Hot Space - Was it really not so Hot, 20 Oct. 2002
Hop Space as an album has that extra bounce that makes it stand out from the rest of Queen's Albums. It gives us a large insite in to Freddie's full range of musicical talent which ranges from Rock, Opera, Pop and now dance and funk, as well as the versatility of Brian May's Guitar playing. But does this album really deserve all the flack that the press gave it.
The first for tracks (Staying Power,Dancer,Back Chat and Body Language) are mainly lively Discotec songs that would of first shocked any harder Queen fan.
Action this Day and Put out the Fire bring us back to the real rock motivated song that Queen produce so well as seen before in their last album The Game.
In this great mixture of an album two very heart felt songs Life is real(Song for Lennon) and The Words of Love involve us in deep emotion which most listerns may indentify too.
Then back to funk with Calling all Girls and Cool Cat but the grand Finale is one song that will live forever Under Pressure.
This song is the light at the end of the tunnel, Mercury and Bowie compliment each over so well and Deacon's bass line is pure genius. So is this album all bad.
No Not at all it just shows a groovy side to Queen and i think it has stood the test of time very well.
