QUEEN News Of The World (1993 Dutch Digital Master Series 11-track CD the sixth studio album by the British rock group originally released in 1977 including the singles We Will Rock You We Are The Champions and Spread Your Wings; lyric booklet picture sleeve and gold crest logo stickered case)

Amazon.co.uk

Famous for its anthemic opening salvo, "We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions"--at once an acknowledgement of and delight in their new-found stadium status--it's possible to see News Of The World as the last album of Queen's "classic" period, when their fusion of gaudy operatics, tearful ballads and '70s guitar-rock came together most congruently and well. With "Spread Your Wings" the band crafted another of their typically artful paeans to hedonistic freedom, and "My Melancholy Blues" is one of Freddie Mercury's most engaging displays of self-indulgence--though they stepped up the pace appreciably on "Sheer Heart Attack," which proved that they could match anyone for sheer muscle, when the urge seized them. The album's most successful cut, however--Brian May's "It's Late"--successfully married the guitarist's power chord-fetish with Mercury's infatuated romantic melodrama: the result, overblown on both counts, stands as a near-definitive record of this band and their sound. --Andrew McGuire

Coming on the back of Queen's biggest albums of the time - A Night at the Opera and A day at the Races - this record was a marked change in style, both songwriting and production wise. Whereas those two records were dripping with overdubs and high production values, News of the World revelled in more straight forward drum/bass & guitar numbers such as We Will Rock You, It's Late and the lovely blues pastiche Sleeping On The Sidewalk. That's not to say the big numbers aren't there - We Are The Champions is a stadium classic and how Spread Your Wings didn't make it on to any of the Greatest Hits albums remains a mystery. But there are less celebrated gems here like Brian May's All Dead All Dead and, best of all, Freddie's most overlooked song, My Melancholy Blues - a beautiful jazz lounge number that Queen pull off perfectly. A favourite with many Queen fans, this album showed all four members making significant contributions throughout, and marked a turning phase with its more democratic approach to songwriting. From its great sci-fi magazine parody sleeve to the cracking songs within, this is a terrific album. Well worth a listen - and for any Queen fans that don't have it - for shame!

This is a truly fantastic album, the 1977 follow up of "A Day at the Races". Whether you're a Queen fan or not, you'll know at least two of these songs as the album opens with Brian's "We Will Rock You" and Freddie's "We Are The Champions". So if you've never bought any Queen before, this is a good place to start! Personally, my favourite tracks are "Spread Your Wings", the epic and emotional "It's Late" and "My Melancholy Blues", a spectacular and powerful blues-style masterpiece. As I was brought up on Queen, I love this album, there isn't a single track on it I don't like but I think anyone would think this, life long fan or not! I highly recommend it to anyone, young or old! I'm only 17 but still think it's fantastic, Queen still have, (and always will have!) that special something, whether it's in Brain's outstanding talents, Freddie's beautiful voice or just the combination of the right people at the right time. So if you're young, I still recommend you buy this - you won't regret it, they're fantastic!

When Queen released this album Punk and New Wave were about to change the music that a generation of teenagers bought. So from the beginning this album was unlikely to be received as well as previous Queen albums - and it wasn't.

Certainly there is nothing on this album that matches Bohemian Rhapsody from two years earlier. However, I prefer this album to "A Night At The Opera" over all. For me the anthemic qualities of "We are the Champions" and "Spread Your Wings", together with the stylistic variety of "Sleeping on the Sidewalk" (Rhythm and Blues) and "My Melancholy Blues" (Piano Ballad) is what made Queen such a great band. Sometimes its the little things on this album that I really like, such as Roger Taylors fabulous drum break at 2:48 near the end of "Sheer Heart Attack". If that isn't enough have a listen "Its Late". As the Amazon reviewer said this is the best track on the album. If I had to pick only one Queen track this would be it. Its over 6 minutes long but it has everything you'd expect from a great Queen track. The only quick way I can think of describing it is that they should have performed it at Live Aid - it would have fitted perfectly into the great set they did there.

There are a few weak tracks in my view, hence only 4 stars, but overall this a better album than its given credit for. Any Queen fan will know this already, but for anybodyelse, apart from a compilation this is as a good a place to start if you're buying Queen for the first time.

Queen' formed way back in 1970, 'John Deacon' joining in 1971 which gave us the
four that first hit the charts with the single 'Seven seas of Rhye' March 1974' the
number reaching number 10..........'Freddie Mercury' 'Brian May' 'Roger Taylor'
and 'John Deacon' now began their legendary journey.
The group wrote nearly all their own material from the word go, for me 'Queen' were
the best instrumental outfit i can remember down the years, they were also vocally
superb, front man 'Freddie Mercury' great voice and extraordinary showman.
When the group wrote 'Bohemian Rhapsody' they were unsure how it would be received
by the public at large, must say, the first time i heard it i remember saying, ''that's next
weeks number one, of course it was the 1975 hit remained at number one for nine weeks,
their fourth release had launched the group into super-stardom.
This album was released in 1977 and contained a bucket-full of great sounds including
chart hits ---'We Will Rock You' (anybody see 'A Knight's Tale' ? the song opened a
jousting tournament, one of the funniest film sequences i can remember....priceless)
'We Are The Champions' the two songs mentioned were first release as a double 'A'
release reaching number two in October 1977, 'We Will Rock You' re-released in 2000
reaching the top-spot.
Other memorable tracks on-board include --'Sheer Heart Attack' .....'All Dead All Dead'
'It's Late' and 'Who Needs You' (listen to 'Roger's drumming in the number 'It's Late'
If I'm being honest, i love just about all the music 'Queen' ever released down the years
before, sadly, extrovert vocalist 'Freddie Mercury' passed away 24th November 1991
aged just '45' of course 'Bohemian Rhapsody' along with 'These are the Days of our
Lives' topped the chart in December that year for five weeks.
