Critique

Au tournant des années 70-80, Freddie Mercury se prend d'amour pour les musiques dansantes en vogue dans les clubs. En 1980, l'album The Game inaugure ce tournant, avec le morceau au succès planétaire « Another One Bites The Dust ». C'est de cette dynamique impulsée par Freddie Mercury ainsi que John Deacon (amateur de toujours de soul et de funk) qu'est issu ce 11ème album de Queen. C'est également de cet élan vers les sonorités dansantes et synthétiques en vogue (on assiste alors à la percée dans les charts de la synth-pop et de la new wave) que naîtra le premier album solo de l'excentrique Castafiore moustachue, Mr Bad Guy, qui sortira en 1985. Hot Space sera très décrié par les fans et la critique; et Queen ne jouera d'ailleurs quasiment aucun morceau en live, hormis le single « Under Pressure ». Issu d'autres sessions que celles des titres de l'album, ce beau duo avec David Bowie était sorti isolément quelques mois avant l'album, et n'a été ajouté en dernière minute que pour limiter le fiasco qui semblait inévitable.

L'album peut être divisé en deux parties, qui correspondent aux deux faces du 33t original. La première, dansante, est composée de morceaux surprenants dans un registre funk/disco, sur lesquels la session rythmique, et singulièrement la basse de John Deacon, est l'élément central. Autour de la quatre-cordes grasse, les compositions se parent çà et là de cuivres (« Staying Power »),  ou de sonorités synthétiques (« Action This Day »); souvent pour le pire plutôt que pour le meilleur. Des cinq premiers titres, seul « Back Chat » est à sauver, pour sa ligne mélodique à la guitare, son ambiance cool et le chouette solo de Brian May. Le reste n'est que que vulgarité dégoulinante, chant maniéré franchement agaçant, piteuses harmonies vocales, composition poussive et sans inspiration. Et, comme si cela n'était pas assez, les paroles sont d'une bêtise atterrante, dignes d'un boys band en chaleur : « give me your body / don’t talk, don’t talk », « Look at me / I’ve got the kiss of body language » ; « Baby you’re hot… » (« Body Language »)...

La face B, plus « rock », voit Queen évoluer dans des sonorités plus familières aux fans. Seul le funk ensoleillé à la guitare légère du bien nommé « Cool cat », dépare; le morceau est néanmoins l'un des meilleurs du disque et annonce déjà le funk délicat de « Pain is so close to pleasure » (A Kind Of Magic, 1986). Le hard rock « Put Out The Fire », qui rappelle étonnamment le Queen des années 1970, s'avère être l'un de leurs meilleurs morceaux rock de la décennie 1980 ; Brian May, très discret et très peu rock sur le reste de l'album s'y fait plaisir, et c'est jouissif. La ballade au piano dédiée à feu John Lennon « Life is real » est peu marquante, de même que « Calling all girls », qui rappelle « Gloria » (qu'ont intérprété successivement Van Morrison, The Doors et Patti Smith), ainsi que le niaiseux « Las palabras de amor ».

Hot Space est probablement le plus mauvais du groupe derrière le désastreux The Miracle. Largement ennuyeux, voire foncièrement agaçant, l'album justifie tout à fait le très mauvais accueil critique. Brian May et Roger Taylor eux-mêmes n'apprécièrent que peu ces expérimentations et les choses en restèrent là, Queen revenant à ce qu’il savait faire de mieux avec The Works en 1984.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Album That Could've Destroyed Anyone Else!! 20 janvier 2016
Par jude pepper - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD Achat vérifié
musical artists get accused of "selling out" so easily that i for one have learned to take it with the proverbial grain of salt. it seems that any perceptible deviation from a previous approach is enough to make someone somewhere cry foul. do certain listeners actually not want their favorite bands to grow artistically and/or adjust to whatever obstacles they might face?
lineup changes, for instance. ask yourself, did Van Halen really "sell out" upon recruiting Sammy Hagar, or did they simply modify their style to accommodate their new (and WAY more talented) frontman? they still rocked, Dave or Sammy, didn't they?
most bewildering is the fact that it's often used as an attempt to punish someone for being too successful. there were those who called Def Leppard's Hysteria the quintessential sellout...but only after it became such a massive, international "mainstream" smash, and some started calling it the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band of the '80s.
the most frequent catalyst seems to be simply having new musical ideas to experiment with. that's certainly the "sin" committed here. there are those who maintain that the album is noteworthy only for the David Bowie collaboration "Under Pressure". and of course, even that song became tainted goods once one Vanilla Ice got his hands on it.
although you'd think Queen of all acts could get away with it. they'd been '70s rock's foremost chameleon, the band most inclined to take the music wherever the muse wanted to go and least inclined to apologize for doing so. it's hard to say what was ballsier: concocting "Bohemian Rhapsody" in the first place, issuing it as a single, or following up such an epic with a straightforward pop ballad like "You're My Best Friend." either way Queen was a band who followed no rules but their own. so whatever else you wanna say about Hot Space, it is hardly out of character.
the most important point to establish is that it is NOT the least satisfying Queen album, not by a long shot. that dubious distinction goes to it's immediate predecessor, the Flash Gordon soundtrack. of course that was basically the fault of producer Dino De Laurentiis, who insisted the record be, basically, an abbreviated version of the movie rather than a proper rock album. their contribution certain works within the body of the film, but lost something when removed from it. one can only assume Flash is not the chink in the band's armor because Hot Space caught all the heat so soon after. of course, it could also be that the album is ultimately the vision of De Laurentiis rather than the band themselves. either way, Flash Gordon is the album that should occupy the position of shame generally attributed to Hot Space.
like many an innocent victim, the album's most frequent charge is a rather pat oversimplification. it's generally described as their disco album. well, first of all, that disco approach is limited to the first four songs. although granted, that's where the band's all-time great lapse in judgement lies: they actually selected "Body Language" - the single weakest song not simply on this record, but of the entire Queen discography - to be the single. honestly, what the hell were they smoking that day?
still, the other three are expertly crafted specimens of the genre, particularly John Deacon's "Back Chat." so fair enough if you don't care for disco, but you could never claim they couldn't pull it off. after all this is a band that had struck gold dabbling in a dizzying array of musics, including opera ("Bohemian Rhapsody"), show tunes ("Killer Queen"), folk ("'39"), ragtime ("Bring Back That Leroy Brown"), rockabilly ("Crazy Little Thing Called Love"), calypso ("Who Needs You?"), and thrash ("Stone Cold Crazy," "Sheer Heart Attack") before there even was such a thing!
(potentially mitigating circumstance: the band enjoyed a casual friendship at the time with Michael Jackson. it was at Jackson's suggestion that "Another One Bites The Dust" was released as a single and could become their second biggest hit in the States. Jackson has said that the disco portion of Hot Space was a significant inspiration for Thriller. although i daresay the detractors will simply argue that that's the "Wacko" part of Jacko in action.)
once they get the disco thing out of their system, we find the familiar band as delightfully eclectic as ever. Brain May's "Put Out The Fire" not only rocks but take a delightfully satirical look at America's 2nd Amendment (the right to bear arms). May then demonstrates his more sincere side with "Las Palabras De Amor (The Word Of Love)," a tuneful salute to fans of a certain nationality.
Freddie Mercury commemorates rock's then most recent tragedy with (his most underrated song ever in my opinion) "Life Is Real (Song For Lennon)." then he teams up with John Deacon to present "Cool Cat," a delicious serving of smooth jazz at it's smoothest.
Roger Taylor ain't no slouch, either. his "Calling All Girls" exudes a delightful '60s "garage band" vibe, and "Action This Day" turns an old Winston Churchill catchphrase into a rollicking stomp. (interestingly, one record later Taylor would paraphrases Churchill's "finest hour" quote in his "Radio Gaga." could "Winnie" be a personal hero of Roger's?)
Led Zeppelin III is an impressive record which certain measures up to, say, Led Zeppelin II or Physical Graffiti, but somehow never achieved the same level of acclaim. Jimmy Page surmises that the largely folk-driven album caught people's expectations off-guard, that listeners were "too busy waiting for what they expected to pay attention to what was in fact there." (oddly, it was particularly criticized for have no "Whole Lotta Love," when it's single was the even heavier "Immigrant Song." but that's another story.) looks like Queen painted themselves into the same corner, again using an album with more to offer than it gets credit for.
in a nutshell, maybe it's not so hot, but it's not exactly frigid, either.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hot Space has a lot of unneeded hate 18 octobre 2014

As a classic rocker, I can see why Queen fans detested this album when it came out. Gone are the long compositions full of rich Red Special solos, and instead synths combined with a funk sound. But honestly, listening to this thing fully, it's one of my favorite albums. Dancer, Cool Cat, Calling all Girls, Back Chat and Action this Day are great songs, I feel. Because right at the core, these 4 guys were very talented musicians and their compositions were fantastic. Of course, Under Pressure is also on here, and what can one say that hasn't been said already? While it's no "queen II/night at the opera/sheer heart attack", it's one of my favorites and i really enjoy the sound of it, despite it having a really distinct 80's sound to it, and not every song being a "classic". Cool Cat is my favorite song from this album and one of my favorite Queen songs - can't go wrong with John Deacon.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I am glad that Queen made "Hot Space". 26 mai 2013

I was sort of hesitate to order this album since I had been reading many negative review about Hot Space. It was a present surprise to listen to all the songs on this album. They are different from any other Queen albums, and none of Queen albums are same as other. I love to listen to Queen getting into the new territory. At the time when this album was newly released, it might have been difficult to understand the relevance of the album. This album represents Queen's never ending self invention.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 An underrated gem 13 janvier 2012
Par Englishman in New Jersey - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is generally regarded as being Queen's least loved album. That's somewhat understandable, given that they abandoned their most cherished hallmarks for this release; the lush, grandiose vocal and guitar harmonies on which the band built their reputation are conspicuously absent.

Nevertheless, if Hot Space is judged on its own merits rather than against notions of what constitutes a 'typical' Queen album, then it holds up very well indeed. John Deacon's bass playing is particularly memorable on this album, while Freddie's vocal performances are as good as ever. Although Brian May's guitar playing is somewhat low-key compared to earlier glories, he still lets rip with some ferocious solos on several songs. And the quality of the songs on offer is excellent.

One trademark of Queen's that is definitely present on this album is the diversity of the material. There is disco/funk (Staying Power, Back Chat, Body Language), soul (Cool Cat, Soul Brother), hard rock (Dancer, Put Out the Fire), ballads (Las Palabras de Amor, Life is Real) and of course the magnificent 'Under Pressure', recorded with David Bowie. The bonus EP is a welcome addition, although I've only listened to the first two songs so far.

A final thought to leave you with - in my opinion this is Queen's least impressive album after 'Made in Heaven' and 'Jazz' (I'm not counting Flash Gordon and I've not heard their studio album with Paul Rogers, neither do I want to), but I still love Hot Space and feel it worthy of four stars. Even Queen's lesser albums are gems, and that's the measure of how fine a band they were.

I first heard the music on a DVD Queen on Fire at the Bowl. That was a great performance by all, especially Freddie. However, I wanted the music to take with me in my car, so I bought Hot Space and it was excellent.
