You all started it by making all those jokes and then I asked for a better understanding of why you were making them. And now that they have a new singer, people are actually starting to give a fuck about them again.

1. How do you think they went from selling 8,000 copies of Dedicated To Chaos to selling 13,000 of the new album? And FU, which came out before the new album only sold 5,000.

2. And what about the fact that the new album has an average rating of 4.5 stars on Amazon while DTC and FU have only 2.5?

3. Also, look at the comments on Blabbermouth about Tate compared to QR. Tate is 95% negative and QR is 95% positive.

Anyway, I'll book QR in my back yard for a show next year and invite all of you for free.

In his defense, he does have something of a point here. I'd have to find the Blabbermouth article but QR album sales had been dropping by 50% every album following either Tribe or Mindcrime II. With such a terrible track record, bucking the trend is somewhat surprising I suppose.

Because you bought 7,000 copies?

He even rented a house to stock them. As a sign of respect, the band has made it happen that he can now have free ribbs whenever Queensyche plays the local bar in his town.

Thank you IT. And it's not surprising since they got rid of what was causing their declining record sales. The same goes with their album getting rated higher on Amazing than DTC and FU.

I'm starting to get the feeling that maybe you run the QR forum and own all the accounts.
