The new album from Strangeways 'Perect World' is finally arriving October 15th. Even though there have been 3 official Strangeways albums since the brilliant 'Walk In The Fire', non really touched on the Melodic rock brilliance of the first 3 albums, so I cannot wait to finally hear all of this, in all it's glory. Set your diaries now.

Terry Brock, Ian Stewart and David 'Munch' Moore from before, plus a new Bass player.

Yeah from what I hear its supposed to be a laid back affair.

 

Still be interested to see what they come up with.

 

I'd be amazed if its better than Terry's solo album 'Diamond Blue' which really is a corker.

Laid back is not always a bad thing in my books. Soundbytes sound ok to me, so looking forward to the whole thing

Backed mate. From what Ive heard the balance sounds a bit odd with just 2 rockers and 7 ballads, but judging by some of the past Brock ballads this doesnt really concern me.

 

New Strangeways in 2010 is something I never thought I would hear!

Straight off the bat I don't like the ratio of ballads to rockers if what is written above is correct, but as Glen says, that disc with Slamer is awesome, the new Giant CD really ain't bad at all and he's done well in the past, so I'll give this a go.

This was touted as a more return to the 'classic' Strangeways sound than the previous 3 albums, but it turns out, bar a couple of songs, this pretty much follows a similar path to 'And The Horse', Anyday Now' and Gravitational Pull'. Now! this is not necessarily a bad thing, as all of those albums had some good songs on them,(but certainly not in the Strangeways style of old) so to describe the new one is a continuation from 'Walk In The Fire' is way off the mark and is going to piss off quite a few people who have never heard their later stuff. If you liked the last 3 albums, then you will find lots stuff on 'Perfect World' to your liking, if you didn't, then I can hear all the slatings coming now.

Yeah, this surely won't rate well this year. As I said in the 'first spins' thread I have no real problem with it. It's not bad, but it's just average. It never really takes off, or really goes anywhere. A few nice enough tunes but compared to Brock's solo album or even the Giant CD from this year... imo it is the weakest of the three.

I haven't heard anything since "Walk in the Fire" so will skip this one completely after these comments...

You may like a couple of songs, but you may well be advised to steer clear if you haven't heard the later stuff. Personally, I quite like some of it, but I have to be in the right mood for it. Saying that, I haven't played the previous 3 for at least a year or more.

    • Forgot to mention this here, but last month I was officially declared as in remission.
    • Hope he makes a full recovery. If it was me, I would change next years tour name to Operation Heartcrime.
    • Former QUEENSRŸCHE Singer GEOFF TATE Underwent Aortic Valve Replacement December 6, 2022   May contain affiliate links   Former QUEENSRŸCHE singer Geoff Tate has revealed that he underwent an aortic valve replacement this past summer. According to NHS, an aortic valve replacement is a type of open-heart surgery used to treat problems with the heart's aortic valve.   The aortic valve controls the flow of blood out from the heart to the rest of the body. An aortic valve replacement involves removing a faulty or damaged valve and replacing it with a new valve made from synthetic materials or animal tissue.   The 63-year-old musician discussed his health in a new interview with Beneath A Desert Sky. Asked how he is feeling, nearly five months after his operation, Tate said: "I feel really good overall. This might be the first time I'm telling someone in the press what I went to the hospital for. I had a procedure done called an aortic valve replacement in my heart. Long story short, I was feeling very fatigued one day while on tour. It was challenging for me to climb stairs. Anyway, I thought it best to get checked out, and after several tests from my doctor, he indicated that this particular type of surgery needed to be done. I'd say it took around a month [after the surgery] before I started feeling better. Honestly, I could barely walk after it, and I couldn't sing at all. Before this, I'd never been in a hospital in my life."   He added: "I can't say that I'm feeling '100 percent' better, so to speak. However, I'm definitely feeling a lot better now than I was over the summer. Just taking it a day at a time and am grateful to get back on the road." On July 3, Tate took to his Facebook page to share a photo of him with Dr. Sami Kueri from the department of cardiovascular surgery at the Universitäts-Herzzentrum Freiburg-Bad Krozingen (University Heart Center Freiburg) in Bad Krozingen, Germany, and he included the following message: "All my gratitude to the talented Dr. Sami Kueri for giving me a healthy heart!! Feeling so much better each day!" In June, Tate said that he would take a few months off the road as he recovered from a medical procedure.   On June 13, Geoff, who fronted QUEENSRŸCHE for 30 years — from the band's inception through 2012 — took to his social media to write: "I am having a medical procedure and my health professionals want me to recover over the Summer. I will be back and rocking South America in January. Looking forward to seeing everyone on the road." Tate's recent tour celebrated the 30th anniversary of QUEENSRŸCHE's "Empire" and "Rage For Order" albums. In April 2014, Tate and QUEENSRŸCHE announced that a settlement had been reached after a nearly two-year legal battle where the singer sued over the rights to the QUEENSRŸCHE name after being fired in 2012. Fellow original QUEENSRŸCHE members Michael Wilton (guitar),Scott Rockenfield (drums) and Eddie Jackson (bass) responded with a countersuit. The settlement included an agreement that Wilton, Rockenfield and Jackson would continue as QUEENSRŸCHE, while Tate would have the sole right to perform the albums "Operation: Mindcrime" and "Operation: Mindcrime II" in their entirety live.   Tate was replaced in QUEENSRŸCHE by former CRIMSON GLORY singer Todd La Torre. Geoff will embark on a tour in 2023 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of "Operation: Mindcrime".
