5 stars This is 1986 in Seattle and this is heavy metal. Considered as a classic, "Rage For Order" is included in most lists of best metal albums of all-time. I agree with that, but I think this is derogatory for this album. This is progressive metal at birth. The insiration of the band is phenomenal and the songwriting has nothing to do with "The Warning". There is a unique groove which reminds even of pop artists. "Gonna Get Close To You" sounds like Prince plays neo-prog. The dramatic atmosphere in many tracks is a precursor of what happens throughout "Operation Mindcrime". The guitar melodies and riffs are innovative to say the least, especially whenever Chris DeGarmo comes in. The vocal abilities of Geoff Tate are impossible to describe. His singing/narrating style has influenced most prog metal singers from then on. Favourite tracks:"Walk In The Shadows", "I dream In Infra Red", "Neue Regel".
