Reviews:

''Jazz'' is the seventh studio album by British rock band Queen, released in November 1978. The album's varying musical styles were alternately praised and criticised; it was subject to a viciously scathing ''Rolling Stone'' review by Dave Marsh which included the suggestion that "Queen may be the first truly fascist rock band." Nevertheless, the album made it to number six on the U.S. ''Billboard'' 200. Roy Thomas Baker temporarily reunited with Queen and became their producer for this album. It was 3 years since he co-produced Queen's 1975 album ''A Night at the Opera''. But this album also was the last album he co-produced for the band.

Queen sold the album with a poster depicting the all-female nude bicycle race staged to promote "Fat Bottomed Girls". A small version of the poster comes with the ''Crown Jewels'' box set. This was the first Queen album recorded outside the UK, for tax purposes. Included in the liner notes is the attribution "Thunderbolt courtesy of God", referring to the crash of thunder heard at the end of the song "Dead On Time" which May recorded with a portable audio recorder during a thunderstorm. The album artwork was suggested by Roger Taylor, who previously saw a similar design painted on the Berlin Wall. - Wikipedia
