5 stars This is the band's most progressive effort, alongside with Rage for Order probably. This one was released on a time that Queensryche had been growing quite large on popularity with 88's Operation:Mindcrime, and even more with the more mainstream sound of Empire, so it would be possible to maintain that certain sound of success. But the band broke the barriers with this progressive masterpiece, turned to a much darker and mystical sound, dived deeped into human emotion and created the best album of their carreer(along with Mindcrime of course). I must admit that it took me a while to get used to this album, but there was something there that dragged my attention in from the beggining, making me to want to listen to it more and more, until I fully understand its beauty. It is a solid album of a common musical style and certain feeling, but some tracks are able to excel, like I am I, Damaged, Lady Jane or Someone Else, and are still reminders of this gem on the band's live concerts. In simple words, probably the most definite expression of progression in metal music.
