Now I know your judgement is clouded.

I don't know if the judgment is clouded but it may be a case of wanting it to have the classic sound.

If I were to hear any of the three new songs I've heard so far and I wasn't told who it was, I would've never guessed Queensryche.

Out of all the reviews so far, do you feel that this is the case? They sure seem pretty positive to me for the most part. They are all on my original post if you haven't seen them.

When I said acclaim, I meant serious acclaim, like 'holy shit, these guys are back and ready to fuck shit up' acclaim. Like what happened with A Different Kind of Truth and Blood of the Nations. Those two albums are ones that turned preconceived notions on their head completely, everyone remembers how bad they were expecting ADKOT to be when Tattoo was released right? And how we all ate our words when the album came out and China Town, She's the Woman and As Is proceeded to fuck our couches? The point I've been making this entire time is that merely 'good' is nowhere near enough for the kind of comeback that Queensryche are trying to make- they needed to utterly blow us away, and in my humble opinion I don't think they did that.

The reviews I've read have been positive, but I don't think they've been gushing enough, and I don't think this record is strong enough, to win over fans that are already certain that the album is going to suck. Who knows, I could turn out to be totally wrong. Hell, my review could turn out to be the most negative one out there, I have no idea. We'll just have to wait and see over the next month or two when the bigger outlets release their verdicts.

Ah yes, I see what you mean there. Those reviews are definitely not that kind of acclaim for the most part.

Of course, I sure hope you're wrong too and can't wait to see what others have to say about it over the next couple of months.

New 90 second samples are on iTunes. You have to change the country to Australia to hear them or you can hear all of them together here.

I bet most on here can't wait for the album to come out so this thread can finally die out.

Their rock bottom is lower than any of us could have imagined: they're playing an abandoned limestone quarry that motorcyclists like to ride around a half hour away from the nearest town here in beautiful Southern Indiana. Kill yourselves.
