Prog Reviewer
4 stars Role as simple Hard Rock when listener considers meaning of this album for Queensryche. Or, it might be understood that it is Rock album that contains a lot of parts where this album was counted very in total if it catches based on the flow in the 80's that Hard Rock and Heavy Metal caused.

If some respects are considered, it is a point to have appointed Neil Kernon to this album as a producer. And, a progressive, Kon futuristic lyrics and idea that chases the flow from the debut album and reaches with this album. And, guitar player's Chris DeGarmo makes remarks on the production of this album. These elements might surely have remarkably told the listener the revolution as the band.

Chris DeGarmo is said, "The sample of various sounds was recorded by digital and reproduced with the keyboard" as a statement for that time. The meaning of the album and the establishment of the concept might be calculated indeed as a band and be done surely. From "The Warning" to might one of big factors to accomplish revolution of band in 2 years those elements

And, the fact that appoints Neil Kernon to this album. The band might not have been at least requesting work to go to Neil Kernon by "Dokken" and "Autograph" as a real intention of the band. Arrangement and composition of idea and tune that should be done as band with this album. Those points are indeed calculated.

This album might not have been approved only by the part of advancement when thinking about the flow from which advancement and the revolution were requested as a band. Of course at that time, the meaning of various ideas, machine parts, and lyrics might have been considered to do the idea concretely. However, Neil Kernon that does good work in initial Queen exists. And, the directionality of the music that the band thought about. They might not at least follow the part of classics and there be a fact not approved either. And, when it started this album, the band might have been considering various possibilities. Details from "The Warning" to this album might have surprised the listener as music of the band that had evolved surely. Not only the part of simple Hard Rock and Heavy Metal but also these albums that completely united a progressive element as a tune remarkably showed what should be of Rock in the future that the band held at the same time as succeeding as a music character of Queensryche at that time.

Arrangement as emotional lyrics and Rock straight of "Walk In The Shadows". Or, it has a beautiful melody and a moving arrangement "I Dream In Infrared". And, it progresses while taking the rhythm of the shuffle "The Whisper". A digital part is already included in the tune and has offered the listener the evolution of the band. Kon a very futuristic "Gonna Get Close To You" digital sound has been taken to the tune. It might be a part where the band has surely exceeded the region as Rock Band. The idea has succeeded. "London" and "Screaming In Digital" that establishes the directionality of music at that time as the band might be elements that surely showed the directionality of the album. The performance that they had done told the listener to have transformed to the band by which the band had a completely progressive flow.

The music of Queensryche in the 80's was offering the listener the flow that advanced surely. As for these elements, I will be able surely to feel the process of advancement exactly. And, evolving for them might have been an act of some nature. And, the flow is connected with the work that should be able to be called their one tops by "Operation:Mindcrime".
