Critics Wrong Again?,
This review is from: Songs for the Deaf [CD & DVD Set] (Audio CD)
Now I could be wrong and this album could be a grower.But I've seldom been more disappointed than on the first few listens to the previously infallible Qeens new album.
Rated R was a metal/punk/pop classic - and had bags of the one thing this record sorely lacks - tunes.Unfortunately, Queens seem to have opted for a nu metal hotch potch of noise rather than songs.It also has irritating and pointless radio interludes between songs (you know static,crass announcers and the like) which always smacks of a band low on ideas.
The critics love this but critics never want to be honest about a band of the moment - remember the excellent reviews Oasis 3rd album garnered?
There are some good tunes on the album but far far too few for my liking.
