He sounds great in those and Andy LaRocque is an awesome and underrated guitarist.

They're more of a novelty and female rock history item. I don't think there is a big draw or demand for that band monetarily speaking and I think that's why it really isn't on Joan's bucket list. She draws more on her own I think than the need to split the proceeds with three or four other equal bandmates that will draw the same size crowds that she presently does.

I really like man the machine a lot, but I agree, I think dark reverie is a little better. Better song structure and I like the vocal changes and the drums and guitar harmonies are better in this one. Very solid song after a few listens. Agree with NJ's assessment that these songs are pretty impressive given the absence of Scott. They didn't miss a beat here. If this is a good representation of the quality of material on the whole record, I don't give a fuck if he comes back or not honestly  8)

I was hoping he may have ended up on a few more songs on this record than just Discordia, but oh well at least he did one  8)

The End Machine is Dokken's classic lineup minus Don and substituting him with current Warrant singer Robert Mason. We all know Don Dokken's range has suffered immensely, so this should be a pretty interesting offering, this band playing with a better caliber (at this point) singer. First song released "Alive Today" is pretty decent I think.

Alive Today

I think the album finally gets done this year, as for whether it will be anywhere in the same league as their previous output after such a long layoff, remains to be seen.

The Stray Cats owe this dude a boat load of money, a shame he isn't around to collect it.  C:-)

This one is much better, this song sounds at least like an attempt to sound like The Guess Who. It is definitely a stretch with one original member (and not all that significant of one at that in the context of their songwriting, see Bachman/Cummings for that job description). But this at least a likeable tune.

Her first two albums rocked, after that got a little too polished.

I'm really fuckin digging Man the Machine, that song is growing on me bigtime after numerous listens.  8) I can't wait to hear the next one.

Cmon man Ripper wails on that, he's got a Priest Painkiller vibe goin there. You don't like the vocals  ??? Agree the bass could be pumped up a bit. Caffrey kicks serious ass on this. I like it a lot, have listened to it several times.  8)

That was cool, loved that. I think both Ray and Jon had a good bit to drink that evening  :o but that was pretty cool, I get the impression they were fan boys of one another  ;D

I'm personally cool with Casey. As Buelinator said (by the way, what's a Buelinator?  :-\) trying to find an exact clone on style and abilities and his little intricacies would be quite the undertaking.

  Casey comes from a twenty plus year stint with another progressive metal band in Kamelot, who seems to have a nice pretty loyal following themselves. BTW, in case anybody didn't notice they too are now relegated to just two original members in Thomas Youngblood (guitar) and bassist Sean Tibbetts (he left the band two years into their formation and was gone for seventeen fucking years until returning in 2009). So there is another band down to two members. Casey has a killer new drum setup too I might add  8)

  I think they will be just fine. The grand majority of fans that post on their facebook page are very loyal, very protective and seem to be very favorable towards Casey. The other thing that doesn't hurt is Todd is building himself quite a few followers and a fan base in his own right, so he brings more people out to the shows, add into that Casey's fans (that may not have otherwise been real up on their Queensryche knowledge) that he brings out, and Parker's people and add those to the people that are paying attention to the much better new music of the last few records and then the die hard bunch and you have the ingredients to do alright , if not a little better than alright.   

I bought Mindcrime and Empire. Regret doing it, the bonus material wasn't much and already had the three songs you mentioned on the 2 cd sign of the times best of. The sound quality was better on the originals than the remastered version I think. I didn't bother getting Warning or Rage for that reason. So I'm sure I'll skip the 30th edition of Empire too.
