Bands always do this... and it's lame.

Mindcrime 2 is still pretty alright by me. The only albums with almost no redeeming features are American Soldier and HITNF.

But yeah, the best post-Empire album IMO is Promised Land (fuck yeah), and that's barely any metal at all.

This.

I'm sure it's more overhype, and, just like every other Queensryche record in the past ten years, when it comes out, a whole bunch of fanboys will cry "no really guys, this one is good!" - and then the average person will listen to it and find themself overcome with the same underwhelmingness and disappointment as every Queensryche album post-Promised Land.

Although to be fair this "average" person has probably been equally underwhelmed by most of Maiden's post 80s output/lots of bands later works

Actually, on Queensryche's forum, most members don't like what they've done in the last 10 years. Even Samsara, who owns and runs the forum, complains a lot.

Dude, that's not Queensryche's forum - that's a "fan" forum. Samsara is a completely jaded dude who basically gets his jollies by railing against the band to a choir that preaches it right back at him, because if you disagree you will NOT last long over there (thus why "most members" don't like what Queensryche's done in the last 10 years.)

(I used to be a moderator there.)

That is not Queensryche's forum. It is just a fan forum run by some guy who likes to complain. A lot.

Yeah. I was for quite awhile during the Mindcrime II era, but I just couldn't handle the tone over there. They basically clamp down on anybody not agreeing with their consensus in all sorts of crazy ways...

The reason I was kicked out is because I outed his wife (who at the time wasn't identified as such, but basically agreed with all his posts so he could go, "See!") Other people he's banned include his college roommate (among other friends)

You really can't get a more distorted view of Queensryche "fans" than you can from The Breakdown Room.
