4 stars QR has been my favorite band since 1987. When I give my opinion, I don't like to jump the gun so I waited a long time since it's release to give my opinion on OMII. Without doing a long song-by-song breakdown which I for one think are too long and not necessary, I will say that OMII is indeed the best QR output since Promised Land, maybe a little higher. The first Mindcrime is obviously in a league to itself, so that comparison is unfair. If there was never a Mindrime I, then this album would be in the top 2 or 3 by QR, topped only by Rage for Order and maybe Empire, in my opinion. This album took the longest of any Ryche album to grow on me though for some reason. You gotta give the boys credit for having the nads to give this a go. If you like the Ryche's heavier side, then pick it up and enjoy. Standout tracks for me are The Hands, Speed of Light, The Chase, Intentional Confrontation. Sweet stuff.
