4 stars The first official studio album by Queensryche! For a band that delivered quite so much of metal elements in their previous EP, this album proved that the band had grown up. The album opener is a mid-tempo track which would leave you wonder because it's quite different than the content in the EP. "En Force" and "Deliverance" followed on later with a more heavy riffs and faster tempo. "No Sanctuary" is meant to be a ballad but somehow it lacked its feeling to it. The following track, "NM 156" is a unique set of song with a somewhat futuristic element. But the fun did not end there. The last four tracks shows that things are getting better and great! "Take Hold of The Flame" is surely a Queensryche classic, a mid-tempo song with a crunchy-guitar playing. "Before The Storm" for me is a sod song but it's delivered in a strange mood perfectly shaped by the guitar-riffs. "Child of Fire" is one of the first Queensryche songs I ever heard. Fast, high-note screaming. What else? This is a great headbanging song. This album is closed with a 9+ minutes track called "Roads To Madness". Started with a slow-tempo --an almost ballad track-- but ended up with a powerful and fast music. This album is hardly called a progressive rock album in terms of skills show-off but it definitely some progressive elements in there. [davidewata, Indonesia]
