Just because there are plenty of radio-friendly materials like ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ or ‘Don’t Stop Me Now’ that’s covered by countless artists, doesn’t mean that ‘Jazz’ isn’t qualified to be among their strongest albums. Sure the poppish effect may alienate some of the early fans, but there are plenty of great moments here that reminded us of how diverse QUEEN can be.

I remember digging this album, not because of those two hits, but because of the little ballad called ‘Jealousy’. I was in awe with his vocal and also May’s skill of emulating sitar sound using the piano wire. Another beautiful track is ‘Dreamer’s Ball’, I can’t explain it but this song is just so awesome, it’ll stick in your head for days when you heard it. ‘Mustapha’ is kinda weird but after a while, you’ll get used to it, even like it.

There are few fillers that I usually passed such as ‘Fun It’ or ‘More of That Jazz’, but most of the songs here are strong enough to keep me coming back. Great album!
