2 stars Distaste comes to mind whenever I listen to this album. One thing comes to mind when ever this racous music comes on. Hollywood. To me this album felt like a strained attempt to continue a story that should've been left uncontinued. The cliffhanger in the first Mindcrime was perfect in my mind, to me this is just a desperate money maker. But then, when something has a II printed on the label and is a continueation from an epic movie, I always look at it as a downfall. Like Disney sequals for example. There's a foundation that I cannot find, it's just power cords and obnoxious singing. This album is really soemthing I can't get into. I've listened to it, and I knew that this band took a decline, but this kind of didn't help. Their epic story continues on from the first Mindcrime, continuing from an awsome Catholic corruption album to some lady getting out of jail and ready to do stuff. I don't know, their supposed singles never caught me good, and the only song that caught me someone enjoyable was Fear City Slide and somewhat the Hands. Both sound like their roots to me. Their attempts at dialoge didn't catch me interested, plus Tate's vocals didn't catch me to interested. Enough said this is a 2 star label for the fans only. That's why I bought it, I'm a fan, but not big enough to fall in love with this album. Check if out fans, but for hte rest, do as you feel is right.

2 stars, good try queensryche, but I can't enjoy this as much as I'd like.
