This is one of Queen's best albums and a definite improvement from their last two albums. Contained here are Queen's two biggest U.S. hits - Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Another One Bites The Dust. From start to finish this album is great with some minor exceptions.
Play The Game - 9/10 nice opener and classic Freddie song
Dragon Attack - 9/10 each band member has their own solo in this one. great rocker
Another One Bites The Dust - 9/10 not my personal favorite but it was Queen's biggest single ever
Need Your Loving Tonight - 8/10 nice setup for the next track
Crazy Little Thing Called Love - 10/10 featuring Freddie on guitar for the first time. great song
Rock It (Prime Jive) - 8/10 duet by Roger and Freddie. good up-tempo song
Don't Try Suicide - 7/10 . good lyrics
Sail Away Sweet Sister - 10/10 a Brian May gem. Sung by both Freddie and Brian, this song is a masterpiece
Coming Soon - 7/10 sort of filler but still kinda fun
Save Me - 10/10 fantastic ballad to close this awesome album.
overall rating: 87/100 one of Queen's best albums. I also recommend A Night At The Opera,
Queen - Another One Bites the Dust
The bass line was inspired by the song "Good Times" by the Disco group Chic. In an interview with New Musical Express, Chic co-founder Bernard Edwards stated, "...that Queen record came about because that Queen bass player... spent some time hanging out with us at our studio".
Recording sessions were produced by Reinhold Mack at Musicland Studios in Munich (West Germany) and consisted of Deacon playing almost all the instruments: bass, piano, rhythm and lead guitars and handclap percussion. Roger Taylor added a drum loop and Brian May contributed some noises with his guitar and an Eventide Harmoniser. There are no synthesizers used in the song: all effects are created with pianos, guitars, and drums, with subsequent tape playback performed in reverse at various speeds. Finally, some sound effects were run through the Harmoniser for further processing. The effect of the Harmoniser can be heard clearly in the "swirling" nature of the sound immediately before the first lyric. During the mix the road crew suggested it as a single but the band did not like the idea until Michael Jackson recommended it after a concert. Freddie Mercury loved this track. Brian May recalled to Mojo magazine: "Freddie sung until his throat bled on Another One Bites The Dust. He was so into it. He wanted to make that song something special."
