The Works is a 1984 rock album by English band Queen. The band's eleventh studio album, it marked a partial return to their rock roots, although with a much lighter approach. It has also the heaviest electronics amongst all group albums. In comparison, rock was mostly absent on their previous effort Hot Space giving room to dance and funk with the use of analogue synths and brass, while electronics were not that much present.
Recorded at the Record Plant Studios and Musicland Studios from August 1983 to January 1984 .
