Interesting- are you referring to live performances or studio releases from GT? I must say that I didn't enjoy anything from what I heard of the 'Operation Mindcrime' band. I'd quite like to see him live next year, though.The more time passes, the more I tend to appreciate Geoff Tate more than Queensrÿche (which was not the case at all in 2012, I admit). That's also probably because Todd LaTorre gets on my nerves and because QR hasn't released anything really worthy of their reputation since the 2013 self-titled album.
I particularly agree with your last sentence.Interesting- are you referring to live performances or studio releases from GT? I must say that I didn't enjoy anything from what I heard of the 'Operation Mindcrime' band. I'd quite like to see him live next year, though.
On the other hand, whilst I do like the post 2013 version of Queensryche, I have to admit that it doesn't really sound much like the band in its heyday. Professionally made, slick sounding and slightly generic modern metal.
Yeah, as I said earlier in the thread, I wasn't aware that there had been another fall out. Certainly not good for credibility.This... until Todd LaTorre started speaking as if he were the leader of the band and Rockenfield's QR 2020 experience.
Re: fans of The Warning liking Toddsrÿche, I’m not a big fan of The Warning, but I sure do like me some Condition Hüman and especially The Verdict. The latter album is right up there with the band’s run from O:M through Promised Land, IMO.I didn´t want to stain the 1988 album poll thread so I´ll reply here, after @Black Bart ´s post.
Yes, I absolutely love The Warning! Together with O:M, Empire and Rage For Order the best of the Tate years. I´d rank all 3 LaTorre albums higher than Promised Land until Dedicated To Chaos and Tate´s pale solo stuff.
