    Bad Hear in the Now Frontier era style vocals from Tate, a crappy Kelly Grey guitar solo, and a tacky low budget video; you're right, this is exactly what I expected from him.

    So without expectation I tried to watch earlier today, tried is the key word here. I did not get through it, Kelly Grey sucks the suck out of suck.

    that "Burn" sounds a lot like "Vasoline" from STP. Especially the chorus

    Considering that I expected it to be soaking wet dogshit, yes, it was better than expected. Still miles below "enjoyable" though.

    Yeah, that's more like the Tate led Ryche stuff, post Promised Land ... uninspired, lackluster, and pointless. The best word to describe that song is boring.

    As someone who's hated everything Tate has done the last 5+ years, it's hard to admit this, but I really dig Re-Inventing the Future (from post #1). He definitely hit an old school QR vibe there.

    Here it is again inline, since the prior post wasn't:



    On the other hand, Burn is meh and the video is terrible IMO.

    That tends to happen when you purposefully recycle riffs and drum fills from your older songs ;)

    Geoff Tate Recalls 'The Warning' Was A Disappointment to Queensryche

    When asked the bands mindset during the recording of Queensrcyhe first Full length album The Warning: "It was a real disappointment to everybody in the band at the time, cause of course it was taken out of our hands and mixed by somebody who didn’t care about it and and didn’t want the input of the band and it was quite a shocking experience."

    Latest song The Stranger makes the already utterly shite Burn sound like a masterpiece! Re-inventing must have been a complete fluke and all enthusiasm for the album has been wiped clean away in a shitstorm of grungy nu-metallish crap.

    Yeah, this is taking awful to new levels..... These lyrics look like they were written by my fourth grader. To think that he was once associated with the term "thinking man's metal".

    Frontiers should have released ONLY the first track prior to release, as I cannot imagine these last two songs helping their cause at all.

    That was a new record! I don't think I made it past 20 seconds. Well done, Geoff!

    You can't run from the stranger, fuckers!

    I listened to all 3 songs and I can't hate it.
    Re-inventing...was good/listenable...
    The 2nd was awful...
    the 3rd is okay...it has its retard moments but it doesn't make me retch with wild abandon.
    I can honestly say...
    I still won't be buying it lmao
