Kind of disappointed with Silent Lucidity, at least from a guitar player standpoint. I like a bit of challenge with all my songs I suppose. From a singer standpoint though it's a good song. But not if they didn't include the high note at the end.
Eyes of a Stranger or Jet City Woman would have been better, I would have really preferred the former over anything though.
But, as with Pantera (at least with Phil singing)*..I think Queensryche's best stuff was on their self titled first album. Not so much the instrument work as much as the singing....Geoff was at his high point on that album. You might think Operation: Mindcrime was his best vocally but you should go listen to what he does on their self titled album.
I do think he kept most of that goodness up to Empire though.
* Pantera's first album where Phil was singing was Power Metal and I tend to think it's some of their best work. Vocal wise, Phil was hitting crazy notes that he only used sparingly in the future..and the guitar work was downright insane.
More involved, on Windows you can go to All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Character Map, and find it there and copypaste.
Or, hold down alt and type 0255 on the numberpad.
Queensr˙che is foiled by their chosen umlaut actually existing. Spın̈al Tap doesn't have this problem because the röck döts they use don't even exist in most standard character sets.
(see, these forums don't even support the n with döts)

I just tried the song finder with an exact cut-and-paste match ("Queensr˙che") and nothing came up. I think it might be related that the umaluts are done with ascii and searches don't like ascii. Try searching by song title. It's not as convenient, but it does work every time.
Honestly, Silent Lucidity was a "dark horse" to me. I actually expected "Jet City Woman" instead when I saw the announcement. It seriously feels like the knocked-out contender for final song, like an honorable mention that didn't quite fit into the final pack. It is good to finally see some Queensr˙che, though I wish there could be more. Maybe we'll get lucky on RB4...
