Reviews:

''Hot Space'' is the ninth studio album by British rock band Queen, released in May 1982. Marking a notable shift in direction from their earlier work, Queen employed many elements of disco, Pop Music, R&B and dance music on ''Hot Space'', being partially influenced by the success of their 1980 hit "Another One Bites the Dust". This made the album less popular with fans that preferred the traditional rock style they had come to associate with the band, though ''Hot Space'' did fit in with the Queen tradition of incorporating many disparate influences into their music.

Queen's decision to record a dance-oriented album germinated with the massive U.S. success of "Another One Bites the Dust" (and to a lesser extent, the UK success of the song too).. While the album's second single "Body Language" did peak at #11 on the U.S. charts.

"Under Pressure", Queen's collaboration with David Bowie, was released in 1981, ahead of the album and the controversy over Queen's new sound (disco-influenced rock music). The single was well-received by fans and became the band's 2nd #1 hit in the U.K.; it also reached #29 in the U.S. - Wikipedia
