4 stars A good album, but it's obvious that the band is still immature. Geoff Tate doesn't has his voice's torrent under control yet, and the songs are very similar between them. Nevertheless, the instrumental work is great... The production is good too, but far from the greatness of "Operation: Mindcrime" or "Empire", their two best works in my opinion.

"The Warning" has a lot of influence by bands like Judas Priest and Iron Maiden. But in songs like No Sanctuary (with a good orchestration by Michael Kamen...), the powerful Before the Storm and the dramatic Roads To Madness (almost ten minutes of innovative metal compositions because we are talking of a 1984's release...) we can hear an example of something wich in a future would be called progressive metal. For that, this album has very importance because its originality and anticipation, clearly surpassing another contemporary groups anchored in the NWOBHM.

A visionary album from one of the most influential bands of all times.
