While listening to this reissue of the massive Queensryche album from the 1990 "Empire" it is hard to believe that almost 20 years has passed. The music still sounds relevant. It is easy to understand why it went platinum several times. There have not been many metal songs as well done as "Silent Lucidity". The killer guitar riffs, excellent production work and precision in the music are things you don't often see today and especially in this genre. Even in the recorded format you can hear the chemistry between the members of the band. As a bonus you get 10 live songs from the 1990 show in London at the Hammersmith Odeon, five postcards, a fold-out poster, and a booklet containing rare photos.
