Guest review by

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.
