If you like the wimpy Queensryche it's tolerable, but for me, no.

 

No I don't like Wimpy 'Ryche, I like the EP to Empire. :headbanger:

My fave is Rage, then Mindcrime, then Warning, then Empire....The EP rocks but it's too short. I always get depressed when it ends so I try not to spin it too often :blink:

'American Soldier' was only released here in the UK this week (6th April in some stores) so I am waiting for my copy to drop through the letterbox. I am sort of looking forward to hearing it as I usually do any Queensryche album (I have only heard 2 tracks so far), but not half as much as some other stuff in the pipeline I must admit.

I could be wrong but I believe it was just their demo and was released officially after 'Rage for Order' with that new bounus track. So I don't think it was intended to be an official release originally but I could be wrong.

I could be wrong too but I am pretty sure it was released prior to Rage.

The original 4 songs were released in 1983 and then the 'Prophecy' tune was recorded during the Rage sessions and the EP was reissued with the bonus track in 1988. :tumbsup:

You know what, and people can take the piss all they like here, I am on 3rd spin of this and I am quite enjoying some bits of it. Saying that, I did like some parts of 'Tribe', Q2K' & 'Hear In The Now Frontier', so maybe I am just a freak. ;)

I also liked many parts of Q2K, Tribe and Hear in the Now Frontier but now when I play those they just don't compare to those early releases. I think of the above mentioned cds Hear in the Now Frontier is probably my fav and then Q2K. As far as the new release goes I've heard it and didn't love it but I haven't bought it yet. I'm sure I'll get around to buying it eventually since I have all Queensryche studio albums but right now I'm not in a hurry. I will say I'm not a fan of the spoken word going on on the songs I heard.

I take every Queensryche disc on it own merit (or lack of in some cases). I really do agree with Shawn above, that virtually every album they have done is different to the next and some have worked better than others. With that being the case, you are always gonna have people siding with one release and not the next, as is the case with this one. I can see why people wouldn't particularly like 'American Soldier' and the last few releases, if they are hankering for the old days of 'Mindcrime' and 'Empire', but personally, because I do treat each one with maybe (and I mean maybe) a little more of an open mind than some other people, I might appreciate them a little more.

Not got into Tribe or Q2k yet but nothing wrong with Hear In The Now Frontier, I really like this one :tumbsup:

 

Not heard Op Mincrime 2 or the new one yet! :unsure:

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
