  • I could be totally off-base here, but after Queen’s disappointing Hot Space, I wouldn’t be suprised to hear if outside influences (specifically the suit-wearing ones) made a “suggestion” or two concerning the direction of the band’s follow-up album, The Works. There’s alot of “Queen-like” songs (whatever that means) on here, but they feel too calculated & by-the-numbers IMO…derivative of themselves, if that makes sense.

    While it’s better than Hot Space, you get the feeling that Queen “settled” with The Works instead of going with their gut. It’s still a decent album, and the extra track “I Go Crazy” is their heaviest rocker since “Sheer Heart Attack” (live version) or “Stone Cold Crazy”…almost worth the price of the album for that song alone.
