1 stars SSSSSS......AGHHHHHHHRRRRR.....oh, no! Is this Queen? Are these the same guys who did genious pieces such as "Bohemian Rhapsody", "Prophet's song", "Death on two legs" and "The march of the black Queen" ? Yes, they are. Freddie Mercury used to be one of the best songwriters and piano players ever. Here he plays keyboards very rarely, and does Sh*tty pop songs like "Staying power". Brian May, Roger Taylor and John Deacon also took the poppy seed, here. I won't bother reviewing song by song 'cos they're basically all the same thing. Bad, poppy, uninspired songs. Some little shades of rock here and there, but, of course, no prog at all. Disco, pop, funk and all that trash that came out in the late 70's, dominate the album. Almost every cool band sold out and did poppy stuff in the 80's. For example, Genesis. But the difference is that these songs are bad, but Genesis still had their good stuff and some prog elements still running around. Maybe the best song here is "Under Pressure", this version being quite crappy with David Bowie(the worst thing that they could think of was bringing him in, and, so they did.They had to end it in a catastrophic way!) as a guest and a poppy beat. The live versions are a lot better. The other track that I stand is "Action this day" because, I got used to it. It's still like any other pop song. So what else can I say? This is a dissapointment and one of prog's worst enemies. Avoid it at all costs and...... ........LONG LIVE PROG!
