Great tunes.  Terrible production.

I'm not really sure about how each member felt about the album.

It's all about order of tracks. Roy and boys didn't get that puzzle right.

I agree, I would also dump Fun It and while I love More of That Jazz I'd remove the section that contains excerpts of other songs.  Also I love the version of Don't Stop Me Now that blends into Jealousy (not sure if that is real but it works really well)

I like it, I think the guitar riffs are great. But the lyrics are very weak, and the part with little segments of every song of the album is not cool at all.

Sums it up really, I hate the way the album sounds. Its very 'thin'. The mash up of songs on 'More of That Jazz' is a desperate low point and for some reason Roger thought his kit should sound like he was in a reggae band for this album. The lyrics for 'In Only Seven Days' sound like some 15 year old kid writing a poem for a girl he fancies. 40% killer..... 60% filler. Bookended by probably Queens worst 2 songs. Certainly up to that point anyway.

Even roger thought his songs on Jazz wern't very good.....I agree that the album had killer tunes with weak production... a shame because roger has some killer drum work in there....

Totally agree.  Although this album was really the beginning of the end of great music by Queen.

I'm on the fence about this album. It's very eclectic for sure. I've always thought one of their most underrated songs was "If You Can't Beat em Join em"....great upbeat song. The heavy rocker's on it "Let Me Entertain You, Fat Bottom Girls, and Dead on Time" are all good, but this album falls off pretty bad with the 2 duds Roger does and the sappy ass "Dreamer's Ball" & "Jealousy"...."In Only Seven Days" was about the only lite selection I can stomach on this album. So in closing its basically an album that has some very good gems on it surrounded by filler...I too agree they just didn't get the track sequence right either for this album.

JAZZ is still one of my favourite albums. Not as good as SHA or ANATO but somewhere close to Top 5.There's not a single song on it that I don't like.

To be honest, there isn't a single song I don't like until HOT SPACE and that song is BODY LANGUAGE (excluding the Flash Gordon Soundtrack). From there on it all went downhill for me.

Sorry but Dreamer's Ball & Jealousy straight up suck. You might like music that lulls you to sleep but not I...

I like all styles of music....I'm not a closed mind rock fan......If you don't like those songs that's fine, but you're missing out on some great vocals and guitar playing.  I guess you don't like the album a day at the races.....since most of that album is ballads.  go listen to some boring straight foward rock band like ACDC or motley crew.....this site is for people who enjoy real music.

I liked Jazz.... and from the looks of this forum I may be the only one. Sure there are songs that could be better (More of That Jazz and Dead on Time for example) but over all I think it's a strong album. And also I liked the ending montage of all the songs at the end of More That Jazz! I thought it was the best part of the whole song!

Jazz has wierd track list and it has various music styles, because that is the definition of Jazz as a word = crazy, wierd.

They played different quality songs under  Queen rock sound.

They used psychedelic cycles in front cover, the cycles referred to wierd and to grooves of  vinyl records  (Very clever idea).

The production is good, looses very much on cd, but gains much in LPs and Greatest hits DVD (FBG and BR sound great in 5.1.). Also copare the album production with other artists -albums of the same year, Queen undo them.

More Of that Jazz closes very clever the album, the mix of Jazz songs in the middle create a meaning in the song.

So the Jazz is more thatn meets the eye. It is a Diamond!

and they liked it, as experimental album they knew that, it could have been  little better...

In the end  audience love it. Big sales, many singles and different around the world and... always asking for songs to played live. Don't mention DSMN huge success over the last decade.
