QUEENSRYCHE: / Re: VIP / Meet & Greet Packages

Personally, I find it unconscionable that ANY band or artist would charge fans to meet them for one photo and an autograph.  >:(

If they're so concerned about "exclusivity", they should arrange the M&G's exclusively with radio stations to win them.

Pay for a M&G? I never have, I never will!  :o... >:(... 8)

They've got a M&G package for the Winnipeg show. $175 US, which comes to roughly $230 Canadian. That's a lot of scratch. Not sure I'll be able to do it, as much as I'd like to.

I listened to the iTunes previews. They actually sound better than True Colors, that's for sure. I think the biggest thing this project has going for it is the production and songwriting, both of which Tate likely had little to do with. Maybe he wrote some lyrics, who knows.

But Tate's voice doesn't sound like complete shit here, plus it's hooky. So I'll at least grab this from Google Play when it drops and see how the whole thing is.

A Recess from My Fate and Transition (tracks 6 and 7) sound like they're the exact same song? Hahaha.

Spot on assessment Livgrnfan, the Avantasia songs have been a rare exception, everything else has all sounded the same, and like Rock said with Avantasia he only has to sing a few songs and not do long demanding performances, and Tobias certainly requires effort be put into his performances. Tate indeed probably recorded these vocals on his home computer and sent them digitally for this production. Pretty bland

90 second samples are on I-tunes.  Music is solid but unspectacular modern prog/power. Tate's vocals are easily the weak spot, powerless on every sample with vocal lines that blend into one another with none standing out, often gummy and nasal with a lot of layering and vocal effects to compensate.  It's obvious he was just picked to sing over already completed lyrics and music with little to no direction given and nobody pushing him to put any effort or passion into his performance (contrast to Avantasia).  Not a pimple on the butt of any of Todd's Queensryche albums (or his Crimson Glory song and guest spots for that matter).

Here is the Hostage demo played during the end of the 2005 Tour preceding the Mindcrime 2 album.

That video isn't up anymore. :(

This video has a full performance from the band's 2005 tour where they played the Hostage demo over the PA system.

The demo for Hostage (recorded around the Tribe era) isn't as awesome as some would have you believe, but it's still too bad the band never released an official version of it.
