2 stars 3/10

My God. I can not even digest it.

But what is a remarkable change ... even for the worst. Queen has made considerable changes in their music, turning his pop-rock including rock and R & B, soul, disco-music and synth-pop. I can only say one thing: God help us.

Yes, I join the great chorus and announce to everyone that Hot Space is the worst album of the band, the bottom (or perhaps beyond). The only reason I give it two stars is that there are some songs on the B side that really are decent, but a great classic that I really love and that is one of my favorite songs of them, although the album does not do justice .

The classic in question can only be Under Pressure. The collaboration with David Bowie is one of the strengths of the band's history and actually saves the album in his last moments of his mediocrity when hiring a sound that is closer to previous albums and distance than was shown here. That's probably because it was written and released as single from the album before it is released. Other "highlights" here are Life Is Real, Calling All Girls and Las palabras de Amor.

Now the rest ... save yourselves! A fully disposable material, perhaps the worst that the Queen has ever produced. Oh, how I miss the days of The March of the Black Queen, and Rhapsody Bohemiam ... what's here does not remember these classics!

Fortunately that was done here was here. Queen began to return to its roots gradually, but the fact is they were never the same. Anyway I like any material that comes before and after Hot Space (except, perhaps, Flash Gordon), but this work ... no, sorry but no. Two pious stars.
