Customer Review

on 14 October 2008
In 1981 fan's were expecting 'The Game' part 2-- more pop rock-- and were shocked by 'Hot Space' an unabashedly funky disco album. Fan backlash (ie lack of sales) caused the band to go on hiatus and pretty well sunk them in the US. All rather a shame, as taking 'Hot Space' on it's own terms makes it a very entertaining album to take, full of catchy funk and disco, plus some soaring pop rockers on side 2 that mark some of Queen's most underrated material. Indeed, as an LP side 2 is much stronger than side 1, whiche ended with the pretty woeful 'Action This Day'. But 'Put Out The Fire', 'Calling All Girls', 'Las Palabras D.Amour' are all terrific songs-very much in the vein of 'The Game' and the album ends with the classic Bowie collaboration 'Under Pressure'. Tracks 1-5 are the funk/disco songs, some pretty good: 'Staying Power', 'Dancer' and the minor hit 'Body language' are all fine, but are far softer in elctronic/synth execution.
