Queen 7th studio album released 10 November 1978.
After the success of News Of World Album Queen we’re finally reaping the financial rewards.
Freddie Mercury had been to singing coach Benvenuto Finelli known as ‘the prince of high F’ who taught Bel Canto style ‘beautiful singing’ which gives a brighter lighter tone.
Queen were now competing with new wave bands like Blondie Elvis Costello and The Stranglers
The album production for me lacked sparkle but a great album none the less.
Mustapha start the album off with a great Arabic vocal by Freddie
Fat Bottomed Girls was a great tune by Brian May
Jealousy is a light piano song by Freddie
Bicycle Race was double A Side with Bicycle Race And was a top ten hit
If You Can’t Beat Them, Let Me entertain You and Dead On Time were the real rockers of the album.
In Only Seven Days was a John Deacon song which was a nice tune.
dreamers Ball which was also on Live Killers is a favourite among Queen fans written by Brian May
Fun It had a disco vibe and a prediscessor to Another One Bites The Dust
Dont Stop Me Now was the biggest hit and a firm favourite
Ending with More Of That Jazz
