Sorry, but Queensryche BLOWS!

I agree Jason, Queensryche blows! They blow most other bands on this planet away! While Rage For Order,Operation:Mindcrime,Empire,and Promised Land are by far their best stuff, Tribe is a breath of fresh air when compared to 95% or more of the "music" being released to the masses these days. Unless you have something against intense vocals and good musicianship, give it a listen. The first single "Open" is AWESOME.

From: Rycheage Date: September 14, 2003 at 17:22
I agree. "Open" is awesome. But everything after that seems like it should've been on Tate's solo CD, which was stripped down in the sound department. This disc is even more of a disappointment than "Q2K" or even "Hear in The Now Frontier". What a let down. "Open" is awesome though.

From: Trick Taylor Date: October 2, 2003 at 13:56
To say a Queensryche disc is self-indulgent is like calling a Poison disc stupid, it's just too easy. On Tribe the Ryche slip headlong into self-important preaching over muddy song structures. They have always been grand, but gone is a sense of pop know-how. I will say that a few tunes (namely "Doin Fine") display a slight classic rock sensibility that is exciting. Overall I had no fun listening to this, and rock should be fun on some level. I will be at MPLS show on Oct 11 nonetheless.

From: David Date: December 1, 2003 at 19:46
I thought this album rocked (From "Open" to "Doin' Fine") So it's not like "Empire" or anything else, a band's got to change somehow it gets old playing the same old stuff. Tribe - ROCKS

From: howe Date: December 22, 2003 at 16:11
Yeah, Tribe rocks!!! I bow to bands like Queensryche, bands that are paving new roads for Hard Rock. This album sounds modern and is definetly different from what rock bands did in the 80's and the 90's, but's it's full of great ORIGINAL songs, and these guys have always been good at that! I love this album, still I understand how easy it is to hate it... Anyway, just give it the benefit if doubt.

From: Date: January 12, 2004 at 23:58
I think it is as poor as it gets. Open, Desert Dance, Falling Behind and Tribe cut it for me. IMO, they should have Tate sing EXCLUSIVELY and Wilton and Rockenfield compose. Too much talent wasted. I love 'em though. I pray they'll come back to their roots.

From: Metal Pete Date: February 19, 2004 at 18:59
So Tate does not even sing all the songs now?? Well count me out. LIke Rik is to Triumph, so Geoff is to the Ryche. At least the Ryche left us with 4 or 5 stellar records to crank. Will keep watching for the real comeback...good talent in this band that is somehow lost lately!

From: David Date: March 7, 2004 at 0:11
THIS ALBUM ROCKED!!!!! I dunno how any of you can say that this album sucked, this album, I thought, was one of the best.

From: Eryche Date: March 13, 2004 at 17:34
Jason FA-Q ... Thanks for starting everyone talking about Queensryche. Your negative views get people fired up! But why don't you sell your CD's and stop going to the shows if you hate them so much. Let others enjoy what you obviously can not.

From: Mike P. - TX Date: April 3, 2004 at 19:42
I can't get over all the yes-men who rave about every new QR release, and then later everyone seems to slam it. You'd think if Tate farts on stage they'd think its great. I have every QR release. EP-Mindcrime were great. Empire was very good, but the beginning of the end; I keep getting disappointed each time after (with a FEW good songs on each album). I only like "Open" on Tribe. Why do I keep coming back? Maybe I'm hoping they'll prove me wrong. Like what I say or not, at least I'm honest.

From: miro Date: May 1, 2004 at 9:04
After 2 weaker albums,this is a very good one,Queensryche is still my absolute NR.1 Band!"OPEN" is a Killer,the other songs are good too. I like it & say i am happy that Ryche is back on track!

From: velez Date: May 6, 2004 at 19:33
tribe es el peor album de queensryche, despues de promised land han ido en picada y tribe es lo peor que pudieron sacar, esperemos que ya no puedan caer mas bajo. alguien me puede decir que ha sido de chris degarmo?

From: ydewata Date: May 21, 2004 at 7:29
It was hard to listen to Tribe at first but it grew more and more as more often I listened to this album. It's not a 100% rock album. It even has some of Geoff's "style" from his solo album. BUT this album is recommended for any Queensryche fans....

From: Metal T Date: June 4, 2004 at 19:18
Yep, you guessed it ......"Tribe" is a pile of dog sh*t ! Queensryche 1983-1989 R.I.P.

From: dckiss Date: June 4, 2004 at 20:11
Mike P opinions are like A$$holes everyone has one. Just because someone really likes an album doesn't make them a yes man or else dishonest. Same goes if they dislike it. My opionion is that this is an improvement over Q2k, but like Q2k there are weak moments. Bottom line is its worth having if your a fan, but the songwriteing is just not there like it was in the bands hay day. The need a jolt at the guitar position something I believe chris degarmo provided in the day. How about Doug Aldridge?

From: Nicolas Date: August 23, 2004 at 14:20
Despues de Empire, Queensryche murio, ya no es una banda de heavy metal, sino de rock alternativo

From: Propane Date: November 30, 2004 at 22:10
I bought this under the assumption of Chris Degarmo contributing to the thing. I was once again, wrong. Very meager attempt at music once again. I'm of the Metal T influence: QR, RIP. Don't buy this, it's a complete waste of your hard earned money: 0/10.

From: Chad Date: March 12, 2005 at 23:26
Just so I can go on record to never agree with Propane.....1/10

From: Geoff Date: August 25, 2005 at 22:18
Another one I couldn't stand. Not one song here grabbed me at all so I had to pass on it. Just don't think I was cut out to be a fan of this band.

From: Lennie Date: August 26, 2005 at 7:10
Geoff, one qu....why did you keep buying albums of a band you clearly dislike?? Or did you just borrow a copy? No disrespect and in general I think your comments are all spot on, but this just seemed a bit weird! For the record I agree and have never ben a fan of Queensryche............cheers

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2005 at 9:16
Hey Lennie, no offense taken. I have been fired up before by people who continually say how bad an artist is but appear to buy all their stuff (I remember Propane and LA Guns). Annoys the shit out of me. For the record I own 'Empire' and have owned both 'Promised land' and 'Hear in the now' and sold them. I must confess I was actually browsing the net the other day and saw a Queensryche discography for download and as I am not a fan, but still interested I gave it a go. Glad I didn't buy them

From: Wachen Date: January 25, 2009 at 11:32
After the disappointing "Q2K" this is really a return to form. This is the album that should've been the sequel to "Promised Land". Some so and so songs like "Desert Dance" and "Doin' Fine" drags down the disc. But when it's good, it's brilliant. Cuts like "Open", "The Great Divide" and "Rhythm Of Hope" are instant QR-classics. I really hope these three songs return to their setlist in one way or another. 8/10

From: Wardy Date: June 6, 2012 at 8:13
With the current state of Queensryche I was wondering if somehow I'd gotten it wrong of late but no, there's gems to be had & Tribe is a strong point. While DeGarmo's limited return didn't see the return to form most had hoped for, he and the essence of Queensryche can still be heard. The foot is off the throttle but Tribe still delivers, OPEN kicks hard with Tate in comfortable but splendid voice. Elsewhere Tate uses spoken word to good effect on both the title track & THE ART OF LIFE, both featuring solid chorus'. Balladry rears its head more often but only in DOIN FINE does it get slightly naff, for the most part the softer moments are handled in decent Ryche fashion. Blood wasn't finished but remains lyrically cool, as does most of the album. The faults were no solos which was insane (OPEN is begging for a solo) & the inclusion of LOSING MYSELF written by Tate & an outsider which is plain horrible. The sum of its parts was the strength of the band & Tribe reminds us of that. 8/10

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 20, 2015 at 19:51
Quite a dull album in here...pretty plain and simple if compared with other releases of the band(don't even need for me to say this because is more than obvious)...only for fine moments in tracks 1,3,4(nice)& 8...60/100
