Overview

These days it seems as if everyone wants to get back to basics, what with all the "unplugged" albums and back-to-the-roots stylings. So it's kinda refreshing to hear a salvo from one of the proudest exponents of bigger-is-better. For most of their decade and a half together, Queensryche have waved the banner of prog-metal in all its glory, constructing concept albums rife with dizzyingly complex tales of glamour and distress -- a goodly portion of which are excerpted on this jam-packed hits collection. All of the band's best-known material is here, from the eerie-but-catchy "Silent Lucidity" to the steely "Empire," as is ample evidence of Geoff Tate's unique brand of lovesick futurism ("I Don't Believe in Love" and "Jet City Woman"). While all 14 of the previously issued tracks have been digitally remastered -- which makes a notable difference on older material such as "Queen of the Reich" -- diehards will be most interested in a pair of hard-to-find items, including "Chasing Blue Sky," which was previously only available on the Japanese version of Hear in the Now Frontier.
