The darkest and most progressive entry in the Queensr˙che discography, marking the end of their classic era.



Recorded at home, in the Dungeon, at Triad and Big Log Studios from summer of 1992 through Spring of 1994.

Released: October 18, 1994

Produced by James Barton

Geoff Tate - Vocals, Saxophone, Keyboards
Chris DeGarmo - Guitars, Piano, Cello, Sitar
Michael Wilton - Guitars
Eddie Jackson - Bass
Scott Rockenfield - Drums

Tunes
9:28 AM
I Am I
Damaged
Out of Mind
Bridge
Promised Land
Dis Con Nec Ted
Lady Jane
My Global Mind
One More Time
Someone Else?

Their highest charting record to date. The songs on this album are tied together firmly by the theme of success and how to deal with it, and reflections on American society and how that shapes our goals in life. In July 2014, Guitar World ranked Promised Land at number 23 in their "Superunknown: 50 Iconic Albums That Defined 1994" list.

"Bridge" for me. It's not a song that touches upon anything specific to me, but growing up with a seriously strained father/son relationship this song just resonated with me. It used to bring me to tears.

My father is now many years sober (took 20 to get there) and we have a good relationship, something I never thought would happen. I wonder if Chris and his father ever reconnected.

Anyway, if I had to pick two more I'd go with "Promised Land" and the full-band version of "Someone Else?" Yeah, yeah, that version isn't on the album. Whatever. It should have been. It is far superior to the stripped down album version.

Outstanding album, though. So underrated.

This album never clicked with me. I guess I'd go with I Am I. I should give this one another try some day. Who knows, it may be better than I remember.

My favorite track is actually the bonus track "Real World" but Bridge is the track that gets my vote here.

Really strong album; it's very melancholy for a QR release.

I probably would be in the minority, but I enjoy this album more than "Empire!" My favorite song would be "Damaged" and then "One More Time".

I had jumped ship at this point, so I have nothing to add.

I never heard it and will put some ears on it for the first time for the sake of participating in the thread. Just like I did for almost half of the Judas Priest polls. Get back with ya'll later on this.

I don't have this. I hear good things about it. Maybe I should get it?

But I didn't even really like Empire that much. That metallic edge was gone. And I don't like prog.

I have the EP, Warning, Rage, Mindcrime, Empire and Mindcrime II (suckered me in one last time).

It's certainly heavier than Empire, but twice as inaccessible - I'd go for it.

OK, popped the proverbial cherry with this album. At first glance, Scott's drumming is the only thing that sticks to the wall. I hear snippets of what they did on pretty much every previous album. Some more than others. I dig "Bridge" and "Someone Else?" more than the other tunes. Gonna go with "Someone Else?"

I haven't listened to this album in ages. I'm going to give it a spin before I vote.

Yeah, if that had been on the album then it would definitely have been a contender. Someone Else? is a great closer, but I agree that the full band version is better, especially as they cut out some of the lyrics for the album version. But in the end, I'm going for One More Time.
