I'll admit, I'm not that experienced in the genre of Progressive Metal - in fact I had never heard any of Queensrÿche's music before buying this album. However the legacy of this band, review scores around 9/10, and a price tag of $20 (fairly cheap in my country) prove a combination hard for me to resist. Given the factors above, my expectations for this album were quite high and that was probably a mistake on my part, as now when I play this record I can't help feeling disappointed.

Rating: 8 One of Tate's best performances vocally throughout this album. Great stuff!

  Roads To Madness is the best track on the album

Rating: 5 Tate has a good singing voice hear. But seldom have I heard such safe music as the one Queensryche presents. Absolutely no bite at all, and in the end, just boring.

Rating: 7 For me this is a good album, but I get the feeling that these songs could generally be a bit faster and/or heavier. As it is, the album does have some remarkably good songs: "Before The Storm" (catchy as fck), "NM 156" (a bit faster than most here) and "Roads To Madness" (boring start, but gets better later). Still I prefer the EP.

This is their best for me. The band and the hardcore fans probably dont agree but the production (Guthrie) on this album, which is quite un-metallish (slow?), makes it way more epic than the other albums.
