Customer Reviews

Most Queen fans will enjoy this album.
Johnny Heering
Some less well recognized, but great songs on it (Dead on Time, Fun It) as well as some of the more well known (Fat Bottomed Girls, Bicycle Race).
Michael Carter
The album has only one bad song (more of that jazz) but the rest is great.
Mr. Mercury

At this point, Queen were on the verge of another makeover: this time toward a more funk/pop phase which was slightly hinted at here, but taken up even more on the next two albums following this one: _The Game_ and _Hot Space_ (excluding the Flash Gordon soundtrack.)
It seems that this album gets pretty mixed reviews from diehard Queen fans, and more casual ones. My opinion of the album? I tend to agree with both sides of the camp. I'm going to get to the negative stuff first, just to get it out of the way.
While I think it's a great album, I can't help feeling that some of it seems a bit lackluster, uninspired and forced for Queen's own typical high standards, particularly during the second half. First off, the album seems a bit uneven, mainly because the hard-hitting and upbeat numbers seem to play out consecutively throughout the first half, while the second half seems more subdued in dynamics and atmosphere. Listening to the transition from a (mostly) first half of upbeat numbers to a (mostly) second half of low-key numbers can be quite a tough pill to swallow for a listener. It probably would have been nicer if the track order was switched around and mixed up more, like they did on the majority of their earlier 70s albums. All of this gives the impression that Queen got a bit hasty and careless with the production of the album, as if they were on a quick deadline to release an album within a short period of time. The overall feel of the album comes across as a bit sloppily executed, when in fact Queen were one of THE bands/producers known for their precision, meticulousness and perfectionism.

Wow. Simply, wow. This album slams you from the very beginning of the first song, "Mustapha," and keeps beating you over the head mercilessly with Queen's absolutely masterful rocking. The entire album is one of their most cohesive, and highlights all the members' insane musical abilities, from Brian May's intense guitar work ("Dead On Time" is an excellent example) to Freddie Mercury's piercing vocals. This album is just good fun and good music. Queen's tongue-in-cheek sense of humor is rampant ("Let Me Entertain You" and "If You Can't Beat Them"), and this album is polished and sharp in its manic pace. This album is for the listener looking for an album to just let loose and rock out to. It's not a casual listening album, but it is guaranteed to entertain you, no pun intended! With the possibility of redundancy on my part, it's GREAT!

Queen released this album at the height of their 1970's popularity. This album followed years of bad reviews of the band from magazines like Rolling Stone and other music critics who never really seemed to understand that Queen did not want to be Led Zeppelin (who also received lack luster reviews from Rolling Stone). Queen wanted to be different and create their own unique sound and they were not afraid of any criticism they might receive for being so daring in their musical approach. With the release of Jazz, I truly believe that Queen was finally at the point where their success amongst their fan base spoke louder to them than any writer ever could. Which is why Queen felt that their bombastic, campy, stylized and over the top approach to music was something to be celebrated regardless of what any critic might think. It was Queen's way of saying "so you don't like the music that so many of our fans love? We'll then, here's some more".

This is quite evident on Jazz.

First off, they pissed off many critics because they decided to call the album Jazz even though it has nothing to do with jazz at all. Neither did the film "All That Jazz" (which was nominated for Best Picture) but that's another issue. They then start the "Jazz" album off with Freddie Mercury's brilliant vocals singing what amounts to some sort of Arabic prayer which suddenly erupts into a funny and strangely captivating song titled "Mustapha". It's silly, over the top, and something only Queen would consider.

Having had this on vinyl,cassette,and cd twice,I was slightly worried how this cd would compare,there was no need,out of all the Queen remasters,this is the best so far,just listen to Mustapha,it is just awesome,sounds like Freddie is in the room with you.
I will say,and this is a problem with all of the current Queen remasters,that the second discs are a missed oppertunity,they have more stuff in the vaults,I mean, a live track from Montreal? surely if you are the kind of fan to spend 17/18 bucks for the remaster,you would already have this concert? but I refuse to deduct it any stars simply because the Remaster is THAT good.
Enjoy and get more of that Jazz....
