All right, let's bite this in the butt; I am not a Queensryche fan, in fact this was the first Queensryche album I had listened to in full (though I have since listened to more). From the first time I heard the song "Redemption" I was very excited for this album as a metal head. Obviously this is a very hyped album with a lot of expectations riding on its shoulders and basically the reputation of the name Queensryche what with Geoff Tate's Frequency Unknown being a gigantic flop; the obvious questions are going to be, "how does it meet these standards and how does it compare to the last 20 years of garbage that this band has been pumping out?"

Yep, I found that official video shortly after I made that post, and made a post in the news section. But it hasn't been put up yet.

Rating: 8 And just like that, Tate has officially been sent to his grave. Very strong album, "Open Road" alone blows anything from the past 16 years out of the water.

Agreed. Just listened: the first decent Rÿche album in nearly twenty years and Geoff Tate is nowhere to be seen! Fair to say I'm surprised by how much I liked it actually.

Although I think that song could really have done with a more expansive arrangement, even as it is, it towers over 95% of the material released since "Promised Land". A couple of the songs definitely should have been longer, with "Don't Look Back" in particular sounding as if it's unfinished. Overall, there is a lot to enjoy on the new album, and most importantly, the album actually sounds like Queensryche, which is something that couldn't be said for the vast majority of the post-Promised Land material. Another plus is the album sounds fantastic. Which is a rare thing these days when it comes to modern production on hard rock/metal albums.

Stylewise, I'd put this album somewhere between "Empire" and "Promised Land". It's not as overtly ambitious as the latter, but is not as radio friendly as the former. It sits nicely between those two albums, though I can't help thinking that Chris DeGarmo's involvement could have elevated this album to truly classic status. But still, after the huge amount of rubbish that has been released under the Queensryche name over the last few years, this album is like a breath of fresh air. It's good to have the boys back, and they really found a gem in Todd La Torre. At times he sounds very like Geoff, which is a good thing, but he brings just enough of his own style to the table to give the band a fresh sound.

I agree, this album isn't perfect or "classic" by any means, but it's still a very solid work for what it is and I think it's a great return to form. Todd sounds awesome on this album (even though I think the effects make his voice sound artificial at points, the talent still seeps through very well). While "Open Road" is one of my favorites, I definitely think it should have been expanded upon (along with many of the other songs, since i wanna hear more!!), but It's still a song of the year contender for me as it is. Chris De Garmo's involvement would have probably made this return even greater, but as long as the band continues making music like this again, I'll be fine with that as well.

The more I listen to the album, the more I like it, although "Don't Look Back" still frustrates the hell out of me! "Open Road" is a great song, no two ways about it, but it could have been made into something very special, which it falls just short of being. But just hearing the band making majestic music like that again, makes me very pleased and proud to be a Queensryche fan once more.

I had stuck with the band through their many years of mediocrity since the late 90's, but "Dedicated To Chaos" really was the straw that broke the camel's back for me. As far as I was concerned, the band was dead in the water, and I'd have been very happy if they had called it a day after that album. However, it is very clear that Geoff was the one holding them back all these years, and excising him from the band has allowed them to rise from the ashes, and start the process of restoring the Queensryche name to it's former glory. I do think Chris being involved could have made this album a classic, but I still find a lot to enjoy in the album. Two songs which have really grown on me over repeated listens are "Spore" and "A World Without". Listening to the album on headphones helped those songs to really come into their own for me. I love the eastern tinges in the former song, whilst the latter reminds me very much of Operation Mindcrime due to Pamela Moore's vocals and it's eerie atmosphere.

  Better than I expected. Good production, good lyrics, very good vocals and real progressive heavy metal sound on the most of the tracks. It was nice to hear and sound of violin in some of the tracks. My favorite tracks are Redemption, Vindication, Don't Look Back, Fallout and Open Road. Finally, very good album after many, many years from this band.

Marcel Hubregtse - 02.07.2013 at 14:46  
Rating: 6 My first impression was a good one of this album. But after repeated listens I have to say it's just average. Biggest problem is that all the songs are just mid tempo (even though they had more up tempo tracks in the pre-production phase, as well) and Tod tries way to hard to sound like Tate. Tod should try to sound like himself then he won't sound as forced as he does now.

Rating: 2 I have to say that Queensryche has fallen off the cliff...Chris DeGarmo had to be the driving force in the song writing dept. I'm not sure why people think that either version of Queensryche is anything like the past. This new ryche album with Todd is way too wimpy, its more like a pop album to me. Its really not just Geoff losing it, the other members have lost it too. Very disappointed in this...terrible shit.

Rating: 9 Great album IMHO and I agree that this is their best album since Mindcrime. Hopefully the new lineup will continue to refine their sound and continue to churn out great music. Maybe DeGarmo may return, and, like Iron Maiden did, have 3 rhythm/ lead guitar players (never a bad thing).

Because deep inside of queensryche, they still can not live without Tate ! I am really interested to find out how Queensryche did it without amazing Tate's vocals !

Why a progressive metal band needs 3 guitars ? Are they a Spanish progressive metal band now ? I'm interested to find out.

  - This album is not progressive enough, sounds like a hard rock trying to be progressive ! Tate's Queensryche- Frequency Unknown (F.U) is obviously slinghtly better than Queensryche - Queensryche (the solos sucks!).
- Tate has taken away "the soul" of Queensryche, the soul refers to the "progressive elements of Queensryche" and his "jazzy bass vocals". Todd's vocals are not expressive as Tate, Todd is more mid-range vocals, i think glam metal and hard rock is more suitable for him.
Nicko's Nose - 09.07.2013 at 22:49  
Rating: 10 How the fuck was Tate the soul of the band? He only wrote the lyrics. How the fuck was he responsible for the progressive elements of Queensryche? He only wrote the lyrics. It's a good thing that they fired Tate, if he would have stayed in the band, "they" would've made another Dedicated To Chaos. DTC was beyond fucking terrible, but Tate thought it was good. If Tate would've stayed in the band, he would've have destroyed the band.

Todd's vocals are more metal than Tate's vocals. Saying his voice is more suitable for glam metal and hard rock is stupid.

Oh and Frequency Unknown is a piece of shit. Even less progressive than Queensryche's self titled album.
Lustful Maid - 10.07.2013 at 11:12  
  You're very emotional...you got personal feud with Tate ? Relax, everybody goes crazy sometimes, don't judge the album by his attitude. Both albums sucks, but Tate' s is better due to Tate's more expressive jazzy vocals.

Todd is currently miles better than Tate.

With all due respect, did you actually read the first half of Nicko's Nose's comment? If you didn't, let me repeat it for you: TATE ONLY WROTE THE LYRICS TO QUEENSRYCHE SONGS! (OK, some sources also say vocal melodies as well, but you really need the rest of the music to be written before you can write them with any confidence, so I'm not counting them.) How can he have been the soul of Queensryche if he didn't actually write a single song for them? Please provide me with an answer to that, I'm curious...

My thoughts on the album: it's lacking a real killer song, was mastered too loud (someone tell the Doctor never to master an album again...(if anyone doesn't get it, a guy named Tom Baker mastered this album)) and there were two or three tracks that could have done with some extra work, but I can't say I didn't like the album as a whole. I'd maybe give it a high 7, possibly pushing it up to an 8 if I was feeling generous.

The amazing part is a song needs to be interpreted by the vocalist to "complete" a song, just like different story-tellers could express a same story in different ways. That's why Tate gave the soul to Queensryche.

...While I don't think that's enough to call him the soul of Queensryche (via your argument, every single singer in every single band interprets the song, which seems very off when you throw in covers or other vocalists performing material as part of the band that wasn't written for their voice into the mix: surprisingly, I'm not thinking of Queensryche there, but Iced Earth), I'll concede you do have a point.

I think the best way to put it would be Tate just happened to be the right vocalist for the band when they were beginning their career and when they became big, just like Rob Halford for Judas Priest. The difference between the two bands when they replaced their iconic vocalists, however, is that Todd helped revive the band, who were pretty much a sinking ship at the time he joined (no offence intended if you like the post-Promised Land stuff, but I really don't like the stuff I've heard of it), while Tim (through no fault of his own, I might add: he has no song writing credits with Priest beyond a bonus track on Demolition) got onto a boat that was about to spring a leak, to take the metaphor a bit too far (same as with Iced Earth, funnily enough).

I honestly reckon Tim would have been much better accepted had Priest's first record with him been stronger, as I've listened to it a few times and find it doesn't have the spark that made stuff like Screaming For Vengeance and Painkiller (to name two of my favourite Priest albums) so great. Had the release been as strong as this album (as much as I find it too loudly mastered, I don't think there are any filler tracks on it and I enjoy listening to it all the way through, while Jugulator usually results in boredom), I suspect Tim might still be with Priest...

(Apologies about the delay with responding: I've been pretty busy over the last few days, so I've not really had the time to answer you properly.)

EDIT: Since I realised the way my comment regarding Tate and Rob helping the bands when they began their career and got big sounded, I'll stress that I'm not implying that the singers stopped becoming the great vocalists they did after they got big. I'm more pointing out that, at least now, they aren't capable of pulling off the material that made the bands so great. Tate's voice has seriously deteriorated over the years, as a listen to the re-recordings of Queensryche classics on Frequency Unknown will prove, to the extent that I actually think it would be better for Tate's career to not sing anything Queensryche wrote before (and including) Promised Land unless he changes the arrangement up to suit his current range (let's ignore my previous point that he can't write songs for a few seconds). But to do that would require Tate to acknowledge he can't do the material like he used to, which I don't believe he ever will do. Rob's voice has deteriorated as well, but he is at least aware of it and doesn't try to reach for do some of the note he did when he was in his thirties (let alone twenties), with the end result being that watching recordings of the Epitaph DVD is actually quite enjoyable, not painful (the only real exception is "Painkiller", but he's apparently struggled live with that one since they first performed it anyway, so I'll grant mercy there). If Tate did that, then I'd be willing to at least praise him for doing that, as he'd be making the most of what he had. But, by trying to doing the songs the way he used to, he's not showing how good his voice still is: he's actually showing how much his voice has deteriorated since the original recording came out. And that's more the point I was making: their voices have deteriorated since their heydays, but Rob is at least aware of it and not letting it ruin the songs.

Hope that cleared that up.

Tons of mumbling shit !

Their fates and vocal range are totally different though Rob and Tate are neck and neck.
Rob is god, performs in huge arena...Tate had been spending most of his time in small club for more than 15 years.
So...don't make unrealistic comparisons.

OK...how do Michael Kiske and Geoff Tate compare then?

As a quick note for you, performing in a club for two hours is still as vocally demanding as performing in an arena for two hours. At the end of the day, you're still singing for two hours. You don't need to sing louder in an arena just because it's a larger venue: it's the job of the sound engineer to make the sound suit the venue, not the band (unless a member of the band is also the sound engineer, but that's maybe getting a bit technical...). Many bands (and people not in the know) make this mistake at the start of their career and often just make the volume louder so they can hear themselves, rather than letting the sound person know. The end result of this is very similar to what you hear on very loudly mastered albums: a fatigue inducing sound that isn't as enjoyable to the listener as it would be if the volume was better handled. I know that and I've only been to two rock-related gigs (one was a Good Charlotte gig while the other was a Crashdiet gig: my sister's the Good Charlotte fan these days, although I don't dislike them now, since I spent a good amount of my early teenage years listening to their second album and I still think it's a good listen when I listen to it, despite my current tastes in music...)!

Also, Rob Halford left Judas Priest in 1992 and didn't return until 2003, during which time, to the best of my knowledge (which isn't a lot, considering I didn't hear about Judas Priest until 2011), he wasn't performing arena venues either.

(Make your response count: I'm very tempted to just start ignoring you.)

You're King of Deviation ! very much off topic.
In order to be polite, I still reply your question as follows :
Andi Deris (in) vs Michael Kiske (out)
Rob Hafford (in) vs Tim Owens (out)
Geoff Tate (in) vs Todd La Torre (out)

Not a law just a personal opinion, I did not try to force you to follow anything i have said...( I haven't got the black magic yet )
Only an Old Idiot Dog like you would take people's opinon(s) so seriously and misjudged it as a law !

OK...how do Michael Kiske and Geoff Tate compare then?...
As a quick note for you, performing in a club for two hours is still as vocally demanding as performing in an arena for two hours....
Also, Rob Halford left Judas Priest in 1992 and didn't return until 2003...

You're King of Deviation ! very much off topic.
In order to be polite, I still reply your question as follows :
Andi Deris (in) vs Michael Kiske (out)
Rob Hafford (in) vs Tim Owens (out)
Geoff Tate (in) vs Todd La Torre (out)

The results are :
1) Rob Hafford
2) Geoff Tate
3) Andi Deris
4) Tim Owens
5) Todd La Torre
6) Michael Kiske

How observant of you to notice I raise a lot of points there. You only answered one of them, though (and, even then, you didn't so much answer it as just list the vocalists in the order you prefer them, which isn't what I consider answering my question).

Answer every question put to you next time.

(And, because I can't be bothered to respond to you twice: yes, you do seem to treat your opinion as the law. I still remember your posts as mcm on the Dedicated To Chaos and Time I threads. Not once did you give the other side's point the slightest consideration when you answered them, preferring instead to insult them and avoid answering the questions directly. The point of responding to posts is to discuss your thoughts on the album being discussed in the thread, consider what the other side says if/when they respond, give a valuable discussion that isn't just treating the other side as a brain dead moron who you automatically are more intelligent than and, if you honestly do not believe you can give a valuable discussion, agree to disagree. It's in the rules of posting, so this isn't something the site put in recently: they've been there since I joined in 2011 and have possibly been around since the site was created. Go read them, then start following them. I'm not a mod, so I can't enforce them upon you, but, since Marcel is and he clearly remembers you...)

Why so serious ? Are we having debate in the parliament ? or fighting for the liberty and justice for the people...? Relax !
