The Game (Queen album). The Game is the eighth studio album by the British rock band Queen released on 30 June 1980. It was the only Queen album to reach in the US and became their best selling studio album in the US with four million copies sold to date, tying News of the World's US sales tally.

Queen had long been one of the biggest bands in the world by 1980'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. Now, when they rock, they'll haul out a clever.

Studio album The Game, was Queen’s first to drop in the ‘80’s, smack in the middle of 1980, June 30th. Did it feature a band at the top of their game ? It was a royal flush of sorts, . a mega-platinum winner, especially in America. Queen were super-touring troupers, plus a lot was going on during this run, including the recording of Flash Gordon (six months after The Game, it was done, . the movie’s soundtrack, by Queen). Plus The Game is good fodder for a flash into how the music industry rewards lucrative plays, from gold to multiplatinum, and how this round of their eight-ball album’s hits, best shots to the top pockets of pop-rock legend airwaves, leading them down to their funk of disco-dredge hubris as Hot Space, still a colorful line of failed chic
