Album Description:

THE WORKS is the tenth studio album by British rock band Queen, released in February 1984. A partial return to their rock roots, although with a much lighter approach, the record has also the heaviest electronics amongst all group albums. In comparison, rock was mostly absent on their previous effort HOT SPACE giving room to dance and funk with the use of analogue synths and brass, while electronics were not that much present. Recorded at the Record Plant Studios and Musicland Studios from August 1983 to January 1984, the album''s title comes from a comment drummer Roger Taylor made as recording began "Let''s give them the works!"

With their previous album HOT SPACE confusing many of their fans, Queen had something to prove on THE WORKS. The band definitely succeeded at getting back on track - THE WORKS was one of the best rock releases of 1984, featuring the worldwide smash "Radio Ga Ga" and reintroducing their fans to Queen''s classic sound. THE WORKS spawned a total of four U.K. top ten singles, confirming that Queen had returned from their short hiatus in fine form.

Almost all of the elements you''ve come to expect from a classic Queen release are present on here. "I Want To Break Free" and "It''s A Hard Life" are instantly addictive pop-rock. "Tear It Up" is a straight-ahead rocker and "Machines (Back To Humans)" is a successful electronic rock experiment. And as on the majority of latter-day Queen albums, there are a few politically charged tunes. "Hammer To Fall," became an instant concert favorite with it''s merger of melodic hard rock and a sing-a-long chorus, but the lyrics deal with the impending danger of nuclear build-up. The other, "Is This The World We Created?," consists of just vocals with acoustic guitar accompaniment, and closes the otherwise upbeat album on a somber note.

Queen: Brian May (vocals, guitar, banjo, keyboards); Freddie Mercury (vocals, piano); Roger Taylor (vocals, drums); John Deacon (bass).
Additional personnel: Fred Mandel (piano, synthesizer, programming).

Recorded at the Record Plant, Los Angeles and Musicland Studios, Munich from August 1983-January 1984.
