2 stars A solid debut ep for Queensryche. It definatly has a Iron Maiden or Judas Priest feel as others have said, and only has a little of the progressiveness that would come on Queensrych`s later recordings. The album opens with Queen of the Reich (one of my favorite songs by Queensryche) which has solid riffs and display Geoff Tate`s excellent voice. The next song, Nightrider is a somewhat cliche Maiden/Priest sounding song as is Blinded. The final song on the original EP is The Lady Wore Black, which shows a hint of the prog metal that was to come later, and is a good album closer. The Reissued cd I have includes several live versions of these songs and songs off their "The Warning" cd. Which are all pretty good but nothing to get overly excited about. Overall this is a solid debut for Queensryche but at this point they were still in the process of developing an original sound. I would recommend it to all Queensryche fans, however if you are not a big fan of them then dont bother with this one.
