QUEENSRYCHE Take Cover Rhino (2007)


Queensryche take a turn at producing a covers album and they come out with mixed results. The main problem is the vocals of Geoff Tate which sound very weak on some songs but this maybe down to the mix on the album. Also at times his voice sounds as through it has been electronically mixed.

Hats off to the band for tackling such a diverse set of songs, from the operatic 'Odissea' through to the cracking version of Pink Floyd's 'Welcome To The Machine'. Geoff Tate does a sterling version of 'Heaven On Their Minds' from the musical 'Jesus Christ Superstar', which sounds very heavy when the Queensryche guitarists Michael Wilton and Mike Stone get their hands on it!

'Neon Knights' is a barnstormer as well - nice and heavy. But from a personal point of view their version of Queen's 'Innuendo' is poor - the guitars sound all over the place and the vocals lack any real punch.

Definitely of interest to Queensryche fans and they pull off most songs with ease, adding their own Queensryche styling here and there.
