5.0 su 5 stelle Queen go back to basics on this classic album! 9 novembre 2007
Di Terrence J. Reardon - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD Acquisto verificato
Queen's twelfth album The Works was released in March of 1984.
The band were frustrated after the poor response to Hot Space and was the album that was the start of the unnecessary downfall Queen had.
With The Works, Queen made some changes. First, they switched record labels from Elektra to Capitol/EMI to all countries outside Europe where they were already with EMI. Second, the band decided to go back to their classic sound whilst moving forward. Third, Queen and co-producer Mack decided to record the album mainly in the US. Would these changes improve or hurt Queen, read on!
The Works kicks off with drummer Roger Taylor's ode to MTV called "Radio Ga Ga". The song is about how much the singer misses listening to the radio, and how MTV has replaced the radio and interesting fact, Roger's son Oscar came up with the title after he heard some New Wave act and replied "Radio Ca Ca" (they didn't change the lyric). That track did well hitting #16 in the US but was also the band's downfall in the US as their hard rock fans were irate that "Ga Ga" was the first single. We then rock out next with Brian's "Tear It Up". This song rock, had it been released as the US' first single, I believe The Works would have done well Stateside. Next is classic Freddie on the ballad "It's A Hard Life". This song is a masterpiece and its video was classic. We end The Works' first side with Freddie's "Man On The Prowl". It is somewhat seen as a Crazy Little Thing Called Love re-make with different lyrics but I think both songs rock.
The album's second half starts with the Brian/Roger collaborated techno-rocker "Machines (or Back to Humans)". The track combined techno with hard rock and the synth drums fight with the acoustic drums whilst electric guitar and bass guitar fight the synthesizers. There are even Roger's vocals sung through a vocoder, to simulate the voice of a robot akin to Mr Roboto from Styx. Next is the song, which its video damaged Queen's credibility in the US for years which is the John Deacon composition "I Want To Break Free". This track is a great song which had a comedic video of the band dressing in drag which got banned in the US and destroyed Queen but is a great song. MTV could show Madonna lip-locking with Britney and Christina (both of whom are young enough to be her kids) yet Queen got banned for jokingly dressing in drag, grow up losers! The song itself was an anthem about overcoming oppression. The album version is shorter but the full version appears at the end of the album as a bonus track. Next is "Keep Passing The Open Windows", a Freddie track that is another winner. We follow with the classic hard rocker "Hammer To Fall", this Brian penned track will rock you but unfortunately went nowhere in the US when released which is a shame(Capitol under-promoted Queeen IMHO). We close the album with the classic Brian and Freddie collaboration "Is This The World We Created?". This beautiful anthem of injustice closes the album in a sweet way.
The Works initially when relased hit #24 in 1984 in the US and went Gold but the US abandoned the band for New Wave trash like Culture Club and Duran Duran!
In 1991, Hollywood Records re-released The Works with THREE bonus tracks which were Brian's hard rocker "I Go Crazy" which rocks and 12" mixes of Radio Ga Ga and the previously aforementioned I Want to Break Free!

4.0 su 5 stelle Queen's best eighties album. 1 agosto 2003
Di Thomas K. Dye - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD Acquisto verificato
Track by track:
Radio Ga Ga - A big hit for Queen in the eighties, eminently hummable, if a bit overlong. Probably the first *superior* Roger Taylor song in Queen's whole catalog.
Tear It Up - Not one of Brian May's better rockers, but still kind of catchy in a mindless sort of way.
It's a Hard Life - Freddie's opera buffa for the album, and quite good, especially the middle section and the solo.
Man on the Prowl - A silly fifties-esque number with Freddie doing his Roy Orbison impression at times. Nice piano solo at the end, though.
Machines (or Back to Humans) - Techno heavy metal, with some dated lyrics about mechanization. The theme of the song does hold up, however.
I Want to Break Free - A nice John Deacon pop ditty; light and nothing special, yet catchy.
Keep Passing the Open Windows - an epic number by Freddie with some great lyrics, marvelous chord changes and grand guitar work by Brian May.
Hammer to Fall - One of the best hard rock songs by Queen since the early seventies. Great lyrics, great theme. Brian May's "message" songs are the best.
Is This the World We Created? - a very sad, sensitive acoustic number. In a decade when acoustic instruments were shunned, this was actually a brave move on Queen's part.
I Go Crazy - (Bonus for the CD) - Different in production than the rest of the album, this is a typical "My girl left me for another rock and roll star" rocker. Nothing special but not horrible either.
All in all, I think it's one of Queen's standout albums and one of the few that I can play over and over again.

5.0 su 5 stelle QUEEN WORKS WELL! 18 ottobre 2009
Di Ingram David Michael - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Audio CD Acquisto verificato
Listening to this album 25 years later, it has not dated at all, and is still as exciting to listen to as it was when it was first released.
As was the case during this period, every track is a gem. What set Queen apart from other bands,apart from the unique vocal pyrotechnics of Freddie Mercury, was the fact that they were all individually good songwriters, which meant that different styles abounded and there was no "sameness" that often occurs when all tracks are written by the same person.
Radio Ga Ga is a gem by Roger Taylor
I want to break free is a gem by John Deacon
Is this the world we created is a gem by Brian May and Freddie Mercury

An album full of powerful playing, wonderful harmonies and excitement from beginning to end
