3 stars This is not Progressive Metal, it isn't even Metal. This is hard rock. Good hard rock. Though I don't care for some of the subject matter. What people find progressive about it may be the sound effects (sound effects and cellos don't make prog, Queensryche didn't use cellos that I can remember, but that seems to be a common misconception nowadays) or the borrowed chord progressions from Pink Floyd. I can understand the borrowed chord progressions. It's very common and you can't copyright a chord progression. Some of the choruses are very good, very catchy. Again, that's not what prog is about. Queensryche, if they were wanting to be more progressive, should've studied a little more what the roots of progressive rock were. They were not Pink Floyd. It's classical music and jazz combined with Rock. Queensryche plays a few sound effects and augmented chords and people say it's progressive. I don't think so. Sub-par album if we're calling it progressive.
