I didn’t realize that in order to be considered “prog metal” you have to copy every note from museWink… for my taste; from the very first ep till promised land, Queensryche is 100% prog metal

Although both bands are much closer to traditonal heavy metal than to prog metal, both have enough progressive elements and influence on modern prog metal that their inclusion is a no-brainer.
 
I totally agree with you,but was always puzzled at QR's music being considered prog metal.It's more "prog-related" if you ask me.
 
On top of that lots of times it sounds more like hard rock than metal to me.

I've always thought Empire superior to Mindcrime.

Operation Mindcrime, no question. Their other albums I had (Warning, Rage For Order, Empire, Tribe) are just ordinary to my ears. Haven't heard 'Promised Land' though...

Operation Mindcrime.
 
It always amazes me that people think QR is prog metal(they aren't,IMHO),but the band they ripped off when they first came out,Iron Maiden...aren't.

i voted for Rage for Order
 
i'm not sure if its their BEST album... but its my favorite...
 
Killing Words, Surgical Strike, Neue Regel, London & Screaming in Digital are my favorite songs off of that album.
 
although the production may sound a lil outdated now`, but this album is just so intelligent, well written & well played.... & the lyrics are out of this world...

OMI, though I love every one but Hear in the Now and Q2K. I just got Mindcrime at the Moore. If you don;'t like OMII, get this, it sounds do much better live. I saw them here in Atlanta and it completely reversed my opinion of the album.

Mindcrime, hands down. But unlike some of you who hold that everything else sucks, I disagree. Everything else (for the most part) is also quite good, just not on the same level as O:M.

Promised Land is my favourite, but i also like a lot Operation I and Empire. PL is their most progressive effort, while OM Is more straight metal with prog elements and Empire is where they started to show a more prog-metal oriented music. All of them pretty good
