...why?

Yeah, dumb question, I know, but I actually got round to getting off my lazy ass and buying the album last weekend (among other things... like the giant dildo hidden in the bottom of my bag, :P) and I really can't see why everyone's so negative about it - it's bareable...

Anyway, why do you lot hate it so much? And yes, I know we've discussed this before...

You don't need him anymore with your new bought stuff, do ya?? :P

No kidd'n... I'm one of the few persons who likes Hot Space... It's a bit different from what we expect to be Queen, but I like the funky grooves.


I got to try al little more,

because I'm an asshole but I'm learning.

Back Chat is class. And live? One of the best.

It's a shame that Hot Space wasnt made to sound in the same musical vein as The Game. I personally think it would've sounded much better with the stripped down sound Mack had given them, you know - perhaps with less trumpets, and more guitar orchestration, and more of the crisp drum beats and less of that flat drum machine stuff etc etc

...I agree that sound they had on "The Game" was really crisp and minimal and unfortunately never repeated. However NOTW benefits from having a stripped down sound as well.

Hot Space - the quality of the songs was good but not outstanding. It's like Queen on a bad day still beat most bands hands-down.

I've never commented on Hot Space.

I LOVE this record!!! There are a few tracks that I can do without (Body Language, Life is Real) - but the rest of it is one of the best records/cds for driving...I've always loved the 'funk' - and I was actually glad when they put this record out. I love A1BtD, and this was a great follow up to that.

I listen to all kinds of music - it actually frightens some of my friends - I'll go from rockin the night away to dancing the night away - Queen to Disco without even missing a beat...Brazilian Jazz...anything except country or rap and I'm happy.

Hot Space is a very nice record! Of course it sounds different, but that's Queen!

I love Hot Space. Body Language and Cool Cat aren't that great, but the rest is great stuff.

I have said this many times on QZ, Hot Space may not be my favorite Queen album, but I love it anyhow.

How can you not like such timeless songs as Las Palabras De Amor, Life Is Real, and of course, Under Pressure? I think Calling All Girls is fun and catchy with a pre..Duran Duran type feel to it.

I just don't get why people still rag on it. Not every Queen album has to be a masterpiece of art, an ANATO..to have merit and still be a good record with good tunes.

Yeah, Back Chat and Body Language suck, but most albums by any artist are gonna have 1 or 2 clunkers on a whole album.

Overall, I like it and I wish people would stop acting like Queen had developed an aurel version of the plague when they did this.

Just cuz it was SO dramatically different from their hard rock sound that people and longtime fans had grown accustomed to, doesn't take away from the fact that fans and people should be openminded about this record as a decent record with decent music on its own.

Christ on a bike...most long term career music artists change, evolve, experiment with tons of diffrent sounds through the course of their careers.

I still applaud them for trying out some different styles of music..and alot of the songs are very good.

My personal favorite is STILL Las Palabras De Amor. It's stunning and the words are very meaningful. Beautiful orchestration, arrangment, Freddie's singing and Brian's writing deserve definite props!

I prefered the songs of Hot Space album on stage, they're better than in studio.
It's only my opinion, i hope not disturb anybody.

People who don't like "Hot Space" are close-minded teeny-headed individuals who aren't willing to enjoy music that's outside of the ordinary.

If they think Queen is JUST a rock band, they are horribly mistaken.
They are a rock/ragtime/jazz/blues/disco/dance/pop band.

Staying Power kicked ass LIVE
Dancer was my favorite on the first half
Back Chat rocked live
Body Language was cool
Action This Day was given a jolt live
Put Out the Fire was great live despite it missed the second solo and chorus.
Life is Real was my favorite on the second half
Calling All Girls rocked live
Las Palabras De Amor was good
Cool Cat was a great riff but the falsetto got on my nerves, it sounded like it could have been sung in an Issac Hayes sort of way
Under Pressure, without saying!
