Re: What's spinning?
I can't really form an opinion of Queensryche, though I admit "Revolution Calling" is sort of amusingly catchy in its screechy way. I've heard the plot of Operation: Mindcrime is so utterly retarded that it makes DT's plots look like Shakespeare by comparison. "Silent Lucidity," holy crap, THIS was the most played song on MTV in 1991?!? A "Comfortably Numb" ripoff?
"Octavarium"'s title track is lame, I know that much. Worse Labrie screeching ever that I know of.
Okay, fair: DT have never had a good album cover. (I laughed my ass off at the poster for Thirteen Ghosts.)
