Thom Jurek of Allmusic was mixed in his verdict, praising songs such as "Cold" for having "an enormous Locicero riff that recalls the band's glory days", describing the songs "Life Without You", "Fallen", and "The Weight of the World" as "well-crafted prog metal tunes" and "Slave" and "Running Backwards" as "killer rockers Sputnikmusic staff writer Trey Spencer disagrees with Jurek, stating: " Frequency Unknown is not heavy or progressive, and it actually sounds less like a Queensryche album than Dedicated to Chaos.
Frequency Unknown definitely proves a few things, but none of them are positive. It proves that Geoff is willing to rush a subpar product to his fans, and that his separation from the rest of the band was for the best. A more supportive review for the album was provided by Lou Vickers from Ultimate Guitar Archivewho said of the change in sound: "This dramatic change in sound is an upgrade from the mostly bland, pop-rock style showcased in such recent outings as Dedicated To Chaos and American Soldierbut for Sounds Good To Me - Morhotronic - Revolution (Cassette fans looking for a strong return to form, you should probably look elsewhere," because "although it is admittedly better than the past decade of Queensryche albums, [it] still falls a short.
It's actually pretty good. In fact, THIS is the kind of stuff he should have been releasing as solo material all along! Christa Titus from Billboard asserts that several songs "deserve praise for their melodies and journey-like pace, but Album) on Frequency Unknown sounds like the finely crafted rock he designed with his former bandmates. InCleopatra Records released a deluxe edition that includes the original album plus the first ten tracks remixed by Billy Sherwood.

More than one month prior to its release, DJ John Peel broadcast the album on BBC radio 1 from an advance copy on a cassette, from the beginning to end, with no interruptions. The Scream was released on 13 November It was an almost instant commercial success, peaking at No. The new edition featured a remastered version of the album on the first disc, while the second disc contained demo and live tracks together with the singles from that period.
A single-disc edition of the reissue was released in In Novembera vinyl picture disc edition was released, mastered from the original tapes by Kevin Metcalfe. The Scream was named "the best debut album of the year" by Sounds. It's a This is music of such strength and vision that you just can't not be moved by the time they swing into the final climactic passage of 'Switch', the closing track.
Sweeting then noted that the musicians "have perfected a group sound which is powerful but streamlined", adding that "the words and music combine to produce coolly dazzling images". Several journalists from NME also praised the record. Nick Kent first stated that the band sounded "like some unique hybrid of the Velvet Underground mated with much of the ingenuity of Tago Mago -era Can. Certainly, the traditional three-piece sound has never been used in a more unorthodox fashion with such stunning results.
It is not, as some would say, chaotic — it is controlled. Each instrument operates within its own space, its own time, as if mocking the lines of other instruments. Known rock is inverted, leaving just traces of mimickry of rock's cliches — satire that often bursts with glorious justification into shaking celebration as on "Helter Skelter".
It is easy to gain attention by doing something which is crudely obviously out of the ordinary, but the Banshees have avoided such futile superficialities: it is innovation, not revolution, not a destruction but new building.
It has grown out of rock — Velvets, Station to StationBolan. And Siouxsie's staggering voice is dropped, clipped, snapped prominently above this audacious musical drama, emphasizing the dark colours and empty, naked moods. However, in her review of the album, NME' s Julie Burchill was unimpressed, stating that the Banshees sound was "a self-important threshing machine thrashing all stringed instruments down onto the same low level alongside that draggy sub-voice as it attempts futile eagle and dove swoops around the mono-beat.
Their sound is certainly different from the normal guitar-bass-drums-voice consequence. Kurt Loder gave a very favourable review in Rolling Stoneremarking that The Scream was a "striking debut album"; and that its "sound, stark though fully realized thanks partly to a most simpatico co-producer, Steve Lillywhiteis lent added intellectual dimension by a series of disturbingly ambiguous lyrical images".
During a BBC radio show, David Bowie mentioned a concert of the group given after their release of their first album: "I saw you Siouxsie and you were really excellent [ Record Mirror 's Ronnie Gurr wrote that " The Screama masterpiece that, for six months, I failed to recognise as such, was a harrowing listening experience. NME rated it at No.
The Scream placed the group among the pioneers of post-punkas peer Robert Smith of the Cure contended:. It was like the forerunner of the Joy Division sound. It was just big-sounding. The Scream has been influential on a large number of genres and artists. The guy's been ripped off so much, he started that flanged chord thing ". That's a reason why I made music". I loved the way they turned these suburban things into nightmares--that was a great influence on early Soft Cell stuff".
