  1. “the most metal and the most progressive record we have made in a long time”

    Translation: We’ll try fan service and fail.

    I’ve never listened to any Queensryche post-Promised Land, with the exception of the Operation: Mindcrime sequel once years ago in high school which iirc was the aural equivalent of liquid diarrhea. I’m assuming I haven’t missed out on anything.

    “The Cringe will join the bill on select dates.”

  4. So they got rid of fat alcoholic Geoff Tate so they could “make the music they really want to make”, and… they spend the last two albums doing pretty ‘lite’ grandpa rock. Huh???? Are they going to try to do something at least a little bit ambitious this time?

      Fat, alcoholic, and do not of be forgotten also allegedly “African American from the waste down”!!!!!
