3.0 out of 5 stars The end of an era 13 Feb 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is for me the last 'proper' Queen album. As most fans know, this is the first album to acknowledge the use of a synthesiser, although to be fair it is a fairly gentle introduction. Unlike subsequent albums, which were submerged by them, and the rather shiney production values of the time.

Anyway, as I say the synth largely takes a back seat throughout the usual mix of styles, and it has to be said that as usual, the mix of styles produced mixed results. I will assume that 'Another One Bites the Dust' and 'Crazy Little Thing called Love' need no introduction. So what of the 'filler'? Well, I'm not a ballad man, but I have to say 'Play the Game' and 'Save Me' are the best Queen ever did, being sufficiently rocked up to raise them above Queen's usual tales of heartbreak and woe. My standout track though, is 'Dragon Attack', a song which I believe has never got the praise it deserves. I've seen it described as a disco track before. Hmm. It does have a funky, laid back bassline, but the barrage of stinging guitar that May unleashes after the 2nd chorus until the end of the song suggests to me it is one of Queen's finest rock songs. I mean, you couldnt imagine the Bee Gees singing this one.

So, now I have to be a bit controversial. There is some dross on here. Mostly from the pens of John Deacon and Roger Taylor. Fantastic musicians they may be (Deacon especially) but not the strongest songwriters for me I'm afraid. Yes, I know they wrote some of Queen's biggest hits between them, but they also wrote most of the worst of the rest. The worst example here is 'Coming Soon', one of their weakest ever and would be on the Queen 'worst of'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Queen preparing for the new decade 1 Aug 2011
Format:Audio CD
This was the first Queen album that sounded totally different to their previous releases. Also the first album to use synthesisers, which to many Queen fans was sacrelidge...but youve got to move with the times....and that doesnt mean follow trends, but you have to change and adapt to new technology and thats what Queen did here. Sure theres plenty of awful music created using synthesisers, but theres also good music.

I think your enjoyment of this album depends on your belief that Queen had no business straying from the rock template they followed throughout the 70s. But even earlier releases hinted at a broadening range of styles (Get Down Make Love from NOTW) something Queen had been doing since the start.

Of the songs on this album, there are a couple of, in my opinion, weak tracks which prevent it from getting 5 stars, but enough strong tracks in order to be well worth 4 stars. And i think that any non-Queen fan listening too this with an open mind would enjoy it without skipping many of the tracks. Its a good pop/rovck album, end of story. And the production is miles better and clearer than Jazz, which was just a mess.

The weak tracks for me are Coming Soon and (i know many people love this song) Sail Away Sweet Sister! The former sounds like a filler track and the latter just sounds like a typical Brian May song that he had been writing for the previous 4 albums! I just doesn fit the rest of the albums sound to my ears. Rock It (Prime Jive) isnt the best Roger song either...and I think thats 2 albums where he offered weaker tracks (Fun It and More of thet Jazz from Jazz are in the same vein).

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rock Swing songs 24 Oct 2013

I was not fully aware of this album content, just knew the hits, like ' Another One Bites the Dust', 'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' and 'Save Me'.
I particularly love this last tune and its video, it quite amazed me when I heard it the first time when I was a kid.
It's a great Queen album, full of rock and the incomparable voice of Freddy Mercury.

Recommended !
