2 stars After the 1st 5 fine Queen releases, this was a huge dissapointment to me. NEWS OF THE WORLD is a mess of overplayed anthemns, overblown rock, and the typical Freddie Mercury dance-hall music- none of which makes it for me. There is nothing memorable on NEWS OF THE WORLD like on earlier albums. Maybe Queen was just tired and had to fill a record company contract so just went throught the motions of making what had worked in the past? Whatever the reason, this is a very poor effort by a great band who should have been in their prime. 2 stars is a charitable gift. Stick to QUEEN, QUEEN II, or NIGHT AT THE OPERA. Even the semi-good DAY AT THE RACES is a step above this release.
