Prog Reviewer
4 stars The Third R˙che...

The acclaimed concept album which helped put Queensr˙che on the map.

The Good: The narrative follows a dissilusioned young man who is trying to recall his past life as a political assassin, fueled by a drug habit. Unlike many stories which are horribly cheesy or overpowering, these lyrics blend seamlessly into the album which is to metal what Tommy is to rock. The vocals from Geoff Tate are excellent and the compositions engaging.

Eyes of a Stranger is one of the best album finales I have ever heard.

The Bad: Musically it sounds just like standard heavy metal a lot of the time.

The Verdict: If you only ever listen to one Queensr˙che album then make sure its this.

Starhammer | 4/5 |
