I knew that Tom couldn't resist to say SOMETHING about The Works album :)

Don't Try Suicide is worst than this one, IMHO.

Mr Bad Guy it`s an outstanding album!
I think Freddie was saving his best songs for his solo release, and in my opinion that`s why the "Works" sucks big time!

Take care

I actually love it, both for the rhythm and the lyrics. I like the verses much better than the chorus. And it's a great performance by Freddie. I love his 80s voice and here he sounds at his best.

Would have been a great single, probably better than 'Hard Life' (sorry, it is a great song and all, but probably a bit too personal; nevermind that it went on to No. 6 in the UK!), but needed a bit of trimming. That extended "just believe, just keep passing the open windows" outro was way too long.

Of course, it beats the crap out of 'Man on The Prowl', 'Tear It Up', and the album version of 'Break Free' any day.

I usually love everything you say Serry but surely you can't hate Don't try suicide. How could anyone hate that song, it's like a sequel to the bicycle race. I imagine if Mack wasn't there it would've been filled with harmonies and overdubs. It's a clash of the stripped down Queen Mack was trying to bring in and the old Queen, I love the song.

On the song mentioned in this thread, I love it (trying to avoid the kptow acronym lol) The heavy riff before the verses is so nice. I love the tempo too but could I see how others could think it's a crap song? Yeah, easily but not so from Don't Try Suicide.

The works is their worst album by far because it was just bland and mediocre from what I've heard (meaning every song on the album lol) Hot Space isn't great but it still has some residue from the earlier Queen left over on it. People only say it's the worst because it was beginning of the "dark pweriod" the works was extremely mediocre and IMO is by far the lowest ranked Queen album, followed by AKOM, which was a lil less mediocre. Ironically the only two Queen albums I don't own. I listen to all vinyl anyway but it says something when I don't shell out the 3 or 4 bucks it'll take to get second hand copies of those albums...it says I'm a lazy bum lol

Tied with Don't Try Suicide and Flash as the worst recordings Queen ever made in my opinion.

Mack was the worst thing that happened to Queen- I hate his production with that awful drum sound that sounds dated now. Don't Try Suicide is very poor; terrible finger clicks, horrid fat basslines and Freddie trying to be Elvis yet again on The Game- and then the segue into the you need help bit is really clumsy. I love Bicycle Race- DTS doesn't deserve to polish it's handlebar! Mind you I can't stand The Game.

What??!! Don't try suicide owns. It's fucking awsome!! Why don't you like it??

Keep passing... is okay, don't listen to it very much, it's one of those I always skip. But it's better than Man on the prowl (the only Queensong I can't stand)
Machines I like.

YOU CALL YOUR SELF QUEEN FANS AT LEAST YOU SHOULD LIKE MOST OF ALL THE ALBUMS TO BE A QUEEN FAN. AND THE WORLS ALBUMS GAVE US SUCH GREAT SONGS AS I WANT TO BREAK FREE AND IS THIS THE WORLD WE CREATED AND HAMMER TO FALL. I BET ANY OF YOU HAD THE OPPUTUNITY TO MEET ONE OF THE BAND MEMBERS WOULD SAY THAT THEY ALL WERE GREAT ALBUMS. COME ON PEOPLE LETS BE POSITIVE. THERE IS TO MUCH HATE IN THE WORLD.

I happen to like the song, not a lot, but I can certainly think of a few that I really don't like (i.e. Loser in the End), but I'd still take the worst Queen songs over almost everybody else's "Best".

Easily the worst post I've ever read. "Too much hate in the world"????? Bit of a drama queen, eh?

KPTOW used to be one of my least favourites, but I kinda like it now.
Especially that piano demo.

Alright I think I managed to figure out most of this word vomit...

Firstly, there's a difference between being a fan and being a psychotic fanatic. Guess which one you fall under.

Secondly, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. Some people prefer the 70's stuff over the 80's stuff. Some Queen tracks are weaker than others (Don't Try Suicide, IMHO). Oh well, life goes on. And no, I would not lie to Brian and Roger and say I liked every single thing Queen (not Queen+) has ever done.

Thirdly, You, nor anyone, has any authority or say-so in who is a "real" Queen fan. I personally think a Queen fan should be defined as someone who can honestly respect the band as musicians and genuinely enjoy their music. The best thing is that no Queen album sounds the same. And if someone doesn't like Hot Space or The Works or Queen II, then so be it. It's all in what that person is into. Don't go stomping in here ready to tear ass just because somebody is trying to be honest about their musical tastes.

Getting back on topic, I really like KPTOW a lot. It's very inspiring for me. And I think some find it sounding "unfinished" because it was originally a Freddie solo project that he hoped would be included in the film Hotel New Hampshire (where the title comes from). I think this song wouldn't have fit the structure of the Mr Bad Guy album at all. I don't doubt that if the song was put in the vault, it'd make a lovely rarity to have.

I have seen the light. Suddenly my hatred for the tripe that are 'Body Language', 'Staying Power', 'Coming Soon', 'Fun It', 'Mustapha', 'More Of That Jazz', 'Flash', 'Tear It Up', 'Man On The Prowl', 'Don't Lose Your Head', 'Party', 'My Baby Does Me', and 'Delilah' have melted away. You are the power. May God be with you. Please touch me and share your wisdom.

I BELIEVE!!!!!!!!!
