3 stars You know what I like of the reviews...Everybody can express their feelings on a records (good or bad) always supporting your point of view...Funny that I gave this 3 stars while others gave it 2 or 1 (someone could give 5 stars)...I would not say that is unfair, wrong, good or excellent, but its great that we discuss every record in these few lines (Without being offensive). Matter of tastes as I always say... For me The Game is Jazz with synthesisers...Jazz closed an era an the reason I gave it 3 stars (the same as this) is becuase they lose in some ways that EPIC mood of their previous records...Jazz is a joyful album as this one, the elements are the same, but the brand that made Queen great was somewhat lost in Jazz.

THE GAME is the first record with synthesisers...All the songs are pure pop...For some that hate pop I would assure that is BEARABLE pop...Play The Game is an outstanding ballad (the whole beginning is with synths making clear that nothing would be the same), Dragon Attack, Another one Bites the Dust, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, Don't Try Suicide are the catchy tracks and assure you to have a good time when hearing them...Deacon's Bass is one of the principal ingriedients of these songs...Maybe the lowest point of the record is Coming Soon...May's ballad Sail Away is good but not his best ever...And Prime Jive is pure Rock and Roll...sung by Taylor.

I guess is the first album produced by Mack and the sound is pretty nice...Progressive?...Definitely not...But I guarantee you that you will have a fantastic time spinning this one...A Queen's essential, but in the progressive field not essential.

Remember You have the last word...Respects CS...
