Queen - News of the World




Freddie Mercury indulges his cabaret fantasies with the supper club cha-cha of the Spanish guitar-laced "Who Needs You." Brian May sings the mournful, folkish piano ballad "All Dead, All Dead." Things get downright Cole Porter-ish on the jazzy torch song "My Melancholy Blues." Once again, Queen prove themselves to be capable of much more than the arena rock many take to be their stock in trade.

Queen Are The Champions!

Reviewer: Keith B.
There's a point where bands really come into their own and for me, this LP and it's predecessor, A Day At The Races, are key examples of Queen hitting their stride. The songwriting is more mature, the performance more raw as in 'Sleeping On The Sidewalk' and 'It's Late' while still offering up the beautiful vocal harmony that is undeniably "Queen"! 'All Dead, All Dead' proves a haunting but pretty piece while 'Sheer Heart Attack' shows that those on the punk rock scene had no business calling bands like Queen and their contemporaries dinosaurs. The clarity of this remaster (I'm assuming it is such) is assured and strikes the right balance: bass and drums have their solid, earthy punch. The vocals, piano and guitars are clear and pronounced. All in all a well mixed, warm sounding reproduction of a wonderful LP. I still have my original copy and this current version certainly does it justice. Oh, and of course, those radio staples you may have heard once or twice kick off the record...
