5 stars In my opinion this is the best concept album in heavy metal. Having a rich sound with mix of prog and power metal elements, Queensryche release their magnum opus. The story here is a deep cut to the problems of modern american society. Each song is a part of the story which gets your interest by the time you pay a litle atention to the lyrics. Musicaly the power metal of the 80's is transformed to something else here by using some progresive parts. Icould compare the sound of the album with the sound of Crimson Glory's Transedence but Queensryche here seem to have a stronger personality. Melodic guitars, excelent solos,and a very impresive rythm section lead by the magnificent voice of Geof Tate. Maybe the best performance by one of the best metal singers. Overall a must have for prog metal fans.
