Nope, sorry.


Sounds like Bowling For Soup's "1989" to me. Posted because the band is from Maryland and some people like this modern stuff.


Don't like it either.

Dudes. Dudes, dudes... dudes.


I've actually never made it through a full GC album, but for whatever reason I elected to give the new one a go. I hadn't heard this song yet (thankfully, as it is most likely the weakest song on the album) but seriously dudes, these guys have a genuinely good album on their hands with this new one. Really good full rock production without the pop leanings I expect from these guys.


The album is a completely commercial modern rock album... the kind that has sunk many other bands that seemed to be going just fine before they elected to do so, but it's good. Some of the lyrics are definitely questionable, but seriously dudes, give this album a proper go. I was pleasantly surprised.

If anyone bothered to give that last album a go, they've actually followed it up with another very "commercial" rock album. It's called 'Generation Rx' and it's only 8 songs (9 minus the intro). Bit mopey, but I do like this song;

    • The vocals really do not suit this track.
    • Thanks mate. You're spot on about DeGarmo.
    • Stephen Pearcy - View to a Thrill   And then... Core Leoni - The Greatest Hits Part 1   
    • Seems to mainly stem from finanacial issues and from what can be read into it, the other members probably felt like Tate had TOO MUCH control over what the band was doing both musically and financially (especially with several of his family members involved with band operations); everything just finally boiled over. Here's an interview with Geoff Tate from June 2012 giving his side of things: https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/qa-geoff-tate-on-queensryches-ugly-split-backstage-brawl-in-brazil-102316/   And then here's the other side from the other members: https://ultimateclassicrock.com/remaining-queensryche-members-accuse-geoff-tate-of-financial-wrongdoing-violence/   DeGarmo leaving in 1998 was the beginning of the end musically (IMO anyway) as the releases after that became darker and way less melodic, with only the occasional  exception (song wise).   I know alot of people really like the band now, with LaTorre on vocals, and the recent releases, but it's all I can do to get through them. The muscianship is top notch, the vocals are great, but there's just something missing... the songs just aren't memorable to me. I've listened to The Verdict on and off for the last week, and can't remember a single chorus. The only reason I picked The Verdict in this poll is because The New Reality by Tate's Operation: Mindcrime is DREADFUL.   At least on the releases prior to that one, you could count on 2-3 decent songs on a Tate release, and his stuff is definitely more melodic than what Ryche has been doing... to my ears at least.               
    • Since Q2K I haven't really given many spins to either party. From what I have heard though, I think the output from Queensryche has been better. Although, they were only able to achieve this by getting a Geoff Tate emulator (Todd La Torre was an inspired choice BTW). I'm sure it's very complicated, but does anyone know in a nutshell, what caused the falling out in the first place? Such a shame when you have these rifts among long term successful bands. It seems to be pretty common though. Money and Ego are the two main factors, I'm sure. 
    • Undrask - Battle Through Time Rockett Love - Grab The Rocket
    • Nice, two albums that were in need of reissues, in my opinion.   One with Rob Rock and the other with Jerome Mazza on vocals
