the bands straightforward pop of the 1980’s. Once easily the most musically dominant member of the band, Freddie Mercury’s contribution to this album is noticeably reduced, and it may well be that with the development of Roger Taylor and John Deacon as songwriters (here contributing four songs between them) that there simply was no longer room for the more over-the-top experimental tracks of the past, which gives a harder edge to this album than A Day At The Races. The band retain their 70’s penchant for genre-hopping however, which makes News Of The World a very varied album, and the songwriting is incredibly high throughout.
The biggest indication of the strength of this album is the fact that it opens with the ferociously strong double opener of ‘We Will Rock You’ and ‘We Are The Champions’ yet still manages to maintain it’s high quality for the rest of it’s length. Next up is Roger Taylor’s ‘Sheer Heart Attack’, a very tough rock track which is basically Queen doing punk (amusingly the Sex Pistols were recording at the same studio around this time) complete with squealing feedback and some very choppy guitars from Roger. The complete opposite of this comes next with ‘All Dead, All Dead’, a very sombre and mournful piano-based ballad by Brian May, who also provides the lead vocals. John Deacon’s ‘Spread your Wings’ was a surprising non-hit single from the album, a great rock song with a powerful chorus it’s hard to see why this one didn’’t do well in the charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars The end of an era? 26 Mar 2002
By M. D. Rathbone VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This album marked the end of "early Queen" (in my opinion) before the raw, hard edge gave way to a more polished and studio-based feel with later albums.
Hardly a bad track on it (although "Fight from the Inside" and "Get Down, Make Love" won't be to everyone's taste) the highlights are certainly the delightful Deacon classic "Spread Your Wings" and the energetic, rocky "It's Late" in which Brian and Roger really let go!
In being drawn to the more obvious tracks ("Champions" and "Rock You") don't overlook the hidden gems including "Sleeping on the Sidewalk" and "All Dead, All Dead" (both with Brian on lead vocals) and Freddie's "My Melancholy Blues" which ends the album on a poignant note as Freddie opens his heart to us at the piano!
