I think Queensryche knew when they made this record that they'd never reach these heights again. Geoff Tate's soul bared itself over a collection of powerful, raw (as far as Queensryche's production is ever raw), emotion-charged songs. It's rare to find an album without a weak song and the reason you won't here is that there is just only song: It changes tempo, changes mood, but doesn't let up. I defy anybody to sit down and just put on their favorite track. It doesn't work like that. Start at the start, end at the end, and don't miss a beat in between. The band recognised this themselves and actually played the entire thing live.....I've said enough - Just buy it.
