Funky or fugly?
After the phenomenal success of “Another One Bites The Dust”, Queen ventured further into dance-funk-pop territory, much to the distress of many of their loyal fans who adored their now classic pomp rock sound. Caught between a rock and a hard place, Hot Space is the sound of a band moving forward, for better or worse. In this episode we will discuss the album’s production history, its promotion and its critical and commercial reception. Each song will also be reviewed.
Originally released: May 21st, 1982.
