4 stars OK NOT all Queen records can be called "progressive". I don't mind about categories, Queen never cared about it too. They changed their sound, the 70's were over and if they still would have sounded like on "A day at the races" no-one would care about Queen anymore.

So "The Game" is just another Queen classic. I love to listen to this record, the funk songs are great and NONE of this tracks can be called a pop song.

Play the game is a typical Queen song, nice opener but not my favorite track on this record.

Dragon attack is a great funk/rock song with a brilliant bass-line, it has a nice screaming guitar solo in the middle.

Another one bites the dust...same style, so both songs fit together brilliant. A classic, i like it but i prefer Dragon Attack.

Need your loving tonight is a typical Deacon song, he always had these happy-melodies and nice harmonies. Nice song, if you like "Who needs you" or "You and I" you will also like that one.

Crazy little thing called love ... As said before a song in the early 50's style, its something different, they've done it later again with "man on the prowl". I think the song is ok but I don't love it that much.

Rock it is a great Roger song, intro sung by Freddie. I like the effect on Roger's voice. Nice rocker with a great guitar solo.

Don't try suicide is somehow strange, its a mix between Rock & Rock n Roll la "Crazy little thing", wheather you love this one or you hate it. I like it quite much I have to say.

Sail away sweet sister ... is one of Brian's best compositions, its a shame they never played it live. If you like Queen's ballads like "Teo Torriatte" this one is for you.

Coming soon .. another catchy pop/rock tune, very groove like most of Queen's material during this period. I like it.

Save me is one of the greatest songs I know, very touching lyrics, nice harmonies, great guitar solo. One of Queen's great ballads....and they have lots of nice ones :)

So if you're openminded and like ROCK MUSIC and not just PROG this record is for you. In my opinion Queen never released a "bad" record, they just did some expreriments. And I consider this to be PROGRESSIVE too.
