Reseña de álbum

Like Queensrÿche's 1988 prog metal masterpiece Operation: Mindcrime, Riot's Privilege of Power works off of fear, paranoia, and conspiracy, employing ten complex tracks that work as a single unit. Where Mindcrime stuck to a straight narrative, working every Pink Floyd-ism it could into its disillusioned protagonist, Power takes a broader, less specific approach to its subject. The atmospheric snippets that tuck-point each song into place help maintain a general air of unease, eventually giving way to an ambiguous but entertaining revolution that lacks Queensrÿche's self-importance. Lyrically, the group does little to deviate from obvious metaphor and "Viking" simplicity — in "metalspeak" something as mundane as an airplane ride ("Metal Soldiers") is described by shouting "We climb aboard the eagle made of steel" followed by a four-octave scream — but "true blue" fans of heavy metal know the genre's scholarly limitations, and revel in its face-value descriptions of rebellion and honor. The bizarre use of a horn section (keyboards?) on tracks like "On Your Knees" and "Killer" actually works, adding a swaggering charm to the already hook-laden tunes. The ferocious "Dance of Death" brings to mind classic Judas Priest and features brutal guitar work by guitarist/songwriter Mark Reale — he really is remarkable — and elements of Iron Maiden run rampant throughout the rousing "Storming the Gates of Hell." The record loses its flow — not its focus, as it never really has any — with the dreadful "Little Miss Death" — a study in "horned-hand" mediocrity — and the obvious single "Maryanne," which — although the vocals are outstanding and the slight melodic variation (mixed with car horns and other sonic oddities) is infectious — is virtually a carbon copy of Boston's "More Than a Feeling."
