Just listened to the samples. You know, it's not good. But it's catchy at least. Last couple albums weren't good or catchy!

"Got it Bad" sounds like a reall winner. And by "winner" I mean worst QR song ever!

I think they meant to name that for those who waste money on buying it so once they get it they can say

Q: anyone buy the Queensryche CD, how is it?
A: Yes I did , "I got it...bad"

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
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol

My brother said to me the other day, "Did you know that Queensryche is coming to town this summer?"  He knows I am a big fan of their early stuff and figured I'd go see them.  He figured wrong. :biggrin:

I would do the same if I were you. I'm a huge fan of the old stuff but there's no way in hell they can put a decent performance and do them justice now so why even bother.

I've been a huge fan ever since 1990, and it looks like this new album will be the first one I don't purchase. I was absolutely horrified with the clips I saw of their Caberet tour, and a huge majority of the album samples were just godawful. Got It Bad, Get Started, and Wot We Do were probably the worst offenders.  I liked Operation Mindcrime II a lot and I thought American Soldier had a few really strong songs, but it looks like Dedicated to Chaos will be the last straw for the remaining fans. I can't see them recovering after this debacle unless Tate takes a couple years off and regains his vocal abilities AND Chris Degarmo returns full-time.

Just listened to the clips. Not good! Not good at all!

I had high hopes for this record since the last two studio albums seemed to have them returning to form. Oh well. DT11 September.

Is there a metal band that has consistently let down the fans and released more shit albums in a row than Queensryche? Besides Metallica? I literally can't think of a band that has gone "down the tubes" quite like Queensryche has. Oh well, we always have the first 5 albums...

I really like HIYNF so I'll say 7.  I do like Tribe.  I think Jeff was the cog that really made this band.

After listening to half the samples, I must say, this seems very disappointing, and I'm a optimistic Queensryche fan.  A big step down from American Soldier by the sounds of it, which I actually quite enjoyed.
Everyone else, except Wolfking is wrong.

It's disappointing, because American Soldier was a really good record IMO.  Some great songs and a good concept, and as you said a step in the right direction.

For anyone who is interested, Slater is answering questions about his work on the new album and his involvement with Queensryche in general.

Speaking of QR, what happened to Samsara?  Reading through this thread, it occurred to me that I haven't seen him post in a while, and sure enough, when I looked at his profile, his last post was in early March.

I bought and listened to AS, my first and so far only QR I have bought. It seems it was a good decision now, if they were going in the "right direction". After what I've read about the new album and the Cabaretcrap (havent listened to the samples yet) I'm not going to buy that album. Should I support their old albums and buy them? and hope they realise that those sells better then their new stuff, or just dont buy any album of them at all, to show that I dont like their current situation?

Rage For Order, Operation:Mindcrime, Empire, and Promised Land are essential purchases.

Listened to some of the samples;
They sound like they're doing a bad job of trying to emulate early 2000s alt-rock.

I am sick of the boring mid tempo stuff and the clips all sound like more of the same. HitNF/Q2K sounding all over again. I can hear some Empire elements, but ultimately, nothing to get me excited about.

Well, after listening to the clips about 10 times, I've changed my view entirely. First of all, these are only 20 second clips, so I'll save the ultimate judgement for the album. Secondly, after about the 5th listen I started to really dig this sound. I hear elements of various song styles they've done in the past, the obvious being Empire. And I remember when Empire came out, after O:M, upon first listen I hated it. But it grew on me with every listen until I loved it. Just these small clips have already had the same effect. Fascinating. I can already tell I'm going to like it much better than Hear In the Now, Q2K and Tribe. It's not the heavier, darker sound of O:M ll or AS which I love, but I'm now looking forward to this one.

Interesting views.  I hope I can say the same once I hear the album.  I will still buy it and give it a good go.  Reading your paragraph gives me some hope.

Geoff's voice just doesn't have that appealing tone it used to. Now I find it rather annoying and one-dimensional. And so is the material so not a good combo.

Thanks. The thing is...Queensryche are constantly reinventing their sound. That's one of the things i like about them. It's nothing new for them. O:M -Rage for Order - Empire was the same. So I for one am really hopeful of this album. It's not AS, but Empire wasn't O"M or Rage For Order either. They've been doing this their whole career if we look back on it.

Totally, I also like them for that aspect, not one album sounds the same.  That's why I will still definitely buy this record and give it a good go.

I never had a problem with QR reinventing their sound until their re-invention became mediocre songs not even written in most part by the band.
