This is my evidence against metal fans who believe the singer is the most important part of any band.

No way in the universe can this carry on in the same vaunted tradition as the album of its name. And it's not just because of Tate's diminished vocal abilities.

This is so fucking bad it hurts, I can't imagine a single person besides Tate enjoying this crap. Unispired is the perfect word to describe it, there's absolutely no reason for this to exist.

People really still try Tate's new projects?

Guys, I think the real question we all need to be asking right now is "a guitar in church?"

"Wake Me Up" is harmless enough. Generic and safe.

"Under Control," on the other hand, sucks my left nut harder than anything else I've heard all year. Jesus Christ, this song is bad.

Well it's nice to know that Geoff Tate's definition of heavy is still reject Soundgarden riffs. Sounds like Blaze Bayley is still making the only metal trilogy worth listening to this decade.

"Wake Me Up" has the lamest main riff imaginable. It's like he sat a guitarist down, told him to play ANYTHING, and then slapped it on the record.

And everything he does sounds like that (including the last seven or eight Queensryche albums he made). No thought, no effort. Just one boring idea after another.

I don't get it. Aren't egomaniacal musicians supposed to have really high standards? Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley are power-hungry lunatics, but you can't fault those classic KISS albums. Geoff Tate just has no quality filter at all.

At least he's safely quarantined behind a new band that nobody gives a fuck about.

Do you happen to know how he got that nickname? I've always been curious...

And for the record, Tate has apparently calmed down enough over the last 5 years, that he's already buried the hatchet with Toddryche, having turned up at one of their shows back in July, he apparently apologized for his actions and admitted that Todd is an amazing singer. Not that this forgives an atrocity like "Wot We Do" or "The Stranger" or that hilarious EPK, but still worth pointing out since people seem to still have a bit of a vendetta against him :lol:.

"Under Control" is offensively terrible. One of the worst cuts of new music from an established name I've heard in quite a while. I was gonna say that "Wake Me Up" isn't as bad, but Tate's just so out of tune and off key on this one that it makes the entire thing completely unlistenable.

I believe he was nicknamed "Oven Mitts" due to the manner in which he butchered DeGarmo's solos live.

I'm starting to get the impression that Geoff played Deus Ex once and decided to use that as the lyrical base for all the nu-OM albums.

It amazes me that either Tate and his carnival of songwriters have somehow managed to not improve or evolve in nearly 20 years, or Tate and his carnival of songwriters really think this dull, unmoving alt-rock is good.

In a way, you gotta admire Tate's doggone determination to suck. Most people would give up on sucking, but this guy sinks his teeth in and never stops.
