It's an ok "sound/computer/synth" album, but not a good Queen album.
Robert Goshop
Roger's two songs are great on this album and this is the first one and one of his best.
Juz Man
I am an all time BIG Queen fan, This is not as bad as people say it is.

It's quite funny, this album took me by surprise. I got this album and "The Works" a week ago to add to my collection. I had heard a lot of negative stuff about this album, but my ears proved me wrong. I loved it! (Not my favorite Queen CD by any means, just good). "Staying Power" is totally cool and catchy, very funky, as is "Dancer," which features some vintage Brian May guitar work. These are two of my favorites off the album. "Back Chat" is also quite good, the chord progression is kinda reminicent of "House of the Rising Sun." "Body Language," could be the worst song on the album, not necessarily bad, but not as good as the others. "Action This Day" is a great, upbeat song with a nice beat. "Put Out The Fire" is vintage Brian May. Another great song on the album is the amazing tribute to my musical idol, John Lennon, "Life Is Real." It's a very Lennon-esque tune, which makes it all the more a better tribute. "Calling All Girls" sends a nice positive message, "Las Palabras de Amor" is a great ballad. Then Freddie Mercury delivers an amazing vocal performance with the reggae "Cool Cat." Then comes the big finish, the classic off this album, "Under Pressure" with David Bowie dueting with Freddie.
So now, take my advice, go and give this album another listen. This album is not for new Queen fans, do not make this your first album. However, it is perfect for all the staunch Queen fans out there, like myself. After all, how bad can it be, it's Queen, all the elements that make Queen Queen are all in there. So please, diehard fans, go and give this album another listen, you will not be disappointed.

I didn't care for it when I first picked it up several years ago. But I've come to appreciate it as a unique part of Queen's catalogue and a fun album of cool funk & dance with signature Queen flavors. "Cool Cat" puts me in a great mood and is probably my favorite track, other than the amazing duet with Bowie, "Under Pressure." Other highlights are the cheesy but enjoyable "Back Chat" "Put Out The Fire," and the beautiful "Las Palabras de Amor." Regardless of what critics might say, this is hardly the low point of Queen's career. It's not The Game Part 2 or Night At The Opera Part 2, because that's not what Queen set out to do. It's just a good 80s dance/pop record.

Unlike most people, I don't think this was Queen's poorest effort at music. They, like other musicians, were influenced by the culture and other music of the time. Those of you who don't like disco will not like this album, for a good portion of the songs are disco, e.g. "Staying Power," "Cool Cat," "Dancer," and so on. This album is Queen work at its finest, even for the 1980s. For anyone who has enjoyed other albums, this album is definitely one to try (unless you don't like disco...then stay away).

Hot Space is usually criticised by Queen fans of being too 'pop' and electronic. This is true to a large extent, but the cheesy sounds should not stop you listening to a few of the gems this album contains. Everyone knows 'Under Pressure', but other notable tracks include 'Las Palabras De Amor' (a great ballad), 'Put Out The Fire', and 'Calling All Girls', which are rocky little numbers. I would recommend this album to Queen fans who are prepared to give it a try - you shouldn't regret buying it if you can cope with the few cheesy songs.

Queen's eleventh album (twelfth overall) entitled Hot Space was released in May of 1982.
After the success of the 1980 chart-topper The Game, Queen took some time following their 1980/81 tour to record a new album.
Lead singer Freddie Mercury, bass player John Deacon, guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor along with Game co-producer and engineer Mack went into the studio at the end of 1981 and recorded The Game's proper follow-up not counting the Flash Gordon soundtrack and Greatest Hits album.
When fans first put on Hot Space, they were expecting a typical Queen album but a good portion (the first side of the original vinyl and cassette issues at least) was dance music pure and simple.
The opening track "Staying Power" is a funky Mercury composition which may be seen as bad stale disco as disco was two years out of date by then but when performed live, the song was transformed into a rocker. Next is Brian's rocker "Dancer" which combined synth and regular drums and a synth-bass skin to Foreigner's Juke Box Hero and a killer May riff and superb May solos. Next was John's funk number "Back Chat" which is my favorite song on the album's first half and would be a concert staple which was transformed into a rocker live. Next was the Mercury composition "Body Language" which was the album's biggest hit in the US hitting #11 and had its video banned from MTV for being too risque (I think it was a great clip and was tame compared to lousy, filth-drenched videos that hacks like Madonna, Britney, Christina, Beyonce, The Pussycat Dolls and Rihanna and such made). Roger's New Wave sounding rocker "Action This Day" ended the first half and was a great song but would be better live.
