Hot Space (Bonus Tracks)

by Queen
Hot Space by Queen
Released: May 1982
Label: Hollywood Records
This is when a lot of Queen's American fans, virile hard rockers who openly despised disco and other forms of club music, jumped what they perceived as a sinking ship. On 1982's Hot Space, the band that proudly dismissed synthesizers just a few years prior was now embracing dance pop and new wave not far removed from The Human League and Gary Numan. Queen experimented with similar ideas on The Game, but here they're less jagged and slashing, more sexy and slick. The band turns more "rawk" by the record's second half, but the music still exudes a purely early-'80s vibe: plastic and high energy.
