QUEEN NEWS OF THE WORLD reviews

Specialists/collaborators reviews

UMUR
"News of the World" is the 6th full-length studio album by UK rock act Queen. The album was released through EMI/Parlophone in Europe and Elektra/Hollywood in the US in October 1977.

"News of the World" generally features Queen in a more rock oriented and stripped down version compared to the more flamboyant/theatrical predecessors. Sure Queen had always had a rock oriented sound and some tracks on earlier releases are very direct and hard rocking, but on "News of the World" the band go for a less layered sound than usual. There are of course still the trademark extensive use of choirs and harmony vocals in the music but it´s like the lead vocals are given more room here.

The album opens with what is arguably two of the band´s greatest "classics" in the stripped down and quite original "We Will Rock You" and the anthemic "We Are the Champions" and from there until the end of the album we are treated to the band´s usual eclectic genre blend. Queen´s music simply defies catagorization and I guess "rock" is the closest we get to a genre term. We get hard rockers like "Sheer Heart Attack" and "It´s Late" but also some more "experiemental" tracks like "All Dead, All Dead" and "Get Down, Make Love". The brilliant and epic "Spread Your Wings" deserves a special mention too.

There are a couple of more standard quality tracks on the album but they are far outnumbered by high quality material and overall "News of the World" comes off as an excellent release to these ears. I really like how they tightened up their sound without sacrificing integrity or adventurous songwriting. A 4 star rating (80%) is deserved.
Warthur
Established classic rock acts were faced with the snarling, spitting challenge of punk in 1977. Some of them reacted better than others, and in my view Queen were one of the groups that reacted poorly, padding News of the World out with unenthusiastic and sloppy hard rock numbers clearly intended to give the band some tough guy credibility. We Will Rock You is one of the most moronic, repetitive, dull and dreary rock anthems I have ever heard, and it baffles me how anyone above the age of 11 manages to find any enjoyment in it at all. Sheer Heart Attack is an old song from, obviously, the Sheer Heart Attack sessions, which has transparently had a punkish guitar line superimposed over it in order to repurpose the song as a jab at punk.

Sandwiched between those is We Are the Champions, which like We Will Rock You is horribly overexposed, terminally cheesy, horrendously predictable and simplistic and overall really not that good. After three utter duds in a row like that, the album improves somewhat, meandering through unappealing pomp-rock and fey pop of the sort dabbled with on A Day At the Races. None of it is notable enough to forgive the horrible opening of the album, nor is it significant enough to really merit a place in the Queen canon. Quite simply, this is one the most inessential and skippable albums Queen would release in the 1970s.
