3 stars First time I heard this album I thought this was the biggest waste of money I could have ever have spent. But after listening to it a few more times I found the beauties of this mainstream attempt by the legendary queensryche band.... or what used to be legendary. However, this album, Q2K, isn't as bad as I found the reviews to claim it as. Sure it's not the greatest these guys have put out. After such a great release like Operation Mindcrime I don't think these guys have any genious left in them to put out another great one, escpecially after all the albums after that classic CD. Just a steady decline, don't get me wrong, Promised Land and Empire are great, but Promised Land was the the peak before the decline of this band. Q2K isn't bad, but isn't good, with a heavy mainstream feel to it, and even in my opinion somewhat lowsy lyrics the music has some foundation for a decent album. One Life turned out to be a great song, and a few others in there, but that's about all you can credit them with. Their opening song Falling Down really doesn't catch your ears to be pleasant, but if you push past that pathetic song you realize there is some good to this album, enought good that I'm going to have to put a 3 star stamp on these guys and their release. The main reason this album wasn't that great, in my opinion, was because all these songs felt just like songs. They were just notes put into a cliche structure and lack of clever lyrics were piled ontop of them. These songs seemed empty of power and emotion and a good flow of music in them. This was just one song after another hope you find one that's good enough.

3 star rating, it's good, but really nothing to put your money into unless you love the queensryche band.
