1 stars This CD should have been called in WHY Queensryche put out this lame, generic, piece of crap is beyond me. QR spent the better part of 2 decades building a reputation of intelligent, cutting-edge progressive metal. Lots of us fans have been following the band since their stunning 1983 debut EP. And what thanks do we get for our time and troubles? Q2K! Like a poor fishermans tacklebox, Q2K is full of junk and no hooks!

Maybe it should have been called YDCDH2QQ...WHY DID CHRIS DEGARMO HAVE TO QUIT QUEENSRYCHE. After just one listen, (that is, IF you can make it all the way through), it becomes painfully evident how much of a force guitarist DeGarmo was in the band. Gone are the subtle nuances, quirky little chords, riffs, and dissonance that graced all their previous releases. In its place, you get 49+ minutes of mostly spastic, bombastic guitars (ho hum), one-size-fits-all rhythms (translation: boring), uninspired vocals, and the occasional "slower" number to complete your R.E.M. cycle. On the upside, DeGarmo had a "guest " spot on their latest effort TRIBE. Advice to whatever you have to do to get Chris back in the fold again. Beg, borrow, steal, kidnap, whatever! Sorry, Kelly! Advice to QR fans...avoid this dud at all costs. Q2K...NO WAY! -yak
