Sign of the Times: The Best of Queensryche
Title: Sign of the Times: The Best of Queensryche
Notes: The above is the tracklist for the digital (iTunes/Amazon) version of this compilation. The physical one-disc version removes "Empire" and "You" in favor of tracks from the non-original lineups of the band. I have chosen to only include the original lineup tracklist here. A two-disc collector's edition (physical version) contains four demos from MYTH, Tate's band prior to Queensryche (which are completely different than the QR songs, and are only familiar in title and a few lyric lines); some b-sides, and some unreleased material, including "Justified," which was a final track penned for Tribe that is discussed below. That collector's edition second disc tracklist is as follows:
Take Hold of the Flame (MYTH demo)
* -- In 2007, Chris DeGarmo hooked up with Queensryche to finish the track "Justified," which was originally written and partially recorded for the 2003 release, Tribe (see album section for additional info). The track was then placed on the "Deluxe Edition" of the band's Sign of the Times: The Best of Queensr˙che collection that was released that year. "Justified" was the single that was sent out in support of the release.
Chris and Geoff also did some promotional interviews for the album. Click here for a video interview with DeGarmo and Tate that ran on Amazon.com.
Talking Metal also did a phone interview with both DeGarmo an Tate in 2007 to promote the release of Sign of the Times: The Best of Queensryche. Click below to download that podcast and listen to the interview:
