5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Queen Album Of the 80's, 30 Oct 2006
This review is from: The Works (Audio CD)
If you are new to the band Queen then this is where you should start because it offers the most classic Queen tracks (all of the singles which were released from this album).But there are no fillers, as the remaining tracks show. Aparently the concept of this album is the battle between humans and machines, this is reflected upon in the way that Queen's vocal and musical presence is in conflict with the synthesizers on the album. This gives the album a further boost to its credability

1. Radio Ga Ga - A classic pop/rock song of the eighties,complete with synthesizers and hand clapping in mind.

2. Tear it up - A impressive hard rock song from the mind and pen of Brian May.

3. Its a Hard Life - A fine slice of operatic brilliance.

4. Man on the prowl - Another fun song influenced by 50's rock and roll.

5. Machines (or back to humans) - The very song which brings out the theme of the album in a delicious cocktail of synthesizers, computer voice and mind bending guitar from Brian.

6. I want to Break Free - Another Queen classic, an incredible pop song.

7. Keep passing the open windows - A rock/ballad which has a feel good factor to it which is so typical of Freddie's writing.

8. Hammer to Fall - Another high powered rock song by Brian, a real explosion of sound.

9. Is this the world we created? - Probably the weakest song on the album, however its acoustic softness should win you over.

All in all its legendary, but it may not be legendary in terms of an album, but more so because it contains 9 great songs.
