This is the most hated Queen album - unfairly. The only weak songs on here are the mega-sleazy Body Language and the pointless Calling All Girls. Every other song on the album is an improvement on these - the genius of Under Pressure, the wonderful Las Palabras, the topical Put Out the Fire, and the authentic Lennonism of Life is Real. Even the funk songs, aside from Body Language, are worth listening to. The fact is that this album is far more inventive and interesting than the two which came on either side of it: The Game, which is good but not very varied or innovative, and The Works, whose for best songs are available on one compilation, leaving a five-track disc of good but unnotable tracks. Hot Space is a far better album. Buy this - it is worth the money.
