Recorded in Munich, Germany, with co-producer and enginner Mack, The Game contains many of the group's best titles and is considered by many to be their finest effort. Originally released in 1980, the title's sound mix is large, with the group's patented tight harmonies spread across a wide sound-stage: The late Freedie Mercury's lead vocals soar high and low with emotion; Brian May's cutting and ringing guitar blends with the steady timekeeping of drummer Roger Taylor and bassist John Deacon.
This collection features very strong writing, including surprising contributions from Deacon with Another One Bites The Dust as well as his homage to Eric Carmen/The Raspberries with I Need Your Loving Tonight. Mercury's Crazy Little Thing Called Love and Play The Game supply the other mega-hits from this album. Selections are rounded out with Dragon Attack, Rock It, Don't Try Suicide, Sail Away Sweet Sister, Coming Soon and Save Me.
