1 stars OUCH !!! ALL DEAD! ALL DEAD!

Attention ! This album seriously hurts. Believe me!

One of their worse effort. But be prepared for several albums of this calibre, unfortunately. Disco beat "Coming Soon ", poor music "Don't Try Suicide"

But the two hits from this album are just the corresponding answer to "Fat Bottomed Girls" from "Jazz". I can't stand these, but apparently lots of people love them. So.

The most difficult task is to define the poorest one of all. Is it "Dragon Attack" (very difficult to describe), the childish "Need Your Loving Tonight" or the insipid "Sail Away Sweet Sister" ?

One good news about the original album : it was very short (less than thirty-five minutes). The second one is that there will even be a good tracks in here. A typical "Queen" number Play The Game. One good song only, this is below average for a Queen album.

Avoid it by all means if you want to keep yourself alive and be able to rock at Brighton. This album has not won the ogre battle. The one who tells you so is just a liar. I understand that these days weren' t the modern times of rock 'n' roll and that the band weren' in the lap of the gods while writing this album.

I guess the band should have better been inspired if they would have been lazing on a Sunday afternoon. They could have remained one of my best friends. But these were probably some prophets songs. Not at all the love of my life. After listening to such an album, I'm just dead on my two legs and my breath has been taken away.

I can't spread my wings because we are not the champions anymore. And from father to son I say : All dead! All dead!

Don't expect any prog in here. Maybe for their next album? This one stinks.
