Product Description

Product Description

We Will Rock You and Get Down, Make Love highlight this 1977 release.

Amazon.ca

When it was released in 1977, News of the World seemed at loggerheads with a music world that had moved beyond Queen's operatic pomprock and on to punk. In fact, the album was more in step with the punk scene than the output of most superstar acts of the time, as it contains Roger Taylor's furious "Sheer Heart Attack" and Freddie Mercury's lean, brutal "Get Down, Make Love." Of course, News is famous for its opening medley, "We Will Rock You/We Are the Champions." Attend any sports event in the Western world, and you'll hear the former. If it's a championship match and the home team wins, you'll hear the latter. That's a tribute to the staying power of the music, but News of the World offers proof that, even as Queen maintained their position as rock & roll royalty, they continued to evolve and react to the times. --Daniel Durchholz

Format: Audio CD
I bought this album in grade school (I think for the cover as much as the hit singles) and all I really knew about Queen back then was they had a couple of cool video's (called promos back then). "We Will Rock You" and "We Are The Champions" were all over the radio and even though those songs are great they are not the reason I loved the album. It was tracks like "Spread Your Wings" or the killer "Get Down Make Love" that made me love this LP. I have had each version of this that has come out since the LP back in the 70's and even though I might not listen to the CD for years every time the new one comes out I buy it. And every time I am blown away at how great it is. Queen put out a lot of great music but I feel until this album they never had a classic LP (I know most people will say "A Night At The Opera" but the music is all over the place on that LP and I don't like every track). For the average fan a 2 CD best of would do. But if you really want to see what Freddy, Brian, Roger and John were all about check this CD out.

I rate this album 4.5 but there are no half stars. This is a more stripped down (by Queen standard) and basic album but it is very diverse and it rocks! It flows a little better if a few songs are re-arranged:

1) We Will Rock You
2) We Are the Champions
3) All Dead All Dead
4) Spread Your Wings
5) Fight From the Inside
6) Sheer Heart Attack

7) Get Down Make Love
8) Who Needs You
9) Sleeping On The Sidewalk
10) It's Late
11) My Melancholy Blues

There! I like how 'Sheer Heart Attack' ends abruptly to end side 1 (or just before 'Get Down Make Love'). Either way it sounds better there. It follows 'Fight From the Inside' pretty well too. 'All Dead All Dead' & 'Spread Your Wings' sound smoother and more natural following 'Rock You & 'Champions' especially because they have piano in them. A couple of blues based rockers 'Sleeping On the Sidewalk' & 'It's Late' go well together on side 2 as well. This album doesn't quite have the knockout energy of other Queen albums but it's a simpler, more refined rock statement that is no less interesting. There are beautiful moments in the rock and roll and 'Get Down Make Love' is about as down and dirty as Queen gets. Great album!

A lot of Queen fans gave up on Queen when then turned (so called) commercial with News of the world in 1977. Queen have fans who are not ready to listen albums released after 'A day at the races'. However I found News of the World a very important and one of the best in their career.
It does matter that it had one of rare double A sides in form of We will Rock You and We are the Champions, but what matters more is they are ability to experiment & explore different forms and moods of music all at the same album. Let's go track by track.
We Will Rock You - We all know it is one of the most heard stadium anthems. People who does not even know about a band named 'Queen' has heard this song a few 100 times. (Generally sung before the game). Belong to the category Stadium rock!!!
We Are The Champions - Same as above. (Generally sung after winning the game). Belong to the category Stadium rock!!!
Sheer Heart Attack - A mix of Punk & hard rock. I like that eletronic sounding percussion. This song rocks the hell out.

All Dead, All Dead - A pop sounding ballad kind of thing! A bit difficult to categorize, but it is a great song. Great vocals.

Spread Your Wings - Power ballad. Good guitar solo at the end and great vocals as usual.

Fight From The Inside - Punk sonding hard rock again. Good use of echo with Freddie's vocal.

Get Down, Make Love - Only week song according the me in this album. Lyrics is Dirrtier than Christina. Tune is a little boring.

Sleeping On The Sidewalk - Vocals by Bryan. 50's-60's rock n' roll. Simple & sweet structure.

Who Needs You - Second best song in the album (written by John). A fun song with a lot of acoustic guitar. Very different pop sounding song by this great group.

It pains me to say that this is a mediocre effort by Queen, that they seemed to shove between A Day At The Races and Jazz (both underrated albums). On this 1977 release, you get the overplayed We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions as the album's beginning. Later on comes a slew of awful awful AWFUL songs: Sheer Heart Attack (this one might be good if covered by The Ramones... it's not Queen), All Dead All Dead (this one gives me headaches), Spread Your Wings (ZzZzZzZ), and Fight From The Inside (Roger's songs remind you of Montrose, but not as good.) Then there's Get Down, Make Love (not bad, but listen to the version on Live Killers), Sleeping On The Sidewalk (blah.), Who Needs You (who needs that song?). Ah, but this album does have 2 songs that save it. It's Late and My Melancholy Blues are both INCREDIBLE! And don't let my review fool you. I love Queen. And this music is not bad, it's just not up to standard. This album was self-produced and has sort of a basement sound to it. (Think Metallica - St. Anger.) Overall, not a bad album, but definitely not a Queen album I'd recommend. Get Sheer Heart Attack, A Night At The Opera, or Jazz instead. You'll thank yourself for it.
