"Promised Land" is arguably Queensrÿche's most progressive release. Both "Warning" and "Rage For The Order" are more adequately described as sophisticated US power metal while "Operation: Mindcrime" is simply sophisticated heavy metal. And "Empire" is, well whatever it is, you bet it's sophisticated as well.

Rating: 7 This album is extremely underrated!! Sure it's no masterpiece like Operation: Mindcrime, but this is still a really cool album, and shows the band probably at their most progressive and mature. Their last good album IMO.

AGreed, and it's actually quite a dark album as well. IMO far better than the overporduced slickness of the radio friendly Empire

I like this album as well. The production is awesome.

Rating: 8 This is a very underrated album, and the last Queensryche album that I would actually call great. It's a progressive, and an exciting album, with some amazing songs on it.

Yeah, maybe, but also some weak songs. My girlfriend once overhead me listening to the song "Bridge" and almost doubled over with laughter at how corny it was. Don't get me wrong, I like the song but it's a pretty funny pop song with cheesy lyrics. To be frank, I think they lost their way a bit after Operation: Mindcrime when you think how good that album was. Still, not many bands ever produce one album as good as that one.

Rating: 8 Very good album!! The last album to feature their classic sound

Rating: 8 Good forgotten album but this once great band. Undoubtedly their last with the classic sound. Possibly the worst of the classic era, but still damn good.
