Biography

Queensrÿche never stop progressing.

That's why they remain one of the most revered hard rock outfits in history with over 20 million albums sold globally and 6 million in the U.S. alone. It's why shows continue to sell out everywhere and hits such as "Silent Lucidity" eternally blare across radio waves. It's why they've got one of the most diehard and ...

5.0 out of 5 stars A cold classic 10 Mar 2005
By U Dick VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is Queensryche`s second full album after 1984`s poorly produced "The Warning", and at the time the pressure was on the band to live up to the potential of their self financed E.P. which had set the metal world alight in 1983. The band continue with the Orwellian themes of "The Warning" on this CD, but the results are far darker and even now there is something eerily futuristic in these songs. At the time the LP was marketed with the apt slogan "Every chord a power chord" and time has dimmed none of that power.
The first song "Walk in the shadows" perfectly showcases all of the bands strengths: Geoff Tates excellent vocals, the duelling lead guitars of Chris DeGarmo and Michael Wilton, the solid rhythm work courtesy of Eddie Jackson on bass and drummer Scott Rockenfield and some truely mind blowing instrumental and vocal arrangements. Every song on this album is superb but special mention must go to the gothic "Neue regel", with it`s otherworldly wierdness, the mechanical and menacing "Screaming in digital" and the beautiful but unsettling "I will remember". There is a magnificent granduer to all of the songs. The sound is a contemporary (for the Eighties) production, but never sounds dated, unlike many other albums of that era.
The bonus tracks are alright although it would have been nice to get more live tracks from this era, as the band seem to almost overlook this period when they put together live shows and albums. I would love Queensryche to make another CD in this style but I doubt they ever will. Pity. If you like your metal on the pompous side then this is very much for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Queensryche Classic 31 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
Rage for Order is the bands 1986 release. This album if often considered to be one of Queenryches finest hours, the style of which was later re-touched upon in their 1994 album `Promised Land`. Several tracks are beloved QR classics, such as the covered song `Gonna get close to you` and `Screaming In Digital`. The whole album beholds a mystic, vampirish feel, and one look at the sleeve photgraph hints at the bands gothic reaches, something they never did again! The creative sound of this release and the content is a dark overview, but with some quiet little gems such as the atmospheric `I will remember`. Many fans often cry out for the band to return to these roots and to produce more tracks along this sort of line, hence the success of Promised Land. Any QR fan should already own this album, if you like Promised Land, you`ll love this, its older and much bolder brother.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is Art! 29 Aug 2002
Format:Audio CD
Rage For Order was a revelation to me the first time I heard it.Having bought and listened to Operation:Mindcrime first,Rage For Order came as a shock to the system.Although not as heavy or bombastic as 'Mindcrime it does feel darker and comes across as a delicate blend of terror and romanticism.Throughout the album Queensryche are able to create such dramatic and precise ways of conveying the subjects of each song but always manage to make it sound so graceful and unforced.Particular highlights for me are "Neue Regel","Walk In The Shadows","I Dream In Infrared" and "Screaming In Digital",but I love the whole album and I find it impossible to find a fault with it.Buy this album and let it change your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Every Chord A Power Chord' 19 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
Comparing Queensryche first album The Warning to their second opus Rage For Order is like comparing the Bleriot plane to a Harrier Jump Jet. The Warning is a lumbering, awkward stodgy sounding record from a band finding it's feet whereas Rage is a monumental technical tour de force, influenced as much by Bauhaus as say Judas Priest or Rush. This is simply magnificent on every level. And what makes the hair stand up on your neck when listening to it? Well, based loosely on a concept of World Order, paranoia, voyeurism, failed personal relationships and control the whole album rocks on the back of beautifully constructed but powerful songs - there is nothing obvious in here, no simple riff or basic construct to latch onto - each song layers complex riffs, on keyboards and Geoff's sublime anguished vocal delivery - he simply lives the theme of each track, particularly on the taut 'Killing Words' or the claustrophobic cover version of 'Gonna Get Close To You' (the line 'if you only knew my infinite charm' conveys a level of menace rarely committed to tape). There are clever linking atmospheric sounds that bond the songs loosely to the undercurrent themes, and there is a tight, dark, melancholic feel to the whole which is quite unsettling. It is unrelentingly intense, albeit with a ebb and flow in pace, and immensly slick throughout. This sustains right through to the final haunting acoustic respite/refrain of `I will remember', which gives the listener a welcome time to reflect on the aural assault they've just been through. Question is - is it better than Mindcrime that followed it? The answer is - possibly yes.
