Hot Space [Bonus Track]

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
After turning out a movie soundtrack and a greatest hits LP, Queen finally got around to following up its chart-topping 1980 album The Game with Hot Space. Taking a cue from the spare, rhythmic style of the previous album's hits, "Another One Bites The Dust" and "Crazy Little Thing Called Love," the band took an austere, beat-heavy dance floor approach again, but without as much distinctiveness. The biggest American hit, "Body Language" #11 U.S., #25 U.K. was typical, with Freddie Mercury intoning "Give me your body" over and over, while such songs as "Back Chat" #40 U.K. were straight disco tracks. "Calling All Girls" #60 U.S. was pleasant enough, however, as far as ...

"Calling All Girls" #60 U.S. was pleasant enough, however, as far as rewrites of "Shakin' All Over" go, and "Las Palambras De Amor," the biggest U.K. hit #17, was closer to their old rock choir approach. The album also contained the year-old single "Under Pressure," by Queen & David Bowie.

    The Weakest Album They Ever Made

    It's true. There isn't much to enjoy here - unless you like really bad dance music. I'm a huge fan of A Night at the Opera, Sheer Heart Attack, and other early work. Unfortuantely, they were trying to bend with the times - and it didn't work. At all. Somehow AllMusicGuide gives this as many stars as the far better Innuendo. Even if you enjoyed Queen's 70's music, don't take it for granted that you will like this, because you probably won't

    What can I say? It's hot! (popeme@clearlake.k12.ia.us)

    Hot space is a musical jewel. I love it dearly. My mom has a record, that was how I was introduced to it. Staying Power: wonderfully rockin song. Just kind of weird. Dancer: Great song I love it. Catchy. Back Chat: one of Queen's finest. Tells a past girl(or boy)friend to shove it up their @$$. Body Language: suggestive, all I got to say. Action this day: A wonderful song. Sounds kind of 'gangish' if you know what I mean. Put out the fire: kind of strange, but that's what I love about Queen. Life is real: kewl song. really kewl. Calling All girls: awesome song, don't know what else to say. Las Palabras de Amor: One of the best songs of all time. everybody should listen to it. Cool Cat: cool. Be cool now. Under Pressure: w/ David Bowie. I love this collaboration.
