By far Queens barest and simplest output, 'The Game' is also one of Queens' strongest albums released.
Queen started the new decade (1980) with a bang, but not in a way you would expect from the extravagance and bombastic that was 'Queen'. They put out material that was very laid back with basic arraingments, had great melodies, and easily sing-a-longable lyrics to accompany..
Start to finish, the album flows extremely well. The production side of the album is very strong, featuring all instruments in each song to it's full glory. In my opinion, this is the reason the album triumphs so much as a 'coherent' product. Throughout there are 3 different styles/genres of music going on all at once. It has this rockabily 50's sound, 80's New Wave, and a hint of Queens earlier triumphs (Especially in the track 'save me').
Each track features Queen sounding more as a 'unit' than on any other album. You have the basic drums, bass, guitar, and piano parts all shining on their own, each putting in their own piece of the puzzle. Of course you have an occasional synth to add to the ambience, plus an occasional multi tracked guitar solo.. BUT the gist of the album is more of your 'stripped' version of Queen. In a way, this album is the closest Queen would ever come to be considered an 'unplugged' recording. Of course what Queen would refer to unplugged would be using 24 tracks instead of 48..
This is a must have album for any music enthusiast. It is a very popular album that has definately aged well, and some of it's sound has reemerged in the new-wave/punk sound (Rock It/Prime Jive). It also helps to contain 4 hit singles, two of which were #1's!
Overall, the album is fun, effortless, melodical, and eccentric at times which is what makes this album essential music. It influences me every time I listen to it.
Buy it, this is a must own album. You will love it.
All the best, -AndyMan-

After the great 70's, Queen started the 80's with a bang. At first long time queen fans were disapointed that they were changing their style with synths, but there was no reason to be disapointed because the game turned into a classic. The first side to the album is perfect, such classics as play the game, dragon attack, the hits another on bites the dust and crazy little thing called love. The second side is also good with roger talyors prime jive to brian mays beutiful ballad save me. The game is a good place for new fans to start, it's a mixture of classic rock to 80's pop.

Queen's first album of the 1980s entitled The Game was released in June of 1980. The album was a fresh album for the band as they had not recorded a studio album since 1978's uneven effort Jazz. First, they switched producers and engineers from Roy Thomas Baker and Geoff Workman to ELO engineer Mack. The album was recorded in Munich, Germany between the summer of 1979 and the spring of 1980. Frontman Freddie Mercury has three great song on this album starting with the opener Play the Game(a minor hit here in the US), the rockabilly sounding US #1 Crazy Little Thing Called Love(which came out months before the rest of the album) and the anti-suicide number Don't Try Suicide. Drummer Roger Taylor had the hard rocking Rock It(Prime Jive) in which he did lead vocal and the new waveish Coming Soon. Guitarist Brian May had the hard rocker Dragon Attack, the ballad Sail Away Sweet Sister in which he sang lead vocal and the closing ballad Save Me which is a great song. Bassist John Deacon contributed the mammoth #1 rock/disco hybrid hit Another One Bites the Dust (which was the reason for this album's huge success) and the rocker Need Your Loving Tonight. This album was Queen's only US chart-topper as it hit #1 and stayed for 5 weeks and sold 4 million in the US alone(tying News of the World's sales tally). This was Queen's last flawless album until 1989's The Miracle. Highly recommended!

While it's true that Eighties Queen is not half as good as the earlier one, I find this cd more entertaining than Jazz, which drags on a little too much and was the first Queen album to have filler on it.
The only song I don't like from The Game is Another One Bites The Dust, though live versions I may dig. While the bass riff is cool, the studio arrangement is cheesy, mainly the percussion. Coming Soon is not a great classic either, but ok nevertheless.
Play The Game, though the first Queen song ever to feature a synth, is a great and powerful song. Dragon Attack, though dismissed by some, kicks [butt], especially the bass riff and the guitar solo. Need Your Loving Tonight is an underrated Deacon composition, rockier by his standards. Little Thing Called Love is a stylistic departure by Queen but fine anyway.
Then it comes one of my fave tracks on the cd, Rock It, that kicks all the way through. Don't Try Suicide features a great bass riff and is a good song but not the best on the album. Sail Away Sweet Sister presents the seldom heard gentle May singing to the sister he never had. I already commented on Coming Soon so let's go to Save Me, the best ballad on the cd though slightly flawed by a guitar solo that is way too brief. Seems like they regretted including it a few seconds on it and ruthlessly cut it.
All in all, an enjoyable album by Queen that, in spite of featuring less worked arrangements than their Seventies releases bar Jazz, works as a whole minus Another One Bites The Dust.
