4 stars As another Queensryche fan since the late 80s, I am happy to say that this album is a worthy successor to O:M2. It is nowhere near as good but it is easily the best album from the band in a decade. Others have done a good job summarizing the tracks on an individual basis so I'll just add my general thoughts. The album is good but not great. It lacks the heights of the original and the lows are lower, IMO. It does capture a piece of the original magic (wisely returning to the same key as the original and incorporating many of the same themes) and has a number of very good tracks such as Rearrange-you; One Foot in Hell; The Hands; Hostage and the Chase. The bottomline is that this is a worthy addition to the Queensryche legacy and should be enjoyed on its own merits. Go in with your eyes open (not expecting it to approach the original), and you should enjoy O:M2. I would give it a 75 out of 100.
