Two very underwhelming songs.. But can we expect Halford to sing as on Screaming for vengence the song? No. Do we want new music still? Perhaps.. Problem is also in the songwriting. Very contrived and cliche. Legends they are, despite.

Marcel, Randy and whom? Please fill me in on that one. Had to got to http://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yngwie_Malmsteen to refresh my memory. Not Barry Sparks, Dunaway, Sarzo, Mick Cervino, Björn Englen whom all to my knowledge should be alive still.

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/queensryche-more-details-revealed-in-settlement-in-dispute-over-ownership-of-name/ So in two years time Tate will not be able to associate his name with QR in any marketing communication. Good riddance in kingdom of obscurity. For those of you - like me - being interested in a more detailed insight in what launched the QR avalance over the two last years,

As in the case of Heart - neglecting a more Commercial 80-ies era - Triumph. As you can see on the tracklisting to the recently w(ell was it last year?)

Relief. Been though following. Tate's QR is the biggest joke I've experienced from one of my heroes during my 30+ years of being a metal/rock addict. Horrible. That farce after 15 years of downward QR spiral.. Really looking forward the next QR album. No need to rush, but I am eagerly awaiting it!

Thank God this is coming to an end. Come August Tate-fronted farce will cease to exist and let's hope Wilton and Co can put out another masterpiece asap after that and wounds will be healed / the QR brand will be fully reinstated. LaTorre was a mighty find. Think we will see one of the rare cases of a where a replacemnt of an iconic singer turns out successfully - a la AC/DC. And Accept fo

Figge fellow Swede - I enjoy and usually dig your comments! sure do. "Constant self promotion" and the like.. I have always thoroghly enjoyed to get first hand information and insight from a guy who's doing it. He is playing in very interesting settings for a living and he is sharing this with us. I for one think he has been very sincery in his approach talking to us like family. How

That singer is a true find! Sounds great in low, middle and high registers. Tone and soulfulness. Outshines his predecessor to say the least. Eden's Curse should have a bright future. Come play in Sweden.

Some additions: A few that also still having it: Glenn Hughes - his whole register, albeit somewhat different sounding. Joey Tempest - songs downtuned slightly, but still sounding great. Bryan Adams - wow - very impressed with his live singing - seems unchanged from his glorious prime days. Like Gillan - have lost that upper part of their register: Joe Elliot Rob Halford Unfo

DP Mark III might be best line up of any group, IMO. What musicianship and talent on every position! I too believe a reunion won't happen as Richie just isn't interested and does not want to "rock the boat" with his new career, which he apparently is very happy with as evident in a lenghty interview in the latest number of Sweden Rock Magazine (in which the reporter was not allowed t

Thanks for your feedback. I did actually think of parameters / definition of a comeback when launching the thread (evoked by my inclusion of Brave New World) - I did however decide not to include such in order not to limit associations and the range of suggestions. There is a subjective element to what is a comeback as well, If you don't agree on that a suggested comeback actually is a com

I do agree with you on which are the stronger vs weaker ones on the album. Some of the weaker ones are so weak I scratched my head regarding their qualty control. However - I did really enjoy most of the songs you indicated as strong. Cheers mate

To me Start from the dark had only 3-4 great/solid songs - of which the title track being the only stellar one. The one following, Secret Society, I rank as a masterpeice - very consistent - easily the best since the reunion. Glad we have different opinions - makes this board interesting. Cheers

Cheers everyone for the inspirational read on the best / weakest debut follow up albums! Came to think of another scenario where the pressure to deliver is high - the comeback albums. Pressure high in terms of living up to past glories and at the same time, depending on ambition, trying to be somewhat relevant to the current times. Which solid / less solid comeback albums are there and

No, they didn't break big outside of the Nordics with Wings of tomorrow. And within the Nordics nowhere near as big as with TFC. They did stir up quite a bit of interest with Wings of tomorrow though and got an international multi-million deal with CBS - that deal in combination with THAT song was a good thing of them.. Remember reading an interview with Klaus and Rudolf from Scorpions who

Sorry if we already had this thread - I remember the "that important 3rd album" thread a while back. Isn't the 2nd album just as important?

It is a very strong album, bringing back many of the Classic QR elements. Strong songs throughout and I do actually appreciate the shortness of them and the album as whole. The production sounds a million bucks compared to F.U. but my only remark on the album is that the production perhaps is a bit too lush and therefore lacks some edge. I can take that with a smile as the QR I grew up lov

First full listen and I Think this sounds like a true Winner! Some hooks not very immediate but I Believe I can grow to love them with a few more listens. Classic sound is back and production sounds very good I Think. Todd is Close enough to Tate to recreate the Classic vibe but has his own slant as well. Finally!

Very good call. Roxette have plenty of hidden gems on their albums. As a Swede music lover I have had no chance but to get well aquinted with those albums - part of our upbringing. Roxette have made some stellar stuff over the years, but I have always had slight problem with the programmed drums - taking away a bit of the soul and feel they could have had. Roxette does not groove :-) Neverthel
