Damaged and Anybody Listening?
That's it..


Sure I could've picked a couple more Empire tracks, but they don't sniff the jock of the 80's songs I picked.

And when it comes to HITNF, I'd take
Hit The Black and Anytime Anywhere.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums................or WTF.  ;D

From that list, I went with:
Damaged
Best I Can
You
Right Side of My Mind
Liquid Sky
Anybody Listening?
spOOL

Altho as I said in the 80s thread, I'd put One and Only or Disconnected in there too in place of Best I Can.
 
 
And when it comes to HITNF, I'd take
Hit The Black and Anytime Anywhere.
You wouldn't choose spOOL? That's the most classic QR sounding track on HitNF.
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

sp00L, Real World, Damaged, Anybody Listening?, Jet City Woman, Lady Jane, Bridge. This reminds me I haven't yet listened to any song from Q2K

I also like The Voice Inside from HiNTF. I know it's not a Queensryche sounding song, but... Can't help it
EDIT: Crap, I forgot to mark Damaged. From now on it has a +1 vote

Most of Empire basically:

Empire
Damaged
Best I Can
Bridge
Jet City Woman
Silent Lucidity
Rainy Night

First one left out, Sign of the Times
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

Every single one of these polls has at least one track missing from it that has me wondering why, but missing One More Time off this list is a total howler.

Off topic but with a purpouse: since there are so many of these polls where we're asked to pick a specific number of favorites, I wouldn't mind some more polls but setlist-oriented.

Like, "Make a setlist for X band", but there should be some limits, for example:
- No more than XX songs
- You have to represent at least X number of albums
- This song has to be there 'cause it's a classic
- It's the anniversary of this album, honor it by putting at least half the album in the set

Stuff like that, I wouldn't mind this kind of challenge, either for DT or any other of the more famous band we discuss  :D

I knew this would be easy.  I picked:

Damaged
I Am I
Best I can
Anybody Listening?
Another Rainy Night

I would have picked Resistance if it had been an option and maybe also Hand on Heart.  QR flashed brilliantly in the 80s but then went into drain-circling mode quite rapidly.  Empire (i.e., adult contemporary Queensryche) is vastly overrated (particularly Silent Luicidity) -- especially in comparison to Mindcrime.  I listened to Promised Land earlier this week (for the first time in a long time).  It started out so promisingly, but the second half is pretty bleh.

All of mine are from Empire and Promised Land, but it was hard to leave off some others, like sp00l, Right Side, Reach, and My Global Mind (yeah, I know that last one is from PL too).  They just missed the cut.

I had to include Silent Lucidity in my top 7.  Despite it really falling out of favor due to being so overplayed and over-listened-to, I can still step back from that and appreciate what a fantastic song it is.

True, but it still blows! ;D

Seriously, we are lowering the bar to think very highly of spOOL.

Bullshit. It is a fantastic song and one of QR's best.

When Scotty questioned me, I had to listen to it when I got home today because I honestly couldn't remember it.

It does have some classic elements if you happen to consider Promised Land classic, but I don't think spOOL is strong enough to even make Empire.

If by that, you mean it is in the top 3 songs on a top 4 Tate-era album, I agree with you wholeheartedly.  But you have a strange way of expressing yourself, because I had to REALLY read between the lines to catch your true meaning.

spOOL is a good song, and definitely one of the few keepers on a mediocre record, but it doesn't touch most of the songs from the previous five records.

Every single one of these polls has at least one track missing from it that has me wondering why, but missing One More Time off this list is a total howler.

I love that song, so it did break my heart a little to leave it off.
