5 stars DIS-CON-NEC-TED!

Clearly the best QUEENSRYCHE album. No more Maiden-esque heavy songs, no more commercial songs, just great songwriting and melodies.

Starting heavy with "I Am I" and "Damaged", the true talent of the band starts to appear with "Out Of Mind", very in the mood of psychiatrist asylum indeed. "Bridge" is another great mellow song. "Promised Land" is a dark epic track (ends funnily though). "Disconnected" is really something original: haunting vocals, soft melody... "Lady Jane" is another ballad, and QUEENSRYCHE are really good at writing ballads. Then you get "My Global Mind" and "One More Time": classic QUEENSRYCHE tracks, in the vein of Mindcrime/Empire mid-paced songs. "Someone Else ?" ends the album with a piano/voice performance from Geoff Tate: simply gorgeous.

Rating (not counting the first track "9:28 AM"): 90/100
