Sail Away Sweet Sister Sail Away Sweet Sister 5. Cheeeek that out dude. Lead RIFFs:. Queen had long been one of the biggest bands in the world by 's The Game , but this album was the first time they made a glossy, unabashed pop album, one that was designed to sound exactly like its time.
They might be posed in leather jackets on the cover, but they hardly sound tough or menacing -- they rarely rock, at least not in the gonzo fashion that's long been their trademark. Gone are the bombastic orchestras of guitars and with them the charging, relentless rhythms that kept Queen grounded even at their grandest moments. But even that is an exception to the rule on The Game. Usually, when they want to rock here, they wind up sounding like Boston , as they do on John Deacon 's "Need Your Loving Tonight," or they sound a bit like a new wave-conscious rocker like Billy Squier , as they do on the propulsive "Coming Soon.
So, The Game winds up as a mixed bag, as many Queen albums often do, but again the striking difference with this album is that it finds Queen turning decidedly, decisively pop, and it's a grand, state-of-the-art circa pop album that still stands as one of the band's most enjoyable records.
However, having a "dragon on your back" and "chasing the dragon" are also druggie terms. Some of the lyrics support this view e. What do you think?

Show time -got a dragon on my back Show down -go find another customer Slow down -i gotta make my way "Queen is the only band in the world that can play so heavily that your nose bleeds, then offer a silk handkerchief to clean up with.

From what I've read, their working relationship didn't get off on the right foot. But they later worked with him on several occasions, even on solo projects. Yara Royalty: posts.
