I tend not to get ******'d off, whatever that means, about anyone's opinions of music.

Wow, 9 years old? I did not know that. They get younger and younger every day. At this rate, my children are going to be born wearing a Queen t-shirt. Good thing my girlfriend's a Queen fan...

I am totally sick of people saying that Hot Space sucks, that it's a failure, that it's a BAD album... I'm just soooo sick and tired to hear them. They have no idea of what they're talking about. I can undertand people saying that HS ain't their favorite album since its SO different from the others - that's fine. It ain't everyone who can get used to that funky-dance-disco musical style. But I can't stand people saying: "This album sucks and that's it".

But well... "F*ck them, darling, if they just don't get it"

It has grown on me a bit, but I still think it's their weakest album. After all, it was an experiment where Queen tried not to be Queen.

Hey Lester, just so you know....

My 2 year old girl walks around saying "Brian May loves me", and she constantly begs me for a rian May t-shirt :))))

And to be on topic, I think Hot Space is one of the weakest Queen albums, but not entirely without merit. :)

it is very weak - as queen albums go - remember Flash gordon was a soundtrack - Hot Space is far and away the weakest

i'd be very interested to know from the person who started the thread - what do you think is the weakest queen album?

also - if Hot Space had been made by any other band, i would not have bought it. To this day i only have it on vinyl - as i bought it on release day - and have regretted it ever since

One of the great things about Queen is their music has so many different styles. I love variety, and to me life is boring without it. That is why I love Queen, and I don't hate Hot Space either. It's a band doing what they do best - creating diversity.


Absolutely right!

And sometimes it seems as we can't critisize WWRY at all but can blame Hot Space all the time. For me Hot Space is much better than any musicals, Q+PR reunions etc!

I think hot space is not so weak that everyone always says, but it´s certainly not one of my top queen albums!! Maybe people not like it cause of the different stile, the songs are not that weak, Back Chat and Staying Power are really good!! Ok, calling all girls, cool cat and some other disco songs on the album are not that good. But Put out the fire, Life is real and Las palabras de amor sounds more like the usual queen, and they are all good songs!!! Theres still 2 things you should remember:
- The songs sound completely different and much better live!!
- Under Pressure ROCKS!!!

So after all I would say it´s a bit underrated by the fans...

You are so right!!!!! Hot Space is an outstanding album!!!!! There are some (many) people out there unable to recognise it!

Please, buy them a musical taste!!

Hot Space sounds great!!!!!!!

Not really because it does suck. They took a chance, did something bold, but it failed. Most bands could never recover from back to back flops like Flash Gordon and Hot Space.

i agree with most of what you said
but Flash Gordon (OST) was not a real queen album
- they weren't songs - they were musical accompanyment to the film
and even at that it still made the top10 in the album charts and was in there for 15 weeks

but HS - as oyu said - really did suck - bigtime!

I actually prefer Hot Space to one of the big fan favorites... I won't say what one though.

To reply to Brenski (I don't know how to quote on this site): I agree Flash wasn't a real Queen album, but it was released as such. I was thinking about it the other day and how before the days of the internet, radio was really the only way to be exposed to new material. Just imagine how disappointed you'd be if you excitedly bought the new Queen album only to find there was really only 2 "songs" on it. It was totally misleading to the fans to make that album an offical release and they were lucky that true Queen fans are so loyal. Those 2 albums could have killed them and in one major market (North America) it did until Wayne's World came along.

Yeah. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion but I don't think they should try to press them on others.

two things to note here:-
1. the cover of Flash Gordon clearly says

FLASH GORDON - original soundtrack music by queen
it doesn't say QUEEN - FLASH GORDON
look at the other album covers BAND NAME = BIG LETTERS or top of cover - title = underneath or smaller lettering
FLASH is the opposite - TITLE in big letters - queen in litlle letters

2. - and i know there are exceptions - but generally speaking - the vast majority of queen fans would not put HS in their top 3

and as for NON_QUEEN fans - how many are even aware of HS - let alone even like it?

I like Hot Space. Its something differnet. I'm not too keen on Body Language but i like all the other tracks. It's a pretty cool album.


but that isn't what i just said

i said how many would put it in their top 3 queen albums? - not many
if you put Hs above queenII, queen, sha, anato, adatr, notw then you've obviously heard something that the vast majority of queen fans haven't - and most of the owrld ignored - for that matter

any comments yet on the titling of the FLASH cover?
