The albums of Queensryche in my order of preference.
Operation: Mindcrime II
Horrid beyond words. Their worst imo.
Dedicated to Chaos
Starts off well, but gets sucky by the 3rd song.
Album is rather dull and average. Best song: "Sacred Ground".
Easily inferior to previous releases, but still has decent moments (I haven't been able to hear all the songs). Best song: "The Great Divide"
Possibly the best album since HITNF. Decent, but not as strong as the band's earlier stuff. Best song: "Home Again".
Hear in the Now Frontier
Goes in a similar vein to Promised Land. Definitely not to the taste of their more conservative fans. Nevertheless, it's still rather decent. Best song: "Sign of the Times".
Their first watered-down album. It's still a strong offering, just not as astounding as it's predecessors. Best song: "I Am I".
As impressive as its 3 mighty successors. Best song: "Take Hold of the Flame".
Kickass album, some might say it's the band's last great one. Best song: "Empire".
Rage for Order
Easily one of the band's best works. Best song: "I Dream in Infrared"
IMO, their masterwork. A perfect album from beginning to end (though one could do without the storyline tracks). Best Song: "Eyes of a Stranger" (though they're all so good I can hardly decide).
