The newest Queesnryche album, while not spectacular. reminded me what I once loved about the band. These samples sounds like something left over from the HiTNF or Q2K session and reminds me of the empty husk they became. I thought maybe going solo might be his chance to get away from a genre he seemed tired of and disparaged at every turn. Instead, he copies the Tri-ryche logo and then turns out middle of the road grunge era hard rock.
