Operation : Mindcrime II, followed by Promised land. They are the only two I will ever listen to. Mindcrime II has like 7 songs I really, genuinely like - it's just that's only about half the album. It certainly was a step back in the right direction - it's just that when you're 100 miles from where you started, a few steps isn't gonna do all that much.

Voting American Soldier just to skew the results.

Tribe. No contest.

Voted Promised Land but there's a case to be made for Tribe for me too. They're very nearly tied.

No option for "None" ?

No option for "None" ?

Given that the question is "favourite of these albums", clearly "none" would be stupid. Even if you don't actually like any of them, "which one do you like best" is still a valid question and "none" isn't a valid answer.

Promised Land for me. They haven't done anything I think is worth a shit since then. AS was a cool idea and I thought some of the songs were good but it's not something I get the craving to hear at all.

I thought OMC2 was not needed at all as it was nothing more than an attempt to sell some albums and get people to know they were still alive by putting the OMC name on it. The first Mindcrime is so awesome there was no need for a follow up at all. Not even Dio being a special guest on OMC2 could save the album.

HITNF had some ok tunes but overall it had nothing special. Q2K is one of the biggest pieces of crap i've ever heard a great band do. Tribe did nothing for me either. Queensryche has really lost their way musically. They've been bad for so long that I don't think they're ever gonna come back from it. Honestly, there has never been a band that i've been more disappointed in when it comes to their releases over the last decade.

Promised Land is one of my favorite Ryche records, period. It's up there with the first 3.

I hope "first 3" means first three full-lengths so I don't have to kick you square in the balls.

Obviously! I wouldn't be so insane as to not place Mindcrime in my top 4 QR albums. :eyes: Heck, putting it at #2 would be a stretch. :tongue:

I think if O:M isn't in your top 2 Queensryche albums, a task force comes to your house and beats the living shit out of you.

I voted Promised Land, although I do sort of enjoy Hear in the Now Frontier, mainly because that was the first Queensryche Tour I saw, it was a nice size venue and they were excellent. The rest on the list, I don't even own, I do have Mindcrime II but don't really care for it, only played it once. American Soldier was decent live, they did the album suites last year, but I have a feeling on record the songs are probably watered down a lot more, the sound samples I heard were dissappointing.

Promised Land easily. None of the others even compare. Onevof their best releases with Operation Mindcrime and Rage for Order.
