Queensrÿche – Condition Hüman

queensryche_400

“Condition Hüman” is the second album with Todd La Torre fronting the revamped version of Queensrÿche, and he proves once more that they could not have chosen a better man for the job. He brings the spirit and energy back, something many fans have felt they’ve missed for quite some time.

And the task is also a lot easier, when the song material is so strong, which is the case on this album. Topping the brilliant self-titled album from 2013 is quite an achievement, but one they pull off with ease. This album is one of the best traditional heavy metal albums in a long, long time.

It catapults the freshness and pure energy of their early albums into the next millennium. Never forgetting their roots and sound, there’s references to their first 4 or 5 albums and it’s a pure joy to listen to this album, over and over… from the opening twin guitar riff to the last seconds of the epic title track, it’s an album that oozes of greatness.

Queensrÿche is back, strong and very much alive. “Condition Hüman” is a tribute to their legacy and to heavy metal in general, and an album metal fans around the world will cherish and love…

Brilliant!

When I kicked this site off back in 2003, I had no idea that it would turn into what it has become. I am very proud of what we've done and achieved over the years. Musically I have a soft spot for 80s inspired hard rock, but my favourite music and bands are all to be found in the progressive universe these days.
