I've been a fan on and off since I was pretty young, when I found a copy of Operation: Livecrime somewhere on VHS. I got that maybe around the age of 9 or so. I liked it quite a bit, and as far as live stuff goes, this and KISS around the time of the Alive! tour were tops for me at that age. Then I got Rage For Order (I was a big fan of Walk in the Shadows and it's still my favorite song; The Whisper also isn't a bad song at all), and also liked Mindcrime quite a bit as well. Not sure what album or whatever I had that had The Lady Wore Black and Silent Lucidity on it, but those were also favorites. Then at some point, maybe 12 or thereabouts, I wasn't really into metal all that much for awhile until I grew out of punk because I wanted more difficult stuff to play on guitar around 15-16. Awhile after that, I eventually got back into Queensryche and got the box set. When I got more involved in writing, I admired Steve Clark of Def Leppard and Chris DeGarmo quite a bit for their abilities to stack chords and inversions of chords to get a fuller sound, though I've never really fooled around with that much myself. Anyways, listening to Rage for Order right now, and was curious if anyone is a fan of the band (mainly this era), and what albums/songs are your favorites and why. Just a side note: I don't care about Queensryche much, if at all, sans Chris DeGarmo, so the legal issues between Geoff and the rest of the band interest me none. Chris wrote most of the band's material when he was in the band, so without him, who cares.
