Music we like , and anything goes , at least within reason


I saw Queensryche in concert way back in 1997. Even back then, Tate’s voice was not what it had been. But then I know he was a smoker (not sure if he still is). That definitely takes its toll when you are a singer.



I still need to really try out their music. I tried getting into Operation: Mindcrime, but that story wasted no time in making me stop listening. I can handle cheese, but something about it on that album just turns me off. I just haven’t bothered with anything else from them since.

And bear in mind, I’m complaining about cheese as a fan of Alestorm, and well, let’s just say that Alestorm’s music is as stupid as a name like that suggests:

And just as a bonus, here’s a song they made for dogs:


I should have made a remark on Operation: Mindcrime. It’s not the one to get. The music is good, but it carries an anti-Catholic message in the lyrics.

The Warning (Remastered) is good as is Empire, though the latter is a bit more mainstream. Still, Tate’s voice is awesome then.




For those with eclectic tastes

I love Esenvalds- and as I’m an English major, this composition is a poem based by one of my favourite poets, Sara Teasdale.

More than just music!

Why listen to them then?
