5.0 out of 5 stars Some good stuff..., 5 Dec 2013
This review is from: The Works (Audio CD)
As an ardent fan of 70's Queen, this would certainly not be my favourite Queen album.
A lot of the songs - like 'Tear It Up' and 'Keep Passing The Open Windows' are quite mediocre and are not that interesting for me. But it is still Queen, and that always means not without genius.
'It's A Hard Life' is a fantastic ballad, with strong similarities to the bands earlier albums-it could have sat perfectly in the albums 'Sheer Heart Attack' or 'A Night At The Opera'.
The other two best known songs from the album are Radio Gaga, which is very smooth and catchy and difficult not to like, and 'I Want To Break Free' which has been used as an anthem of those struggling for freedom throughout the world:
"I Want to Break Free
I Want to Break Free
From your Lies'
You're so self-satisfied I
Don't need you'
...
Then there is the superb enviromental song 'Is This The World We Created' - actually an underrated piece.
'If there's a G-D looking down
What can He think of what we've done
To the world that he created?'

Absolutely.
All in all the album is not bad.
Buy it once you've bought all of Queen's 70's albums.
