Retrieved April 27, Rage For Order was a different proposition altogether, and there is not a weak track to be heard, not to mention the stunning production, which gave it a sound they never dared repeat and which their peers could only hope to replicate.
This was the missing link between prime Judas Priest and the complex, prog-tinged hard rock of earlys Rush, an album both powerful and thoughtful, exhilarating and cerebral in equal measure.
Those who say Mindcrime is their overall magnum opus would meet no resistance from me, but I would say Rage For Order set them up perfectly for that timeless classic and should rightly stand as their second true masterpiece. Essential listening! Scott Ferguson: When this first came out, I knew at first listen that this was something special. It had a futuristic sound like no other before.
Nothing but love for it now. Adam Koster: One if the great albums, and I loved the look they went with at the time.
Screaming In Digital is still one of my favourite songs of all time. Such emotion in four minutes of music. Glenn McDonald: A real curates egg of an album.
To my mind, not only quite unlike anything else within their own catalogue, but almost unique within the metal canon. Is this metal's only steam-punk album? This sounded entirely divorced from what was going on around it within the genre, a million miles from the prevalent party metal, or emergent thrash metal scenes. Also, unlike Queensryche's two previous releases, it didn't seem to owe too much to the more established metal sound of Maiden or Priest either.
The band had found their own sound. And with no little help from producer Neil Kernon, who used seemingly every trick in the then current producers' handbook to make a record that could only have been birthed in the 80s, but which somehow didn't sound 80s.
In fact this still sounds technically advanced when listened to now, rather than teeth-grindingly dated, like a lot of other albums reliant on the production techniques of the era. The band and producer seemed to happen upon, or craft who knows? It was a sound they would refine to greater critical Mindcrime and commercial Empire effect on subsequent releases.
But in so doing they never again seemed so pioneering in breaking virgin ground within a heavily structured genre, or sounded so creatively fearless and inventive as they do here. Would Tool really sound like they do today, in all their neoteric magnificence, without the existence of Rage For Order? This is an excellent album and a must have for any good rock music collection.
Alan Mountain: At first play I was a little put off by this album, expecting a continuation of the sound from the EP and Warning.
But by god did it grow on me. Fates Warning played a good mix in their set and fans cheered them fully at the end of their show. Even though the fans thoroughly enjoyed Fates Warning , they all remembered this was the night for our hometown heros of heavy metal. The 24 show tour started in Orlando, FL on March 2nd then headed up the East Coast, down through the Midwest into Texas, across the Southwest then up the West Coast returning them safely home to Seattle one month later where fans, friends and family were eagerly awaiting.
