Although I'm certainly open to the band's ever-evolving sound and change in direction, I can't help but feel that they've lost a bit of their inspiration along the way.
The vast majority of Dedicated to Chaos consists of generic riffs and surprisingly uninspired vocal performances from Geoff Tate - a bit shocking when considering what a powerful and I Take You - Queensryche* - Dedicated To Chaos (CD vocalist he can be.
There really are only a few songs on this album that are decent "Around the World", "Hard Times", and "Big Noize" come to mindand even they aren't great or anything.
Dedicated to Chaos also sports some of the band's most horrendous lyrics to date - just take one listen to "Hot Spot Junkie" and you'll catch my drift. How could this be the same band that previously wrote genius concept albums with stories that compete with the best ever written?
One annoying feature about Dedicated to Chaos is the horrible-sounding production. The mix sounds just terrible to these ears, with everything particularly the drums and bass mixed so loud to the point that it lacks emotion.
Guitar parts are nearly inaudible at times, and the vocals are mixed too high as well. Giving already generic music an uninspired and generic production is not a plus in my book. Dedicated to Chaos is not a successful album from almost every aspect. It will take a real boost of inspiration to recover from this disaster.
I hate to do this to one of my once-favorite bands, but the most I can give out here is 1. If not for the few decent tracks, you could easily subtract that extra half-star.

London Rocks. The topic of the album is all over the place. There's a lot of different subjects we tackle.

Music these days, outside of hard rock and metal, is really rhythm-oriented. There's a lot of movement to it. So we're kind of going with that as a feature on this record.

We're using the guitars in a more melodic sense.

About the sessions for Dedicated to Chaosguitarist Parker Lundgren recalls that "[p]reviously, it almost felt like there was a battle between what songs to use, mainly the producers. It was almost like they wanted to cut the band out of it, even being a part of the process. That's how I felt.
There were songs that ended up on the record that I never even heard. The record comes out and I'm like, 'I never heard that song when we were in the studio.
