Tribe is the eighth full-length studio album by the Seattle based Progressive Metal band Queensrÿche. It was released in 2003 to mixed reviews, and of all of Queensrÿche's albums to date it is probably the most misunderstood and underrated.

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.

Tribe starts off with the powerful "Open". The song starts with a basic guitar chord pattern over flowing vocals. Nothing revolutionary, but it still works. The lyrical theme of the song is not being narrow minded, "open your eyes, and your mind." Nothing too cerebral, but yet, it rocks in its simplicity. The album continues forward with "Losing Myself". Losing Myself has an interesting drum intro, that segues into some soft vocals. The guitar builds in a growing crescendo, along with the vocals, "Push it further baby, careful with this burnout now!" This song is a perfect listen while driving, and perhaps this has to do with Geoff Tate's motorcycle trip across America (Neil Peart anyone?) that fueled his lyrics for this album. Next up is, "Desert Dance" which has a great guitar lead in the intro. Not the complex Queensrÿche of yore, but it still rocks. The first three songs on Tribe set a great, fast paced, rocking intro for the album, but "Falling Behind" slows things down for a while. Falling Behind is another stellar track, "We're running so fast to keep from falling behind." I like the simple guitar lead during the chorus, it fits well with the more laid back approach to songwriting found on Tribe. "Great Divide" is one of personal favorites from Tribe and is proof that the Wilton/Tate writing team is nothing to take lightly. "Take the flag we wave, the freedoms that we sing. Without respect for one another, it doesn't mean a thing." Tate still is singing with emotion after all these years. "Rhythm of Hope" starts off slow like Falling Behind, and while not one of my favorites, it's still a good song. The title track starts thing off with some crunchy heavy guitars that quickly get your attention. Tate delivers the lyrics in a near whisper until the chorus, "We're the same tribe.Read more ›

Queensryche - my favorite rock band of all time. Personally, their last great CD was 1994s dark & moody "Promised Land". Since then they have released fairly mediocre albums both sonically & commercially.
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'm in the minority here as I really liked what the 'ryche did on Q2K. I thought it worked. Less so here though not too far from Q2K IMO. Cleaner production and with less distortion this album, with some decent songs, just isn't as interesting or as challenging as their earlier work. Like on Q2K their sound here is that of modern rock, not metal. There's a lot of lyrical encouragement and optimism as well as social complaint and criticism. I like the sentiments of the song "Tribe" with Tate showing off some nice vocals, "Rhythym of Hope" appropriately sweeps us up in hopeful keyboard swells, "Desert Dance" has nice moments with overlaid vocals, and the opener "Open" is a decent rock number with a nice beat. Some of the other songs, however, don't have much to recommend them like "Losing Myself" and "The Great Divide"; they're just boring. And others still just misfire in some way, like the album closer "Doin' Fine" which is a dud song and like a gospel # but with guitars. "The Art of Life" is a boring, pretentious blunder and "Blood" just isn't sharp or heavy enough musically.

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?
