and quite frankly, i am a little dissappointed.

other than the classics ( fat bottom girls, bycycle race, dreamers ball, dont stop me now,)

There are a few that are ok, like jealousy, and if you cant beat em, join em

I am jsut a little dissappointed. I dont know, maybe i just need to warm up to the record, and to the songs. Im like that

Dead on Time is amazing give it a while and you'll soon enjoy it. If not play More Of That Jazz wait till the middle and you can hear a condensed version of the album.

Not my favorite album, but certainly enough good stuff there :)

I've never cared much for the overall sound/production of the album. Something just doesn't sound right. Perhaps bringing Roy Baker back after having already blossomed without him wasn't the best idea. And I'd have ditched the first & last tracks, but otherwise it's alright.

Yes, production isn't the best point of this album : drums sounds too weak and guitars are squeezed !! What a crap sound for a 1978 release, considering that Pink Floyd's Wall was recorded the same year at the same studios (in France).

I like it, it's just a fun record.
Not the best, but I like almost all songs on it.

Okay, maybe Mustapha and More Of That Jazz aren't great.
But Jealousy, In Only Seven Days and Leaving Home Ain't Easy are wonderful!!

Give it about 12 years, then you'll like it.

That's what I had to do.

the only songs i dont like is probly fun it, and more of that jazz. The remake for bycycle race is atrocious. i like the album other than that.

Sure, Jazz doesn't sound much like the albums from Queen II to ADATR, which that gave the band their own original sound.

Jazz along with 'News Of The World' were perhaps Queen's intorduction to mainstream pop/rock, but they were still great albums.

Many people forget that 'Jazz' is perhaps the Queen album in which the band experiments with the most variety of genres and sounds while still keeping that original Queen sound, and that can't be a bad thing.

"Give it about 12 years, then you'll like it."

Wow that's like... 60% of my life so far... It took me... 3 months to love most of the songs there.

I'm glad you bought the album. It may sound nothing like the previous albums or any other albums you had before. Yet, if you listen really closely, it definitely has Queen sounds that never fades away. The merit of this album, and al other albums of Queen, is that the more you listen to the album, the more treasures you find.

Good luck!
