2 stars Here is where Queen went completely into the realm of bubblegum pop music. The best thing I can say about the album is that it compares to the last few 10CC albums, where that band was completely irrelevant.

While the production managed to get this album some airplay, mostly with Anotherone Bites The Dust, a fairly empty, boring, bass drive tune (I'm sure you've heard it) and Crazy Little Thing Called Love an Elvis imitation (how original), the album is pretty much forgettable.

There is a moment for about ten seconds in the middle of the opening track, Play The Game, where it sounds as if the band is going to break into something interesting. But alas, it doesn't last. And they do try some hard rock in Dragon Attack, but it's a pale song in comparison with their earlier hard rock works.

This Game? Tilt! Game over.
