3 stars The works is definitely not a bad album at all. While I love 70's Queen the most and wouldn't sit this among their best, it certainly showed that they had found thier feet for the 80's and this marked a new era for the band. Hats off to them I say, they had to somehow re-invent their sound with tracks like "Radio Gaga" and "I Want to Break Free" and they ended up being classics. There is quite a large share of the old styles on the album too such as the operatic rock tinged "Hard Life" and the rocking "Hammer To Fall". "Man On The Prowl" often gets slagged off but it is a decent bit of 50's rock and roll, a bit tongue in cheek perhaps but what's wrong with a bit of fun? And come on, even "Machines" is a good song! In fact there is quite a strong collection of songs here. Three and a half stars.
