iTunes Editors’ Notes

Queensryche aren’t the first to come to mind when considering bands likely to record an album of covers. Their high-concept art-metal never showed a lighter, playful side. In essence, though their eclecticism is refreshing and surprising, this is still a very serious, methodical group who approach their reinterpretations with the same fine attention to detail that their fellow contemporaries Def Leppard applied to their album of covers, 2006’s Yeah!. A live version of U2’s “Bullet the Blue Sky” is a ten minute runaway train of guitar fireworks and rhythmic sophistication that transforms U2’s tune into a heavy metal anthem and leaves the original sounding rather subtle and slightly barren. Elsewhere, the band works less radically. Pink Floyd’s “Welcome to the Machine” and Black Sabbath’s “Neon Nights” fit comfortably within the group’s sound. The political fire of Buffalo Springfield’s “For What It’s Worth” and Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young’s “Almost Cut My Hair” click naturally with the band’s own rebel stance against faceless national oppression. And their cover of the Police’s “Synchronicity II” simply rocks.  File under pleasant surprises. 

Customer Reviews

Best Covers Album... and its QUEENSRYCHE!

I read a interview with Geoff Tate and he said that they were not trying to beat or top the originals, but put a "Ryche" spin on old classics.. These songs are great and some I just was not expecting.. Good Job Guy's!!!!

Absolutely Horrible. Tates vocals are so flat.

Absolutely Horrible. Tates vocals are so flat in Innuendo. And on most of the other tracks it sounds like he recorded this album while nursing a cold? Everything is nasal and forced sounding. I used to love this band - I wore out Mindcrime 3 times. But this was a bad idea, and if this is the best Tate has in the vocal department anymore, they should hang it up. Or learn to use Pro Tools pitch correction.

Great job guys!!!

This is a great album, great songs, I like Synchronicity II. The lyrics on the song are amazing. If you think im right please click yessss. =D

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Although they were initially grouped with the legions of pop-metal bands that dominated the American heavy metal scene of the '80s, Queensrÿche were one of the most distinctive bands of the era. Where their contemporaries built on the legacy of Van Halen, Aerosmith, and Kiss, Queensrÿche constructed a progressive form of heavy metal that drew equally from the guitar pyrotechnics of post-Van Halen metal and '70s art rock, most notably Pink Floyd and Queen. After releasing a handful of ignored albums,...
