Following on the heels of the unpopular Q2K album, and featuring a credibility-questionable semi-return from former guitarist Chris DeGarmo which some fans accused of being cynical, the album is sometimes unfairly dismissed as being an awful record that fans should avoid.
In my opinion there is still actually quite a lot to like about Tribe and it is by no means the band's worst outing to date. The band have always been big fans of evolution, and never made two albums in a row that sounded much alike. Tribe has its own sound like all Queensrÿche albums do, even though people sometimes lump it in with the previous two records as being `that alternative period.'
Though it uses Alternative Rock influences like Hear In The Now Frontier and Q2K as well as Alternative Metal influences like Operation Mindcrime 2, it uses them in a different way, like all Queensrÿche albums do, only this time it's a way that almost makes some concessions to their earlier sounds and consequently Tribe feels very much like Queensrÿche even though you wouldn't really expect it to given the fan reaction it received. I have to admit that after reading about its reputation, and after hearing Q2K, I didn't really expect the album to be one of the band's better efforts, but upon hearing it initially, and indeed after listening to it numerous times, I was surprised by just how much I did end up liking it.Read more ›
With "Tribe" they return to their roots of hard-edged riffs, awesome melodies, & great lyrics. All the songs are very well crafted, reminiscent of "Empire".
Chris DeGarmo joined the rest of the band during the production of this CD & you can feel the difference. Don't believe me?? Listen to the "The Art of Life".
Enjoy & turn it up!!! Make sure your receiver goes to 11 :)
I find Queensryche to be a really interesting band, meaning that I really enjoy some of their stuff and really don't like other stuff that they've done. I can't ever tell which it's going to be until after I hear it but I'm glad that they take some chances. Now, if they'll just take the chance and pull off another technical metal album again...dare to dream, right?

“Tribe” is a bit of an overlooked outing from Queensryche. Longtime Queensryche guitarist and songwriter Chris DeGarmo makes a brief return to the band on some of the tracks here... Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kevin M. Derby
A thrown-together album.
Shoddy cover/interior artwork, no lyrics in the liner notes, and short at 41 minutes, 41 seconds. Read more
Tribe is not for you if you expect to hear the old days of Queensryche. If you have an open mind then this album is very promising. Read morePublished on July 24, 2013 by matt sasseen
After going downhill in the late '90s, they find their way again. It brings the heavier sound back to Queensryche which after Empire was more melodic. Read morePublished on February 28, 2012
I hate the 1-5 star rating. I'd rather have 10 because I've rated far better albums at 3/5, but whatever. Read morePublished on September 7, 2011 by Metalhammer

I see a lot of varied opinions on Tribe. I haven't read any of the other reviews yet to see why. To begin my favorite Queensryche album is still The Warning. Read morePublished on March 23, 2009 by Mr Peabody
