It's been long enough, I guess. Here's Queensr˙che's sophomore opus, Rage for Order. \'arry \'eadbanger



Recorded at M.D.H. Studios, Bellevue, WA; Le Mobile Remote Sound Studio; Mushroom Studios, Vancouver, Canada (1985–1986)

Released: June 27th, 1986

Produced by Neil Kernon

Geoff Tate - Vocals, Keyboard
Chris DeGarmo - Guitars, Vocals
Michael Wilton - Guitars
Eddie Jackson - Bass, Vocals
Scott Rockenfield - Drums, Percussion

Tunes
Walk in the Shadows
I Dream in Infrared
The Whisper
Gonna Get Closer to You (Dalbello cover)
The Killing Words
Surgical Strike
Neue Regel
Chemical Youth (We Are Rebellion)
London
Screaming in Digital
I Will Remember

"The album explored social/personal, political and technological themes, among others highlighting the dangers of artificial intelligence and government intrusion. The concept of robotics would also be emphasized through the use of staccato rhythms and vocal effects such as a reverse echo."

This one was a tough choice for me, but I'm going with "Surgical Strike", followed by "I Dream in Infrared", and "Walk in the Shadows".

Can I cast a negative vote to Gonna Get Close To You? All the other songs are good or great.

I was always put off by the rape-y vibe of that song, but I suppose the chorus (or whatever you'd call it) is pretty catchy.

I avoided the album for the longest time for the same reason. I got assurances from numerous people that the rest of the album was not like that song. Over time I've grown to tolerate the tune but it's easily the worst on the album.

This one is an easy one for me: Neue Regel. I actually like Gonna. It has a nice creepy vibe that fits the rest of the album.

I voted for Walk in the Shadows, but easily could've voted for any track. I even like Gonna Get Close to You.

Every song here is great (well the DalBello cover tune is alright) but I went with "Screaming In Digital" for the win.

I remember my cover looking slightly different. I went with Walk in the Shadows. Wasn't too impressed with this at the time, and thought it would have been a whole lot better without all of the studio stuff. The riffs were there.

This is my favourite Queensryche release. I went with Walk In The Shadows, but all tracks are great.

Odd seeing all the dislike for "Gonna Get Close To You".Being a Canadian, the Lisa Dalbello song was well known to me as it was an early eighties radio standard up here, and it was kind of crazy that Queensryche would do a cover of it and I think they do a pretty fine rendition.

I did catch them for the first time live on this tour, and they opened with Neue Regal; which may be a tie for me as best/favourite from this one.

Going with Neue Regel. Could've easily picked Walk in the Shadows, The Whisper, or The Killing Words.

The Killing Words just barely over Walk In The Shadows and I Will Remember.

My favorite Ryche album. Absolutely fantastic. Not sure I can even pick an accurate favorite, to be honest. So many great songs. Such a unique album, too.

And I dig "Gonna Get Close to You." Terrible choice for a lead-off single, though. Something tells me Geoff pushed for that one.

OK, I finally listened to this enough to make a decision. Nothing really jumped out at me, but "Walk In The Shadows" is good, so that's what I chose. "Surgical Strike" and "I Dream In Infrared" were considerations, too.

Their masterpiece. It's a tie between The Whisper and The Killing Words.
