Queen a British rock band formed in London in 1970. Their classic line-up was Freddie Mercury (lead vocals, piano), Brian May (guitar, vocals), Roger Taylor (drums, vocals) and John Deacon (bass). Their earliest works influenced by progressive rock, hard rock and heavy metal; but the band gradually ventured into more conventional and radio-friendly works by incorporating further styles, such as arena rock and pop rock.

 

Queen The Game

The Game is the eighth studio album by the British rock band Queen. Released on 30 June 1980 by EMI Records in the UK and by Elektra Records in the US. The Game features a different sound from its predecessor, Jazz (1978). The Game was the first Queen autographs album to use a synthesizer (an Oberheim OB-X).

Additionally, a critical and commercial success, The Game became the only Queen album to reach No. 1 in the US, and became their best-selling studio album in the US, with four million copies sold to date, tying with the sales for News of the World. Notable songs on the album include the bass-driven “Another One Bites the Dust” and the rockabilly “Crazy Little Thing Called Love”, both of which reached No. 1 in the US. Reissued in May 2003 on DVD-Audio with Dolby 5.1 surround sound and DTS 5.1. The 5.1 mix of “Coming Soon” features an alternate backing track; as the final master tapes could not be found when mixing the album to 5.1.

Record Mirror wrote in a contemporary review; “After Zeppelin and even before the Scorpions, Queen are the most exciting band I’ve ever seen or heard. And I’m sure all you lovers of quality music will agree.” Rolling Stone felt that it was “nice to hear a Queen signed memorabilia album with songs, not ‘anthems’,” but opined that “these guys know how this music should sound and feel, but they can’t bend enough to get with it.” The Washington Post gave a scathing review, writing: “After five years of unchallenging, dismal albums, this was supposed to be Queen’s comeback.
