It's good but sounds crap and a little contrived. It's like an average Queensryche tribute band has made badly produced album of reasonable songs. I was looking forward to both records equally, since the whole 'ryche vs 'ryche thing is dumb as fuck. Especially when taken to the childish levels fonz seems keen on. But now I'm just looking forward to eventually hearing Tate's one, because the other one, like or not the songs themselves, sounds like shit - which is a real shame because all of the songs except the single are actually pretty decent.

I can only assume they released that single to pre-lower everyone's expectations, because it's by far the worst song on the whole album.

Also, also, also, has anyone else noticed the riff from KoRn's 'Here To Stay' under the solo in 'Redemption'?

Both bands are playing crappier venues. Considering the QR guys claim GT has been rejecting their songs for 15 years, it's pretty amazing how uninspiring their new album is (not to mention how short!) And despite Jimbo Barton it does not sound like Promised Land, or anything else Barton has engineered for them. GT's FU album is pretty terrible and I'm pretty sure he knows it considering none of it has been played live. Oh, and both QR's are running on nostalgia as QR "Returns to History" and GT tours on Mindcrime yet again.

So... I don't think it's a pissing match, or if it is, then I think the only winner is the piss

Yerp. Frequency Unknown is pretty fricken bad though IMO.

I've only heard 'Cold' so far, and liked it a hell of a lot more than 'Redemption'.

Yeah, but it's the best song on FU. By. Far.

Can you please explain to me the point of his post and the point of bringing up those particular venues that QR is playing?

I will tell you the point of bringing those venues up.

They aren't venues.

It is fucking sad that one of the best and most important American metal bands of the late '80s is reduced to playing places where motorcycles are sold and, worse, a godforsaken patch of dirt where motorcycles are ridden. And you defending them for it is either some next-level theater of the bizarre, or you're fucking delusional. Guess which one I'm betting on.

They're playing one, single venue like this. So fucking what?

Two. Minimum. Haven't looked at their full itinerary. You defending them is so, so funny to me though that I can't stop trolling. I wish I felt bad.
