I do, I think the songs on the album are really cool :) Why does everyone dislike it so much?

I like it, not all of it, for example i do not like Backchat. Although the guitar solo is good. i think the songs are better live.

I don think body language is as bad as everyone makes out.

But then again there are songs(A SONG) i dont like on the Miracle-My baby does me.

but i think that other than MBDM it is a great album.

I like that album much more than 'Works' or 'Magic'. 'Put Out The Fire' is superb, and I'm rather fond of 'Action' as well.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

I think 'Works' and 'Magic' have much better songs than 'Hot Space' but are much worse recordings in average. 'Hammer To Fall' is an extraordinary song, but the recording is pants.

I think Hot Space has a catchy beat to it and Queen were experimenting with a new sound, I think it worked just as well as their other albums

I've ALWAYS liked a lot and much supported this album. All Queen albums are very different and so is Hot Space. Why then dismissed by many fans. It is a musical document of Queen's diverse song-writing abilty and style, that should be evaluated!The quality is there!

It IS kitsch and has that 80s hallmark and Andy Warhall feel to it.I love the sleeve.

I agree,though, that the songs played live are much better:this gives the album two faces; rock and funky.It could have been a live album.
Freddie has a strong vocal range on all the tracks.

It has some strong great tracks: 5,6,7,8,9 and Freddie's wonderful COOL CAT excels the whole album!

OOOH! OOOH! ME! ME! I LOVE Hot Space! Great album. Some of my favorite Queen songs are on it like Back Chat, Under Pressure and Calling All Girls.

I like four of the songs on that album, but I really like those four (Put Out the Fire, Life is Real, Las Palabras, Under Pressure). The rest of the album ranges from "eh" to "this sucks" for me--I just don't like the disco/funk beat.

The album as a whole is still better than AKOM, which was basically a soundtrack album full of forgettable takes.

There's no bassline on SP, it's synthetizers.

I like Hot Space, because it's one of the few Queen albums on which I don't fast forwards songs. The Game and A Kind of Magic have stronger songs, but have also shitty ones like Don't try suicide, Coming Soon, Don't lose your head, Kurgan's theme and Man On The Prowl from The Works. I love Hot Space, it's one of my favorite.

Queen's worst albums are Flash Gordon and Jazz.

man on the prowl is from the works.

and kurgans theme, or gimme the prize, is fantastic, one of magics best songs. but then theres one vision, friends will be friends, a kind of magic, princes of the universe, one year of love. i dont know why people slate it so much.
