About this album

Hear in the Now Frontier is the sixth studio album by progressive metal band Queensrÿche, released in 1997.

The album debuted at #19 but quickly vanished from the charts. The musical sound and style of the album was more basic and stripped down than anything the band had released to date, and some fans and critics pointed to the grunge musical style as being a major influence on the record. Despite the reaction, the singles “Sign of the Times” and “You” received substantial airplay.

During Queensrÿche’s tour in support of the album, the band’s longtime label, EMI America Records, went bankrupt. Queensrÿche was forced to use their own money to finance the remainder of the tour, during which founding member Chris DeGarmo announced he was leaving the band. DeGarmo would return to play and co-write five songs for Tribe, in 2003 but did not officially rejoin.

The band played only half the album on its 1997 tour with 6 songs still unplayed to date including: “Cuckoo’s Nest”, “Hero”, “Miles Away”, “All I Want”, “Anytime/Anywhere” and “sPOOL”. However, “sPOOL” has been played by Geoff Tate’s band during the 2002 tour supporting his own solo album.

    Oddly enough, the only song that doesn't bother the crap out of me is "All I Want." Only because hearing Chris' voice somehow convinces my brain that I'm not listening to Queensryche completely suck ass. Nice trick.

    Some albums just will never grow on you. This is one for me. Some fine songs later on on the album, but overall... not for me.

    I realize I'm probably going to get pelted with bricks for this, but this album actually holds a special place in my heart, if only for the fact that "You" was my first Queensryche song ever and played as the soundtrack to many a poorly-played pool game at the bowling alley.

    Collection of a mid-standard rock songs. Use once and throw it away.

    Maybe a good album but certainly not a good Queensyche album

    Chasing Blue Sky is certainly a rich hearkening back into the style of their earlier work. The work of "Hear in the Now Frontier" seems to fall vicitm like many productions whose artists have become pressured to produce rather than being allowed to let the music flow from their heart and soul. These guys are talented. I hope they find that center out of which such beautiful music as "Silent Lucidity," for example, flowed.

    Sign of the Times is great but like a lot of Queensryche albums it has a lot of filler.
