2 stars actual rating- 1.5. This is the album where Queen started to be crappy pop junk. It has its (very few) ok moments, including the Opening semi title track, which features melodic Queen at its best. However the rest of the album is all pop junk, with a few alright moments. If you're expecting the fantasy riff laden metal of their second album in Dragon Attack, I'm sorry to disappoint, but its like some bass driven funk pop crap. By the way, this is probably Queen's least progressive album. Another One Bites the Dust is an overrated piece of crap, however its somewhat catchy, therefore its about a centimeter above the other pop songs. Need your loving tonight is typical pop junk. Crazy Little Thing Called Love gets my repesct for being different, although I do not like the song. Its like a 50's rock song, with all its swingin' rhythms and such. I do not care for this song, but at least its not pop crap like the rest.

Rock it is another lame song. Not creative in anyway. Don't Try Suicide has a good message, but I doubt anyone ever heard it because this song sucks badly. Ugh. Sail Away Sweet Sister is a pretty good song, its very melodic and is more like their old poppy stuff. Its not terrific though. Coming soon=pop junk. Save me i alright as well, however its hard to even put this in to have to skip all the crap songs.

I hate to give Queen such a low score (I love other Queen albums), but this steaming pile of crap deserves it. If your a fan, you may enjoy a few of the pop songs, but its just a terrible album I think. Highlights are: Play the Game, Sail Away Sweet Sister and Save Me, then everything else sucks fairly bad.
