What do we think of Jazz?
I just bought it today.
I'm listening to Mustapha right now.

I think it's one of their least interesting records.
The only song I really like is "Don't stop me now", the rest sounds very mediocre to me, to Queen standards that is.

I like the tracks a lot, but it's not really an album to me. It sounds more like a bunch of tracks thrown together.

as an album it lacks a natural flow, but as a collection of songs there's some good ones in there, with most of it being likeable stuff. DSMN is one of Freddie's finest moments - a distant cousin (apols to last poster) - of I Was Born To Love YOU.
i'm sure i saw a quote (around the time of release)that they wanted to get an album of three minute pop songs out

strange connection between Fun It and AOBTD - because at that point in time John and Roger's writing couldn't have been more different, yet there are clear similarities in both songs...

I actually like Jazz. I think it's an enjoyable album, although it usually isn't recognized that often. Dead On Time, Jealousy, Mustapha, Dreamer's Ball are all great, but I could do without Fun It.

This is one of my favourite Queen-albums, I like it a lot! All different styles of music are in it, beautiful. Jealousy is one of Freddie's best!
I don't know, all songs are great! It's a great and very underrated Queen-album!

Jazz is one of my faves; I love the songs (except more of that Jazz), but I do have to agree that it doesn't have much of a flow to it.

The only songs I don't like are Dead On Time and More of That Jazz. I take the Rolling Stone critics with a grain of salt, American, after all.

I like Jazz album. I could live without 'Fun It' and I'm another one, who doesn't like Roger's sound of drums (too 'thin' and electronical-like), but that's all. It's rock album full of shorter songs, no more, no less. Maybe they tried to answer start of punk era in that time. It's really not bad LP and that RollingStone Jazz review seems to me almost unbelievable.

Well, Rolling Stone has never been exactly positive about Queen, except for Queen I.
