    the new album is pretty good actually, could be a little bit better in the production area, but it's a pretty decent hard rock/heavy metal mini-album. Who cares if they don't have any original members, there are no original members because 2 of them are dead and the other 2 (bass player and drummer from the late 70's) probably didn't care enough about QR....

    They should break up now. Don't get me wrong, I do love quiet riot but when Kevin dubrow died the true quiet did too. Napalm death gets away with having no original members but that's because they can still put out great consistent material

    It's well known. Quiet Riot did some great singles and had one amazing guitarist, but their albums are some of the most commercials of the time, not saying it's bad because of that, but the songwriting is quite boring for most tracks. When a band's greatest hit is a cover, don't expect a lot...

    I can honestly say that Quiet Riot really wasn't the best band around in the 80's. I find their albums to be very mediocre, but their good songs are really great! It's just sad when bands tend to do some good tracks, and the rest is just boring shit. "Metal Health" sure is a decent album, probably being their best, but there are some tracks on it that just are too weak. None of their albums are really worth listening to as a whole...

    Well, just got the new album and it sound like a bunch of demos. Very poorly produced and recorded. The live tracks are pretty rough too, but you'd expect that. No excuse on the new tracks.

    Is anybody listening to the new album with Jizzy Pearl that was released at the end of June?

    Good stuff! It's so cool that their Metal Health album beat Michael Jackson's Thriller! Take that, Jacko! :P
