I generally stick with bands that have made years of mistakes (Paradise Lost, Tiamat, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Fear Factory, Machine Head, In Flames, Soilwork, Evergrey, Pain of Salvation etc.....) I'm just one of those fans I guess. Most of those bands bounce back at some point.
Such a shame that it took until 2006 for Queensryche to tour Australia, and they were looooong past their used by date. Was still awesome to hear Mindcrime songs live, but not as awesome as it would have been 20 years ago.
I gave Mindcrime 2 a chance, and thought it was okay. I think the fact that it was the sequel to one of my top 10 favourite albums kinda impacted heavily upon how I felt about it.
On the one hand, if it WASN'T the sequel to Mindcrime I probably would have liked it more, on the other hand as their output has been shite for so long I probably would have then ignored its release completely
