Prog Reviewer
4 stars Queensryche went from the brilliant, more heavy debut The Warning further to a more synth/key dominanted sound on their second full length album "Rage For Order". They proove again that they truly are "the thinking man's metal band", it's not just another nickname. So another well done album and one of their best so far. One of the best albums of the '80 no doubt. Every piece sounds futuristic because of the more keys added to music, this album has nothing in common with The warning witch is heavy metal a la Iron Maiden, and sounds very different from the next one Operation who also is more heavy then this one. The band said in a magazin from the early '90 that is the most comercial album they ever made 'till then. Maybe is a little lighter then even Empire but some piece is mindblowing: the opening track Walk In The Shadows, Chemical Youth (we are rebellion) the fastest and hardest from here and the last one I will remember (just listen to the voice of Geoff Tate ) absolute stunning. So my rate is a big 4, and recommended to every one.
