5 stars This is the most underrated and darkest Queensr˙che album. From here the band never would be the same. The Promised Land concept, the lyrics, the misterious atmosphere, the artwork and, over the top, the beautiful tunes and the fantastic guitar harmonies made of this disc the best exemple of how progressive metal have to be played. Finally the band get the perfect Pink Floyd approach that they was searching for a long time and wrote some unforgottable songs, like the acoustic jewel Bridge (inspired maybe in Genesis' Entagled), the epic ballad Lady Jane (with a grand piano intro that always made me cry), the very strange, experimental and long Promise Land (with Geoff Tate giving with his saxophone a King Crimson touch before the Tool boom), the four perfect straight to mind catchy tracks (Damaged, Out of Mind, My Globald Mind & One More Time), the electronic experiment Disconnected and the perfect final duel between just one piano and the magnificient Tate voice Someone Else? Unfortunately after this piece of art Queensr˙che creativity fall down without fail.
