Reissue from the legendary theatrical British rockers Queen featuring the high-fidelity SHM-SACD format (fully compatible with standard SACD player, but it does not play on standard CD players) and 24bit/96kHz digital remastering by Bob Ludwig. Part of a three-album Queen SHM-SACD reissue series featuring the albums Hot Space, The Works, and A Kind Of Magic.

"Because Queen took the better part of 1981 off to work on the follow-up to their big 1980 hit The Game, fans were confident that the band's next release would follow in their winning tradition of classic albums. This would not be the case. Unlike its predecessor, Hot Space was a less consistent effort. Aalthough the single 'Body Language' nearly cracked the U.S. Top Ten, the rest of the dance material was less memorable — 'Back Chat,' 'Staying Power,' 'Action This Day,' and so on — however, the album was not a total washout. The more rock-oriented second side did contain some great tracks, such as "Put Out the Fire," "Calling All Girls," "Las Palabras de Amor," and the David Bowie collaboration "Under Pressure." But it was not enough to save Hot Space from a cruel critical and commercial fate, as its ensuing world tour marked the last time Queen would perform in the U.S." — All Music Guide
